Sentence: John went to the flea market looking for a bargain. He found one vendor selling sports shoes at extremely low prices compared to retail stores. A minor inspection exposed them to be counterfeet. Air Jordons for $20? Another tip-off might have been the Nike ”swoosh” being applied with spray paint.

Etymology: counterfeit (made in exact imitation of something valuable or important with the intention to deceive or defraud) + feet (plural form of foot)
