Hello, is someone knows about this Nike supplier in China Chen Davis? He's one of the authentic supplier here in Salehoo but the problem I have this guy is he doesn't have website and he does not accept secured payment such as paypal and credit card. I just want to know the credibility of this guy, is he legit Nike supplier? Does anyone had an experience with this guy?

That's the exact problem that i have with this guy. I asked him if he can fax me the price quote of the nike air jordan that he carries but until now i haven't receive any. He emailed me saying he will send it but i don't know if he is Legit. I will let you know as soon as he fax the price quote. I also asked him if he can fax me a copy of a certificate of authenticity of the nike along with the price quote. He told me his minimum order is 240.

He fax me the price quote of the nike shoes they carry. First of all here's their telephone number (86)-138-50255280 and Fax number (86)-594-6639051. Here are the price list he fax me today,

Nike air force one lowcut all white: $45 per pair
Nike air force one mid all white: $55 per pair
Nike air jordan lowcut: $60 per pair
Nike air jordan: $65 per pair
Nike dunk SB Lowcut: $55 per pair
Nike Dunk SB High: $65 per pair
Nike Shox R4/OZ/NZ/R3/R5: $50 per pair
Nike Airmax 95/97/2003: $55 per pair
Nike Airmax Ltd/90/360: $56 per pair
Jordan Defining Moment Package: $190 per set
Nike Boots: $70 per pair

and here's what they said 'We offer sea shipping for bulk order, Like 3400 pairs~9400 pairs. Will be shipped by sea via 20fts/40fts/45fts containers. For smaller orders, shipping will be by air.'

This fax came from David Chen of Seven-Degree Inc. They're from 386# Meiyuan road, ChenXian Zone, Putian city, Fujian, China.

This is all the info i have as of now. I don't know if this guy can be trusted or not but if you ever purchase from them, ask for a sample first. Ask SaleHoo staff if they can investigate this company if they are legit and if their product are authentic. I hope this helps.

Thats a hard one to say . If they are quoting a sea shipping its possible they are a manufacturer. Only way to tell is to buy from them.

I have heard of salehoo member buying from the Nike Supplier in our listings and so far i havent seen any complaints.

Nike makes it money off of sweatshop labor. All thier factories are located in china and singapore. Where there is no min wage. Thats why Nike's Owner is the 6th richest man in the world because nike pays pocket change for wages and reaps the profits off of others suffering..

Ok here's what he said. He said that they accept sample order of 120 pairs per style/color. They accept bank transfer only! He said not to worry about customs because he will put the paperworks so customs will not take the product. He also sent me the nike paperworks via email stating that their company is authorized by nike to make and sell nike products. What do you guys think? Is this company Legit?

Ask if they are willing to go through Link hidden: Login to view for the first purchase to gain your trust. Do not accpet any other escrow company as escrow.com is licensed by

California Department of Corporations
license #9631867

If they are willing then its a sure thing that these guys are legit. If they try to push you into using a chineese escrow service I would avoid doing that.

But all in all it sounds like they are legit as they are willing to try and prove thier worth. But its up to you to take the risk on such a large sample order.

But its highly likely they are a manufacturer as almost all nike products are made in China.

Mr Chen Davis told me also that he is authorized nike supplier and the same time he has access to variant quality shoes. We're just gonna pick which one we need. He offer me also to order at least 3 pairs sample order to check the quality. I been trading shoes from various suppliers in china for the past 2 years now some of them providing me variant, fake or copy but some are just totally scum- they just take your money after you paid them. Jimmy is right try to pay this by escrow account or ask him sample order at least 3 - 4 pairs just to check the authenticity.Let us know when you find out. Goodluck.

I ask Chen Daves if they are willing to accept any other payments like escrow and he said that escrow don't work in china. And their sample order is 120 pairs. I'm not about to give this guy the money until i'm sure he's legit. I'm planning to pay them a visit but i don't know when.

Chen Daves sent me a copy of a certificate that says their company is authorized to make and sell nike products but my question is, can they fake this? i mean alter it? I have the copy stating that their company is authorized.

in reality people can fake just about anything these days. I alos would use a third party escrow company like escrow.com. Make sure yoiu pick the escrow company because there are also fake escrow companies out there. Just my two cents.

Mr. Chen emailed that alot of payment option in china are not available to them so only bank transfer are accepted. He said that not that they don't want other payment option. He also said that he can take a picture of the stock or deposite 50% of the money then after shipment is release pay the other half. I have a lawyer and i ask her if it is posible to know that this company is legitimate. I will let you know if it is.

Here's exactly what he said in the email:

In China, Transfer is the mainly payment .
Many others payment can't works here, not we don't accept them.

We are willing to co-op with you. Or you can pay 50% first , and after
goods are ready before shipping, We will take pictures of all the goods in stock.
Then make the remain payment.

Regards!
Chen

Hi everyone! I just called nike and asked them if Link hidden: Login to view is authorized and they said no they're not. They don't sell their product directly so i just want to warn you guys about David Chen. I told them exactly what David Chen told me and i sent them the copy of certificate that Mr. david sent me and they said they are not legitimate. :shock:

Thank you guys for all the hardwork that you been through. It is really hard to find a true authentic nike supplier in China nowadays. Although, the quality of the variant shoes are quite impressive but if you are Jordan lover you can spot the shoes if fake just by looking the actual size. Normally fake shoes are a lot smaller than originals. I have different Jordan shoes here which I got it from china supplier. Honestly, its been over 2 years now and I'm still looking for authentic supplier I don't know if I ever find them.
