The scale is staggering; in a single seizure German customs officers seized what at the time was the world’s largest haul of counterfeit goods, including nearly 1 million pairs of knockoff Nike sneakers along with about 105,000 pairs of fake Adidas and Puma sports shoes. Also impounded were 76,760 knockoff watches and 1,454 toys. The haul totaled 117 commercial shipping containers.
