On August 5, 2010, the Hungarian customs officials seized 26,000 pairs of counterfeit sneakers bearing well-known marks, worth over EUR 1.8 million (USD 2.3 million).

The sneakers were seized at the Rajka border crossing in northwestern Hungary after being discovered in two tractor-trailers with Latvian license plates. The goods were reportedly made in Vietnam and were supposed to be exported from Slovakia to Italy. The tractor-trailer drivers have not been taken into custody, but are being investigated.
