    Hi everybody. I need help. Does anybody know what a "dodgy trainer and dodgy fags" are? I'm translating a tv series in italian and the plot deals about a murder enquiry. The victim has a hystory of fraud and blackmailing and at a certain point the DC says: "They're making good money, but off the radar; so small but lots of it. So, waht are we saying? Weed? DODGY TRAINERS, DODGY FAGS?" What is it exactly???
    Tks!
    Thanks

    I'm not British, and this is BE but I believe they're talking about counterfeit running shoes and smuggled cigarettes.

    Edit: Note your title should be dodgy trainers otherwise it sounds like you're talking about a unreliable fitness instructor. :D
