Brand names vs. knockoffs

You can save a lot of money by going for the usually cheaper knockoff.
You can save a lot of money by going for the usually cheaper knockoff purchases: store-brand food, for example. However, there are items out there that deserve the brand name option. AskMen has written up a good article that breaks this down by category:
1.Milk: The USDA regulates the homogenizing process necessary to bottle and sell milk, so there is no reason why you shouldn't save a few bucks by opting for the store brand.
2.Athletic Shoes: This is a category in which you should really spring for a reliable brand name. Whether you exercise occasionally or run marathons on a regular basis, injury prevention is key.
3.Knives: You only need one or two versatile, high-quality pieces, such as a Henckels Santoku, rather than an entire set of cheap plastic ones you will have to replace every few months.
How about you - what are the items that you consistently buy because of the brand name?
