In connection with the total sale of fake shoes in Russia, you just need to know at least the elementary rules for checking shoes for originality.

Experienced buyers or employees of shoe factories can already determine the originality of shoes by their appearance. For example, according to the standard line on leather shoes should be at a distance of 1 millimeter. Originality is also determined by the quality of the skin and other indirect features.

What to do to a person who has no experience in acquiring or manufacturing shoes, but wants to buy original shoes? There are some general principles when checking shoes for originality.

The first thing that needs to be done when buying shoes is to check the article by the iGepir program, when scanning a barcode, it will give the necessary information.

However, the above method is not always applicable: some large stores stick the manufacturer’s bar code with their own.

Then you need to find a label with the article number and batch number.

For example, Adidas on sneakers is a paper label, Puma on sneakers is sewn to the insole and so on.

On the Adidas sneaker label, the batch number is indicated at the bottom right of the label.

Next, we compare the article number and the batch number on the box, the paper label with the numbers on the labels inside the sneakers themselves.

They must be the same!

Further we compare the ordinal unique number of the left and the right.

It must be different!

This method is applicable to all brand shoes of the largest manufacturers, manufactured by the factory method.

In addition, each manufacturer has its own methods of protection against counterfeiting. For example, in Puma sneakers, this is a seal attached to a sneaker.

It is also necessary to check the quality of the reflux of the sole. In Chinese, there are often defects.

In order to start production faster, the Chinese do not have time to adjust the technical process, so the sole will not be the same as the original.

Also, the materials that go to the original shoes will not be used.

CTOTS 012

It should be recognized that the Chinese fake looks more and more close to the original.

At the moment, the Chinese are well fake even insoles from a fake.

Boost sneakers can be checked with a flashlight - natural Boost shines through.

What is bad is not original shoes? If you omit the question of conscience, because of the missed money by the manufacturer of the original shoe, since it is unknown to the Chinese with the Russians, then you usually get shoes that wear out quickly and are inconvenient to wear. For example, three stripes on the heel of this Beluga are made for a reason, and support the heel so that it does not crawl, but on the forgery it is erased in a month.

Also, the fakes have a completely different structure of the sole, and after a month or two, with a lot of weight, it begins to fall apart, since the partitions in the sole cannot withstand the load; The original sole is flat and has plastic reinforcement.

That is, paying sometimes, the amount is not much less than the original you get shoes that you can not wear.

CTOTS 018

In fairness, it should be noted that the prosperity and spread of fakes contributes, for example, the company Adidas with extremely low quality manufacturing in the Chinese division. For example, in this neck sneakers stupidly does not fit the standard leg, for which they are intended.

Good luck everyone! Take care of money and health!
