A substantial amount of the folks that visited my site were looking at the Real vs Fake content and it makes perfect sense. The market has been so flooded with near perfect fake sneakers that the average person and even the most trained authenticator have a difficult time identifying a replica shoe from its authentic counterpart. Every time you purchase a shoe from a n unauthorized vendor ( third party merchant), there are strong chances that you were probably sold a counterfeit. I receive tons of emails from folks asking me to authenticate or legit check their sneakers. So I decided to write this post to help you perform that task from the comfort of your own house. Here are quick, simple and effective ways to authenticate your own sneakers.
Sneakers without the QR Code & RFID tag
1. You’ve already heard this one before, if it’s too good to be true then it’s a scam; in other words if the price of the shoe you are purchasing is ridiculously low, then stay away from it. I understand that this isn’t the most practical way to authenticate your sneakers, but it’s a good start.
2. Check out my Real vs Fake page ( which is house to over 100 posts with slides showing you differences between fake and legitimate sneakers ). Why is this important? Usually the same flaws are repeated on similar silhouettes. So you can use the post as a backdrop to authenticate your own shoe
Sneakers with the QR Code & RFID tag
1. Sneaker brands are aware of the amount of money they leave on the table because of counterfeits and they are constantly trying to implement new technologies to protect their commodities. The advent of the QR code and the RFID is probably the best thing that could’ve happened in the sneaker world. I wrote a post about the Qr code be sure to check it out
