It is said that over forty percent of online stores that sell sneakers are fake. This is attributed to the fact that many online stores sell counterfeit sneakers to unsuspecting buyers while passing them of as the real deal. Many buyers have been conned because they do not know what to look out for when buying sneakers online.

Things to look out for when buying sneakers

It is important that you educate yourself by visiting local shoe stores in your area to examine authentic sneakers so that you are able to differentiate between a genuine and fake sneaker.

If you are looking through online stores for a sneaker and you see a deal that is too good to be true on a shoe that you want, it is probably a counterfeit product designed to lure you by the reduction of the price.

Also beware of online stores that do not allow you to use your credit card or services of money transfer services like PayPal to pay for your products. If they insist on a check or money order then do not buy from them.

Always check the reviews given by other people on the online store you want to buy sneakers from and also how long they have been in business. This will indicate to you the kind of business you are dealing with.

Look at every detail of the sneaker you want to buy by enlarging the photo so that you can easily spot any inconsistencies in colors, packaging, stitching, logos as well as other specifics that might not look like the authentic sneaker.

Other online stores may indicate that they are selling custom made shoes and these are usually enhanced, altered or changed in some way. There are customized sneakers made by custom designers out there, but you have to be careful with online stores selling "customs" as they might be selling counterfeit shoes.

Furthermore, descriptions such as samples, variants, customs and factory variants are signs of counterfeit products. Also, samples made by authentic athletic sneaker companies are usually in size nine and if you see a sample with all the sizes, then they are likely to be fakes.

Generally, do not assume that the picture that you see on the website is what you are going to get after you buy the product. Many online stores that sell sneakers use authentic photos but send you counterfeit shoes or send nothing at all.
