Knock Off Designer Shoes

Women love their shoes. Even the sturdiest, most practical footwear can cost hundreds of dollars as popular designer brands proclaim that the wearer is a person of exquisite taste and a woman of means.

No wonder, then, that women (yes, men too) of more modest means are making their fashion statements shod in the cleverest of knock off brands. After all, scrutinizing a person ‘s shoes closely to identify imposters would be tackier than passing off your replicas as authentic designer brands.

Replica Designer Shoes

Knock off designer shoes mimic the design of brand name shoes. Some replicas use the same logo as the designer brand, even though the practice is illegal.

Many replica shoes imitate only the design and color scheme of the shoe without using the logo. These types of knock offs can be found at a variety of stores, including Pay Less, Target and Wal-Mart. At these stores, you can find imitation Ugg boots, Converse sneakers and Christian Louboutin heels at a much lower price than the original designer brands. You can find a Christian Louboutin knock off red pump at Target for $25 and get the same look as the original that normally sells for $500. While a few details might be lacking, the overall style and effect is similar.

If you ‘re interested in buying replica designer shoes with brand name logos, inspect the quality of the shoe. These shoes are made with cheaper materials and aren ‘t likely to be as durable as the originals.

Popular Replica Brands

A few of the designer brands that are popular in the replica shoe market include:

  • Air Jordan
  • Chanel
  • Christian Louboutin
  • Coach
  • Dolce and Gabbana
  • Gucci
  • Louis Vuitton
  • Manolo Blahnik
  • Uggs.

Almost every popular brand has its imitator.

Where to Find Knock Off Shoes

Trying to find replica designer shoes with a designer logo can be challenging. Brand name companies don ‘t want people to buy knock offs that include their logo. Companies such as Chanel routinely monitor the Internet to discourage knock off sales.

The most likely place to find replica Gucci shoes, Louis Vuitton shoes, knock off Chanel Cambon shoes or fake Jordans is from an online vendor. A simple search produces dozens of websites that sell these shoes for $50 or less. The actual price of the originals can range from $100 to $500. However, remember that these are counterfeit shoes and not of the same quality as the brand name products.

Another source of replica designer shoes is online auction sites such as eBay. Buyers interested in a product can preset the maximum amount they would pay for the product and place a bid. These websites usually have an abundance of replica designer shoes for sale to the public.

The obvious disadvantage of buying online is that you can ‘t try on the shoe to determine whether it fits properly. Check the vendor ‘s return policy. Chances are, if the shoe doesn ‘t fit, you still have to wear it or donate it to charity.

If you have doubts about the shoes you ‘re buying, check out retail stores such as PayLess and Target for a similar style to achieve the look you want.
