Whenever we are purchasing a Branded Shoe, The first thing comes to mind is that the shoe you are purchasing is a genuine original branded shoe or something like first copy branded shoe or a duplicate product. In this Blog, we will see some tricks to find out the difference First Copy Shoes vs Original India| The Real Difference
First, let us find what is First Copy and how to differentiate them
Mostly made in Asian countries that (China, Thailand, etc). They are the replicas of Orignal. If you look at these shoes at a glance you won’t be able to find the difference between the original and first copy. They are much cheaper. They do not come with warranty and sometimes don’t even come with the brand’s box. 2. Price is what determines the quality difference between the original and first copy of Adidas shoes. Replica Adidas shoes are easily available at a very low price. These are further divided into 2 segments the – Real Cheap one which is from INR 200- 800.

First Copy Shoes VS Original
If you are buying First copy shoes then- The good quality first copy shoes range from 800 to 3000 (and it is very much bargainable )INR But I don’t recommend you to buy shoes above 1800 INR Because
Reason 1 – they are not original so investing above 2000 can be a bit risky.
Reason 2 – you can easily get an original at this price from factory outlet
Comfort level – Its is another factor by which one can identify the amount of comfort he is getting after wearing the Adidas product for long hours
So let’s see what are the things you have to keep in mind while purchasing a branded shoe.
1- Buy From Genuine Website
If possible always buy from a genuine website like for if you want to buy a Nike shoe then you should give a try to NIKE.COM For any other brand you can go with other official websites.
Nowadays Every big brand has their own online shopping portal. Just search it on the internet and buy the shoe you like.
2- Don’t get trapped by big discounts
If you don’t like the product on the official website or it is not available on the official company’s online shopping website. (As some big brand do not sell some products directly to customers, They use distributors and retailers for some products).
Then you can find any kind of shoes on big shopping websites like Amazon.In, Flipkart.com or from any other reputed websites.
But these websites are not the seller of the product which is shown on their portals but these websites work as a marketplace. Marketplace means they just provide their platforms to traders and traders sell their products amazon or Flipkart just get the commision from the sell.
So these sellers(traders) give you the discounts, not Amazon or Flipkart. These websites are very strict about their product quality chances are low that you will be get cheated if you buy from these sellers via Amazon but be aware when there is little chance of being cheated.
Don’t ever buy a Branded shoe which is given on high discounts like 70% OFF, 80% OFF Or Discounts up to 90% schemes. Chances are high of fake products in this kind of offers.
3- Ask for more pictures of the actual product in the actual condition
If you have finally selected your product and want to make a purchase of the same, then you should just check with the seller. Ask him for more images of the actual product and in actual condition.
Tell him/ her that you don’t want any photoshopped images or white background images just ask him/her to send the actual images of the products.
You can contact any seller through the website from which you are purchasing a shoe. All the big online shopping websites give the options to connect buyer and seller with each other for more product clarification.
4- Packaging, Manufacturing date And MRP Label
Don’t worry if you had already purchased the shoe and have been delivered to you. Just open your parcel of the shoe and check the packaging of the shoe. Your branded Nike shoe or puma shoe or any other brand shoe must be in original packaging.
Original means the original branded box of the shoe with MRP label on the box. Now if you have not received the shoe with original branded box. You can straight away return the shoe or can ask the seller for any kind of clarification of the same( You can contact the seller via shopping website).
And if you have received the product with branded packaging just look for the MRP label on the front side of the box. You will find details like product name, MRP of the product, size, manufacturing address and packers address. look for the packaging date or manufacturing date may at the bottom of the label.
Don’t keep a shoe if it has an older manufacturing date.
Now, look at the SKU column. SKU is the unique identification number given to each and every product by their manufacturers. SKU number on the box and on the tongue of the shoe must match. Must be the same.
Made in the company’s own plant, and it comes with warranty. You can register the product at the brand’s website to claim the warranty and you’ll be provided with a replacement if the product has any manufacturing defects.
Other than the above-stated parameters, all else is the same between the two. They boast of the same materials used, look exactly alike and you cannot tell the difference between them at a glance. First Copy Shoes VS Original
