Wearing counterfeit accessories isn’t a faux pas, it’s a sin. What sends the fashion world into a tizzy isn’t as much a wrongly-paired outfit, as is a mistakenly purchased one. You’ll be surprised to know how alike a fake pair of footwear can look – we were!
Apparently, your trusted e-commerce website is taking your faith for a ride, with you in tow, wearing those new-looking but duplicate shoes. The market for ‘first copy’ goods, especially shoes, is flourishing across India. Over time, dealers in counterfeit shoes have expanded their operations from brick-and-mortar stores to the more easily accessible online world.
We’ve compiled a handy list of tell-tale signs to watch out for when getting yourself a Pierre Cardin. These are sure to blow your mind and knock your shoes, err, socks off!
The perfect Pierre Cardin shoe and shoe lining will always be made of 100% genuine leather that lets your feet breathe. Run your fingers over the body of the shoe and closely examine the surface. If it looks and feels uneven, good news, it’s real.
Genuine leather is essentially a natural material that feels pliable and supple to touch. Push it down with a finger to test – it will crease and wrinkle.
All that glitters is really not gold – so tread carefully. The original Pierre Cardin shoe that matches your sleek new tux so well comes neatly-stitched. Take a closer look at the shoe you’re holding – if the threads are untidy or fraying, drop it right there. Nobody deserves a duplicate Pierre Cardin!
Can we get a big ‘yay’ for the ultimate test of authenticity? Here’s what you need to remember the next time you step out to purchase, browse or even window-shop a Pierre Cardin – the shoe tag comes with a special QR Code.
Whip out your phone, scan the QR code, and the details of your dream Pierre Cardin will pop right up on your screen. If the QR Code isn’t printed on your shoe tag, you know it’s a fake! What’s more, if you register with us and make a purchase, you’re entitled to an additional 6-month warranty.
We know what you mean when you crave drop-dead amazing shoes, and we are licensed to kill (but not really). Always take note of the inside of a Pierre Cardin shoe. A genuine pair will have ‘Eltus Mode Pvt. Ltd.’ printed – comfortably in your line of sight under the tongue but well away from the gaze of onlookers.
Eltus Mode Pvt. Ltd. is the only Pierre Cardin shoe licensee across India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Sri Lanka. Beware the tricksters! Additionally, we’ve partnered with only the best names in the business – so don’t get scammed! Check out the list of registered dealers on our website & find a store closest to you.
You love your shoe collection. So do we. Pierre Cardin makes sure our shoes meet their rightful owner in ship-shape. If you pay attention, you’ll notice how a Pierre Cardin pair always comes wrapped in duly-labelled paper. This is then tucked away in a box with a barcode and manufacturing details that include a serial number and licensee address of ELTUS MODE PVT. LTD.
So, are you ready to step up to the counterfeit and into a genuine pair of Pierre Cardin?https://www.instagram.com/p/CCsWIE3Jkmx/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
