This Italian brand was opened in 1921 by Guccio Gucci. It was reinvented by Tom Ford in 1990s and popularity of it increased immensely. Gucci shoes and handbags are in great demand these days. Because of the popularity of this brand, many sellers have started selling replica in the name of original brand. They look very similar to Gucci original shoes and sometimes become difficult to spot the fake.
But here are some tips that can help you out in that:
Get some familiarity with Gucci designs and styles. Magazines that showcase Gucci’s collection can be used to spot the fake.
All Gucci products contain serial number. Fake shoes usually don’t contain 8 digit serial number. In original shoes, this number can be found hidden inside the lining and this proves a very good mark to differentiate fake from original. Original shoes contain leather lining with words “Gucci Made in Italy” written on them.
Keenly observe the sole. In fake shoes, soles are made from synthetic material. In original shoes, it is made from leather. Men’s shoe contain silver plate on which “Gucci” is written.
Gucci shoe bags are of brown color containing double G or Double C logos. Fake shoes come with tanned, black and white bags without these logos. An authentic box contains words “Gucci” engrossed over the silver lining.
So, these were some steps which can help you out. Differentiation is must as if happen to get the fake one, you will end up in a huge loss.
