Mario Prada, the creative brain behind the Prada brand name, began his business in 1913 steadily gaining popularity and becoming one of the most well known and sought after designer brands of modern times. The Prada collection includes apparel, shoes, wallets, belts and other accessories. Mario Prada wanted to design intricate shoes and sneakers that were not meant for sportswear. However, one should be very careful when planning to purchase a pair of Prada shoes because of the large number of companies (both online and offline) selling cheap fake versions of the original shoes.
MiuMiu is another relatively new brand name under the Pr. umbrella. It was started in 1992 by Miuccia Prada, granddaughter of Mario Prada and now has stores in almost all the fashionable cities of the world (including but not limited to Melbourne, Hawai, Taipei, Boston, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, London, and New York etc.
Some Telltale Signs that You are Not Getting Original Prada Shoes
Following are some of the telltale signs that you are not getting original Prada shoes;
• Shoe Box - A regular shoes customer will be able to spot a fake pair of shoes simple by looking at the shoe box since the Prada shoes’ shoe box is made or plastic rather than card board. Moreover, the Prada shoe box does not have the brand name on the top; instead the Prada logo, model number and details and price are printed on one side of shoe box. If the Prada shoes come in a shoe box that differs even slightly from the above mentioned description, you need to raise a red flag and demand value for your money.
• Insole - You always need to remember that the insole of Prada sneakers is removable. Thus, if the insole of the so-called Prada sneakers you have purchased or are planning to purchase is attached to the shoe, it is most definitely not the pair of shoes you have been saving up for.
• Designs – Although not the best indicator, the Pr. shoes has signature designs that can be spotted on the website. It should also be born in mind that Prada is one of the most popular and high quality brand of luxury shoes. Thus, if you have the slightest of suspicion about the quality or the designs appear different from their collection on the website, refrain from purchasing it. And buy it either from the online store or the nearest Prada outlet.
• Intuition – Follow your gut feeling since a relatively unknown seller offering Prada shoes at a fraction of the original price is most likely a fraudulent business that will end up selling you a pair of fake Prada shoes that will be spotted from a mile away.
