Here lies another perfect example of why you definitely don’t want to try saving money by spending on fake or counterfeit boots. We receive questions and comments from folks who are considering buying pairs, wondering if they offer the same type of performance as the real version of the boots. At one point, we also ran a post on “Unique Looking Boots That You Don’t Want to Buy!” to try help explain why you shouldn’t go that route.
Well, Cleatstagram did the work for us on this one by creating a proper detailed video around the topic of fake boots, actually buying a pair of Fake Mercurial Superfly and testing them. Needless to say, his results were as expected and he proved that they were a complete dud. Even for their $29, these boots and anything else similar to them are absolutely to be avoided!
Our advice on this one is simple; stick to reputable mom+pop retail and online stores. If you buy online, make sure the website lists a legit address and working phone number. Also review return policies. And should you need some help figuring out if a pair of boots are legit or not, we are always here to offer advice and help you get the boots you expect!
