After work I usually drop-by at the nearest mall to check new stuffs. I decided to visit Landmark Makati - like SM Malls they sells nice items in a very affordable prices. While searching for my new boots, my eyes are caught by the latest Crocs designs - they are so amazingly pretty! But I got more curious about the other "CROCS" just 5 meters away from the Crocs stand. These "CROCS" are FAKE - yes, also available in Landmark.
Using my iPhone, I've captured these pictures and I want to share to you the differences of FAKE Beach Line Boat Crocs versus AUTHENTIC Beach Line Boat Crocs. With the help of Crocs Philippines, here's some of the tips How to Spot the FAKE Crocs.
Every Crocs shoe model has its own barcode. If the barcode of the Crocs shoes is similar to any other Crocs shoe model its definitely a knock off
There are only selected colors available for every Crocs shoe model, if the color of the Crocs shoes is not listed in www.crocs.com.ph its fake.

Fake Crocs usually come in smaller sizes compared to what's printed on the sole.
4. Circulation nubs:
Each Crocs shoe prides on its circulation nubs that makes it ergonomic and comfortable. Fake Crocs have "circulation nubs" but it doesn't have the ergonomic feel to it. Authentic Crocs shoes should have distinct circulation nubs that you must feel under your foot sole.
Is this FAKE or AUTHENTIC? Yeah, this is the FAKE CROCS - refer to Tip #2.
Each Crocs shoe has an embossed Duke logo on the footbed. Authentic Crocs shoes must have the two eyes of the Duke showing and six even bumps on the back. The fourth bump from the top is a little bigger than the rest. The Duke should also have two hands showing, both with three fingers each like its holding the edge of the box.
Authentic Crocs shoes are made of Croslite(tm) that makes all Crocs shoes lightweight, durable, and slip-resistant. Fake Crocs are usually made with rubber that are heavy and can be slippery when stepped on wet surface. You can also tell through the quality and finish of the shoe.
