i feel i must let people know about the situation of fake lacoste trainers as some people seem to have a few detail wrong some people have said that: - The majority of fake Lacoste's have the crocodile stitched the wrong way round (tail first)! Seems obvious, but in the pictures it's hard to notice unless it's pointed out. Also, the crocodile is a slightly different colour. this is true people have also said that: - The fake ones usually have a white sole with a blue 'Lacoste' logo on the bottom, the real ones have a red one. Real ones can also have a blue sole or grey sole. this is not completley true as depending on the style and colour of trainer the 'lacoste' logo on the bottom of the sole can be turqoise, pink, or red also it has been claimed that: - The 'Lacoste' logo on the front velcro tab is blue and poorly stitched on the fakes. On the originals, it usually doesn't have 'Lacoste' stitched on the tabs, it is on a rubber type thing on the end of the tabs, and it says 'Lacoste' on there. Real Lacostes may have 'Lacoste' stitched in white across the tabs though, as I have seen some pretty real looking ones with that on. this is not true as depending on the style and colour of the trainer like if it was a 3 strap fastening it can have 'lacoste' stitched across the very top strap in colour or white depending on the colour but they can also have the rubber tabs on the end of the straps with 'lacoste' written on the rest of the information below is true - You won't be able to tell this really until you buy them, but the stitching is very poor. Inside the shoe (the part you stand on), the fake ones have a dodgy white tag saying LACOSTE CHAUSSURES' and a tatty tag under the tongue saying 'made in Vietnam' or something similar. The real ones say 'Lacoste Sport' and you will be able to tell the difference immediately. - Lastly, the originals are made from a very soft, flexible leather. The fakes are made from hard PVC/plastic stuff. please take note of this as it can help you allot in finding the things you want, making and selling fake produce is against the law, don't be fooled and report fraudulent sellers to ebay.
