Authenticate Those Shoes! *Read 1st Page BEFORE posting*
Post any questions regarding authenticity of shoes, boots, etc. . . or Sellers here.

Item: xxxx
Listing number: xxxx
Seller: xxxx
Link: xxxx
Comments: xxxx

If the shoes in question are NOT ON AN AUCTION SITE, please use the following:
Item Name (if you know it):

Link (if available):
Please give us as much information as you can and then attach any photos (all authentication must include photos).

This format to prevent duplication requests and to make it simpler for people to 'search' for items which may have been posted previously. If you feel that your post has been skipped, you may repost but please copy and paste the ORIGINAL LINK, do not just copy and paste the link from your post.

Please post ALL of the following photos to insure ACCURATE authentication:

ON A HARD SURFACE, NOT A BED OR CARPETING –*We need to see the ENTIRE shoe, not a cropped portion.

• PROFILE: this is a shot of the entire side of the shoe, and should be taken straight on, NOT from above or below
• LABEL/LOGO inside the shoe
• SOLE 1: a clear close-up shot of the logo/size stamp, preferably no flash
(a macro lens is best for this shot – it's the flower icon on your camera)
• SOLE 2: a shot of the entire sole

BOOTS: Please do your best to get a clear shot of the label inside the boot. This can be tricky, but it can be done.

AUTHENTICATORS: Please utilize the "QUOTE" feature when responding directly to another post. Please do not publicly post details about why you think an item is or is not authentic, sellers of fakes have been known to lurk here and we would not want to help the

Note: The PurseForum requests that only members with an extensive knowledge of the brand and authenticating who have over 500 posts participate as authenticators in this AT thread. The moderators reserve the right to remove authentications that do not meet these requirements.

There are a whole bunch of balenciaga shoes posted for sale on Bluefly. Given the recent bag fiasco, does anyone know if the shoes are real or part of the "new and improved" Bluefly?

Hi Wildbizatch, yep, they are not the sort of shoe that is going to be copied :)
All signs are good, the label looks 100% correct

You got a good shoe at a good price.
Oh and welcome to the forums

they look real to me uhkiwi, but I am not really feeling them, they have far too much going on, from the perspex front to the funny straps, which would I assume go all the way up the leg (I do not think they would be flattering on).

They are absolutely authentic Frye boots. I bought them. Thanks for the link! Look at how much Zappos is selling them for:

Frye Bruce - Free Shipping & Return Shipping

These were a steal!!!

Thanks, uhkiwi! I have to admit that I did feel the tiniest bit guilty bidding on them because you were interested, so I only placed the opening bid amount.

I thought for SURE I'd get outbid (if not by you, by someone) because as that Zappos link shows, Frye boots are freaking EXPENSIVE. Great boots, but expensive! Yesterday I took them outside with a can of waterproofing spray and sprayed the devil out of them. I really don't care for suede b/c it gets dirty so easily, but the waterproof spray usually help.

By the way, I noticed the seller had this same boot in other sizes. Why don't you send them a message and see if they have any other Frye boots in 7.5. I can assure you they are the real deal, especially now that I've got them.

Is it authentic?

I love these boots
Rene Caovilla is my favorite! I wish they had them in a darker color.
