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. The official Louboutin Online shop is here http://us.christianlouboutin.com/ ANY OTHER website that has the name Louboutin in the web address sells FAKE CLs. ****** CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN AUTHENTICITY QUESTIONS GO HERE. **** FIRST, PLEASE DO A SEARCH BY SELLER NAME OR ITEM NUMBER TO SEE IF YOUR QUESTION HAS ALREADY BEEN ANSWERED. This is not a thread to ask general questions about CL, please refer to our main CL forum for information about sizing, seasons, etc. IF THE AUCTION/SHOES HAVE NOT YET BEEN AUTHENTICATED, POST HERE. This is a free service, so it is imperative that you help our authenticators by using the following format. PLEASE LEAVE A SPACE AFTER THE COLONS. PLEASE LIMIT YOUR REQUESTS TO THREE (3) PER POST. FOR AUCTION SITES: 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): Seller: Comments: 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 • BACK • FRONT • 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. SNEAKERS: For sneakers good quality close-ups of the following details are required: SIZE STAMP CL LOGO ON THE INSOLE “MADE IN“ STAMP ON THE OUTSOLE CL STAMP ON THE OUTSOLE 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 them. Should one of YOUR items be questioned in this thread, you are welcome to provide additional pictures or materials supporting its authenticity.
