www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lelli-Kelly-2011-Cherry-Pink-Velcro-Shoes-NIB-EU-25-33-/280684570939?pt=UK_Clothing_GirlsShoes_GirlsShoes_GL&var=&hash=item870ca5257a#ht_4535wt_1138 seem v cheap compared to other similar listings, and there is some negative feedback about fake products from this seller...

DD1 has been on at me for some of these since she grew out of the ones her grandma bought her for Christmas....

It's difficult to tell from the listing. The photo might be of original LK shoes but you might get a fake pair.

That's what I am worried about, they look real in the photo but at that price I am not convinced when other sellers are selling the same thing for pretty much full original price

Does it really matter at the end of the day if they are fake, they look real enough and they are cheaper. Will your dd care if they are fake, but look real?

Cookie
You are assuming that the pair she gets will look like the photo. With fakes the item that arrives is often shit

I'm more hmm and if it looks too good to be true, then it usually is.

There is so much beading on these shoes, and if it turns out to be fakes is likely to be poor quality and could present a choking hazard. I just wouldn't take the risk.

cookielove Sun 11-Sep-11 17:33:04

Well yes i am assuming that, but they do have alot of good feed back, well the first 4 pages looked alright, only one negative.

But hey if your willing to pay the normal price your better getting it from the shop, at least she and you can try before your buy, or go to a clarks outlet.

Pagwatch Sun 11-Sep-11 17:44:37

That's true - the feedback is ok. I would just be concerned that theyvwill be plastic when the real ones are actually really well made, leather and last ages.

I would pay £35 for something that lasts years but I wouldn't pay £24 for plastic.
Depends if you can afford to risk it I suppose. But if you can afford to risk it why not just get the real thing

here at john lewis reduced

or trainers they are strawberries not cherries but very similar

both £30

thanks Cookielove they don't have them in her size... sad

I am not going to risk it....I agree with you Kirst about things seeming to good to be true...

There are some genuine sellers of these ones I think but they are pretty much the full price, but she has had several pairs of these before that MIL has bought her in the past and they do fit her well and have lasted well.

Given MIL bought her school shoes I may push the boat out for her....

I always assume listings from hong kong to be fakes. I know not everything would be but always err on side of caution on location of item.

if you read their neg feedback, someone has commented saying the lelli kelly's are factory seconds.

JohnniesBitch Sun 11-Sep-11 20:48:47

I was going to say that design is reduced everywhere. I brought them for dd from John Lewis for £25 so they could be real and if you pay by paypal you are covered anyway

Missed that Daenerys thanks. Think will try elsewhere.
