Aargh! Are these 'replicas' or are they the real deal?

I have seen and like the look of these:

but if you google the name of the shoe, it comes up with exactly the same pictures on sites like this:

and this:

which states that they are 'replicas'.

And if you go to what I think is the official jimmy chop website
it only shows the shoes in gold and silver, not bronze.

I am happy to pay £100 for a pair of the genuine things, but not for a pair of rip-offs. Am I right that all the ones that come up when you search are fakes?

How do you ensure that you are buying a genuine article when you shop on line?

Contact the official website and ask them which are genuine. They might be happy to tell you.

Those are fakes.
The real deal will never come down to £100 even during sale.

The name of the website is the real giveaway....easy to spot if it the original website or not.

the first link: onlines???
2nd link: lauboutin as opposed to louboutin
3rd link: official website seldom put the word online...or shop...or sale in their url.

I have to say that I am amazed that there are so many sites openly selling fakes. Why do the big brands permit it? Is it because they want more people in their labels and talking about buying their brand even though they are not buying the real thing?

This is the first time I have tried to buy shoes on line, and it has completely put me off.

I want to buy a pair of bronze-coloured strappy sandals, and thought it would be easier to find on-line than walking down the high street. I can see I am not going to enjoy this sad.

Fuckers angry! I would probably buy them anyway if they were half the price and not pretending to be something they are not.

Whilst we are here, does anyone care to give me their opinion on these or these or to make any other suggestions?

The info is there when you look, I admit, but I followed a link directly to the product from a site like pintrest (I can't remember if it was that one specifically) after doing a search for 'bronze strappy heels', so if I had not done a google search on the name of the shoe, I could easily have bought them without seeing anything to say that they are fakes. A bit naive, I know, but I think that the first site on which I saw the shoes had ones in other colours at the 'full' price, so it seemed feasible that these were just end of line discounts.
