Genuine Snake Skin Shoes

Here are 4 ways to check whether the shoes that you are buying are really genuine snake skin shoes, not faux.

1.       Patchwork

The richness and exquisite grain pattern and he intricate details of real snakeskin makes genuine snake skin shoes look like works of art. However, snakeskin is delicate and very narrow in size. The dimensions of a piece of genuine snakeskin hide usually range from 40 to 50 inches long, but only 4 to 5½ inches wide. So if the shoes you are considering do not have connection seams on the uppers, chances are it is faux snakeskin. Genuine snakeskin simply cannot cover such a large area without patch work.

2.       Pattern and Shade

Every snakeskin hide has a similar pattern and shade, but never exactly the same. If the snakeskin shoes have patch work, but each patch carries the same shade and pattern, chances are they are fake.

3.       Price

Genuine snakeskin is expensive. The more that is used on the shoes, the higher the price. It can cost 3 to 5 times more than cow hide of the same size. If the shoes you are buying are at a “bargain” price, they are likely to be made from embossed cowhide. Worse still, a pair of fake snakeskin shoes can even be tagged with a similar price. So you need to try to evaluate how genuine the shoes are by checking patchwork, pattern and shade.

 

4.       Buy From A Reputable Supplier

You can see from the above that you can check whether the shoes that you are buying are real or fake, but only on close inspection, not at first sight. The safest way to ensure that your python shoes are not fake is to buy from a reputable supplier such as from one of our Bangkok Bootery stores. Even if you make your purchase online from the Bangkok Bootery website, you can be assured that, for over 80 years, we have sourced only genuine snake skins.
