Frye Auth Check Please - Paige Loop Lug Boots

Hi everyone,
I bought these on eBay and I am sure they are fake (they aren't even real leather! ). I contacted the seller and they told me they are "100% authentic" and that they have the recepts to prove it . They also informed me that frye boots are not faked. Anyways, I contacted fry with the pics but I don't know if they will authenticate them for me so I thought I'd post here. I have like a zillion pics so I'm just going to post them as links. Hopefully this will help convince the seller.

The stupid thing was something felt wrong about them in the sellers pics. The soles were different than the pairs pictured on Zappos but they looked the same as the ones from Frye's paige The pictures were fairly dark so they looked ok to me other than that but I can't believe I didn't ask for better pictures before BINing them

Sorry, I just wanted to add. They do resemble the real thing, but I am pretty sure they aren't real leather. At the seams where you can flip back the leather, you can see white fabricy stuff underneath (shown in the pictures) rather than on real frye boots where you just see the suede side of the leather. They also have a strong vinyl smell and feel very plasticy too

I'm going to be taking them to my cobbler tomorrow to get a second opinion. I'll have to see what they think I guess.

Thanks Nola. When I opened the box they looked ok but as soon as I felt the leather I felt like there was something wrong. They don't feel anything like my other frye boots

I'm feeling a little frustrated because the seller keeps telling me that "frye boots aren't faked" and she told me she has a receipt from bloomingdales where they were purchased but she will not show it to me for "privacy" issues. I emailed Frye's customer service on Friday with the pictures so hopefully they'll be able to say one way or the other.

I noticed that Frye folks on Facebook seem to respond really fast (during the week) if there are any questions or issues. But hopefully someone will get back to you soon.

Seller could cover the "sensitive" info, make a copy of the receipt, and fax/mail it to you.... I've done that numerous times, but that's because I had nothing to hide.

I'm sorry I can't help, I'm not familiar with the style.

^Thanks I'll give that a try. Frye did send me back an automatic reply saying that they may need up to 3 business days to respond I know some companies don't like to do authentication for eBay purchases though. I looked on eBay and I found one pair that looks the same as mine and a few pairs that look more like what I would expect from frye.

I suggested to the seller they black out any sensitive information but they have been very illusive about the information. I am a little confused as to why they have a receipt from a pair of used shoes that were not from their personal collection. I think seller primarily sells used items so I was surprised when she said she had a receipt. I asked if they belonged to her but she didn't answer, and she won't tell me who originally purchased them . I mean, if she got them from a friend to sell or something like that, why wouldn't she just say so?

I can let you know if they do turn out to be fake. I don't think it would be fair to give out the sellers name until I'm sure just in case I'm being a horses ass

The cobbler I took them to said that they are leather but she thought that the shearling was fake. She thought the leather was probably treated with something which was causing the weird vinyl smell and plasticy feeling, and that fabric I was seeing was probably just a backing Who knows, maybe frye just sucks for shearling boots They sure don't look like any of my other fryes or feel like my UGGs though

I wouldn't worry too much though, I've purchased a few pairs on eBay with no problems. If they look ok then they probably are These just feel and look so different from my other Fryes which is why I'm thinking they are fake. Post pics for an auth check if you're worried though. I'm sure someone here can confirm for you
