Leather On Shoes Question?
how can I determine the quality of product while shopping online? I am concerned since the e-shop could simple add any data to the advertisement or item description displayed on the websites. Is there a technique identifying the information besides using the description?

I would certainly hope, if any web-site selling shoes, is showing a pair and advertizing that they are leather, that they would be. Usually, the price will reflect them being of high quality over a like looking plastic?? It is always buyer beware, I for one, would never buy shoes without being able to try them on anyway, so for me, I never purchase shoes on line....Again, show size varies from brand to brand...

I have to agree with Donna.
Usually itīs the price, but my wife already made bad experiences with such online-shops.
She ordered one pair of leather boots and got fake-plastic shoes.
We wanted to send them back, but it didnīt work...
We gave up after 2 month.

I think it depends on the online-shop, if itīs a well known quality shop you can be sure that your shoes will be real leather (i hope).
But my wife doesnīt buy shoes online anymore. (good for me and my money)

I have some useful tips which will definitely help you. You can see the shoes of branded company. If they are branded then you will become sure about the quality of the product. The other thing is if the shoes are branded then they must have the symbol of the particular brand.

I agree with Donna, I would never buy shoes without trying them on.

I've bought a pair of shoes once online. It was a pair of Stacy Adams. The shoe has a leather upper as advertised. The sole was wood with white stitching as advertised and the size that I requested fit perfectly. I am very familiar with the Stacy Adams line of shoes and the only reason I ordered that one time is because the price was cheaper than where I usually buy them. Other than that I normally don't buy my shoes online.
