How to spot fake oakleys
Oakley is an American sports brand that produces all kinds of functional glasses. Oakley is so famous in the United States that one out of every twenty people on the street wears Oakley glasses. But just like other brands, Oakley can’t escape the fate of being copied. Today’s Chinese market is flooded with a lot of Oakley fakes. Therefore, this article will teach you how to distinguish between true and fake Oakley.
Generally , fake Oakley will be much cheaper than real Oakley. The retail price of Oakley currently on the market is usually $100 to $500, so if you buy Oakley that is significantly lower than this price, it is likely to be a counterfeit.
This is easy to see. The real Oakley can’t make such a low-level mistake. Whether it is “Oakley”, “Okely”, “Okely”, “Foakley”, etc., fake Oakley usually spells errors.
Most Oakley glasses frames are made of pre-dyed plastic. Therefore, the color of the entire plastic frame is the same. If you find that the color of the frame is different, or the coating is peeling off, it can basically be determined to be a fake. In addition, there are some Oakley glasses with special design patterns or directly made of metal. The surface coating of the frame of these Oakley glasses uses high-quality lacquer, which is not easy to wear. In addition, counterfeit Oakleys often have imperfect finishing, if you run your finger along it, you could feel it.
Some counterfeit manufacturers will fabricate models of Oakley glasses that do not exist at all. This is something we need to pay attention to. The most direct solution is to go to Oakley’s official website to find and compare.
The SKU is an identification that is often alphanumeric. In older Oakleys, the SKU typically is a sequence of 2 numbers, a dash, and then 3 numbers. An example of a SKU for a pair of Half Jackets is 03-609.If you see a SKU with random letters, or a longer string of numbers than what’s been identified above, they may be counterfeits. It’s a good idea to plug your SKU into a search engine and see what pops up.
Some Oakley glasses have logos and some do not. If the ones on Oakley’s site don’t have “Oakley” over the nose bridge, and yours do, then what you’ve got is fake .
The fake Oakley is usually smaller than the real Oakley because the merchant wants to save manufacturing costs.
