Kids’ Sneakers Are Now Covered Under eBay Australia’s Authenticity Guarantee
The prevalence of fake sneakers has sadly reached kids’ footwear, which tends to be more common among hyped styles. This can be prevented by purchasing shoes through eBay, whose Australian arm has extended the Authenticity Guarantee to cover sneakers in kids’ sizes from popular sports and designer brands.
The eBay Australia Authenticity Guarantee is applied to sneakers sold for over $150 from dozens of brands including Nike, Jordan Brand, Yeezy, Balenciaga, and more. There is a stringent inspection process developed by Sneaker Con (who eBay acquired last year) that ensures the products are legit before the customer receives them. For kids’ shoes, the same strict protocols are carried out – the kicks are just smaller!
Alaister Low, eBay Australia’s senior manager, Authentication and Collectibles, says, ‘We’ve seen over 1.5-million pairs of sneakers authenticated globally since our launch last year and we’re really excited to roll out Authenticity Guarantee to youth sizes so sneakerheads big and small can get in on the action.’
‘Youth sizes or Grade School models aren’t just for kids. Adults who wear a US women's size 8.5 or smaller may be surprised to know they can cop their favourite styles… for less with youth sizes often cheaper than their adult counterparts. [Y]outh sizes are also usually more readily available for people that want the latest styles but miss out on popular adult sizes.’
