I am on mrwholesales.com and it looks like they sell John Lobb, Edward Green, Tod's, and Church's shoes (among others) at a very steep discount. So steep that I don't think it's real. Can anyone confirm this? Are the products fake, is the website fake, or what?

Yes, I would not recommend buying Edward Green shoes off Mr. Wholesales dot com.

I agree, though it is worth looking into the legitimacy of it. The https is not secure or verified, but there isn't any other info I could find.

There are a ton of fake sites like this, especially for high-end clothing. It's all just a way for them to get your credit card info.

The giveaways are

1) ridiculously low prices
2) product images taken from somewhere else
3) inventory being crazy high (2,781 pairs of Guidi boots available, even though they probably don't even make that many in a year)
4) no real contact info (when you click on their contact page, there's no number you can call or address you can refer to)


Also, website names like Mr. Wholesale dot com.
