    I am thinking about buying a pair of Sperry Topsiders Angelfish Linen/Oat Boat Shoes off of ebay. The problem is they are only $30, is there anyway I can be sure they are authentic from the pictures? Everything looks legit, but I'm worried... If anyone could help I would really really appreciate it, thanks!

    I bought a couple of pairs locally for around that price last year. Not sure if they actually are fake, or they just came from the same Chinese sweat-shop as all the rest of them, rejects or seconds possibly. They seem OK, comfortable and haven't fallen apart yet. :)

    If you have any doubts send the vendor a message enquiring where they get them, especially for NWT. And if their English is poor, that's usually a clue. Anyway Topsiders are only something like $60 from Sperry, aren't they?
