Chinese sneaker brands: copies of the Authentic, Old Skool…
Now that replicas are disappearing from AliExpress, we are keeping a close eye on Chinese brands: they are what we usually call “white label brands”, as they have no intention of making themselves known as a brand, but are very similar to Vans and have an excellent price-quality ratio. Take a look:
The problem with not being a well known brand is that they are hard to find, so you have to use expressions like “Canvas Sneakers”, “Vanly Shoes” or Zosdon, one of the brands you can see featured above in the pictures which has lots of sneakers, some of them inspired by Vans. Fair warning, even with these keywords, they can be hard to find.
Who are the best sellers – are they trustworthy?
To find a seller with a good reputation all you have to do is this: after going to this search, sort them by Sales. This is may not be an infallible method since nowadays there are many sellers closing their store and opening new ones, but the products with more ratings are usually much more reliable, in addition, we can see the ratings of other buyers regarding the product.
The second step is to check the ratings of the seller. As you know, the more positive sales you have, the higher your score as a seller, so if we buy from sellers with a high score, we'll buy with a lot more confidence. To see the seller's rating just look at the icons next to the store name. In this case, the seller has 3 diamonds, so the store is trustworthy.
Check the shipping time
Once you find a seller with good reputation selling the Vans we want, check the shipping time. The first thing to check is how long does the product take to ship, depending on when you want to get them, you might want to give it more importance or less.
As you can see in the red frame, this seller offers them in 7 working days.
Most of the sellers say that shipping time is in between 10 and 60 days, but you will usually get it in 15 days.
Sizes in AliExpress – How to find my shoe size
Because they are original Vans sneakers you won't have any problem determining your size. If you usually use Vans just look at the shoe tab for the number you are wearing in the USA. This is the size you will need to order from AliExpress.
If you don't know your size we advise you to use the conversion chart that sellers have on the product page. You may also want to check reviews of consumers because if there is a problem with the sizes they will put it in the comments and advise you to choose a size more or less.
