At the same time, they often try to pass leather shoes out of leather substitute shoes, and the customs are trying to fight this. For leather shoes you have to pay a higher fee than for shoes made of leatherette.

“A high-quality examination of shoes is carried out by a branch of the expert forensic service, this allows us to quickly identify fakes and contraband,” said Sergei Pashko.

According to the Far Eastern Customs Administration, among the identified counterfeit goods, a large share is occupied by UGG and ECCO brands. Their fakes are imported most often. The total amount of detected counterfeit has grown significantly: if in 2009 324 thousand units of goods were recognized as counterfeit, then in 2010 - already 1,89 million units.
