    Are these website fake?

    Hey, im trying to order some football boots im a bit concerned about some of the websites i have found. Im spending a lot of money so i dont want to end up with fake boots! I have done some googleing, some people say they are fake others not.

    Are these reputable?

    Yes they are both reputable

    I think they look okay and the products shouldn't be fake but I'm no sportswear buyer.

    I'm less keen on the second one. Couldn't find their trading address on the website, only the registered office address in the T&C which is likely to be a solicitor or similar. The domain registration has an address which might or might not be the trading address. I didn't spend a lot of time looking so it might be hidden there somewhere but I prefer buying from places that are upfront about their address.

    have used Lovell Soccer in the past, never heard of the other one. No idea if this is any help!

    They are both very reliable

    The person who posted in one of the Prodirect threads here who never got their order or any communication from the company would probably disagree with you.

    Pro-Direct Soccer have always been exceptional - used to buy loads of football gear from them when I used to play for my college

    Used both and both reputable genuine sellers.. no concerns. I agree prodirect are very cheap, due to turnover and bulk buying powers, they also have pro direct running and rugby. A massive company.

    Both quality companies. Highly recommended

    Company Searches Made Simple is the best merchant company to provide best services...

    If you google pro-direct.com reviews you can read all about issues coming from that
    company.
    I wish I had done that before buying something from them. They just took my money and never even bothered to email a receipt to me.
    No address for the company on the website.
    No phone number for the company on the website.
    Paypal has their customer service phone number (because it is required) but calls to the customer service number are BILLED TO YOU at 10 cents a minute....so they make money off your problems. Promises for a callback go unanswered.
    Buyer beware.

    Order placed and paid on 24th Nov 2014. Never received and no answer to emails sent.

    I checked with Nike.com and they are registered supplier of Nike, so at least not fake, maybe just poor customer service? I've not yet ordered as they didn't have my size, but I did speak to an adviser who was very nice, and helpful.

    I realise that I am posting on an old thread but have recent experience of this company.
    Do not trust them. I ordered boots for £72.99. They arrived from China, avoiding import duty by false declaration of value of item. They were sub standard ( if not fake ) and had extra glue and glue smears in several places. I returned at my cost. THEN I got a bank statement to show they had taken 101USD from my account totalling over £83, and then my bank had charged me for a non sterling transaction. The transaction had taken place in China, and the name on my bank statement was DISCOUNTCLUB 0001. My bank has refunded me. There is nothing on the website to indicate payment in anything other than £.
