Saved me $600

My shoes turned out to be fake after I bought a pair of Yellow Grateful Dead Dunks on eBay; however, it saved me $600 so I'm beyond appreciative! The live chat platform is also very helpful as well. I will for sure be submitting pictures for future purchases! Thanks again!

Great service and excellent communication!

Nikita was a pleasure to work with. I initially connected by chat and he gave me a lot of information before even formally assessing my Gucci shoes. I am glad that I asked him to authenticate the shoes. I wasn’t sure they were authentic because I bought them on a reselling site. It turns out that they were an older model and that’s why they didn’t have a serial number. Anyway, it was great to work with this company. Thanks!

Very detailed explanations

I had a great experience with Hype Team. The reason I used LegitGrails was to authenticate AJ Diors that I bought off eBay for a very expensive price. They couldn’t authenticate right away with 6 photos uploaded, however I sent additional photos when the pair arrived. They responded in 20 minutes and OMG thanks god they’re authentic. Will use again!!

Great and fast service

I used this service to authenticate a pair of Nike Dunk High GS 316604-172. I received an E-Mail withing 9 hours that more photos of the inner stitching and sole are needed and after I sent them, I got a reply within a few minutes that the shoes are legit. The certificate will help me with the sale and I can be sure every detail is checked by experts. I also used the chat to ask a question and got an instant reply and great customer service. I can fully recommend this team.

Made my week!

These guys are great! In every way, the expertise blows me away. I reached back out to them several weeks later just to ask about another shoe. One question and the answered immediately at 6am EST with my answer and didn't even ask why I didn't purchase. They are professionals for sure!!

Surprised by the speed and accurateness of the LegitGrails Team LC

In less that 24 hours, the LegitGrails team provided me with an excellent analysis of the Dior garment in question. Aside from the issues I initially saw with the price tags, I was impressed that they had expert knowledge about the expected stitching, neck labels, and washing labels, and fonts. Unfortunately this garment turned out to be a replica / fake, but at least I now have expert evidence that can be leveraged in the dispute of my case with the seller. I 100% recommend LegitGrails, and have already sent them another request today. Great work!

Eased my Concerns

My experience was great. I secured some LA-CHI 1s in a trade. Upon receipt of the shoes, I noticed some differences between the left and right shoe. Opinions among friends varied from “Don’t worry, they’re legit” to “send them back.” My initial opinion was definitely concerned about legitimacy. All of the issues looked like QC but I couldn’t verify. The legit grails team kept me informed throughout the process, asking questions to ensure they did a thorough review before giving their conclusion. 100% will use again.

Great fast authentication

They were really fast and very thorough. Unfortunately my shoes were fake but because they were able to let me know so fast I was able to return them for a full refund and use they certificate showing they were not authentic as proof. Very great service l, I will definitely be using again for shoes I purchase in the future. A+

Best Authentication Service

I have used LegitGrails 3x now and they have always been responsive and honest when authenticating my items - they have never let me down! They're able to provide an outcome within the time frames given and carefully explain the reasons for that decision on whether the item is fake or authentic - I couldn’t be happier! I will 100000% continue using them in the future!

Great Service

Fast response and good customer service. Would not have known if the pair I was about to buy were not authentic. Thanks.

I bought a couple of pairs of Jordans on ebay which seemed pretty legit but I wanted to double check. For the sake of £7 I knew it was worth it. Just had to send a few extra photos of specific areas on the shoes but this didn't put me off I can tell these guys are professionals �

Great Communication and Service

I’m so glad I chose LegitGrails. I wouldn’t have known my item was non-authentic without them.
