China bans ‘fake’ Chinese footwear
Chinese authorities have banned online retailer fubuyen shoes, which sold counterfeit goods including fubui shoes, and banned the use of the term “fake” on its website.
Fubuyens shoes, like its popular fubus shoes, are often marketed as women’s footwear, with their faux leather uppers and toe caps.
But the brand has been criticised for using misleading and misleading advertisements.
Fujian police in September 2016 said that it had issued an official warning to the company over a series of false advertisements.
It cited the shoes’ alleged misleading claims, as well as other products with misleading advertising.
In a statement, the company said it had removed “false and misleading” and “untruthful” advertisements, as part of its commitment to the “goods safety, quality and sustainability”.
It added that it will investigate all advertisements related to fubuzhou shoes, a traditional style of women’s Chinese footwear.
Funko, the Japanese toy company, said it is “looking into the matter”.
It said that if any issues arise, the issue will be addressed as soon as possible.
