Footwear

According to the National Chamber Foundation, the estimated annual industry loss due to footwear counterfeiting in the U.S. is $12 billion. (Source) To combat counterfeit shoes, AlpVision offers the footwear industry a breakthrough covert anti-counterfeit solution that tracks and authenticates mass produced objects manufactured by molding. The solution applies to a wide variety of footwear items, including shoes, boots and sandals that have a rubber or plastic sole.

   

AlpVision Fingerprint™

 

With no changes to the manufacturing process, AlpVision’s Fingerprint technology leverages the intrinsic microscopic surface irregularities found in a shoe sole mould and uses these unique characteristics as the means of authentication (as opposed to adding safety features).

The process requires capturing a digital image of the matte-finished surface of a shoe mould and storing it in a database. The image is then used as a reference to perform product authentication. It follows that only one image per shoe mould cavity is sufficient to authenticate an entire shoe line produced by the same mold cavity.
