THREE thousand counterfeit fashion shoes and boots seized from a Hong Kong shop and warehouse will shortly be on the feet of shell-shocked victims of the Yugoslavian civil war. The fake Dr Martens and AirWair, more commonly found on the feet of labourers and fashion-conscious nightclubbers, have been donated to the refugees by the manufacturers of the genuine products. They will be distributed by Oxfam next week to those caught up in the fighting in Bosnia. The shoes and boots were confiscated in raids in April after some were spotted on sale in a shop in North Point. The counterfeits were described as ''Dr Marties'' and ''Air Wair'' and at $100 a pair were a fraction of the cost of the genuine article. The boots were originally seen in November last year by the product's distributors, Style Dimension Company Ltd. Hong Kong lawyers Fairbairn, Tatley, Low and Kong were engaged to trace the fakes' source. In April they were granted a search and seize order by the Supreme Court against Sun Kwong Shoes Ltd at the Hi Tech Industrial Centre in Tsuen Wan. In June, brothers Yau Kin-chung and Yau Wing-king, directors of Sun Kwong Shoes, agreed to pay $650,000 in an out-of-court settlement to the footwear manufacturers, R. Griggs Group Ltd, which is based in the United Kingdom. They also agreed to a permanent injunction preventing them from any future dealings in counterfeit footwear. In July, the company which owned the shop seen selling the shoes, Tai But Tung Shoes Company Ltd, of Kings Road, North Point, agreed to pay $45,000 in damages and compensation. It is understood the shoes were made in China and shipped to Hong Kong for distribution. More than 50,000 genuine AirWair and Dr Martens are sold annually in Hong Kong at prices as high as $1,000 a pair. Stephen Griggs, managing director of R. Griggs Group Ltd, said: ''The counterfeits were on sale in retail outlets in Hong Kong and would undoubtedly be considered as genuine products by unsuspecting consumers. ''We are delighted with the outcome of this case and are pursuing a number of other cases in several countries. In every event we will seek the maximum penalties for the infringers and look to recover substantial damages and legal costs.''
