How to spot fake Common Projects

3 quickest ways to spot fake Common Projects

1. Midsole


  • Every stitch is in its place and securely embedded deep into the fabric.


  • Threads are coming out of the midsole, indicating poor stitching and construction quality.

2. Insole


  • All letters have the same font-weight.


  • “MADE IN ITALY” is too thin, but the “M” is so thick that it’s illegible, resulting in an uneven font-weight.


  • Subtle, less visible stitching in the middle.


  • More pronounced stitching in the middle, making it more visible.
