3 quickest ways to spot fake Converse Chuck Taylor

1. Heel Logo


  • The “Chuck” text is bold, wider, and has well-defined letters.
  • The word “CONVERSE” is thick and prominently displayed, making it clearly legible.


  • The “Chuck” inscription on the fake pair appears too thin, and the letters seem narrower, giving it a boxy appearance.
  • Similarly, the “CONVERSE” text is also too thin and narrow when compared to the authentic label, resulting in a less legible appearance.

2. Size Tag


  • The “MADE IN VIETNAM” and “FABRIQUE AU VIETNAM” inscriptions are neatly printed with a thinner appearance.
  • The details provided at the bottom, such as “GENDER,” “UPPER,” “LINING,” and “OUTSOLE,” are more pronounced, bolder, and thicker.


  • The “MADE IN VIETNAM” and “FABRIQUE AU VIETNAM” texts are overly bold.
  • Contrarily, the details at the bottom of the tag, like “GENDER,” “UPPER,” “LINING,” and “OUTSOLE,” are fainter and appear too thin.

3. Toe Box


  • The toe box has a distinctive and pronounced arch, characteristic of the Converse Chuck Taylor design.


  • The curvature of the toe box is present but not as pronounced in the fake pair.
