Checking if you have real vs fake Off-White Jordan 2s is very easy.

Legit check any Off-White Jordan 2 Low colorway with this guide.

Let’s take you through the 5 ways to legit check your Jordan 2.

How to tell if Jordan 2 x Off-White are fake

To tell if your Jordan 2 x Off-White are fake, start by examining the medial text and the size tag.

Counterfeit pairs consistently display incorrect text thickness.

1. Medial text

To keep this tidy:

  • Let’s start with the left shoe.
  • Then we’ll proceed to look at the other shoe as well.

1.1. Left

  • Authentic:
    1. “TM” text is thicker and wider.
    2. Quotation marks are not perfectly shaped, appearing thicker.
    3. “USA” text is thicker with less space between the letters.
  • Fake:
    1. “TM” text appears too thin.
    2. Quotation marks are too straight and defined, forming a perfect symbol.
    3. “USA” print is too thin, with more distance between each letter.

1.2. Right

  • Authentic:
    1. “Off-White” text is thinner.
    2. “TM” text has a thinner appearance.
    3. “Beaverton” print is thinner with more space between each character.
  • Fake:
    1. “Off-White” text appears too thick.
    2. “TM” text is also too thick.
    3. “Beaverton” word is too thick with letters closely placed.

2. Size tag

  • Authentic:
    1. The factory’s print (e.g. “VW1”) is bulky but not excessively so.
    2. The style-code (e.g. “DJ4375-106”) is thick and bold.
    3. The UPC code text and numbers are thicker.
    4. The “MADE IN VIETNAM” text, in all languages, is bold.
  • Fake:
    1. Factory’s print (e.g. “VW1”) is too thin.
    2. Style-code text (e.g. “DJ4375-106”) is thin due to a different font.
    3. UPC code text and numbers appear too thin.
    4. “MADE IN VIETNAM” text in all languages is too thin.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

3. Tongue

  • Authentic:
    • Stitches around the Air Jordan logo are thinner and longer, giving an “airy” appearance.
    • No threads are hanging out of the stitching line.
  • Fake:
    • Stitches are too thick, short, and boxy.
    • There might be threads hanging out of the stitching line, which is not a feature of authentic pairs.

4. Toe box

  • Authentic: Toe box is thinner with flatter leather, sitting lower.
  • Fake: Toe box is thicker and appears inflated.

5. Back

  • Authentic: Stitching is thinner and narrower.
  • Fake: Stitching appears too thick.

Summary: Legit check your Off-White Jordan 2

Come back to this list whenever you have to authenticate on the go:

  1. Inspect Medial Text:
    • Check the medial text on both left and right shoes; replicas often display text with incorrect thickness.
  2. Examine Size Tag:
    • Look at the size tag inside the shoes. The text on most counterfeit Off-White 2s appears too thin.
  3. Review Tongue’s Badge Stitching:
    • Inspect the stitching around the tongue’s badge. Counterfeit Off-White Air Jordan 2 Lows frequently have poorly detailed stitching with hanging threads where they should be neatly integrated into the shoes.
  4. Analyze Toe Box Shape:
    • Observe the shape of the toe box. Fake pairs typically have a toe box that is too high.
  5. Inspect Back Stitching:
    • Look at the stitching on the back of the shoes. Fake Off-White 2s usually feature excessively thick stitching.
