There are a lot of replica pairs made for this specific pair, but there is no such pair as the authentic Off-White Jordan 5, and we are here today, teaching you how to differentiate the real vs fake Off-White Jordan 5

In this Ultimate Fake Vs Real Guide Off-White Jordan 5 with images, we will detail what you need to follow to ensure you are buying real, genuine Jordan 5.

Now that you know what we are talking about, let’s get you to know how to check the fake vs real Off-White Jordan 5 Black pairs.

How to spot fake Off-White Jordan 5

As you have seen in the table of contents above, there are a lot of ways that we’ve pointed out in this guide on how to spot the fake vs real Jordan 5 Retro Black Off-White, but before saying all of them.

We would like to mention the fact that the #1 thing you should look at when legit checking the OW Jordan 5 Retro Black is the medial text on both the left and the right shoes.

Step 1: Verify the medial text on your OW Jordan 5 Retro Black

As we have mentioned above, the go-to thing when you are legit checking the Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers is to look out for the medial text on these sneakers.

The left shoe’s medial text

Let’s have a look at the left shoe’s medial text, and then at the right shoe’s text.

As you can see in the fake vs real Off-White Jordan 5 image above, we have pointed out at the font-weight flaws on the replica Off-White Jordan 5 Retro Black pair.

In fact, the counterfeit Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers are most of the time diagnosed with font-weight flaws, which means that they often have the medial text looking either too thick or too thin.

In this case, the counterfeit OW AJ5 Retro Black sneakers have their medial text looking too thin.

We have especially pointed out at the fact that the letter “V” on the fake sneakers is improperly printed as it looks scratched and thinner than the authentic OW Jordan 5 Retro Black sneaker’s “V” character.

The right shoe’s medial text

As for the right shoe’s medial text, let’s have a quick look at the real vs fake OW Jordan 5 Retro Black images, and then let us explain the flaws on the fake Jordans.

We have previously explained that sometimes, the medial text can be either too thick or too thin on the replica Off-White Jordan 5 pairs, and in this case, for the right shoe’s medial text, you can see how the “c. 1990” text is looking thicker than it has to be.

On the other hand, the authentic Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers have their “c. 1990” text looking a lot thinner than the text on the fake Jordan 5’s, and that’s a flaw that’s visible with the naked eye.

Indeed, the whole medial text on the fake Jordan 5’s looks thicker than the text on the legit sneakers, but we have especially pointed out at the “c. 1990” text because there it is the most visible being flawed on the fake Jordans.

Step 2: Real vs fake Off-White Jordan 5 Retro Black rear details

Going to the rear side of the Off-White Jordan 5 Retro Black sneakers, we will have to quickly inspect the Nike AIR logos printed on this area. First of all, let’s have a look at the OW Jordan 5 real vs fake images.

In the fake vs real Off-White Jordan 5 reference images above, we have pointed out how, on the fake Jordan 5 sneakers, the Nike Swoosh logo is looking a lot different than the one on the authentic shoes, and that’s the major flaw here.

So, the fake Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers have their Swoosh logo looking a lot curvier and round than the one on the authentic Off-White sneakers.

This is a flaw that’s most commonly met on the fake Off-White J5 sneakers, and we recommend you to consider that this is a major problem on the fake Jordan 5 sneakers.

Then, moving on to the “A I R” text, you can see how, on the fake shoes, the text is placed higher than the text on the legit Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers.

In fact, the legit OW J5 sneakers have their “A I R” print closer to the bottom side of the sneakers than the text on the fake sneakers.

Besides, the fake “A I R” print also has font-weight problems, as compared to the retail Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers, the fake ones have the “A I R” print looking significantly thicker.

Step 3: Analyze the pattern of the elements on the side of the Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers

As for the third step of the fake vs real OW Jordan 5 legit check guide, we will move on the side of the sneakers, and we just have to analyze the pattern and the placement of the elements on the side.

As you may know and see, the Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers have two big transparent holes/circles on the side of the sneakers.

The problem with the replica Off-White Jordan 5’s transparent circles on the side of the sneakers is that they often look too textured and detailed, and that’s because the replica manufacturers mostly fit in too much stitching around the holes, and that makes the outline of the holes look too thick.

On the other hand, on the authentic Off-White Jordan 5 pairs, you will see that the two transparent circles look less textured, defined, and they have less stitching squeezed around the circle shapes than what they look like on the fake sneakers.

As for the eleventh step of the fake vs real OW Jordan 5 Retro Black legit check guide, we are going to inspect the look of the tongue’s Jumpman logo. Let’s have a look at the fake vs real Off-White Jordan 5 Retro Black reference images:

As you can see in the fake vs real Off-White Jordan 5 image above, the counterfeit sneakers have a stitching problem on the red Jumpman.

The fake Off-White Jordan 5 pairs are most commonly to have the tongue’s Jumpman flawed in terms of density. So, the fake sneakers usually have the hand with the ball in it (the upper hand/left) looking thinner than the authentic sneakers’ hand.

On the other hand, the authentic Off-White Jordan 5 Retro Black sneakers have their hand looking thicker and denser than the fake Jumpman’s hand.

Step 5: Inspect the 3M reflective material on the tongue of the Off-White Jordan 5 Retro

For the fifth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers, we will have to turn the lights off, and turn the flashlight on in order to reveal the 3M reflective material on the tongue of the Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers.

The main problem on the replica OW Jordan 5 sneakers is that they don’t glow properly, as the only look lighten up just a bit, while the authentic Jordans have a more powerful reflectiveness.

In this case, you can see how the replica Off-White Jordan 5 Retro Black sneakers have their 3M reflecting areas looking less defined than the authentic sneakers’ reflective parts.

How can I spot the fake Off-White Jordan 5 in 60 seconds?

There are situations where you may be unable to go through each detailed step explained above when you need to authenticate your Off-White Jordan 5 Retro Black.

That is why we have compiled this quick 60 seconds solution to authenticating your sneakers. Below are the top 5 indicators that can help you determine if you have a fake pair of sneakers or original Off-White x Nike manufactured Jordan 5.

  1. Inspect the medial text. Mainly, the fake medial text is either too thin or too thick on the fake Jordans, and the fake sneakers usually have their text looking scratched and worn-out
  2. Check the rear details of the Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers. Usually, the counterfeit Off-White Jordan 5 Retro Black sneakers have their Nike Swoosh logo looking too curvy and round, and not only that, but even the “A I R” text is either too thick or too thin, and there is a high chance for it to be placed too high on the rear side of the fake sneakers
  3. Analyze the pattern of the side circles. The counterfeit two circles on the side of the sneakers are usually flawed as they are too thick because of the fact that there is too much stitching fit into the outlines of the circles on the fake sneakers
  4. Verify the Jumpman on the tongue of the OW Jordan 5 sneakers. Usually, the fake sneakers have their Jumpman’s upper arm looking less dense and a lot thinner than the authentic sneakers’ arm
  5. Look at the 3M reflective tongue of the Off-White Jordan 5. Mostly, the fake Off-White Jordan 5 sneakers have a poorer quality in the reflecting material
