If you are here to learn how to spot fake Christian Louboutin spike sneakers, you are in the right place.
We have prepared this guide on how to check the real vs fake Christian Louboutin spike sneakers with just ten simple spots to look at for it to be easier when you authenticate these sneakers.
It is worth mentioning that we are going to refer to the Christian Louboutin spike sneakers in the simple form of Louboutins or Louboutin spikes.
Now that you know what we’re talking about, let’s get you to the proper real vs fake Louboutin spike sneakers.
We believe that the stitching on the Christian Louboutin spike sneakers might be one of the most reliable spots to look at when checking the real vs fake Louboutin spikes.
Of course, the same flaw with the stitching may not be present on every replica Louboutin spikes pair, and that’s why we recommend you check the rest of the spots that we are about to talk about since replica versions are different.
At the bottom of this article, you will find a short-list on how to spot fake Christian Louboutin spike sneakers, in case you are in a hurry or you don’t want to read the whole real vs fake Christian Louboutin spike sneakers guide.
Since we said previously that we consider the stitching one of the most reliable spots to look at when checking the fake vs real Louboutin spikes sneakers, we are going to check this step first.
Now, if you take a quick look at the real vs fake Louboutin spikes pictures that we linked above, you can notice the main flaws in the replica Louboutins pair with the naked eye.
In fact, the main problem with the replica Louboutin spike sneakers is that they’ve got extra threads hanging around the rest of the stitches, and the quality of them is worse because, as in this example, they’re too many stitches in one place or such.

Now that you know how to check the stitching on your Louboutin spike sneakers, let’s flip the sneakers to the rear side and analyze the heel details and the flaws on the replica Louboutin spike sneakers.
As you can see in the fake vs real Louboutin spike sneakers pictures above, the counterfeit Louboutins have poorer stitching on the upper part of the rear heel.
Besides the stitching quality, you can also notice how in the upper part, the stitches on the fake Louboutins are less angled than the legit ones.
The legit lines of stitching are a lot more arched out of a sudden, while the fake ones are not.
Going a little bit lower on the rear, you’ll notice this line in the middle of the sneakers.
As you may notice, the fake line is less detailed and textured than the legit one, and the stitches above it are, again, poorer in quality terms, since they are not as curvy as the retail Louboutin spike sneakers stitches are.
Moving on to the sides of the Louboutin spike sneakers, we’ll notice two holes in there. Let’s analyze these two and see the differences between the real vs fake Louboutin spike sneakers.
We drew two lines between these two holes on the side of the Louboutin spike sneakers in order for it to be easier to see the distance between them. The green line indicates the legit pair, and the red is for the fake pair.
As you can see, there is a lot more distance between the two legit holes, while on the other hand, the fake pair has less distance between these two side holes.
The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways to authenticate this item.
The next few steps are still reliable signs of authenticity but are for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the steps we’ve explained above to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.
To the front of the Christian Louboutin shoes, we’ve got the spikes on the toe box. That’s even why they’re called “spike” sneakers. Let’s analyze the real vs fake Louboutin spike sneakers pictures together:
This spot is even more noticeable when you take a closer look to the Louboutin spike sneakers, so that’s why we recommend you to check our real vs fake Louboutin spike sneakers images when legit checking one of these.
Anyways, back to this case, you can see how the spike on the fake Christian Louboutin sneakers are too long, and how the legit spikes are shorter.
Now, let’s move on to the pattern of the midsole on the Louboutin spikes sneakers.
As you can see in the pictures above, the fake Christian Louboutin spikes sneakers have a different pattern of the midsole.
The authentic midsole looks more detailed and defined than the fake one, as the fake pattern of the midsole seems to have fewer dots in there.
As for the sixth step of our real vs fake Louboutin spikes sneakers guide, we’re going to analyze the laces.
The main problem with the counterfeit Christian Louboutin sneakers is that the laces have less material used for them, and in fact, the fake pair has the laces looking less sharp than the legit laces.
Let’s also move inside the Louboutin spikes sneakers and check the insoles on both the fake vs real Christian Louboutin spikes sneakers.
As you can see in the pictures above, in the word “Louboutin”, the edge of the letter “n” is too thick and too long, while the legit one is less thick and less long.
The word “Christian” seems to have too much paint, as the counterfeit Louboutin spikes sneakers pair has the letters connected one with another, while on the legit pair, this word doesn’t have the letters this thick, and besides, they’re not even connected.
Let’s flip the sneakers to their rear side, and analyze the sole of the fake vs real Christian Louboutin shoes.
We’ve pointed out how, on the fake Christian Louboutin spike sneakers, the sole is too shiny in light, while the legit pair doesn’t have the “Louboutin” text as shiny as the fake one.
Besides the shininess, you can notice how the fake Louboutin spikes sneakers have some scratches on the sole inscription, and the authentic one doesn’t.
Of course, this spot is more reliable for unworn shoes, or slightly worn shoes, more likely to be worn indoors or just once.
As for the ninth and the last step of our real vs fake Louboutin spikes sneakers guide, we’ve prepared the box label.
The differences between the real vs fake Louboutin spikes sneakers are really obvious, but it is worth both of us to write them, since it may be even easier to notice them.
Starting with the first line that says “LOUIS JUNIOR SPIKES …”, you can see how the fake text seems to be a lot different from the real one, because the font used for the text is different, and the letters are thinner than the ones on the legit box label.
Then, the “Louboutin” signature in the box that’s on the right side of the box label, looks a lot different from the fake box label. The fake label has it looking too much like a xerox printed image, while the legit signature looks clean.
Besides, it is really important to check the fact that, on the fake box label, at the signature, there is missing the word “Christian”, and on the legit box label, this text is present.
Also, the text above the barcode seems to be too thin and too big, while the authentic one is the opposite of it.
