Let’s focus on the Very Prive for now.

How to spot fake Louboutin Very Prive heels

To spot fake Louboutin Very red bottoms, check the insole and sole inscriptions.

Replicas often miss the mark on text thickness, while genuine ones boast flawless details.

Curious? Dive in for more.

1. Insole logo


  • Thicker and well-defined “hristian” text, with all letters visible without peeling off.
  • Thinner and scratch-free “CL” logo symbol.


  • “hristian” text is too thick, and the letter “a” is barely visible, with the print already peeling off.
  • “CL” logo symbol is too thick and has some peeling and scratches.

Finding it too hard? Reach out to our Louboutin experts:

2. Paris print

  • Authentic: Thicker and smaller “Paris” text.
  • Fake: “Paris” text is too thin, wide, and larger than the authentic pair’s text.

3. Sole logo

  • Authentic:
    • Thinner “hristian” text and “CL” logo symbol.
  • Fake:
    • Thicker “hristian” text and “CL” logo symbol.
    • The “ouboutin” text is also too thin on the fake heels.

4. Made in Italy

Inscription found on the sole of the shoes.

  • Authentic: Thinner “MADE IN ITALY” and “40” text.
  • Fake: Thicker “MADE IN ITALY” and “37” text.

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.

5. Back

  • Authentic: Middle stitching less deeper than the fake, creating a smoother look.
  • Fake: Stitching is too deep, causing the area around it to appear like a gap.

Shortlist: Verify your Louboutins

  1. Insole Signature: Counterfeit shoes often display a mismatched font weight for their letters.
  2. “Paris” Text on Insoles: On replicas, this text typically appears too thick.
  3. Sole Signature: Fake pairs frequently get the font weight of the signature wrong.
  4. “MADE IN ITALY” & Size Text: Check these inscriptions, as knockoffs might present them as overly thick or thin.
  5. Rear View of Pigalle Heels: Counterfeit versions often exhibit excessively thick stitching.

At times, you might find it challenging to delve into every detailed step provided above to verify your Louboutin heels.

For those moments, we’ve curated a swift 60-second guide.
