We know that learning how to spot the fake Comme Des Garcons Converse becomes harder and harder as the fakes get better. That’s why we’ve got this ultimate legit check tutorial.

How to spot fake CDG Converse

To know if your Converse CDG are legit or fake, see if the size tag (inside the tongue) has very thick prints. If so, then you’re looking at a fake pair.

1. Size tag

1.1. First comparison

  • The replica pair has its numbers improperly font-weighted.
  • The fake shoes have their numbers looking too thick when compared to the real deal.
  • The fake pair’s eyes are too small, and they are bigger on the real CDG Converses.

On the other hand, the authentic shoes have all of their numbers looking thinner than the ones found on the fake pair.

1.2. Second comparison

Now let’s also have a quick look at another real vs fake CDG Converse comparison and let’s analyze a new fake size tag.

  • Not reliable: The fake shoes don’t have black bars above and below the size tag
    • Keep in mind that there are newer releases of authentic shoes which do not have black bars, and therefore, we do not consider the bars reliable signs of authenticity.
  • The “FABRIQUE EN VIETNAM” text, the “15020..” is too thick on the fake pair.
    • This print may differ from one pair to another.
  • The fake CDG heart doesn’t have the eyes touching the top and the bottom sides.
    • On the other hand, the authentic CDG Converse heart logo on the size tag has the eyes covering the white area from the top to the bottom side.
  • The fake text that indicates the “UK” size is a lot thicker than the “UK” text on the authentic size tag.

2. Heart shape

As for the second step of the fake vs real CDG Converse legit check guide, we are going to quickly analyze the shape of the red CDG logo heart on the side of both the CDG Converse real vs fake sneakers.

  • The fake heart logo is smaller than it has to look.
  • The same heart is also placed further from the stitching below it.

The authentic Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse heart has to be really close to touching the stitching above.

3. Heart eyes

Because we were still talking about the real vs fake CDG Converse heart logo shape, let’s also check out the heart’s eye.s

  • The eyes are 100% circles, and the authentic pairs never have that perfect circle shape.
  • The flaw is most noticeable on the left eye of the fake logo.
  • The fake pair’s right eye looks less like a circle, and it has a more random shape.
  • The fake shoes have a less round shape, and the authentic eye is more of a circle on the right eye.

On the other hand, the authentic CDG Converse shoes have the left eye looking less like a perfect circle, and it has a different shape.

Indeed, it may be hard to get your eyes formed to spot fake CDG Converse eyes, but that’s why we’re here today, to teach you how to spot fake Converse CDG shoes and even more, that’s why we attach these images.

That’s for your legit checking to be easier, so that’s why we recommend you refer to our pictures every time you authenticate a Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse pair of sneakers.

4. Perforations

We have used the green line highlighting the right distance between the holes on the side of the Comme Des Garcons Converse, and the red line showing you the distance on the fake shoes.

  • The fake Comme Des Garcons Converse have a tiny distance between these two holes on the side of the shoes.

At the same time, the legit Converse sneakers have a longer and bigger distance between these two.

5. Rear stitching

As for the fifth and the last step of the Converse x Comme Des Garcons CDG legit check guide, we are going to analyze the stitching on the rear heel side of these shoes.

  • Fake Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse pairs may have extra threads and hanging stitches.
  • The fake CDG Converse above has a big thread hanging on the right shoe, above the ankle area.

On the authentic Converse x CDG sneakers, you should not meet any stitches hanging where they should not be.

Shortlist: Tell if your CDG Converse are fake in 30 seconds

  1. Analyze the size tag of your shoes. Mostly, the texts on the size tag of the fake Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse shoes have their size tag’s text looking too thick.
  2. Check the shape of the CDG heart logo on the side of the shoes. The authentic heart has to be placed close to the stitching above it (the stitching below the lace holes), and most of the time, the fake hearts are too small and they are too far from these stitches.
  3. Inspect the shape of the eyes on the CDG Heart logo. Most of the time, the fake eyes look like perfect circles or they just don’t follow the right pattern.
  4. Verify the distance between the holes on the side of the CDG Converse. Mostly, the fake shoes have a tiny distance between these two metal holes, and the authentic Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse shoes have a bigger distance.
  5. Look at the stitching around the sneakers, especially on the rear side. Most of the time, the fake Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse sneakers will have extra threads and stitches hanging around the shoes where they shouldn’t be.

The five fake vs real CDG Converse steps outlined above are well-detailed and it will be time demanding to perform each authentication step when you need to confirm the originality of your Comme Des Garcons Converse.
