How to spot fake Off-White Converse Chuck Taylor

1. Medial text

    2. The “c.” text is proportionate and well-designed.
    3. The “1917” text is sized appropriately.
    4. The “M” in “Massachusetts” does not exhibit any excess paint.
    5. The “TM” text is clearly visible and not obstructed by any other elements.
  • Fake:
    1. The printing quality is poorer, making the text less visible.
    2. The “c.” text appears boxy and squarish.
    3. The “1917” text is too wide.
    4. The “M” in “Massachusetts” has an extra thread of black paint.
    5. The “TM” text is not visible, as it is covered by the Converse Chuck Taylor logo.

2. Blue panels

Off-White x Converse – Panels Flaw
  • Authentic:
    1. The toe box has an icy blue, cold look.
    2. The midsole also maintains this icy blue tone.
  • Fake:
    1. The toe box appears white instead of icy blue.
    2. The midsole also incorrectly appears in white.


Off-White x Converse – “VULCANIZED” Text
  • Authentic:
    • The “VULCANIZED” text on the midsole is clear, well-defined, and finished, offering a professional look.
  • Fake:
    • The “VULCANIZED” text appears scratched, worn out, and incomplete, particularly on the bottom side of the midsole.

4. Heel

You’ll find this logo on most Converse Chuck Taylor sneakers.

Off-White x Converse – Heel Logo
  • Authentic:
    • Sharp stars and thinner “CONVERSE ALL STAR” text.
  • Fake:
    • Rounded stars and thicker text.

5. Insole

Off-White x Converse – Insole
  • Authentic:
    • “THE TEN” text is larger and spaced well, and the “X” logo has sharp corners.
  • Fake:
    • “THE TEN” text is smaller and thicker, and the “X” logo has rounded corners.

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.

6. Sole

Off-White x Converse – Sole Flaws
  • Authentic:
    • The sole pattern has greater depth between the lines, and the middle gap has a lighter blue tone.
  • Fake:
    • The sole pattern lacks depth between the lines, and the middle gap appears too bright.

7. Toe box

7.1. “LEFT”

Off-White x Converse – “LEFT” Text
  • Authentic:
    • The “LEFT” text is of higher quality and the quotation marks have a standard shape.
  • Fake:
    • The “LEFT” text is visibly of lower quality, and the shape of the quotation marks is irregular. The text also shows uneven bumps.

7.2. “RIGHT”

Off-White x Converse – “RIGHT” Text
  • Authentic:
    • The “RIGHT” text is clear and evenly printed, and the quotation marks are straight lines.
  • Fake:
    • The “RIGHT” text appears to be of lower quality, with noticeable bumps making it look too thick. The quotation marks are not straight lines but instead appear curvy and deformed.

Shortlist: Authenticate your Off-White Converse

  1. Medial Text: On counterfeit Off-White x Converse Chuck Taylor, the medial text often appears too wide and seems scratched or worn out.
  2. Panels: Replicas tend to have panels that are too white, lacking the icy blue hue of genuine pairs.
  3. Midsole Text: The “VULCANIZED” text on fake pairs often lacks clarity and opacity.
  4. Rear Heel Logo: On fake sneakers, the top corner stars of the Chuck Taylor logo tend to be oversized with curvy edges. Additionally, the text appears too thick.
  5. Insoles: Counterfeit versions often have a “THE TEN” text that’s too small and thick. The “X” Off-White logo edges on fakes are more curved than sharp.
  6. Toe Box Text: The “LEFT” and “RIGHT” inscriptions on fake pairs are typically bumpy and overly thick.

Here are the key indicators to quickly determine if your Off-White Converse Chuck Taylor is fake.
