Let’s explore the 8 ways to spot fake Dior Walk’n’Dior sneakers.

This guide has been written with the help of our expert Dior authentications team.

If you want to authenticate your Walk’n’Dior shoes, rest assured, you’re in good hands.

We’ll now look at the 8 best ways to spot fake Dior shoes.

How to tell if your Dior sneakers are fake

To tell if your Dior sneakers are fake, check if the text inside the tongue has mixed font-weights for its symbols. Original shoes must have the same thickness for all characters.

However, this applies to the Walk’n’Dior and not every other model.

1. Interior tongue

  • Authentic:
    1. Uses a consistent font.
    2. Uniform character thickness.
    3. Proper character spacing.
  • Fake:
    1. Different font style.
    2. Varying character thickness.
    3. Characters are too closely spaced.

2. Insole

  • Authentic:
    1. Consistent and accurate font style.
    2. All characters have a uniform thickness.
    3. “Christian” text is thicker, especially noticeable in the “C” and “h”.
    4. “Dior” and “PARIS” have the correct thickness.
  • Fake:
    1. Incorrect font style.
    2. Inconsistent letter thickness across different texts.
    3. “Christian” appears notably thin, especially in the “C” and “h”.
    4. “Dior” and “PARIS” texts are too thick.

3. Exterior tongue

  • Authentic:
    • Features well-defined stitching.
    • Stitching is thicker and more prominent.
  • Fake:
    • Stitching appears thin and less defined.

4. Midsole

  • Authentic:
    • Stitches appear longer and more substantial.
  • Fake:
    • Stitching looks boxy and slightly thinner.

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.

4. CD Plates

  • Authentic:
    • The “CD” text is more refined and thinner.
  • Fake:
    • The “CD” inscription appears too thick, likely due to how deeply it’s embedded into the metal plate.

6. Toe box

  • Authentic:
    • The toe box appears thinner, more streamlined, and has a pronounced curve.
  • Fake:
    • The toe box looks bulkier, thicker, and has a less defined curvature.

7. Laces

  • Authentic:
    • The “CHRISTIAN DIOR J’ADIOR” text on the laces is evenly stitched with a consistent thickness across all letters.
  • Fake:
    • The text appears overly thick and bulky, especially noticeable on the letter “C” in “CHRISTIAN.”

Fun fact: The same text is on the Dior J’Adior Pumps!

8. Heel

  • Authentic:
    • The “CHRISTIAN DIOR” text is well-defined, thicker, and wider, presenting a clear and distinct appearance.
  • Fake:
    • The text appears too thin and narrow, lacking the robustness seen on the genuine pair.

Shortlist: Quickly authenticate your Dior shoes

  1. Inspect the print on the tongue’s interior side of the Dior Walk’n’Dior sneakers. Counterfeit versions often use incorrect fonts or improper font-weights.
  2. Examine the insole text. Replicas usually display text with incorrect thickness.
  3. Review the tongue stitching. Most fake pairs feature stitching that is too thin.
  4. Assess the midsole stitching. Fakes often have stitching that is of the wrong thickness or length.
  5. Inspect the “CD” text on the lacing plates. Counterfeit versions typically present this text too thickly.
  6. Check the toe box inflation level. Fake Dior sneakers often have a less curvy and thicker toe box.
  7. Look at the text stitched into the laces. Counterfeit sneakers tend to have overly thick lace text.
  8. Analyze the text on the rear heel side. Fake pairs often display text that’s either too thick or thin, and either too narrow or wide.
