Want to learn how to spot fake Golden Goose Mid Star sneakers? Afraid of being scammed with fakes?

Then no worries, you’ve into the right place as we’ve got you covered with this fake vs real Golden Goose Mid star legit check guide.

All you have to do is just follow along with the guide, and we’ll tell you the best flaws on the best Mid Star Golden Goose replicas, as well as the right details on the real shoes.

In order to make the Golden Goose Mid Star sneaker authenticity job easier, we are going to attach fake vs real Mid Star GGDB shoe comparison images with each step – the images will help you see the flaws on the replicas easier.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Golden Goose Mid Star sneakers is to look at the text written on the insole of the shoes. Every Golden Goose Mid Star replica has its text at the wrong thickness and size, while the real GGDB Mid Star shoes are always flawless. The print on the authentic insoles should look the same throughout each authentic pair of Mid Star Golden Gooses.

How to spot fake Golden Goose Mid Star sneakers

Step 1: Fake vs real Mid Star Golden Goose sneaker insole comparison

Now as we’ve said it before, we consider the text on the insole as the way which will easily tell the authenticity of a Golden Goose Mid Star pair of sneakers.

And as we’ve promised, let’s first have a look at the comparison image with the authentic vs fake Mid Star sneakers, and right after that, we’ll explain everything that happens in this image.

The image with the fake vs real Golden Goose Mid/Star sneakers above shows you how the fake pair’s text is at the wrong thickness and how the fake pair’s font is the wrong one.

Starting with the main text, you can see how the letters in the “STAR” text use a different font from the real shoes, as the letters on the fake shoes are too curvy and a bit too small. The authentic shoes should always use the same font.

Looking at the “GOLDEN GOOSE DEUXE BRAND®” text, you an notice how the fake pair’s text is too thin and how it is too little visible.

Back to the authentic Mid Star Golden Goose shoes, you can see how the same inscription at the bottom of the insole looks thicker and how it is way more legible than the fake one.

Lastly, the word “VENEZIA” on the fake shoes has the same flaw: on the fake shoes, it is too little visible, while the real pair’s text is more noticeable.

Step 2: Authenticate the text written on the exterior side of the tongue on your Mid Stars

Going to the second method on how to spot fake Golden Goose Mid Star sneakers, we now want to have a quick look at the real vs fake Mid Star GGDB shoes for their badges on the exterior side of their tongues.

The picture with the fake vs real Golden Goose shoes above shows you how the fake pair’s text on the tongue has three main flaws.

First of all, looking at the main text, we’ve seen how the “GGDB” inscription is too thin and how the letters are too narrow on the fake Mid Stars.

On the other hand, the real Golden Goose shoes have their same “GGDB” inscription looking thicker and more massive than the fake pair’s text.

Then, looking at the “MADE IN ITALY” phrase we’ve noticed how the replica Mid Stars’ inscription is too stretched, as it looks way too tall when put side-by-side with the real Mid Stars.

Speaking of which, the authentic Golden Goose Mid Star shoes have their “MADE IN ITALY” text looking smaller, as it is boxier and shorter than the fake pair’s “MADE IN ITALY” phrase.

Lastly the replica Golden Goose Mid Star shoes have their “SIZE ___” text looking too thick for all of the letters and for the underline next to the word.

Back to the authentic Mid Star Golden Goose sneakers, you can see how the “SIZE ___” text looks thinner for both the word and for the underline.

Step 3: Inspect the curviness of the toe box on your GGDB Mid Star sneakers

Proceeding to the third way of the Golden Goose Mid Star authenticity check process, we will go to the profile side of the shoes.

More precisely, we want to focus on the front side of the shoes, where the fake vs real Golden Goose Mid Stars have their toe boxes.

authentic vs fake golden goose mid star

The picture with the replica vs authentic Golden Goose Mid/Star sneakers above shows you how the fake pair’s toe box is too little curvy, as the front side’s edge is lifted as little as it doesn’t even seem like it curves.

On the other hand, you can see how the real Golden Goose shoes have their toe box way curvier, as the front part of the shoes lifts up and it is further away from the ground than the fake one.

Step 4: Analyze the text written on the side of your Golden Goose sneakers

As for the fourth way of the guide on how to legit check a pair of Golden Goose Mid Star shoes, we now want to go more to the back of the profile side on these shoes.

There we are going to find the “GGDB MID/STAR” on the real vs fake Golden Goose Mid Stars – that’s what we need to focus on right now.

real vs fake golden goose mid star

As you can see in the image above, the fake pair of Mid Stars has its text at the wrong thickness, as it is way thicker than the real pair’s text.

Mentioning the real shoes, you can notice how the “GGDB MID/STAR” text seen on the real shoes looks thinner and narrower than the fake one.

At the same time, the fake pair’s text looks as if it was touched right after it was freshly painted, as it has some kind of a shadow behind the letters – this can be seen especially on the “MID/STAR” text.

On the other hand, the real shoes have their “GGDB MID/STAR” text printed without any kind of shadow, as there you can see the text without any effect – it’s just the plain inscription.

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.

Step 5: Have a look at the “GOLDEN” text on the rear side of your shoes

The fifth step of the guide on how to authenticate Golden Goose Mid Star sneakers will have us flipping the shoes to their rear sides, where we’ll have a look at the “GOLDEN” inscription.

This picture with the real vs fake Golden Goose Mid Star shoes above shows you how the fake pair’s “GOLDEN” text is too thin, and this can be seen especially if you look at the spacing in-between the letters.

Looking at the spacing between the letters “G”O and “O”, as well as in-between the “L” and the “D”, you can see how the fake Mid stars have too much space – that’s a strong sign of some thin letters.

On the other hand, the real shoes have their text thicker, as there’s less space in-between each letter when compared to the spacing between the letters on the fake shoes.

Step 6: Check the placement of the holes on the interior profile side of the shoes

For the sixth step of the guide on how to authenticate Mid Star Golden Goose shoes, we are going to flip the shoes to their interior profile side.

There you can see three holes which may differ from a colourway to another. Some shoes have a metal outline for these holes while other shoes will have these holes with no outline and looking smaller than the other type.

No matter the style of these perforations, they should be aligned at a specific level above the midsole.

The image with the fake vs real Golden Goose Mid Star shoes above shows you how the fake pair’s three holes are placed too close to the midsole, as they are too low on the side of the shoes.

On the other hand, the holes seen on the real shoes are placed a tad bit higher than the fake ones.

If it seems like the authentic shoes have their holes placed too low as well, keep in mind that in the image above we’ve compared the authentic shoes which have the thick metal outline all around the holes, while the fake pair’s hole are the in the simpler version, without any outlining.

Since the fake shoes have no outline for these perforations, they should’ve been placed a bit higher, as they should’ve been at the same level as the real holes.
