The first thing you should look at when you legit check the Gucci Ace sneakers is the footbed. The footbed is the material between the sole and the insole. You have to remove the insole from the sneakers in order to check out the footbed. We consider this the most reliable spot for the Gucci Ace sneakers.
As you’ve clicked on our guide, we think that you want to know how to legit check the Gucci Ace Sneakers. Gucci has sneakers for all of your styles, so we made this guide with the best spots to look out for when you want to buy one of these pairs. Because we love sneakers too, we all want to buy them safely.
There are many replicas of the said pair of sneakers and it is important for you to know how to spot fake Gucci Ace pairs.
First, we would like to inform you that all of the details we will look out for, apply to all of the colourways made for the Gucci Ace sneakers. Mostly, we will have comparison pictures for the Gucci Ace Bee and the Gucci Ace Tiger.
So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get you to know how to legit check the Gucci Ace sneakers! Scroll down in order to learn.
As we said before, the footbed is the most reliable spot we consider when legit checking the Gucci Ace sneakers.
The footbed is the material that’s been placed between the sole and the insole.
In fact, in order to get to the footbed, you need to go inside the sneakers and remove the insole.
We believe so because fake manufactures got the pattern or the colour of the footbed wrong. The footbed has to be brown and with the classic Gucci connected print.
Fake Gucci Ace Sneakers craft wrong footbeds because they usually make the Gucci logos black instead of brown.
We’ve highlighted a close-up in the quadrants – one can also notice the slightly different font. Also, you can see some little details being mistaken.
As for the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Gucci Ace sneakers, we are going to analyze the real vs fake Gucci sneakers’ “GUCCI” text on the rear side of these.
In the fake vs real Gucci Ace image above, we have pointed out the fact that on the fake sneakers, the letters appear to be printed like a sticker.
The legit shoes’ rear “GUCCI” text appears to be stitching in the sneakers, unlike the replica shoes which have their text “glued” on the shoes.
Moreover, we’d like to bring you now to see the image in which we will analyze the shape of the letters on the fake vs real Gucci Ace shoes below.
In the Gucci Ace fake vs real image above we have pointed out the fact that, on the fake Gucci Ace shoes, the letter “C” appears to be a lot thicker and curvier on the fake sneakers, while on the authentic Gucci Aces, the letter “C” is sharp and straight, never to be curvy or thick.
Then, at the top left corner of the right leg on the letter “U”, you can see how the fake Gucci Ace shoes have their letter looking less defined than the letter on the authentic Gucci shoes.
In the real vs fake Gucci Ace image above, we wanted to give you a visual of the real vs fake Gucci Ace in the green colour, which’s flaws apply from the red colourway as well.
As for the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Gucci Ace sneakers, we are going to analyze the insoles on both the fake vs real Gucci Ace shoes.
The insole is the surface which your foot stands on inside the sneakers, and it is placed above the sole itself. That’s why it is called “insole”.
In the fake vs real Gucci Ace sneakers image above, we have pointed out the fact that, on the fake Gucci shoes, there is a text missing on the rearer side.
The highlighted text will always be present on the authentic Gucci Ace’s insole, while on the fake Gucci shoes, it is a common fact that it is missing.
As for the fourth step of the guide on how to see fake vs real Gucci Ace sneakers, we are going to analyze the patch on the side of the sneakers which contains the bee, snake and every other element, differing from the models of the Gucci Ace sneakers.
There are multiple variations of the decorative patch on the Gucci Ace sneaker, yet this comparison will cover the bee and the snake patch.
However, it would be best to look on websites likes grailed.com or goat.com to find an authentic example of your patch (should it not be one of these two) and compare them.
In the fake vs real Gucci Ace image above we gave you a look at the sneakers without our help, but below, we have the same real vs fake Gucci Ace image, but this time, with our help in order for you to understand this easier.
In the Gucci Ace real vs fake image above, we have pointed out the fact that on the fake sneakers, there is too much distance from the bee and to the midsole of these shoes.
In fact, the authentic Gucci shoes have a smaller distance from the bee to the midsole, and you’ll never see too much space from the bee to the midsole on the legit sneakers, as you can see on the fake Gucci shoes.
On the fake Gucci Ace sneakers, you can see how the snake’s tongue is different, having an outline that shouldn’t be there.
In fact, the authentic Gucci Ace sneakers have their snakes’s tongue looking just pure grey, while the fake sneakers’ coloured grey tongue has a black outline which shouldn’t be there. This, you will never see on a legit Gucci Ace pair.
Not only that, but you can also see how the fake sneakers’ snake is touching the patch at the top, while the legit sneakers will never have their snake touching the patch at the top of it.
Now we are going to move inside the sneakers, and analyze the real vs fake Gucci Ace sneakers’ numbers on the inner side of the tongue.
First of all, let’s have a quick look at the fake vs real Gucci Ace sneakers images, and then let us explain the flaws on the fake shoes.
The text on the tongue of the Gucci Ace Sneakers should reveal the size of the shoe – make sure it matches. Besides that, it should never be golden – we’ve seen it engraved like in this photo or silver, but never golden.
Moving back on the rear side of the sneakers, we have to analyze the Gucci Ace sneakers in order to see how the scales appear to be on our sneakers.
The scales at the heel should be directed horizontally, not vertically like on the fake Gucci Ace sneakers, which is something you will see quite often (on the fake shoes).
Moreover, the replica Gucci Ace sneakers miss the definition and detail of the authentic version, showing poor craftsmanship.
This poor craftsmanship can be easily seen in the fake vs real Gucci Ace sneakers image above, while on the authentic sneakers, you can see how there is a lot of quality, unlike the cheap material used for the fake shoes.
Given the fact that this shoe isn’t an incredibly popular model due to price, availability and also because of many variations throughout the years, it’s hard to create a one-fits-all general rule.
However, there are some inconsistencies that may help you spot the fake Gucci Ace Sneakers.
1 – Look out for irregularities like this. On the fakes, there’s too much spacing between these lines and they seem to have different fonts.
2 – It wouldn’t make any sense why there’d be any handwriting on the box
3 – There should be a silhouette of the shoe just like in the authentic example, but never render as in the fake box displayed.
And then there’s this type of tag which can be easily identified as a fake one – looks nothing like the real one and has inconsistencies like extra spacing between “I” and “taly” (in Italy) or no barcode number.
In the image above, we have shown you an example of an authentic Gucci Ace box label compared to a box label of poorer quality, and the differences are pretty self-explanatory, as we previously mentioned them too in the first fake vs real Gucci Ace images before.
