You can spot fake Dior B23 by checking if the text inside the tongue is bolded instead of using a regular font. Fake pairs always have thicker prints, while original Dior B23 pairs have thin text.

If you want to know how to spot the fake Dior B23 sneakers, you found the right place.

Since the popularity of the Dior B23 sneakers keeps on growing, we’re here today with the most complete guide on how to legit check the Dior B23 sneakers.

We’ve managed to put all of the things together into this article that contains 12 of the most reliable spots to look at when checking the authenticity of the Dior B23 sneakers.

Without any further ado, let’s jump into the guide.

How to tell if your Dior B23 are real or fake

You can tell if Dior B23 are real or fake by checking the text inside the tongue. A fake pair always uses bolded text instead of a regular font, hence why fakes have thicker inscriptions.

Let’s check this out!

1. Dior Oblique print

  • On the replica pair, the “r” in the word “Dior” does not exist.
  • If you take a look at the legit Dior B23 picture, you can see how the “r” is fully visible.

This is a blatant mistake that instantly calls out a fake Dior B23 pair.

Finding it too hard? Reach out to our Dior experts:

2. Interior tongue text

  • The fake shoes have their “MADE IN ITALY” text too big when compared to the text found on the legit shoes.
  • The same print is too thick on the fake shoes, while the print on the legit pair is thinner.
  • The text below is also too big but thick on the fake shoes.

Notice how the authentic pair has thinner inscriptions than the counterfeit Dior B23s.

2.1. Where are Dior B23 shoes made?

Authentic Dior B23 shoes are made in Italy. Every pair says this on the label inside the tongue, as well as on the box.

On the other hand, +95% of the fake Dior B23 shoes are made in China.

3. Insole

  • The fake pair has the “DIOR” text looking thinner and narrower.
  • The “MADE IN ITALY” text is excessively thick on the fake Dior B23 insole.

As for the authentic Dior B23 sneakers, we have pointed out in the real vs fake Dior B23 image above how the legit pair has its “MADE IN ITALY” text looking thinner than the one on the fake pair.

4. Midsole box logo

Dior B23 Sneakers Midsole Logo
  • The replica “DIOR” text is looking too thick because the replica factory has used too much material for the text.
  • The authentic logo looks more like a rectangle, while the fake pair has the rectangle too short.
  • Hence, the fake pair actually has a square instead of a rectangle.

These are little details that are worth paying attention to.

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.

5. Midsole stitching

  • The fake Dior B23 have thicker stitches on the midsole.
  • Besides, the fake stitches are too short. They look too boxy compared to the real ones.

The authentic Dior B23 sneaker’s midsole stitching is smaller, thinner, and more subtle.

We recommend that you download our app, where we organized all this information (along with other fake vs real guides for streetwear items) properly so that you will be able to pull up this visual comparison fast.

6. Heel bump

  • The replica Dior B23 sneakers are less curved on the rear side.

The authentic pair is a lot more curved. This is a spot that fake Dior B23 manufacturers don’t pay too much attention to.

7. Pull tab

  • The fake Dior B23 pair’s pull tab is too short, and the authentic pair has the pull tab longer.

This is yet another thing that fake Dior B23 manufacturers don’t pay too much attention to, but it is worth considering looking at the length of the pull tab when legit checking the B23s.

8. Midsole pattern

Moving a bit lower from the pull tab and going to the midsole again, but on the rear side of the Dior B23s.

Mainly, there is a problem with the diamond shapes. Let’s have a look at the comparison image:

Dior B23 Sneakers Midsole
  • The fake Dior B23 sneaker’s midsole isn’t as detailed as the authentic pair.

The things you have to look at on the midsole are the diamond-shaped parts, which are too wide on the replica Dior B23s, and the real ones are smaller in width.

9. Sole

  • The diamonds are not as defined on the fake pair.
  • The fake diamonds are also too large when compared to the real ones.

Due to this flaw, the authentic Dior B23 sole’s diamonds look like they’re denser.

10. Shape

Dior B23 Sneakers – Lace Holes Placement
  • The lace holes on the fake Dior B23 sneakers are wrongly positioned.

The line on the replica shoes is way too curved and the legit line is less curved.

11. Front patch

  • The fake shoes have their white front patch too big.
  • The patch is too close to the translucent side of the fake shoes.

On the other hand, the authentic shoes have their front block smaller on the sides of the shoes, as there is more empty room between the white patch and the translucent side of the shoes.

12. Box label

  • The barcode’s text uses a different font on the fake shoes.
  • The fake box’s barcode text is too small, boxy and thick on the fake shoes.
  • The replica Dior B23’s box label does not have the shoe monogram printed correctly, as it is thinner and printed with less quality than the one found on the authentic Dior B23’s box label.
  • The fake shoes also have the text below the monogram looking too small, thin, and barely visible.

On the other hand, the same text found on the authentic shoes’ box label is bigger, thicker, more defined, and easier to read.

Shortlist: Authenticate Dior B23 in 60 seconds

  1. Look at the “Dior” Oblique logo. Fakes sometimes miss the “r” in the word “Dior”.
  2. Look at the text on the interior side of the tongue of your Dior B23s. Mostly, fake shoes have their text looking too big and thick.
  3. Verify the print on the insole of your Dior B2. Mostly, the replica Dior B23 sneakers have their text on the insole improperly font-weighted.
  4. Verify the “DIOR” text on the midsole box. Replica Dior B23 pairs look like a box instead of a rectangle.
  5. Verify the midsole stitching so it won’t be too thick.
  6. Check the heel bump of the Dior B23s. Fakes are less curved.
  7. Analyze the length of the pull tab so it won’t be too short.
  8. Inspect the details on the midsole. Fake midsoles have diamonds too wide and less detailed.
  9. Look at the sole. The same problem with the wide diamonds applies here too.
  10. Check how the lace holes are aligned. The imaginary line of the fake lace hole placement is too curvy.
  11. Have a look at the shoes for the white patch on the toe box. Usually, the fake shoes have their patch too big.
  12. Inspect the box label of your Dior B23s. Most of the time, the fake Dior B23 sneakers have their box label’s symbols poorly printed.

There are situations, where you may be unable to go through each detailed step, explained above when you need to authenticate your Dior B23 Oblique Logo sneakers.
