It is worth mentioning that we are going to refer to the Louis Vuitton Archlight sneakers in the simple form of Louis Vuitton Archlight.

Now that you know what we’re talking about, let’s get you to the proper real vs fake Louis Vuitton Archlight sneakers.

How to spot fake Louis Vuitton Archlight

First of all, we’d like to mention that we consider the rear tab with the Louis Vuitton monogram being the most reliable spot in order to check the authenticity of a Louis Vuitton Archlight pair since replica Louis Vuitton manufacturers never manage to get this tab right.

Step 1: Check the LV monogram rear heel tab

As we mentioned before, we consider the rear heel tab which has the classic Louis Vuitton monogram being the most reliable spot to look at in order to see the fake Louis Vuitton Archlight pairs.

In the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Archlight image above, we have pointed out the fact that, first of all, the colour of the tab on the fake LV sneakers is more contrasted, and the brown colour of the legit Louis Vuitton Archlight sneakers is a bit lighter.

Then, the second problem on the replica Louis Vuitton Archlight’s rear heel tab is that it seems more glossy in the light, while the authentic Lv sneakers’ tab is less glossy in the light.

Lastly here, the flower monogram on the replica Louis Vuitton Archlight rear heel tab is looking a lot wider and larger than the one on the legit LV sneakers.

Step 2: Real vs fake Louis Vuitton Archlight shape

As for the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton Archlight sneakers, you’ll have to inspect the LV shoes from the rear side of them and see how wide the shoes are from this angle.

It is visible in the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Archlight image above how, on the fake LV sneakers, the overall shape in the middle side of the sneakers is too fat and too massive.

On the other hand, the authentic Louis Vuitton Archlight sneakers have their shape from the rear angle looking thinner and less fat than the shape of the replica LV sneakers.

Moving to the lower side of the sneakers, we’ve got to analyze the appearance of the Louis Vuitton logo on the midsoles of the real vs fake LV Archlight sneakers.

In the Louis Vuitton Archlight fake vs real image above, we have pointed out the fact that on the replica Louis Vuitton Archlight sneakers, the LV logo appears less visible than the one on the authentic sneakers.

What we mean is that the counterfeit Louis Vuitton Archlight pairs are most commonly met to have the flaw on the LV midsole logo in which the logo is less thick than the one on the authentic LV Archlight’s logo, which makes the fake pairs to have this logo look less visible.

Step 4: Inspect the toe box area of your Louis Vuitton Archlight

For the fourth step fo the guide on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton Archlight, we are going to inspect the toe box area of the LV sneakers. In case you didn’t know, what we refer to the toe box is the frontal area of the sneakers.

Most of the time, the fake toe box area on the Louis Vuitton Archlight sneakers is either too big (over-inflated) or too small, and less curvy than it has to be.

In this case, the fake Louis Vuitton Archlight’s toe box appears to be a lot curvier than it has to be on the authentic pairs.

This difference can be attributed to the poor attention to detail from the fake manufacturers as well as the lower quality factory equipment used in the production of the sneakers.

Step 5: Verify the LV logo on the sole of your sneakers

Now that you know all of these ways on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton Archlight, we are going to teach you the method of inspecting the Louis Vuitton logo on the soles of the shoes.

The main problem on the counterfeit LV sneakers’ sole logo is that it is often less visible than the logo on the authentic sneakers.

In the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Archlight image above, we have pointed out that the fake LV sneakers’ “MADE IN ITALY” text is almost invisible and unreadable, while on the authentic LV sneakers, it is clearly visible and readable because it is thicker than the print on the fake sneakers.

We’d like to mention that this tell applies only to the unworn or just slightly worn/tried-on a few times sneakers because, on the worn pairs, the print is most likely to be printed off or scratched.

Step 6: Check the insole of your Louis Vuitton Archlight

As for the sixth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton Archlight sneakers, we are going to move inside the shoes and inspect the printed text on the insole.

As you may have seen in the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Archlight image above, the replica LV sneakers have their insole looking quite different.

The copyright (R) print at the top of the text on the insole is placed a lot closer to the “LOUIS VUITTON” print below, while on the legit LV sneakers, the (R) print is placed higher from the “LOUIS VUITTON” text.

Then, you can see how on the fake LV sneakers, the letter “L” is placed too close to the letter “O” in the “LOUIS” print, while on the legit sneakers, there is the same distance between all of the characters.

On the “VUITTON” print, you can see how the letters look a lot thinner than they have to be, and how on the legit sneakers, the text looks a lot thicker.

As for the last spot on the insole, you can see how the counterfeit Louis Vuitton Archlight sneakers’ insole “PARIS” print has the same spacing problem, as the first two letters are too close to each other.

Not only that, but even the shape of the letters seems to be different than the shape of the authentic Louis Vuitton Archlight’s insole text.
