This is the ultimate Jimmy Choo authentication guide for all your shoes/heels.

Works for any model + colorway + year of manufacturing.

How to tell if Jimmy Choo is real/fake

The #1 way to tell if your Jimmy Choo shoes are real is to check the sole’s engraving. Fakes often have very thin text.

1. Sole

  • Authentic: Thicker, deeper engravings.
  • Fake: Visibly thinner text.

2. Stitching

  • Authentic: Dense and thick threads.
  • Fake: Stitching is too thin and not dense enough.

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.

3. Insole

  • Authentic: Thinner inscriptions.
  • Fake: Thicker text.

4. Crystals

Authentic crystals must reflect all the light landing on top of them.

You may see fakes not doing so — hence, that’s poor materials.
