The most relevant spot fake Louis Vuitton Air Force 1 is to look at the medial text on each shoe. Fake LV AF1 always have their text too thin and with too much space in between the letters. That’s not to be seen on the real shoes!
The notorious fashion designer Virgil Abloh left behind one of the most wanted sneakers by the community, and these are the Louis Vuitton Air Force 1.
In the past, we’ve seen Nike x Virgil Abloh’s collaboration with the classic Air Force Ones, for which you can see legit check guides here. Though, the LV AF1 collab goes to the next level.
The Louis Vuitton Air Forces give you everything you may want from a pair of shoes: streetwear and luxury at the same time.
This guide applies to all colourways of these shoes.
While these are a gem, there’s also a lot of stuff to look at in order to know whether you have fake or real Louis Vuitton Air Force Ones. Today, we’re going to teach you everything about legit checking these shoes.
You can spot fake Louis Vuitton Air Forces by checking the medial text on the profile side of each shoe. Fake pairs always have inscriptions at a different thickness compared to the real ones.
We’re talking about Louis Vuitton, so you know that authentic shoes always have only the highest quality materials and the highest attention to each and every little detail.
Summary: Fake LV AF1 pairs always have very thin (or excessively thick) inscriptions.
We’re going to split this step into two parts: the left shoe and the right shoe’s medial text, compared on both the fake vs real Louis Vuitton Air Force 1.
Not to be seen on the real shoes!
In this case, the genuine pair’s text must be thinner than the one seen on the fake pair.
Summary: Fake Louis Vuitton Air Force 1 shoes have super thick text.
You’ll never see the text on the real shoes as thick and as big as the one seen on the fake Louis Vuitton Air Forces from the image above.
Summary: Fake “AIR” prints always have the quote symbols looking too thin.
You can notice how the real pair’s quotes are thicker, shorter, and generally boxier than the fake ones.
Summary: Look out for any big text and thick stitches.
By ‘rear details’, we’re talking about the “LOUIS VUITTON ® PARIS” text and basically all of the stitches on the back of the shoes.
Notice how the authentic pair’s inscriptions are smaller and thicker, having a boxier look than the fake Louis Vuitton Air Force 1’s text.
The real pair’s threads are thinner and they fit deeper and better into the vertical patch.
A quick mention:
If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.
Therefore, the authentic pair’s text is engraved, while the fake one is just printed.
On the other hand, the real pair’s “LACET” text looks thicker and the letters are properly, straightly aligned on the stitches.
The real pair is, as you may expect, the opposite – the genuine Louis Vuitton Air Force 1 presents stitches that are way longer than the fake ones.
The authentic Nike Air Force 1 must have a bulky look for the toe box, and in this case of a replica, the thick look is missing.
On the other hand, you can notice how the genuine Louis Vuitton Air Force 1’s monogram flowers are engraved deeper into the leather, hence having a thicker look than the fake.
To be fair, this is harder to notice, but the same leg on the letter “L” of the authentic pair’s “LV” logo is thinner.
If your pair’s box looks anything different than the authentic one portrayed above, then you’re 100% looking at a fake box of the Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1.
Authentic LV AF1 boxes must come from Louis Vuitton, not from Nike x Off-White.
