How to spot fake Air Force 1 Off-White Brooklyn

The best way to spot fake Off-White AF1 Brooklyn is to check the size tag.

Every fake pair has the wrong font-weight for the text, as it is usually too thick on the fake pairs, and sometimes it is visibly thinner than on a real pair.

For the full answer, let’s check the numerous steps right now.

Step 1: Size tag inscriptions

As said before, the size tag instantly tells if you have a fake or a real pair of Off-White Air Forces. Whenever it’s possible, make sure to check the size tag before buying a pair of these.

Flaws on the fake pair:

  • UPC text: It is too thin, and the real pair is supposed to have thicker inscriptions.
  • CN text: Too thin once again, and thicker on the real pair — this goes to the numbers too.
  • Nike link: The last line of text is too thin, and the real pair’s text is thicker.

These are the most common flaws on the best version of fake pairs. Other examples may have slightly different flaws or even the same ones as in the image above.

That’s why we always recommend coming back to these real vs fake Off-White AF1 Brooklyn images to have refernece for what a real pair should look like.

Finding it too hard? Reach out to our Nike x Off-White experts:

Step 2: Medial text appearance

When saying “medial text”, we’re referring to the text on the interior profile side of each shoe.

Both the left and right pairs of your Off-White Air Force 1 Brooklyns have the same inscription on each shoe, though their placement may differ from one pair to the other.

Left shoe – real vs fake comparison

That’s why we’re taking each shoe individually. Let’s begin with the left shoe, and then we’ll focus on the right shoe too.

Flaws on the fake pair:

  • TM text: Looks too thick on the fake pair, and it is also crooked. Real pairs must have thinner text which you can read without having to tilt your head.
  • NIKE text: Too thin on the fake pair, and thicker on the real Off-White Brooklyn Air Force 1.
  • FORCE text: The “AIR FORCE 1” hidden inscription may often look thinner on fake pairs — this is most visible on the letters “C” and “E”. Real pairs always have thicker text, as seen in the image above.

Always look out for these inscriptions. They’re the most fragile and easy to flaw on a fake pair of Off-White Brooklyn AF1.

Right shoe – real vs fake comparison

Let’s flip the Off-White Air Force 1 Brooklyn to the right shoe and see what the situation is like over there.

Flaws on the fake pair:

  • Off-White text: This inscription tends to look thinner on the fake right shoe. Real pairs have it thicker, as shown above.
  • Oregon print: This usually looks too thin, and you can see this on the fake example above too.
  • USA text: Sometimes harder to notice, these three letters look thinner than a real pair of Brooklyn Air Force 1s.

In this situation, spotting the fake Off-White Air Force 1 Brooklyn is a bit harder on the right shoe. Though, the left shoe still remains a great indicator for a real or fake OW AF1 Brooklyn pair.

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.

Step 3: Rear inscriptions

For the third step, we’re going to check out the classic Air Force 1 inscriptions: the “NIKE A I R” text on the back, alongside of the Nike Swoosh logo.

Even though this is an Off-White cllaboration, it is still an Air Force 1 pair that has the classic logos over there.

A simple flaw which you can notice on the back of these shoes is the “A I R” text being too thin or too little visible.

On the other hand, a real pair of Off-White Brooklyn Air Force 1s has the “A I R” text more proemoinent and noticeable underneath the fabric.

A real pair should always have this thick, bulged text that’s noticeable even though it’s meant to be hidden under the leather.

Step 4: Swoosh stitching

Just like any other Nike x Off-White Air Force 1 pair, the Brooklyns also have this deconstructed stitching.

This deconstructed stitching is the main idea behind the Nike x Off-White “THE TEN” collaboration.

Flaws on the fake pair:

  • Black stitching: The threads are too thick and visibly larger than on the real pair.
  • Logo colour: The fake Swoosh has a dark grey shade, while the real one is this metallic light grey.

See how the fake pair’s black stitching is too thick, especially on top of the lime-green tab. While the stitching is meant to be thicker over there, the fake pair’s stitching is excessively thick.

Aside from the lime tab, you can see how the bottom-right corner of the Swoosh also has its stitching thicker and bigger than the real pair’s.

Step 5: Toe box leather

Flipping the shoes to their profile sides, we now have to check out the leather on the toe box of the fake vs real Off-White Air Force 1 Brooklyn.

Notice how the fake pair’s leather isn’t bumpy. The real pair’s leather curves and has this bumpier look as soon as the midsole ends.

Authentic toe boxes must curve all the way up to the transition in the stitching.

Step 6: Text on the shoelaces

A classic Nike x Off-White sneaker detail is the “SHOELACES” inscription on the laces of every pair. The Brooklyn AF1 has lime green shoealces with this print on top of them.

The fake pair’s text is too thin, and you can see this on the first “E” and the letter “C”. The same letters look thicker on the real pair.

This may be a harder-to-spot flaw on the fake Off-White Air Force 1s, but it still remains an indicator for when you’re in doubt of the authenticity of a pair of shoelaces.
