Now that you know what we’re talking about, let’s get you to the proper real vs fake Off-White Air Max 90 sneakers.

How to spot fake Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore sneakers

First of all, we’d like to mention that we consider the medial text on both the left and the right shoes being the most reliable spot in order to check the authenticity of an Off-White Air Max 90 pair since replica Off-White manufacturers never manage to get this text right.

Step 1: Check the medial text on your Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore

As we said previously, we consider the medial text being one of the most reliable signs of a fake OW Air Max 90 Black pair of sneakers.

  • The left shoe

First of all, the “TM” text is too big on the counterfeit Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore pair, and on the authentic pair, it is smaller and thinner.

Then, the replica Off-White AM90 Desert Ore pair has its quotation marks looking smaller than the legit ones.

Lastly, for the left shoe, you’ll easily notice how, on the fake pair, the “USA” text is looking a lot thicker than the one on the authentic pair.

  • The right shoe

Because you now know how to legit check the left shoe OW AM90 Desert Ore medial text, it is the time for you to learn how to differentiate the fake vs real OW AM90 Desert Ore medial text on the right shoe too.

First, on the fake right shoe, you can notice how the “Off-White” text is looking a bit off, meaning that the paint is kind of scratched, while the authentic text is fully visible.

Then, the “TM” text is on, again, too big on the fake Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore pair.

Going a bit lower, you can notice how the fake pair has the “c. 1980” text looking thicker than the legit print, especially on the letter “c”.

Lastly on the medial text, the “USA” text is placed too high on the fake sneakers, and the legit “USA” text is placed lower.

Step 2: Inspect the Nike Swoosh logo on your sneakers

As for the second step of our real vs fake Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore legit check guide, we’ve prepared the Nike Swoosh logo on the side of your sneakers.

As you can see in the pictures above, on the rear side of the Swoosh, the counterfeit pair has its Swoosh looking too curved, and the authentic Swoosh is sharper and less curved.

Then, at the top tip of the Swoosh, the legit pair is thinner than the fake OW AM90 Desert Ore pair.

Step 3: Verify the blue tab on your OW Air Max 90 Desert Ore

Going a little bit above the Swoosh, you’ll notice the blue tab. Let’s analyze this little tab on both the real vs fake OW AM 90 Desert Ore sneakers.

It is visible in the pictures above how the fake blue tab is longer than the one on the authentic OW Air Max 90 Desert Ore.

Meanwhile, the legit blue tab is smaller in height, but larger in width.

Step 4: Check the stitching on your OW AM90 Desert Ore sneakers

Moving a bit above the Swoosh and the blue tab, we’ll have to quickly analyze the stitches on this side.

As you can see, the authentic Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore has the waffle-typed stitching on this area looking lighter than the one on the fake pair.

The fake OW Air Max 90 Desert Ore has these stitching looking dark grey, and the legit pair has these stitches coloured light grey.

Also, it is really noticeable how on the fake pair, these stitches are really thick, while the ones on the legit pair are thinner.

Step 5: Look at the midsole of your OW Air Max 90 Desert Ore

As for the fifth step of this real vs fake Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore legit check guide, we’ll have a look at the midsole holes.

The main problem on the counterfeit Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore is that the holes in the midsole are too small, but they are also less wide, as they are less arched.

This flaw is really visible if you take a look at the highlighted placed with the hand emojis.

Step 6: Authenticate the code stamp on the rear heel side of your sneakers

Now, you will have to flip your sneakers to their rear heel side and analyze the code stamp in there.

We have pointed out at the fact that on the fake pair, the hashtag (#) element is looking thicker than the one on the authentic pair.

The same story applies to the “747” text too. The fake pair has this printed text looking too thick, and the authentic Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore has this text thinner.

Step 7: Verify the insole of your Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore

It is the time of the legit check guide in which we have to go inside the sneakers and analyze the insole of these.

Basically, the fake Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore pairs have the “THE TEN” text looking too thin and misplaced, as it isn’t centered into the middle of the black rectangle.

Meanwhile, the authentic OW AM90 Desert Ore pair is completely the opposite of this.

Then, the same thing applies to the “X” Off-White logo too, and this is visible with the naked eye.

Step 8: Check the size tag of your Off-White Air Max 90 Desert Ore sneakers

Because we left off inside the OW AM 90 Desert Ore sneakers, let’s also analyze the fake vs real OW Air Max 90 Desert Ore size tags.
