Afraid of getting scammed? Tired of fakes? You are in the right place if you wish to know how to check the authenticity of the Off-White Nike Blazer OG sneakers from the “THE TEN” collection.
In fact, we are here today to teach you how to spot fake Off-White Blazer OG in just a few simple steps with our ultimate guide.
Also, we would like to mention that we are going to refer at the Off-White Nike Blazer OG sneakers to just OW Blazer OG.
Now that you’ve got the main idea of what we are about to talk about today, let’s get to the seven steps on how to spot fake Off-White x Nike Blazer OG.
We consider that the most reliable spot to look at when legit checking the Off-White Nike Blazer OG sneakers is the medial text on both the left and the right shoes.
Replica manufacturers don’t manage to get the print right, as they usually make their pairs having this medial text looking either too thick or sometimes too thin.
As for the first step of the real vs fake Off-White Blazer OG guide, we are going to quickly analyze the medial text because we consider it is one of the most reliable signs of a fake OW Blazer pair.
Let’s start with the medial text on the left shoe, and then the medial text on the left right too.
First of all, the “TM” text is deformed on the fake pair, and on the authentic pair, the print is more defined and the letters are well defined.
Besides, the word “Oregon” and the letter “D” in the word “MID” are too thick on the fake pair Blazers, and on the authentic pair, these elements are thinner.
Now let’s also proceed to the right shoe and let’s analyze together the flaws on the fake Blazer OG’s.
On the right shoe, first of all, we can easily notice how the “Off-White” text is placed too far from the suede area.
On the other hand, the legit Blazers have this text placed a lot closer to the left suede stitching area.
Then, the “TM” text is too thick on the fake Blazer OG’s, and the authentic “TM” print is thinner.
Moving a little lower, the “c. 1972” printed text is too big in height and it is too stretched out, making it look wider than the authentic “c. 1972” text.
Lastly for the medial text, the “USA” text is placed as it is too visible rather than the authentic Blazer OG sneakers which they don’t have the letter “S” visible. The fake shoes have the letter “S” too visible.
For the second step of the real vs fake OW Blazer OG legit check guide, we are going to quickly analyze the shoes for any blue panels
By blue panel,s we mean that the fake shoes usually have the transparent/white areas looking too much of a blue shade instead of being white.
For a better explanation, let’s have a look at the real vs fake Off-White Blazer comparison pictures below.
As you can see in this example above, the fake shoes have a shade that goes to blue rather than being pure white, and on the other hand, the legit shoes are white on the rear side.
Let’s have a look at an older comparison so that you can understand this step better.
Again, the blue panels flaw is visible in the pictures above too: the legit shoes are white on the side of them, and the replica Blazers are too icy blue.
As for the third step of the Off-White Blazer authentication process, let’s move on to the rear side of the sneakers and let’s have a quick look at the code stamp above the heels.
The most common flaw on the code stamps of the Off-White Blazer OG’s is that this code is placed too low below the leather area.
As you can see in the fake vs real OW Blazer OG pictures above, the authentic sneakers have the code stamp placed high inside the leather area as it isn’t visible at all.
Then, the fake Blazers have the code stamp fully visible and it isn’t placed as high as it has to be inside below the leather area above.
Now let’s move on a bit to the side of the Blazers and let’s have a look at the Nike Swoosh logo on your Blazers.
At the top tip of the Nike Swoosh logo on the side of the Blazers, you can notice how the counterfeit pair has a few extra threads hanging, when they shouldn’t be there.
On the other hand, the authentic Blazer OW pair doesn’t give any sign of extra threads.
Besides, you can easily notice how the fake Swoosh doesn’t have the top side of it as curvy and angled as the authentic one is.
Because we organized this guide in the order of the importance of every step, we now have to flip the Blazers to the rear side again, but this time we’ll go a bit higher from the code stamp.
The main problem with the fake Off-White Nike Blazer OG sneakers’ “NIKE” rear text is that the fake pair has this print looking a lot wider than it has to look, which makes it fatter and more massive than the needed authentic look.
Besides the dimensions of the rear “NIKE” text, you can easily see how the fake text less fit deep into the shoes.
Lastly, for the upper rear part, we have pointed out at the fact that the sponge around the patch with the “NIKE” text is looking less like a sponge and it is less textured than the sponge on the authentic Blazer OG’s.
Because we were still on the rear side of the Blazers, let’s also have a look at the real vs fake OW Blazer OG middle stitching.
Most of the time, the fake Blazers will have less attention paid to the stitching detail on the rear middle stitching.
As you can see in the case that we’ve linked images above for, the fake Blazers have the middle stitching side looking deeper than needed and also looking deformed and out of shape.
Now let’s move on a bit to the front side of the sneakers and let’s analyze the toe box site.
Let’s have a look at the real vs fake Blazer Off-White images and after that, we are going to tell the mistakes on the replica Blazers.
It is visible in the pictures above how the curving of the toe box on the fake Blazers is actually flat instead of being round, and on the authentic pair, the toe box is curvier than the fake one.
Along with the curviness of the toe box, you can notice how the counterfeit Off-White Blazers have the toe box looking too lifted up from the sole area, and how the authentic pair is exactly the opposite.
The authentic Blazers are a lot less curved on the bottom sole area than the fake shoes.
Moving to the laces of the Off-White sneakers, we, of course, have the “SHOELACES” print as the usual style from the “THE TEN” collection sneakers.
Most of the time, the “SHOELACES” print on the laces will be either too thin or too thick, and in this case, the print is too thin on the fake pair, and on the authentic pair, it is thicker.
This is why we recommend you to refer to our real vs fake Blazer Off-White comparison images in order for it to be easier when you legit check the Off-White Blazer OG sneakers.
Let’s move inside the sneakers and let’s analyze the size tag on both the real vs fake Off-White Blazer sneakers.
Most of the time, the fake Blazers will have the “QB” text on the top right corner looking too thick or too thin, and again, in this case, the “QB” text is too thin.
Then, the “MADE IN CHINA” text and the texts above and below it look too thin on the fake size tag, and the authentic size tag has these texts a lot thicker.
