Along with each step, you’ll find our real vs fake Chunky Dunky images in order to easily visualise and understand the flaws son the replica Dunks.
With this being said, let’s proceed to the proper fake vs real Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Dunky guide.
How you can tell if Chunky Dunky is fake
You can tell if Chunky Dunky is fake by checking the interior side of the tongue. Over there, you’ll always see misaligned letters on a fake pair of Chunky Dunky.
The quality of the replica Nike SB Chunky Dunky sneakers never compares to the quality of the authentic Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Dunky.
1. Interior tongue label
On the fake pair, the “®” symbol has its letter “R” in the circle looking too big and too thick compared to the letter met on the retail Chunky Dunky shoes.
Then, looking at the “MADE IN VIETNAM” and the “FABRIQUE EN VIETNAM” texts, you can see how the replica Chunky Dunky sneakers have their texts improperly font-weighted.
That’s because some of the letters are thinner than others, and some are thicker than others.
On the authentic Chunky Dunkys, you can notice how all of the letters have the same font-weight.
Besides, the fake Chunky Dunky shoes also have their text wavily positioned.
Most visible in the “FABRIQUE” text in the fake example above.
The authentic Chunky Dunky shoes must have their text perfectly placed, with no imperfections.
Expert's Opinion - Let us verify your Nikes:
2. Rear details
The replica Dunkys have their “NIKE” text looking too boxy and too thick compared to the one met on the authentic shoes.
The fake Chunky Dunkys have their text on the patch looking too big compared to the text on the authentic shoes.
The replica Chunky Dunkys have their stitches on the clouds in the middle of the shoes looking too thick compared to the authentic sneakers’ stitching.
The authentic sneakers have more space between the “NIKE” text and the edges of the patch, while the replica Dunkys have too little distance between them, making the text look too big.
3. Swoosh shape
The fake Swoosh looks too thin and too narrow on the rear side.
We are talking about the part of the Nike Swoosh logo which goes to the back of the sneakers, where the “NIKE” text patch is.
Authentic Chunky Dunkys have their Swoosh looking wider and a bit thicker than the fake shoes’ Swoosh.
The replica Dunks have their Swoosh opening too wide and too little curvy compared to the retail Swoosh.
The curving problem on the replica Nike SB Chunky Dunky shoes also makes the Swoosh look too small, which is visible at the top tip.
4. Exterior tongue label
The fake Dunks have their “SB” text improperly font-weighted.
The letter “S” is too thin, and the letter “B” is too thick.
On the other hand, the authentic Dunks have their “SB” text font-weighted at the same level for both of the letters.
The fake “Chunky Dunky” text is improperly positioned, as it is waving, while the authentic sneakers have their text placed correctly, on a straight line.

At the same time, all of the lines which say that the shoes were made in Vietnam appear to be too thick on the fake shoes, while on the legit shoes, all of the lines of text are thinner.
8. Swoosh stitching
The legit shoes have the same length and thickness for all of their stitches found all around the Nike Swoosh logo.
Fake shoes are commonly found to have their stitching on the Swoosh looking too thin and too long.
If you’re collecting Dunks, then you should know that this flaw sometimes occurs on the Travis Scott Dunks as well. Did you add them to your collection yet?
The footbed is the area between the insoles and the soles of the shoes, and you can access it by removing the insoles of your sneakers.
