Nike and Supreme reunited once again, and yet again, they dropped the notorious Nike SB Dunk Lows.

With a bit of Supreme’s touch, you can see a bunch of stars on the side panel of the Dunks that come into four colourways: black, blue, green, brown.

If you are looking for a hype pair to skate or to walk in, then these might be a good option for you, as Supreme’s trademark really gives a boost to the hype that the Nike Dunks already have.

This guide will tell you everything you need to known whether you are looking at a pair of real vs fake Supreme Star Dunks, as we’ve compiled all of the information in the next 9 steps on how to legit check these.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Nike x Supreme Star Dunks is to look at the size tag inside each shoe, as well as to look at the details on the back of the shoes. The replica Supreme Star Dunks never have their inscriptions and the stitches (on the back) differently font-weighted from the genuine pairs, and the authentic items must have their text at the same thickness, with no imperfection.

How to spot fake Nike x Supreme Star Dunks

Step 1: Fake vs real Nike Supreme Dunk Stars size tag

The first step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x Supreme Star Dunks, we are going to have a look at their size tags.

We’ve said it before, but it’s worth saying again – we consider the size tag as the best way to spot fake Supreme Dunks, so we recommend that you always check this label.

The picture with the real vs fake Supreme Dunks above shows you three spots that occur on every best replica Supreme Dunks.

The first flaw is about the style-code’s text, which is in the top-right corner of the label. The style-code is going to differ from a colourway to another, so don’t mind if your numbers don’t match as in the real vs fake Supreme Dunk image above.

The replica Supreme Dunks have their style-code’s text looking too thin, and this can be spotted if you look at the number “2”, especially at the bottom.

Looking at the genuine Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Lows, you can see how their style-code’s text looks thicker and more defined, as all of the characters are bulkier than those on the replica pair.

Going a little bit lower, you can observe how the “UPC” text and the numbers (which are unique for each pair) on the replica Supreme Dunks look yet again a tad bit thinner than the ones seen on the authentic shoes, and speaking of which, the authentic shoes have their text thicker once again.

In the bottom left corner of the size tag, you can see how the “MADE IN VIETNAM” block of text looks… Yet again, too thin. This applies to every language in which the text was written on the fake pair’s size tag above.

The genuine Nike x Supreme Star Dunks have their “MADE IN VIETNAM” lines of text looking thicker and bolder than the replica pair’s text.

Step 2: Verify your Nike Star Dunks the rear side’s text and stitching

For the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x Supreme Star Dunks, we are going to have a look at the shoes for their details on the rear side.

More precise, as the heading said, we will check out the “NIKE” text and the stitching lines that are placed all over the shoes. So as to do that, let’s have a look at the real vs fake Supreme Dunk image below.

supreme star dunk fake vs real guide

In the picture with the real vs fake Supreme Dunks above, we have pointed out a few flaws on the fake shoes.

Starting with the beginning, the “NIKE” yellow text on the blue patch looks too thin and too slim, while the authentic Supreme SBs have their same inscription looking thicker and way wider than the fake pair’s.

Then, as for the three stitching lines placed in the middle side of the shoes (white leather patch), you can see how the fake shoes have their threads too thin and too long.

Back to the authentic Nike x Supreme SB Dunks, the authentic shoes have their same three lines of stitching looking thicker, smaller and generally bulkier than the fake pair’s stitches.

The last stitching flaw spotted on the rear side of the shoes is about the curvy double-stitching that curves all around the white leather patch.

The fake Supreme Dunk’s double-stitching looks too thick and too short, while the same double-stitching on the legit Dunks appears to be thinner and longer than the fake pair’s.

Step 3: Examine the toe box and the overall look of your Supreme Dunks form the profile side

Going to the third method on how to see real vs fake Supreme Star SB Dunks, we are going to have a look at their toe boxes, and generally to their overall build.

So as to do that, we have to flip the fake vs real Supreme Dunks to their profile sides, in order to fully see the two pairs.

In the image with the authentic vs fake Supreme Dunk Stars above, we have pointed out how the look of the toe box is wrong.

In fact, the replica shoes have their toe box too thin, while the authentic shoes have their toe box thicker and inflated more than the fake pair’s toe box.

Generally, the Nike Dunk line has a thicker look, especially on the toe box, and this is kind of a signature for the Dunks – they are bulky shoes.

Looking at the fake pair’s toe box, you can see how this looks is pretty much missing, as the toe box is way thinner than what it should be.

Now, generally looking at the fake pair’s black panels, you can see how they are not pumped and inflated as much as the authentic pair’s, as the genuine pair looks thicker and more massive when put side-by-side with the fake pair.

Step 4: Supreme Dunk real vs fake exterior tongue stitching

Moving forward to the fourth method on how to spot fake Supreme Dunks, we are going to zoom in to the upper side of teh shoes, at the tongue.

Let’s have a quick look at the stitching on the tongue, as well as at the stitching on the tongue’s badges on the fake vs real Supreme Star Dunks.

supreme dunk fake vs real

In the picture with the fake vs real Supreme Dunks above, we have pointed out how the fake pair’s stitching is badly detailed.

First of all, looking at the stitching at the very top of the badge, you can see how the fake pair’s stitching looks too thin, while the threads on the genuine shoes are thicker.

Then, as for the stitches at the bottom side of the tongue’s badge that says “NIKE”, the replica pair’s stitches are also too thin, and the genuine shoes have their threads thicker.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways on how to authenticate this item.

The tells listed below this point are still reliable signs of authenticity, but for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the top tells we’ve explained above this point to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

Step 5: Check the stitching on the Nike Swoosh logo of your shoes

As for the fifth way on how to spot real vs fake Nike Supreme Dunks, we are going to have a look at the shoes’ Nike Swoosh logos.

More exact, we will have a quick look at the fake vs real Supreme Dunks for their stitching on the Nike Swoosh logos.

In the image with the real vs fake Supreme Dunks above, we have pointed out how the replica Supreme Dunks have their threads on the logo at the wrong stitching density.

In fact, the replica shoes seem to have too little stitches, and the threads that are actually on the Nike Swoosh logo are too thin and too long, hence the wrong density.

On the other hand, the authentic Star Supreme Dunks have many more stitches, and the stitches are also smaller and thicker than the ones on the fake shoes.

Step 6: Inspect the “WORLD FAMOUS” text on the aglets of your Supreme Dunks

Proceeding to the sixth step of the guide on how to LC Supreme Dunks, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Supreme Dunks for their “WORLD” and the “FAMOUS” inscriptions on the aglets.

As always, let’s quickly have a look at the real vs fake Supreme Star Dunk comparison image below, in order to see the differences between the two pairs.

how to spot fake supreme dunks

In the image with the real vs fake Supreme Star Dunks above, we have pointed out how the fake Supreme Dunks have their text on the aglets at the wrong thickness.

In fact, the replica Supreme Star Dunks have their “WORLD” and the “FAMOUS” text at the wrong thickness and improperly kerned.

By that, we mean that the replica Supreme Dunks have their “WORLD” and the “FAMOUS” inscriptions too thin, and with too much space in-between the characters.

On the other hand, the authentic shoes have their text thicker and the letters are placed closer to each other, unlike the fake Supreme shoes that have their letters badly detailed.

Step 7: Analyze the interior tongue’s label with multiple lines of text

For the seventh method on how to spot fake Supreme Dunks, we are going to get inside the shoes, and we’ll check out the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text.

Usually, we rank the interior tongue label as the best legit check factor, but for these Dunks, the text isn’t that visible, hence we cannot properly analyze it as on a pair of Air Jordan 1s, whether the text is usually more legible.

real vs fake supreme star dunk

In the image with teh real vs fake Supreme dunks above, you can notice how the replica pair’s tongue label has its chracters too glossy.

In fact, the replica pari’s characters shine too much when put side-by-side with the authentic pair’s characters, which are less shiny.

Not only that, but the fake Star Supreme Dunks have their text looking too big and too thick, and the authentic shoes have their text smaller and thinner.

Step 8: Brief the accessory Supreme World Famous keyring

As for the eighth step of the guide on how to spot fake Supreme Star Dunks, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Supreme Dunks for their keyrings that say “WORLD FAMOUS.” in the Nike classic font.

In the image with the authentic vs replica Supreme Dunk Star shoes above, you can see how the fake pair’s “Supreme” text in the box logo is a bit too thin, while the authentic shoes have their text thicker.

Besides, the same flaw applies to the “NIKE” inscription that’s on the lower side of the label, where the fake shoes have their text too thin, and the authentic shoes have their text thicker.

Step 9: Verify the Supreme metal plates at the bottom of the laces on your Star Nike SB Dunks

Going to the ninth and the last method on how to spot fake Nike x Supreme SB Dunk Low Star sneakers, we are going to have a look at the fake vs real Star Dunks for their “SUPREME” text written on the metals at the bottom of the shoelaces.

supreme star dunk real vs fake

In the image with the fake vs real Supreme Star Dunks above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their “SUPREME” text shining too much when put into light, as it reflects more light than what it should.

Looking at the genuine shoes, you can see how their “SUPREME” text is less shiny than the one seen on the fake pair.
