Don’t even question it, as you are in the very best place. Here, you are going to easily learn how to spot fake Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes, with the help of this guide.

This guide will teach you the seven best spots to look at in order to determine whether you are looking at a fake vs real Suptempo pair.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Nike Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes is to look at the size tag on the side of the left and the right shoe, because the genuine shoes always have their inscriptions the same, while the replica pairs always have their text at the wrong thickness.

Yes, this real vs fake Supreme Air More Uptempo guid applies to all of the colourways of the Nike x Supreme Air More Uptempo sneakers.

How to spot fake Nike Supreme Air More Uptempo

Step 1: Fake vs real Nike Air More Uptempo Supreme size tag

For the first step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes, we are going to move on the interior side of the shoes, and we’ll check out the size tag.

Once again, we’d like to say that the size tag is absolutely the best method to check in order to spot fake Nike x Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes.

So, first of all, let’s have a look at the image with the real vs fake Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes below, and after that, we’ll explain the flaws on the fake Suptempo pair’s size tag.

As you can see, there are three flaws that we’ve spotted being visibly different on the real vs fake Suptempo sneakers.

Starting with the style-code’s text, which is in the middle side of the shoes (the numbers with the dash in-between), you can see how the fake pair has its text very thick.

In fact, the fake Suptempo pair has its text too thick when compared to the authentic Air More Uptempo Supreme pair’s style-code inscription.

On the right side of the style-code’s text, we have the date of manufacturing the shoes’ text, which on the fake pair’s text, it is “12/23/16”, and on the authentic pair, it is “11/14/16”

The replica Supreme Air More Uptempo pair has the date of manufacturing the shoes’ text looking once again too thick when compared to the authentic pair’s text, which his thinner.

Lastly, we have spotted how the fake pair has the two lines of text that indicate the country where the shoes were manufactured in, which is Vietnam.

The fake pair has both the “MADE IN VIETNAM” and the “FABRIQUE EN VIETNAM” inscriptions looking a little bit too thick, while the authentic Suptempo pair has its lines of text thinner.

Step 2: Verify the prints on the insole of your Air More Uptempo x Supreme sneakers

Going to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes, we are going to remain inside the shoes, but we are going to check the insole’s print now.

The insole basically says “Supreme x NIKE® A I R”, and the replica pair has these inscriptions at the wrong thickness.

But in order to check this, let’s have a quick look at the image that highlights the real vs fake Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes below.

fake vs real supreme air more uptempo

In the image with the authentic vs replica Supreme Uptempos above, we have pointed out how the fake pair’s text is too thin on almost every inscription.

In fact, the fake pair has the “Supreme” text box logo at the top looking too thick, too boxy, and with the letters placed too close to each other.

On the other hand, looking at the genuine Suptempo sneakers’ “Supreme” text, you can see how their letters are thinner, wider, and with more space in-between, unlike the fake pair’s text.

The letter “x” below the “Supreme” text stands for the fact that these shoes are a collaboration, and you can see how the replica pair’s letter “x” is too thin and too small.

The same symbol “x” on the authentic Suptempo pair’s insole looks thicker, bigger, and generally more defined than the fake pair’s letter.

Lastly, checking out the “A I R” text, you can observe how the fake Suptempos have their letters also being too thick, small and boxy, while the authentic shoes have their “A I R” text thinner, bigger and wider.

Step 3: Inspect the rear details on your Nike Suptempos

For the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x Supreme Uptempos, we are going to flip the shoes to the back, and we are going to check their details on the rear side.

The things which we are going to look for are the placement of the little Nike Swoosh logo at the top of the shoes, for the stitching on the letter “R”, and for the holes at the bottom of the shoes.

And, as always, let’s have a look at the fake vs real Nike Air Uptempo x Supreme shoes in the image from below.

Initiating with the placement of the little Nike Swoosh logo at the top of the shoes, you can see how the replica Suptempo pair has its logo placed too far away from the letter “R”.

You can observe this flaw becauase there is too much space in-between the Nike Swoosh logo and the letter “R” that stands for the word “SUPREME” – word that’s stitched into the all of the sides of the shoes.

Then, looking at the letter “R”, you can first of all observe how its overall shape is too narrow and small when compared to the letter “R” on the genuine shoes, which is bigger and wider than the fake pair’s letter.

Zooming in a little bit onto the letter “R”, you can also notice how the fake pair has a few stitches that are fit too deep on the middle side, where we’ve placed the hand-emoji pointer, as the stitching job looks too thick.

On the other hand, the authentic Nike Air More Uptempo Supreme shoes have their stitching on the letter “R” at the same depth and thickness on all sides, as the stitching job looks more defined on the legitimate pair.

Now, moving to the bottom side of the shoes, you can observe how the replica Nike x Supreme Air More Uptempo sneakers have their holes improperly shaped.

In fact, the fake pair has its holes too tall, but too narrow, and they look they are stretched out when put side-by-side with the legit pair’s holes.

The authentic Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes have their holes more flatten, as they are boxier and less stretched out, unlike the fake pair’s holes that are too wide.

Step 4: Check the SUPREME text on all sides of the your Nike Air More Uptempo shoes

For the fourth step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes, we are going to look at the “SUP” side of the shoes, which is the exterior profile side.

So as to analyze the details on the letters, let’s have a look at the real vs fake Supreme Air More Uptempo image from below, and after that, we’ll explain the flaw on the fake pair.

In the image with the real vs fake Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes above, we have pointed out how the replica pair has its letters “SUP” badly stitched into the shoes.

That is because the fake pair’s stitches are thicker than the ones on the authentic shoes, and even more, the fake pair has extra hanging threads.

Calling these “extra hanging threads” would actually be a lot, as the actual flaw on the fake shoes is that the stitches just come out of the shoes a bit too much, thus leaving this “extra hanging thread” effect.

Looking at the authentic Suptempo pair’s text, you can observe how the “SUP” text has its stitches properly fit inside the shoes, as there are no stitches that come out of the shoes, unlike the fake pair’s threads.

If that wasn’t so clear, we’ve got you covered, as below we have highlighted the same real vs fake Nike Suptempo image from above, but with more of zooming-in.

As you can see in the same authentic vs fake Supreme Air More Uptempo image above, we have pointed out the same flaws as previously.

Concrete, the fake pair has its Supreme Air More Uptempo pair has its letters in the “SUP” text looking too thick and also coming out of the shoes, while the authentic shoes have their stitches thinner, and properly fit deep inside the leather in the “SUP” text.

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

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

Step 5: Inspect the little Nike Swoosh logo on the midsole of your Supreme Uptempos

Going to the fifth method on how to spot fake Nike x Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes, we are going to stay on the side of the shoes, but going to the rearer side of the shoes, we have the little Nike Swoosh logo.

In the image with the legit vs fake Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes above, we have noticed how the fake pair has its paint improperly defined on the Swoosh.

If you look at the rearer side of the red Nike Swoosh logo, you can see how the fake pair has some missing paint spots, as white spots can. be visible within the place of where the red paint should be.

Looking at the legit shoes’ small Nike Swoosh logo, you can see how their logo is properly filled in with colour, as only white spots can be visible within the authentic pair’s small white Nike Swoosh logo.

Step 6: Look at the toe box of your Nike Air More Uptempo

Proceeding to the sixth method on how to spot fake Nike air More Uptempo shoes, we are going to look at the toe box of the real vs fake Uptempo Supreme sneakers.

In the image with the real vs fake Supreme Air More Uptempo sneakers above, we’ve shown you how the fake pair has its toe box too bulky, and thus, too little curvy.

On the other hand, you can see how the authentic Supreme Uptempo shoes have their toe box thinner and curvier than the fake pair’s toe box.

At the same time, another critical flaw you can see on the fake shoes is that they have glue stains on the little Nike Swoosh logo on the midsole, while the authentic shoes have no such flaw.

Step 7: Examine the Nike Swoosh logo on the toe box of the shoes

Lastly, for the seventh step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x Supreme Air More Uptempo sneakers, we are going to have a look at the big Nike Swoosh logo placed on the toe box of the shoes.

In order to check this logo, we’ll check the real vs fake Supreme Air More Uptempos from a top-down view angle.

In the image with the real vs fake Supreme Air More Uptempo shoes have their logo looking bulkier and thicker than the legit pair’s logo.

In fact, looking at the genuine Supreme Uptempo shoes, you can see how their logo is thinner and slimmer than the fake pair’s Nike Swoosh logo.

Since the fake pair’s logo is too thick, it is also placed too close to the edges of the patch on the toe box of the shoes, while since the authentic shoes have their logo smaller, it is placed a bit further away from the patch.
