You are in the right place if you wish to know how to see the fake vs real Off-White Nike Air Force 1 Volt sneakers.
In fact, we are here today to teach you how to spot fake Nike Air Force 1 Volt Green x Off-White sneakers in seven simple steps with our ultimate guide.
Also, we would like to mention that we are going to refer at the Nike Air Force 1 Volt Green x Off-White sneakers to just OW AF1 Volt.
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 Air Force 1 Volt.
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 Force 1 Volt pair since replica Off-White manufacturers never manage to get this text right.
As we said previously, we consider the medial text being one of the most reliable signs of a fake OW AF1 Volt Green pair of sneakers.
We are going to analyze both the left and the right shoes and the text on these, but first, we are going to start with the left shoe.
As you can see, we’ve spotted a few mistakes on the fake Off-White Air Force 1 Volt sneakers.
First of all, the authentic OW AF1 Volt has the text “c.” with a capital “C” letter, and on the fake OW AF1 Volt pair, the letter “C” is a small capital letter.
Then, the letter “B” in the word “Beavertown” looks thinner than the authentic letter “B”.
The “TM” printed text is placed too far from the “Off-White” text on the fake pair, and on the authentic Off-White Air Force 1 Volt Green pair, the “TM” text is closer to the “Off-White” text.
Going to the “USA” text, the authentic pair has the letter “U” covered by the Swoosh, and on the fake OW AF1 Volt pair, not only the “U” is covered, but even the “S” is almost fully covered by the Swoosh.
Now, it is time to move on to the right shoe. Let’s see the fake vs real Off-White Air Force 1 Volt comparison pictures and analyze the flaws on the fake pair together:
Again, we have found a couple of flaws on the fake OW AF1 Volt pair.
First of all, the letter “O” in the word “Off” is too thin, and the one on the authentic pair, it is thicker.
Then, the “TM” text is too big on the fake pair, and on the authentic OW AF1 Volt, the “TM” text is thinner.
The word “NIKE” is not even visible because it is almost fully covered by the Nike Swoosh logo, and on the authentic pair, the word “NIKE” can be covered by the Swoosh, but just a little, and not that much as in this example above.
Also, the “USA” text is a lot thinner on the fake OW AF1 Volt pair, while the legit pair has the “USA” text thicker.
The “c. 1982” text is too big on the fake pair, and on the legit OW AF1 Volt pair, this text is smaller. Also, the fake pair has the “1982” text looking thicker than it should be.
Now that you know how to check the medial text on your Off-White Air Force 1 Volt sneakers, let’s also get you to know how to authenticate the Swoosh.
We will start with the form of the Swoosh, then with the size of the Swoosh logo.
The real OW AF1 Volt has its stitching that comes from the Swoosh making contact with the two parallel lines of stitching on the shoe.
On the other hand, the fake OW AF1 Volt pairs miss this detail on the sneakers, and the stitching from the Swoosh does not make contact with these two little parallel lines of stitching.
Now it is the time to analyze the tip of the real vs fake OW AF1 Volt tip of the Swoosh.
As you can see in the pictures above, the fake OW AF1 Volt has the tip of the Swoosh looking thicker than the authentic one. The authentic tip of the Swoosh is thinner.
Now, let’s go to the midsole of the OW AF1 Volt sneakers and let’s analyze the “AIR” text together, on both the fake vs real OW AF1 Volt pairs.
As you can see in the pictures above, the legit OW Air Force 1 Volt Green has its “AIR” text placed higher than the one on the fake OW AF1 Volt pair.
To see this better, analyze the distance from the line below the “AIR” text to the “AIR” text itself.
For the fourth step of the real vs fake OW AF1 Volt legit check guide, you’ll have to flip your sneakers to the rear heel side of them and analyze the code stamp.
There are two major mistakes that we’ve spotted on the fake Off-White Air Force 1 Volt Green pair.
In fact, the fake Off-White Air Force 1 Volt has the letter “O” the same size with the rest of the “HO-18” print, and the legit pair has the letter “O” smaller than the rest of the print.
Going to the second line of the rear heel code stamp print, the hashtags (#) are too thick on the fake pair, and on the legit pair, the hashtags are thinner.
On the second hashtag, you can see how on the top left corner, there is an extra little part of paint.
Now, let’s go a bit above the Swoosh on the side of the sneakers, and let’s analyze the orange tab of your Off-White Air Force 1 Volt shoes.
It is really easy to notice how the fake Off-White Air Force 1 Volt pair has its orange tab looking smaller in its dimensions.
Along with the size of the orange tab, you can notice how the black stitching on the Swoosh, and at the same time, the one that’s above and over the orange tab, are looking too shreddy, and the authentic stitches are sharp.
It is the time in which we have to go inside the sneakers, and analyze the simple insoles on both the real vs fake OW AF1 Black sneakers.
The fake OW Air Force 1 Volt pair has its “THE TEN” text looking crooked and uneven, while the legit “THE TEN” text is sharp.
Because we left off inside the sneakers, let’s also analyze the little size tag inside the OW AF1 Black shoes.
The main flaw on the fake Off-White Air Force 1 Volt size tag is that the “MADE IN CHINA” text is too thin.
Besides the “MADE IN CHINA” text, the fake “SZ” text on the top right corner of the size tag is placed too much too far away from the right edge of the size tag. The legit “SZ” text is placed closer to the right edge of the size tag.
