If you are here to learn how to spot fake Off-White Air Max 90 Black sneakers, you are in the right place.

We have prepared this guide on how to check the real vs fake Off-White Air Max 90 Black sneakers with just ten simple spots to look at for it to be easier when you authenticate these sneakers.

It is worth mentioning that we are going to refer to the Off-White x Nike Air Max 90 Black sneakers in the simple form of OW AM90 Black sneakers.

Now that you know what we’re talking about, let’s get you to the proper real vs fake Off-White Air Max 90 sneakers.

How to spot fake Off-White Air Max 90 sneakers

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 Max 90 pair since replica Off-White manufacturers never manage to get this text right.

Step 1: Check the medial text on your OW AM 90 Black sneakers

As we said previously, we consider the medial text being one of the most reliable signs of a fake OW Air Max 90 Black pair of sneakers.

  • The left shoe
Legit Check Off-White

Now that you took a look at the real vs fake Off-White Air Max 90 pictures, let us explain to you the flaws on the counterfeit shoes.

First of all, on the counterfeit pair, the “TM” text is looking a little too big, while on the other hand, the legit OW AM90 Black pair has this text looking smaller.

Going a bit to the right of the “TM”, we have, of course, the “NIKE” text.

Mainly, the fake Off-White Air Max 90 black sneakers have the “NIKE” text looking too stretched out and tall, and the legit text is more squared and smaller than the fake one.

Moving lower to the medial text on the left shoe, we’re going to talk about the “c. 1990” text. Basically, the fake pairs have the “c” looking like a capital “C”, instead of the authentic small key “c”.

Then, the “1990” text looks too stretched out too, and its dimensions are bigger in height and width than the ones on the legit OW AM90 pair.

Also, you can easily notice how the fake “USA” text on the Swoosh appears to be too thick on the fake pair, and on the authentic pair, it looks thinner.

  • The right shoe

Because you now know how to legit check the left shoe OW AM90 black medial text, it is the time for you to learn how to differentiate the fake vs real OW AM90 black medial text on the right shoe too.

fake vs real off-white air max 90

As you can see, we’ve spotted four main flaws on the replica Off-White Air Max 90’s.

First, you’ll easily notice how, again, the fake pair has the “TM” text looking too big and too thick.

The thickness problem can be the most visible if you look at the letter “M”, in our case.

With this being said, we’d like to mention that the flaws on the fake OW AM90 pairs may differ from a replica version to another.

Back to our case, you can notice how the word “NIKE” has the letter “K” deformed at the bottom of it.

If you look closely, you can notice how the letter “K” has the bottom legs looking thicker than the usual authentic OW AM90 pairs.

Lastly for this step, you’ll easily notice how the fake pair has the duct tape line looking too thin and small, and that the authentic one is larger.

Then, the fake OW AM90 pairs have the “USA” text too stretched out on the fake pair. With that, we mean that the fake “USA” print looks too tall.

Also, the placing of the medial text may differ from a pair to another, but in this replica example, you can notice how the “c. 1990” gives no sign of presence.

Step 2: Inspect the stitching on your OW Air Max 90

Now that you know how to check both sides of the medial text on the Off-White Air Max 90 black sneakers, let’s also get you to know how to legit check the stitching on these shoes.

Fake Vs Real Air Max 90 Off-White

The main flaw with the stitching on the Off-White Air Max 90 Black sneakers is that these stitches on the side of the shoe, above the Nike Swoosh logo, are coloured light-grey, and the legit stitches are dark-grey/black.

Step 3: Analyze the midsole on the Off-White Air Max 90 Black

As for the third step of the real vs fake Off-White Air Max 90 Black comparison guide, we’ve prepared the midsole details. Let’s see the fake vs real OW AM90 Black pictures and tell the flaws on the fake pairs.

Legit Check off-white shoes

As you can see in the real vs fake Off-White Air Max 90 Black pictures above, the main problem with the fake pair is that the holes in the midsole are too big and too wide.

The authentic Off-White Air Max 90 Black pair has the holes in its midsole looking a lot narrow and smaller.

Step 4: Verify the orange tab on the OW AM90

Now, let’s go a bit higher above the midsole, and analyze the orange tab on the OW AM90 Black.

It is visible in the fake vs real Off-White Air Max 90 Black pictures above how, on the fake pair, the orange ab is smaller in height.

Besides the dimensions of the orange tab, you can notice how the fake Off-White Air Max 90 Black sneakers have the orange tab with a curvy corner (on the top left side), and the authentic orange tab has sharp corners.

Step 5: Authenticate the Swoosh of the Air Max 90 Black

Let’s also move on to the Nike Swoosh logo on the side of the Off-White Air Max 90 Black sneakers, and let’s analyze the flaws on the fake OW AM90 pair.

Fake Vs Real Off-White Shoes

As you can see, we’ve got the two hand emoji pointers, showing us that there are two general Swoosh flaws on the replica Off-White Air Max 90 Black sneakers.

In fact, the fake Off-White Air Max 90 Black sneakers have the top of the Swoosh with a lot more material than the authentic pair, which makes the fake shoes have the Swoosh too thick at the top tip of it.

Then, the fake Swoosh is too curved ad the bottom left side of it, and the legit OW AM90 pair has its Swoosh curved less out of a sudden.

Step 6: Check the insole of the Off-White Air Max 90 Black shoes

For the sixth step of the real vs fake Off-White Air Max 90 Black sneakers authentication process, let’s go inside the shoes and analyze the insole.

Real Vs Fake Off-White Air Max 90

The differences between the real vs fake Off-White Air Max 90 Black sneakers are visible just by looking at the pictures above.

Basically, the fake pair has the “THE TEN” text looking crooked. This is visible by looking at the letter “E” in the word “THE”. On the other hand, the legit “THE TEN” text has the letters positioned on the same trajectory.

Besides the positioning of the shoes, you can notice how the fake “THE TEN” text looks too thick on the fake pair, and then, on the authentic pair, this text is looking a lot thinner.

The last spot on the insoles indicates the “X” Off-White logo print below the text. Generally, the fake OW AM90 Black pairs have the “X” logo looking too big and thick, and the authentic ones are just the opposite.

Step 7: Inspect the size tag of the Off-White Air Max 90 sneakers

Because we left off inside the OW AM 90 black sneakers, let’s also analyze the fake vs real OW Air Max 90 Black size tags.

fake vs real off white shoes

You can easily notice how the fake “SZ” text is placed too close to the right edge of the size tag, and how the authentic “SZ” text is placed more to the left side.

Then, the top Swoosh on the middle of the size tag doesn’t really look rounded on the fake pair, and again, it curves too much out of a sudden. The legit Swoosh has the perfect curvy shape.
