Whether you are a sneakerhead or not, you want to ensure that when buying theOff-White Air Presto, you know whether you are looking at an authentic or a fake Off-White Air Presto OG pair.

That is why we have created this Ultimate Guide to the Fake vs Real Off-White Air Presto Comparison embedded with images that will help you identify and differentiate a fake sneaker from the authentic ones.

This 12-step legit check guide will show you the best ways you can spot a replica of the Off-White Air Presto.

How to spot fake Off-White Air Presto OG

As you have seen in the table of contents above, there are a lot of ways that we’ve pointed out in this guide on how to spot the fake vs real OG Presto Off-White, but before saying all of them.

We would like to mention the fact that the #1 thing you should look at when legit checking them OW Presto OG is the medial text on both the left and the right shoes.

Step 1: Verify the medial text on your Off-White Prestos

As we said previously, we consider the medial text to be the best spot to look at in order to spot fake Off-White Air Presto OG sneakers because it is every time flawed by the replica Off-White x Nike manufacturers.

Medial text on the left shoe

Let’s have a look at the left shoe’s medial text, and then at the right shoe’s text.

real vs fake Off-White Air

Now that you took a look at the real vs fake Off-White Presto reference images, let us explain the flaws on the fake Prestos.

First of all, you can easily notice how the fake Off-White Presto pair has its medial text placed too much to the left side of the sneakers, as it is placed too close to the sockliner.

On the other hand, the authentic Off-White Presto OG shoes have their medial text placed more to the right side, further away from the sockliner, rather than the fake pairs which are exactly the opposite.

The right shoe’s medial text

Now that you know how to legit check OW Presto OG sneakers by inspecting the left shoe’s medial text, let us get you to know how to see fake OW Presto sneakers by looking at the right shoe’s medial text too.

In the fake vs real OW Presto OG sneakers image above, we have pointed out how on the fake sneakers, the medial text is a lot less visible than it has to be on the legit Prestos.

It is true that the medial text has to be less visible than what most of the people would think it has to be, and it isn’t really legible on the authentic Prestos either, but on the fake ones, it is a lot less visible than it has to be on the legit sneakers.

Also, the same flaws from the left shoe’s medial text apply as well to the right shoe: the fake shoes have their text placed too close to the sockliner, while the legit shoes have their text placed further away from the sockliner.

Step 2: Check the “AIR” text on the side of the sneakers

As for the second step of the real vs fake Off-White Presto OG legit check guide, we are going to cover the looking of the “AIR” text on both of the authentic vs replica OW Presto shoes.

legit check ow presto og

In the fake vs real Off-White Air Presto OG image above, we have pointed out the flaws in the lettering of the fake pair’s “AIR” print.

The counterfeit Off-White Air Presto’s “AIR” text has a flaw in the letter “R”, at the bottom right leg, where we have placed the hand-emoji pointer.

The flaw is that at the bottom right leg of the letter “R”, the fake sneakers have a round and wavy line, while the legit sneakers have their “R” letter finishing straight and sharp at the bottom of it.

Step 3: Analyze the toe box of your Off-White Air Presto OG sneakers

Moving to the front side of the Off-White Prestos, we are going to quickly inspect the way that the toe box looks like.

Just as a heads up, most of the time, the fake shoes will have a curvier and lifted up toe box.

The toe box is where the toes fit in. As shown in the picture below, you will notice that the toe box is significantly bulkier on the fake pair when compared to the slender toe box of the authentic pair.

This difference can be attributed to the poor attention to detail from the fake Nike x Off-White manufacturers as well as the lower quality factory equipment used in the production of the sneakers.

Step 4: Check the cages on the interior and the exterior side of the OW Presto OG shoes

Moving to the inner and the outer sides of the Off-White Presto OG shoes, we are going to look around at the shape of the cages.

By cages, we are talking about the matte/semi-opaque area we are about to highlight in the real vs fake Off-White Presto OG reference images below.

The inner OW Presto cage

The same as from the medial text, we are going to first look at the inner cage of the OW Presto, and then, and the outer cage.

rep vs retail ow presto og

In the Off-White Air Presto real vs fake images above, we have pointed out how the fake sneakers have their inner cages differently shaped.

In fact, the counterfeit Off-White Presto OG sneakers have their negative spaces between the lines are a lot rounder, wide and undefined.

On the other hand, on the authentic Off-White Presto shoes, the negative spaces between the bars are smaller, more defined and at the same time, less wide than the ones on the fake shoes.

The outer OW Presto cage

Now that you had a look at the interior side’s cage, let’s move on to the exterior cage of the real vs fake OW Presto OG sneakers.

In the fake vs real OW Presto OG image above, we have pointed out how, on the fake Prestos, the empty spaces inside the cage are wider than the ones on the legit pair.

Helped by the green line for the legit OW Presto sneaker’s arching of the cage, and the red line for the OW Presto’s cage, you can deduct how the fake sneakers’ cage looks a lot curvier and arched than the legit OW Presto cage.

Step 5: Inspect the small Swoosh logo on the exterior midsole of the OW Presto

For the fifth step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Air Presto OG sneakers, we are going to analyze the little Nike Swoosh logo that’s located on the exterior side of the midsole on both the fake vs real OW Presto OG shoes.

legit check ow presto

In the fake vs real Off-White Air Presto OG reference image above, you can see how the fake sneakers have their little Swoosh on the exterior midsole looking different than the one on the authentic shoes.

The fake sneakers have their little Nike Swoosh logo looking less wide at the curving on the interior side of it, making the fake Swoosh look curved more of a sudden than the authentic Nike Swoosh logo.

On the other hand, the legit midsole small Swoosh logo appears to be wider than the one on the fake sneakers, curving less of a sudden than the fake shoes’ logo.

Then, on the rear side of the Nike Swoosh logo on the midsole, you can see how the fake shoes’ midsole Swoosh logo is thicker at its edge than the authentic Swoosh.

Step 6: Verify the orange tab on the side of the OW Presto shoes

As you may have noticed, there is a little orange tab on the Swoosh of the OW Air Presto OG sneakers. Yes, we found quite a few flaws on the fake orange tab, even though it may seem like a simple thing.

The main flaw on the counterfeit Off-White Air Presto OG sneakers’ orange tab is about the corners.

The replica OW Air Presto sneakers have curvy corners for the orange tab, while the authentic OW Air Presto OG sneakers have sharp edges on the orange tab.

Besides, the main problem with the fake orange tab is that it is too long. The legit orange tab has smaller dimensions.

Step 7: Look at the perforations on the toe box of the Prestos

As for the seventh step fo the authentic vs counterfeit Off-White Air Presto OG legit check guide, we are going to check the perforations found on the toe box area of the OW Presto.

real vs fake ow presto

As you can see in the fake vs real Off-White Air Presto reference images above, we have pointed out the fact that the toe box perforations on the fake sneakers have different dimensions.

In fact, the fake Off-White Air Presto OG sneakers’ toe box perforations appear to be less wide and smaller than the perforations of the legit shoes.

Step 8: Check the size tag of your OW Presto

Moving inside the Off-White Air Presto sneakers, we are going to analyze the little paper tag pinned on the side of the sneakers, and check out the details met on the real vs fake OW Presto OG.

how to spot fake OW Presto OG

In the Off-White Presto OG real vs fake image above, we have pointed out three main flaws on the fake Prestos.

The first one is that the Nike Swoosh logo at the top of the size tag (placed in the middle of the tag) is longer than the authentic Swoosh at the top side of it, and it has worse printing-quality than the legit one.

Then, at the edge of the tag, you can see how on the authentic Prestos, the size tag is edged/bordered with a transparent material, while on the fake sneakers, this material appears to be fully white.

Lastly here, the “MADE IN CHINA”, and on some of the sneakers, the “MADE IN VIETNAM” text is looking a lot thicker on the fake sneakers.

On the authentic Prestos, this text has to be thinner, just as in the legit OW Presto OG model in the fake vs real OW Presto image above.

Step 9: Inspect the soles of your Off-White Air Presto OG sneakers

Flipping the sneakers upside down, you can see that the soles are really detailed, and in fact, they have some dots on the squares on the soles. Let’s inspect these on both the real vs fake OW Presto OG shoes.

The dots on the squares of the OW Presto OG soles are, first of all, a lot thicker on the counterfeit OW presto sneakers, and on the authentic shoe, they look a lot thinner.

Second of all, the circles are often not even centered in the middle of the squares on the replica shoes, and on the authentic ones, they are always centred in the middle of the squares.

Now that you have nine ways on how to spot fake Off-White Presto sneakers, for the tenth way to see fake OW Presto OG sneakers, we are going to show you the method by inspecting the Nike Swoosh logo on the side of the sneakers.

Swoosh curviness

First, we are going to inspect the curviness of the Nike Swoosh logo on the OW Presto sneakers then the stitching, and lastly the positioning.

real vs fake ow presto og

Most of the time, the counterfeit Off-White Air Presto’s Nike Swoosh logo will be curved at a smaller angle than the authentic ones.

By that, we mean that the replica OW Air Presto OG sneakers have their Nike Swoosh logo looking less curvy than the authentic logo.

Swoosh stitching

Let’s move on from the curve and the shape of the Nike Swoosh logo on the Off-White Prestos to the stitching on the logo.

As you can see in the fake vs real Off-White Air Presto image above, the counterfeit Off-White sneakers’ stitching that’s placed on and around the Swoosh logo is shorter and less defined than the stitching on the legit pair.

In fact, the fake Off-White Air Presto OG sneakers’ stitching over and around the Nike Swoosh logo appears to be longer and more textured and defined than the stitching on the fake shoes.

Swoosh placement

Now that we had a little chat about the Nike Swoosh logo’s curviness and stitching, we are about to continue it about the Swoosh logo by checking the real vs fake OW Presto’s Swoosh placement.

how to legit check presto off white

As you can see in the real vs fake Off-White Presto images above, we have pointed out how, on the replica OW Presto OG sneakers, the Nike Swoosh logo is placed a lot higher than the one met on the legit shoes.

You can take as a reference spot the line that separates the midsole from the toe box area next to the orange tab.

Looking at that line, you can sense how the fake Swoosh is placed above it, and how the authentic one is placed a little bit below it.

Step 11: Fake vs real OW Presto OG tongue height

As for the eleventh step of the fake vs real OW Presto Black legit check guide, we are going to inspect the height of the tongue.

Most of the time, the counterfeit Off-White Air Presto OG sneakers will have their tongue looking a lot longer than the authentic shoes’ tongue.

In the real vs fake Off_White Presto OG sneakers image above, you can see how the fake sneakers’ tongue appears to be a lot higher and longer than the authentic shoes’ tongue, which is smaller and less long than the fake Off-White Air Presto OG’ tongue.

Step 12: Real vs fake Off-White Air Presto box

As for the twelfth and the last step of the guide on how to legit check OW Air Presto OG sneakers, we are going to leave the sneakers aside and inspect the box of these shoes.

In the real vs fake Off-White Presto OG image above, we have pointed out how the fake box’s quotation mark’s print (” “) appears to be a lot thinner than the print of the marks on the legit box.
