There are a lot of replica pairs made for this specific pair, but there is no such pair as the authentic Off-White Presto, and we are here today, teaching you how to differentiate the real vs fake Off-White Air Presto (Black).

In this Ultimate Fake Vs Real Guide Off-White Air Presto with images, we will detail what you need to follow to ensure you are buying real, genuine Prestos.

Now that you know what we are talking about, let’s get you to know how to check the fake vs real Off-White Air Presto Black pairs.

How to spot fake Off-White Presto

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 Black 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 the OW Black Presto is the medial text on both the left and the right shoes.

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

As we have mentioned above, the go-to thing when you are legit checking the Off-White Air Presto Black sneakers is to look out for the medial text on these sneakers.

Now let’s have a quick look at the real vs fake Off-White Air Presto Black comparison pictures in order to let you know better what our point is.

The left shoe’s medial text

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

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 Black 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

The same flaws from the left shoe apply to the right shoe of the Off-White Air Presto Black, but to make it easier, we are going to give you a better visualization with the help of our real vs fake Off-White Prestos images:

It is visible in the real vs fake Off-White Presto images above how, on the fake shoes, the letters are too thin.

In fact, the text “for” at the top of the medial text is a lot thinner on the fake Off-White Presto Black pair, compared to the authentic pair which has the “for” text looking thicker.

Then, in the “Beaverton” text, the letter “B” is also visibly thinner on the fake pair, while on the authentic Off-White Black Prestos, the letter “B” is significantly thicker.

Lastly, for the medial text, we have pointed out how the authentic pair has the “NIKE” text on the most right side of the medial text placed lower than the authentic one.

This proves the same flaws from the left shoe apply as well: 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: Real vs fake OW Presto “AIR” text

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

In fact, let’s have a quick look at the fake vs real OW Presto reference images in order to visualize the flaws on the fake shoes better.

air text off white presto

First of all, we have pointed out with the green line for the authentic Off-White Air Presto Black sneakers, how the authentic text is placed a lot further from the strap on the rear side of the sneakers.

What we mean is that the authentic “AIR” text is placed in the middle of the tab which holds the “AIR” text, while the fake Off-White Prestos have their “AIR” text placed more to the left of it, being too close to the strap.

Moving to the shape of the letters, you can see how the letter “A” on the fake Off-White Presto Black sneakers is a lot thicker on the bottom left side of it.

On the other hand, the authentic letter “A” is thinner and obviously better, speaking in quality terms.

Lastly, for the “AIR” text, you can easily spot how the fake Off-White Presto sneakers have their quotation marks (“…”) looking a lot longer and thinner.

On the authentic OW Presto shoes, the quotation marks are thicker and they look boxier than the fake ones.

Step 3: Verify the toe box area on the OW Presto Black shoes

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.

fake vs real off white presto

As you can see in the real vs fake Off-White Presto Black images above, the authentic OW Presto shoes have their toe box looking a lot lower and smaller than the fake shoes’ toe box.

In fact, the counterfeit Off-White Air Presto Black sneakers have their toe box looking a lot curvier from the bottom side, and from the top side, looking a lot bigger and taller than the authentic shoes’ toe box.

Step 4: Look at the inner and outer cages of the Presto Off-White Black sneakers

Moving to the inner and the outer sides of the Off-White Presto Black 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 Black 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.

fake vs real ow presto

In the Off-White Air Presto Black 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 Black 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 inner cage, let’s move on to the outer cage of the OW Presto sneakers.

fake vs real ow presto

First of all, the same flaw from the inner cage applies to the outer cage as well: the counterfeit OW Presto sneakers have a lot more negative space between the lines, and not only, but even this space is curvier and a lot wider on the fake shoes.

Besides that, you can notice how the line which we have highlighted in the picture above on the outer cage is straight on the authentic Off-White Presto Black sneakers, and how on the fake shoes, it is a lot curvier.

Step 5: Analyze the inner cage’s little Swoosh

Because we were still talking about the cages all over the Off-White Air Presto Black sneakers, we are going to move back a bit to the inner cage, and examine the little Nike Swoosh logo met in there.

fake vs real off white presto

As you can see in the real vs fake Off-White Presto images above, there are small differences in the positioning of the Swoosh between the real and the fake OW Presto Black shoes.

In fact, the counterfeit Off-White Presto’s little Nike Swoosh logo on the inner cage is less curvy on the bottom long side of it, while on the legit shoes, this logo has its long bottom line looking more curvier and sharper than the fake ones.

Not only that, but even the upper and the bottom edges of the Nike Swoosh logo are a lot thinner on the counterfeit OW Presto Black shoes, and on the legit ones, these edges are sharp.

Step 6: Real vs fake Off-White Presto Black orange tab

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

fake vs real ow presto orange tab

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

The replica OW Air Presto Black sneakers have curvy corners for the orange tab, while the authentic OW Air Presto Black 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 your OW Air Presto Black

As for the seventh step fo the authentic vs counterfeit Off-White Air Presto Black 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

By perforations, we are talking about these holes met on the toe box area of the OW Air Presto Black sneakers.

The main problem with the replica OW Presto Black sneakers’ perforations is that they are too wide, and that is easily visible in the real vs fake OW presto Black images that we have linked above.

On the other hand, the authentic Off-White Air Presto Black sneakers have their perforation holes looking less wide and large than the holes met on the fake shoes.

Step 8: Inspect the size tag of the 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 Black.

real vs fake size tag presto ow

First of all, you can easily notice how the “US UK EUR cm” text is a lot thinner on the counterfeit OW Presto Black pairs, and how on the legit sneakers, these texts are obviously looking bolded (thicker).

Then, looking and the product code, which in this case it is AA3830-002 (this code has to be the same as the one on the box’s label), you can easily spot how the counterfeit OW Presto Black sneakers have the product ID number looking a lot thinner than the authentic text.

Even more, the “MADE IN CHINA” and the “FABRIQUE EN CHINE” texts met just a little bit lower than the product number look a lot thinner on the replica OW Air Presto Black shoes, and on the legit shoes, these look thicker and bolder.

Step 9: Analyze the soles of your OW Presto

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 Black shoes.

As you can see in the images above, the counterfeit Off-White Presto Black shoes have their soles differently detailed.

By that, we mean that the dots on the squares of the OW Presto Black’s 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 squares are often not even centred 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.

As for the tenth step of the real vs fake OW presto legit check guide, we are going to inspect the curviness, stitching and positioning of the Nike Swoosh logo is on both the OW Presto real vs fake pairs.

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.

fake vs real Swoosh ow presto

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 Black sneakers have their Nike Swoosh logo looking less curvy than the authentic logo.

Swoosh stitching

Now that you know how to legit check the OW Presto by looking at the Swoosh’s curviness, we are going to teach you how to legit check them by inspecting the stitching all over the Swoosh.

It is visible in the real vs fake OW Presto Black images above how, on the replica sneakers, the black stitching that hangs on and around the Nike Swoosh logo is a lot longer, wider, and it doesn’t have the same pattern for every stitch, while the authentic logo does.

Long story short, the authentic Nike Swoosh logo’s stitching is uniform and it follows the same pattern all around the logo, while the fake shoes don’t.

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.

As you can see in the real vs fake Off-White Presto images above, we have pointed out how, on the replica OW Presto Black 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 Black 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. Let’s have a look at the fake vs real Off-White Presto Black reference images:

replica vs retail ow presto

In the Off-White Air Presto real vs fake images above, we have pointed out how the authentic shoe has a smaller tongue than the fake shoes’ tongue.

In order to get this right, when you are about to buy one of these shoes, be sure to ask the seller to send you a picture from the side of the shoes in order to visualize the height of the tongue.
