In fact, we are here today to teach you how to spot fake Cactus Plant Flea Market Nike Vapormax sneakers in fourteen simple steps with our ultimate guide.

Also, we would like to mention that we are going to refer at the Cactus Plant Flea Market Vapormax sneakers to just CPFM Vapormax.

Now that you’ve got the main idea of what we are about to talk about today, let’s get to the thirteen steps on how to spot fake Cactus Plant Flea Market CPFM Vapormax.

How to spot fake CPFM Vapormax sneakers

We’d like to mention that we consider the being medial text (the text on the side area of the CPFM Vapromax) the most reliable spot to look at when you want to spot the fake CPFM Vapormax sneakers.

Step 1: Inspect the medial text on your CPFM Vapormax

First of all, as we’ve said previously, this is one of the most reliable spots to look at when you want to check the fake vs real CPFM Vapormax pairs.

Now, we are going to analyze both the left and the right shoes, because the text on these is different.

  • The left shoe

First of all, let’s have a look at the real vs fake CPFM Vapormmax sneakers pictures and analyze the flaws on the fake pair:

CPFM Vapormax Fake Vs Real

As you can see in the fake vs real CPFM Vapormax pictures above, the fake pair has the main flaw in the letter “D”.

In fact, the counterfeit CPFM Vapormax pair has the letter “D” looking too thick and small.

Besides the dimensions and the thickness of the letter “D”, you can easily notice how it has been placed too close to the sockliner, on the fake pair.

The legit CPFM Vapormax pair has the letter “D” looking less thick, bigger than the fake one, and it is placed further from the sockliner.

  • The right shoe

Now it is the time to move on to the right CPFM Vapormax shoe and analyze the flaws on the fake pair.

CPFM Vapormax Real Vs Fake

You can easily notice how, on the fake CPFM Vapromax pair, the letter “U” is too arched on the interior part. That makes the fake CPFM Vapormax look a lot curvier in there.

On the other hand, the legit CPFM Vapromax pair has the letter “U” looking less curvy and round.

Besides, the letter “T” has its horizontal stick looking too curvy on the bottom right corner of it, and less curvy on the top left corner. The authentic CPFM Vapormax pair is exactly the opposite of this.

Step 2: Verify the tongue tag on your CPFM Vapormax

As for the second step of our real vs fake Nike CPFM Vapormax guide, we’ve prepared the “nike” tongue tag.

CPFM Vapormax LC Guide

We’ve noticed two main problems with the counterfeit Nike CPFM Vapormax pair, and these two are the Swoosh and the “nike” text.

First of all, on the fake CPFM Vapormax pair, you can notice how, the right edge of the Swoosh isn’t as arched as the legit one is.

The authentic CPFM Vapormax has it’s tongue tag Swoosh a lot more arched than the fake one.

Along with the Swoosh, we’ve found the flaw on the “nike” text in which the fake CPFM Vapormax pair has the dot of the letter “i” looking too small.

The legit Vapormax tongue tag has the dot of the letter “i” a lot bigger than the fake one.

Also, you can notice how the fake Vapormax CPFM pair has the dot of the letter “i” placed too much to the right side, going closer to the letter “k”, and the authentic dot is placed exactly above the stick of the letter “i”.

Now that you know how to check the medial text and the tongue tag, let’s move to the next step of this real vs fake CPFM Vapormax guide.

Step 3: Check the Nike Swoosh logo on the CPFM Vapormax sneakers

As for the third step of our real vs fake CPFM Vaporamx guide, we’ve prepared the Nike Swoosh logo on the side of the sneakers. Let’s see the fake vs real CPFM Vapormax pictures for reference:

Real Vs Fake CPFM Vapormax

As you can see in the pictures above, the fake CPFM Vapormax pair has its Swoosh looking too dark.

The legit Nike Swoosh logo on the side of the CPFM Vapormax sneakers has to look like a light/bright green, and the fake Swoosh seems to look like a dark green.

Besides the colour, you can notice the black scotch that’s sticking on the Swoosh.

The authentic scotch seems to be wrinkling, while the fake Swoosh has its scotch looking “perfect”, and it seems to have the wrinkles more hand-made, and the authentic wrinkles look more natural.

Step 4: Look at the midsole bubbles on the CPFM Vapormax

Now, let’s move to the midsole and analyze the black and red bubbles on both the fake vs real Nike CPFM Vapormax sneakers.

The main flaw on the midsoles of the fake CPFM Vapormax sneakers is that they are too opaque.

The legit midsole bubbles look filled and less opaque, and you can’t see too much through them.

On the other hand, on the fake CPFM Vapormax pair, you can see everything through the sole.

Step 5: Inspect the sockliner on your CPFM sneakers

Going a little bit above on the sneakers, you can notice the sockliner. We’ve got two main points to talk about on the real vs fake CPFM Vapormax sneakers, and they are the stitching and the colour.

  • The sockliner stitching

First, let’s analyze the stitching on the real vs fake CPFM Vapormax sockliners.

Legit Check CPFM Vapormax

The fake CPFM Vapormax has its sockliner’s stitching more obvious when you look at it, and the stitches are poorer in quantity on the fake sockliner.

Meanwhile, on the legit CPFM Vapormax, you can see that there’s a bigger density of stitches on the sockliner, and the fakes sockliner has fewer stitches.

  • The colour of the sockliner

Now, let’s also have a look at the real vs fake CPFM Vapormax sockliner colour.

The authentic CPFM Vapormax has its sockliner looking more grey or translucent black, rather than #0000 black. Then, the fake pair has its sockliner looking pure black, instead of this authentic dark grey/translucent black.

Step 6: Check the shape of your CPFM Vapormax sneakers

Now, let’s proceed to the shape of the real vs fake CPFM Vapormax sneakers.

Real VS Fake Cactus Vapormax

As you can see in the pictures above, the fake shoe has its heel too bumpy and curved, while the legit shoe is more straighten.

Then, on the toe box area, you can notice how the fake pair is, again, too creased up, bulky and curvy, while the legit pair is looking flattered and less curvy.

Step 7: Verify the stitching on the toe box

It’s the time when we have to move to the toe box of the CPFM Vapormax sneakers. Let’s analyze together the stitches on the toe box on both the real vs fake CPFM Vapormax sneakers.

Cactus Plant Flea Market Sneakers

It is visible on the picture above, how, on the authentic pair, the toe box looks creased up and wrinkled on the black scotch middle line, and the fake pair has the stitches looking flat and not bumpy and creased up, as they should be.

Step 8: Authenticate the laces on your CPFM Vapormax sneakers

As for the eight-step of this real vs fake Cactus Plant Flea Market x Nike Vapormax sneakers, we’re going to analyze the laces.

But for now, let’s start with how the laces are stitched like on the real vs fake CPFM Vapormax sneakers.

CPFM Sneakers Real Vs Fake

It is visible how, the fake laces used less material for the stitching, and the counterfeit laces are really thin compared to the legit ones.

Going to the rear side of the shoes, you’ll easily notice the CPFM smiley face logo. Let’s analyze this one too on both the real vs fake CPFM Vapormax sneakers.

CPFM Smiley Face Vapormax

As you can see in the pictures above, the fake CPFM Vapormax pair of sneakers has the smiley face looking too bright, as it goes more likely into orange.

On the other hand. the legit Cactus Plant Flea Market Vapormax has CPFM’s smiley face logo looking darker.

Step 10: Analyze the “VAPORMAX” midsole text

Now, going a bit back to the midsole, we’ve got the “VAPORMAX” text that’s located on the rear side of the midsole on the CPFM Vapormax sneakers.

Real Vs Fake Nike Vapormax

It is visible how, on the fake Vapormax CPFM pair, the “VAPORMAX” pair is too small.

This is the most visible if you look at the letter “R”. The legit Cactus Plant Flea Market Vapormax pair has it’s letter “R” looking a lot wider than the fake one.

Step 11: Verify the insoles on your CPFM Vapormax

Let’s move inside the CPFM Vapormax sneakers and analyze the insoles on both the left and the right shoes.

  • The left shoe

First, we are going to start with the left CPFM Vapormax shoe, then we’ll move to the right shoe as well.

CPFM Vapormax Legit Check

As you can notice in the Vapormax CPFM real vs fake pictures above, the main problem with the replica left shoe is that its insole has the letter “L” looking too long as stretched out.

This is the most visible if you look at the point where the orange and the right circles unite together.

The legit shoe has the bottom part of the letter “L” where these two are uniting, and the fake one is completely off this area, as it is placed lower than needed, below the orange area.

  • The right shoe

With this being said on the left insole, we can easily move to the right shoe’s insole.

CPFM Vapormax Real Vs Fake Guide

The problem with the right shoe’s insole is the shape of the letter “R”. If you look at the bottom legs of the letter “R”, you can see that its legs are not straightened, and they are angled a bit to the left and to the right.

The authentic letter “R” has its legs exactly on the opposite, as they are straightened.

Step 12: Look at the size tag of your CPFM Vapormax

Because we left off inside the shoes, at the insoles, we thought about adding the size tag, since it is the perfect moment for this step.

Nike Vapormax Legit Check

The main flaw on the counterfeit Cactus Plant Flea Market Vapormax sneakers is the text on the top left side of the size tag is placed too much to the right edge of the tag.

Then, the fake size tag has the “MADE IN CHINA” text, the one below, and the one above it, looking too thin. The legit text looks a lot thicker than the fake.

Step 13: Authenticate the box of your CPFM Vapormax sneakers

As for the thirteenth of our real vs fake CPFM Vapormax sneakers guide, we’ve prepared two main things to look at the box. They are the side box text and the box label.

  • The side box text

Let’s have a quick look at the text on the side of the CPFM Vapormax box.

Vapormax CPFM LC Guide

As you can see in the fake vs real CPFM pictures above, the counterfeit box has the Nike Swoosh logo looking too arched in the area that we’ve pointed out at. The legit box print Swoosh is less curvy and arched.

Then, the letter “h” in the word “sunshine” looking too small on the fake box label. Besides, the fake text seems to be too italic, while the legit text print looks more straight.

  • The box label

Now, it is the time to move on to the box label.

Vapormax Legit Check Guide

The fake Vapormax Cactus Plant Flea Market box label is absolutely different from the authentic one.

The main problem with the fake Vapormax CPFM box label is that it is missing the “WMNS” and “MENS” tags on the label.

Step 14: Check the packaging paper on your CPFM Vapormax

Now, let’s go inside the box and analyze the packaging paper.

Vapormax Nike CPFM Authentication Guide

The thing with the fake box label is that its colour is too concentrated. The smiley faces look too shiny, and the colour of the plastic paper is too brown.

On the other hand, the legit plastic paper looks more like a creamy-white, and the smiley faces look darker than the fake ones.
