We think that you’re here because you are a sneakerhead, and when you buy your items, you want to know whether the fake vs real. In fact, you may be here to know how to spot fake Black Vapormax Off-White sneakers.

Today, we are here with another guide on how to spot fake vs real Off-White Vapormax sneakers just in nine steps to mark on your fake vs real OW Vapormax Black sneakers list.

We would like to say how the stitching is the most reliable spot to look at when checking the fake vs real Off-White Vapormax sneakers because the stitching is usually flawed the most by the replica manufacturers.

Without any further ado, let’s have a look at the proper guide on how to spot fake Vapormax Off-White sneakers.

How to spot fake Nike Off-White Vapormax Black

We consider that the most reliable spot to look at when legit checking the Off-White Nike Vapormax Black sneakers is the medial text on both the left and the right shoes.

Replica manufacturers don’t manage to get the print right, as they usually make their pairs having this medial text looking either too thick or sometimes too thin.

Step 1: Real vs fake OW Vapormax medial text

As for the first step of the real vs fake Off-White Vapormax Black guide, we are going to quickly analyze the medial text because we consider it is one of the most reliable signs of a fake OW Vapormax Black pair.

Let’s start with the medial text on the right shoe, and then the medial text on the left shoe too.

First of all, the “TM” text is too square and it looks more like a box on the fake Vapormax sneakers, and the authentic “TM” text is wider.

Then, the quotation marks and the “NIKE AIR VAPORMAX” text looks too curvy at the edges of the letters and thicker in terms of paint on the fake Vapormax Off-White sneakers, and the legit text is sharper and thinner.

Then, the word “Beavertown” is too thick on the fake pair, and the legit text is thinner. Also, next to this text, the comma (“,”) character id round instead of being a square on the fake shoes.

Lastly here, the “c. 2017” text is too thick on the fake pair and thinner on the legit sneakers.

Now let’s have a quick look at the real vs fake Off-White Vapormax Black right shoe medial text.

The same problem with the “TM” text applies here too: the fake “TM” text is too small and it looks too much of a square and a box instead of being wider.

Then, the word “VAPORMAX” is too thick on the fake pair, and the legit text is thinner.

Next to this text, the quotation mark looks out of shape and deformed because the first line is thinner than the second one.

Moving on, the comma next to the “Beavertown” text is, again, looking like a circle instead of being a square comma.

We can meet the “c. 2017” thickness flaw on the fake right shoe too: the fake text is too thick and the legit one is thinner.

For the second step of the real vs fake Vapormax OW sneakers legit check guide, we are going to look at the Nike Swoosh logo on the side of the sneakers.

First, we are going to analyze the stitching of the Swoosh, and then the placement of it.

You can notice how the legit Vapromax Black sneakers have this stitching “sustaining” the Nike Swoosh logo on both the authentic vs replica Vapormax Black sneakers.

The flaw on the fake shoes is that these stitches are too short and they aren’t as long as they have to be next to the Swoosh, as the legit Swoosh has stitching on and around it, and the fake Swoosh has stitching just on it.

Now let’s move on to the placement of the real vs fake Vapormax Off-White Swoosh.

As you can see in the image above, we have pointed out how the fake Swoosh is badly placed on the fake shoes.

That’s because on the rear side of the Swoosh, the fake one is placed on the grey part, and the legit Swoosh is placed perfectly on the side that separates the black and the grey parts.

Step 3: Check the rear side “AIR” text

Now let’s move on to the third step of the real vs fake Vapormax Off-White sneakers and let’s analyze the “AIR” text on the side of the shoes.

As you can see in the images above, the fake Vapormax Off-White sneakers have the “AIR” text placed too high on the shoes, and the authentic “AIR” text is placed lower.

Keep in mind that some replica Vapormax Off-White sneakers can also have the text placed too low, and that’s why we recommend you check our images when you legit check the Vapormax OW Black sneakers.

Step 4: Inspect the lace loops of your Vapormax Off-White shoes

For the fourth step of the authenticity check process, we are going to look at the laces.

Basically, we call this step “lace loops” because we are talking about the way that the laces have been put into the lace holes of the Vapormaxes.

In the image above we have highlighted the top and the bottom sides of the laces on the fake shoes because it is visible how these go wildly placed in, and by that.

By that, we mean that the fake laces have their sides switched when these were placed into the lace holes and they look like they are looped.

On the other hand, the authentic Vapormax Off-White Black sneakers have their laces placed into the lace holes without looping and they look just right.

Keep in mind that this tell couldn’t apply anymore if the seller relaced his shoes without paying attention to the laces, because, at the same time, the other spots can look all right.

Step 5: Look at the toe box of your sneakers

Moving a little lower from the laces, let’s have a look at the fake vs real Vapormax OW Black toe box and its height.

The flaws are noticeable in the picture above: the fake Off-White Vapormax Black sneaker have the area of the toe box a lot curvier and arched than it has to be. On the other hand, the authentic toe box is less curvy.

Step 6: Verify the orange tab above the Swoosh

Now let’s go a little bit higher above the Swoosh and let’s quickly analyze the fake vs real Off-White Vapormax Black orange tab.

The flaw on the fake Vapormax Back sneakers is that the orange tab is too long in width, and on the other hand, the authentic orange tab is more of a square than that rectangle.

Also, sometimes replica manufacturers manage to make the orange tab with curvy and round corners, and the authentic orange tab will always have square and straight corners.

Step 7: Fake vs real OW Vapormax size tag

Let’s move on inside the real vs fake OW Vapormax Black sneakers and analyze the size tag from inside these shoes.

As you can see in the image above, the fake Vapormax Off-White sneakers have the “US” text placed a lot higher above the size number, which in this case, it is “8”, and the same problem is met at the “cm” and the “26” text.

On the legit size tag, there is less space between the country indicator and the size itself, and besides, the fake “US UK EUR cm” text is too thin too.

How can I spot fake Off-White Vapormax sneakers in seconds?

The seven fake vs real Off-White Vapormax Black steps outlined above are well detailed and it will be time demanding to perform each authentication step when you need to confirm the originality of your Vapormax sneakers.

That is why we have compiled this quick 60 seconds solution to authenticating your Off-White Vapormax Black sneakers. Below are the top 7 indicators that can help you determine if you have a fake pair of Off-White Vapormax Black or the real deal.

  1. Inspect the medial text. Usually, the fake text is either too thick, or the quotation marks are too big and out of shape or the comma character is round instead of a square
  2. Analyze the Nike Swoosh logo. Most of the time, the fake stitching over the shoe won’t go along with the Swoosh (meaning around it), as on the legit sneakers. Also, the legit Swoosh is always placed between the grey and the black areas (looking to the rear side of it)
  3. Check the side “AIR” text so it won’t be placed too low or too high
  4. Look at the laces of your sneakers. Usually, the fake shoes have the laces looped and they switch their sides hole after hole in which the laces go in, and the authentic shoes don’t
  5. Verify the toe box of your shoes. The fake Vapormax Off-White Black sneakers can also have the toe box a lot higher than it has to be
  6. Analyze the orange tab of your sneakers. The fake orange tabs are too long either in width, height or both, and they sometimes come with round corners, fact that you’ll never meet on the legit shoes
  7. Inspect the size tag of your shoes so there won’t be too much distance between the text and also analyze the thickness of the text so it won’t be too thin or too thick
