If you are here to learn how to spot fake Off-White Blazer Grim Reaper, you are in the right place. That’s because today we are going to analyze the real vs fake Blazer Grim Reaper side-by-side.

In fact, we are going to get you to know how to spot fake Off-White Nike Blazer Mid Grim Reaper in just twelve simple steps.

Now that you know what are we talking about, let’s hop in the real vs fake Off-White Blazer Grim Reaper guide itself.

How to spot fake Off-White Blazer Grim Reaper

We consider that the most reliable spot to look at when legit checking the Off-White Nike Blazer Grim Reaper 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: Check the medial text

As for the first step of the real vs fake Off-White Air Max 97 Grim Reaper 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 AM97 Grim Reaper pair.

  • The left shoe

First of all, let’s start with the left shoe’s medial text, and then we will move on to the right shoe.

You can easily notice how, on the fake pair, the “TM” text appears to be too thin, and on the real pair, it is thicker.

Then, the quotation marks (“…”) are too small and too thick on the fake Off-White Blazer Grim Reaper. Then, on the legit pair, the quotation marks are bigger and thinner

The “USA” text is placed too high on the fake Blazers because it goes too much above the Swoosh, and on the legit pair, it is placed lower.

Lastly here, the “c.” text is, again, placed too high in the back of the Nike Swoosh logo and it is less visible, and on the legit pair, it is placed lower and it is more visible.

  • The right shoe

Now let’s also proceed to the right Grim Reper medial text and let’s analyze the flaws on the fake pair.

Again, we meet the same “TM” text flaw on the fake right shoe medial text: the fake “TM” text is too thick, and the legit pair has this text thinner.

It is really visible that on the fake pair, the medial text is too thick, but we have pointed this out especially on the “NIKE” text since it is the best visible on there too, along with the “TM” text.

As for the second step of the Off-White Grim Reaper Blazer authenticity check guide, we are going to quickly analyze the Nike Swoosh logos on both the real vs fake Grim Reaper sneakers.

As you can see in the fake vs real Off-White Blazer Black pictures above, the main problem with the counterfeit Grim Reapers is that the Swoosh is too thick, big and less curved at the top tip of it.

On the other hand, the legit OW Blazer Black sneakers have the Swoosh thicker and sharper at the top tip of it.

Also, because of the thickness at the top tip of the Swoosh, automatically the fake Blazer Grim Reaper Swoosh is less curvy and arched on its shape to form the middle side to the top of it. The authentic Swoosh is curvier.

Step 3: Analyze the rear heel code stamp

Now let’s flip the sneakers to the rear heel side of them and let’s analyze the code stamp on both the real vs fake Blazer Grim Reaper sneakers.

We have pointed out the fact that, on the fake pair, the code stamp (the rear heel pixel-type text) is placed too far away from the leather stitching area up above it.

On the other hand, the legit Off-White Blazer Grim Reaper pair has the code stamp placed closer to the leather part.

You can notice the distance with the help of the lines that we drew: the green line indicates the legit distance, and the red one the fake distance.

Step 4: Check the rear “NIKE” text

Because we were still talking about the rear side, let’s also go above the code stamp and analyze the “NIKE” text.

Basically, the fake Off-White Blazer Grim Reaper pairs have the “NIKE” text looking a lot smaller than they have to look like and this is a spot you can notice with the naked eye.

Besides, the sponge around the patch with the “NIKE” text is different too, on the fake Grim Reaper Blazer pair.

That’s something that may differ because of the lighting, but the sponge on the fake pair is a really light grey, and on the authentic pair, it looks darker.

Step 5: Inspect the shape of your sneakers

Still from the rear-view, let’s also analyze the shape of the Grim Reaper Blazer real vs fake pairs.

There’s no need for the hand-emoji pointers at all because the differences from the fake vs real Off-White Blazer Grim Reaper sneakers are obvious.

Most of the time, the fake shoes are too fat and wide from the rear angle, but this is something that may not apply all of the times on the fake top-tier replicas.

Step 6: Check the toe box of the Off-White Blazer Grim Reaper

Now let’s also move on to the front of the sneakers and let’s analyze the real vs fake Off-White Grim Reaper toe box.

  • The corner of the toe box

First, we are going to analyze the corner of the toe box, and then we are going to move on to the curve of the toe box.

Most of the time, the replica manufacturers don’t pay too much attention to the corner of the toe box, and to be more precise, the flaws are at the stitching.

As you can see in the fake Grim Reaper pair has the toe box leather material covering the square of stitching next to the toe box.

If you take a closer look at the authentic pair, you can notice the fact that the toe box leather part stops exactly near the stitching next to the toe box.

  • The curving of the toe box

Let’s also have a look at the curving of the toe box.

The main flaw with the fake Off-White Blazer Grim Reaper is that the toe box is flat instead of being curvy, as the authentic ones.

Step 7: Analyze the middle stitching on your sneakers

Speaking of the stitching on the Grim Reaper Blazers, let’s also have a look at the middle stitching on the sneakers.

Most of the time, the fake Off-White Grim Reaper sneakers will have the rear middle stitching looking distressed and less defined than the legit stitching, and it is more likely for the fake shoes to have extra threads.

Step 8: Verify the colours of the panels

Going to the side of the sneakers, we’ll have to analyze the colour of the transparent panels too.

This may be even the game of lights, but however, the fake Off-White Blazer Grim Reaper sneakers will have the transparent parts looking too bright, more likely to be white, instead of being darker, as a dark-grey.

Even though the authentic Grim Reaper Blazers have the panels transparent, they are darker and more subtle than the ones on the fake sneakers.

Step 9: Look at the size tag of your Grim Reaper Blazers

As for the ninth step of the real vs fake Grim Reaper Blazer legit check guide, let’s go inside the sneakers and let’s analyze the size tag.

First of all, the “QB” text on the top right corner of the size tag is placed too close to the right edge of the size tag, and the authentic “QB” text is placed more to the left.

Then, the fake Grim Reaper Blazers have the “MADE IN CHINA” text looking a lot thinner than it has to be. Basically, the legit text is thicker.

Step 10: Check the insoles of your Blazers

Because we were inside the Grim Reapers, let’s also analyze the insoles of the Blazers.

Most of the time, the fake Off-White Blazers will have the “THE TEN” text looking a lot wider and thinner than it has to be. The fake shoes also have the text too big, and the authentic insoles are exactly the opposite.

Step 11: Authenticate the Nike tongue tag

Now let’s hop off the sneakers and let’s go on the tongue area and analyze the real vs fake Off-White Blazer tongue tag.

Generally, the fake word “NIKE” is completely different stitched in as there are extra threads hanging around the letters, which makes them look too sharp.

Besides, the fake pair has the Swoosh logo less arched than needed, and this makes it appear in a different shape than needed.

Step 12: Check the orange tab of your Grim Reapers

Lastly on the exterior side of the sneakers, let’s also have a quick look at the orange tab.

Most of the time, the fake Off-White Blazer Grim Reaper pairs have the dimensions of the tab too small in height and width.

Keep in mind that this can be even the opposite, and that’s why we recommend you have the reference pictures that we show you whenever you legit check one of these.
