If you’d like to learn how to spot fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunk sneakers, then you’ve come into the right place.

Just by reading our real vs fake Off-White Air Rubber Dunk authenticity check guide, you will learn how to easily spot fake Nike x Off-White Rubber Dunks within a  few steps to follow.

Speaking of which, with every step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Air Rubber Dunk shoes, we are going to link reference real vs fake Off-White Rubber Dunk images so that each step will be easily understandable.

In this fake vs real Off-White Rubber Dunk legit check guide, we are going to mix up the comparison of all the three colourways for the shoes, and we’d like to tell you that all of the steps highlighted in our guide apply to all colourways of the Off-White Rubber Dunks.

At the same time, we’d like to let you know that  we will refer to the shoes simple by the name of OW Rubber Dunk as well throughout the guide.

If you want to spot fake Off-White Air Rubber Dunk pairs, the best spot to check is the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text, because the fake pairs never have their letters correctly positioned and shaped, while the authentic OW Rubber Dunks always have their text perfectly attached to the label.

How to spot fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunk

Step 1: Fake vs real Nike Off-White Rubber Dunk interior tongue label

Just as we’ve previously mentioned, the quickest way to authenticate the Off-White Air Rubber Dunks is to look at the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text.

The fake Off-White Rubber Dunk pairs never have their text on the interior tongue label correctly positioned and shaped, as most of the fake items have their text waving.

At the same time, the fake OW Rubber Dunks always tend to have their letters at the wrong thickness, and the authentic pairs always have the same font-weight for their letters.

Now, let’s brief the reference real vs fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunk image linked below in order to properly differentiate between the real deal and the fake pair.

how to authenticate off-white rubber dunk

In the image with the real vs fake Off-White Rubber Dunks above, we have pointed out a few flaws visible on the fake shoes’ label.

Staring with the “SPORT” and the “SHOES” words found at the top of the tongue label, we have noticed how the fake shoes have their letters at the wrong font-weight.

In fact, the fake shoes have both their “SPORT” and “SHOES” words looking too thin when compared to the real deal.

Another flaw visible on the same two words is that they use a bit of a different font from the authentic shoes’ text.

Lastly, for the “SPORT” and the “SHOES” text, you can see how the fake shoes have their text too narrow and a bit too tall, therefore looking too boxy.

On the other hand, the authentic Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunks have their “SPORT” and the “SHOES” inscriptions looking wider than the ones on the fake shoes.

Up next, looking at the “THROUGHOUT” text found on the replica OW Rubber Dunks, you can see how the letters are waving.

By that, we mean that the fake shoes have their letters in the “THROUGHOUT” text starting at the normal size, and then, I the middle of the word, the letters tend to be bigger, therefore looking like waves.

Talking about the authentic Nike x Off-White Rubber Dunks, you can see how the letters in their “THROUGHOUT” word have the same size and shape, unlike the fake pair’s letters.

Skipping one line and going lower on the label, the fake shoes have their “SWOOSH” text looking too narrow and tall/big once again, and the authentic shoes have their letters smaller and boxier.

Lastly, the fake shoes have their “MADE” word looking too thin and with improperly amounts of space between the letters, and the authentic item has its same text looking thicker, with the asme kerning between the letters.

The kerning flaw on the fake item’s label is caused because the letter “D” is placed too close to the “E”, while the same characters on the legit label still have the same distance between when compared to the rest of the letters.

With this being said for the first step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x Off-White Rubber Dunks, let’s proceed to the next step of the guide.

Step 2: Real vs fake Off-White Air Rubber Dunk medial text

The second best factory of authenticity when talking about the real vs fake Off-White Air Rubber Dunks is the medial text.

In fact, the medial text is the one of the best authenticity indicators for almost every Nike x Off-White sneaker.

That’s because, in most cases, the fake shoes tend to have their letters at the wrong thickness, therefore the wrong amount of kerning between the letters.

The medial text on the left shoe

First of all, we will have a look at the medial text on the left shoe, and then, we will particularly inspect the text on the right shoe too, with another real vs fake OW Rubber Dun medial text comparison picture.

Before we explain the flaws on the fake shoes’ left medial text, let’s have a look at the reference real vs fake OW Rubber Dunk image below.

off-white rubber dunk real vs fake

As you can notice in the image with the real vs fake Nike Off-White Rubber Dunks above, the fake pair has three main flaws.

First of all, looking at the word “NIKE” at the top-right corner of the text, you can notice how the fake pair has its letters looking smaller, a bit boxier, and also thinner than the ones on the legit pair.

Speaking of which, the authentic Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunk pair has its “NIKE” text looking bigger, wider (and less boxy, of course), but also a tad bit thicker than the one found on the fake shoe.

Up next, looking at the word “RUBBER” printed on the fake shoes’ medial text, you can notice how it looks too thin and also a bit faded out, and the point is that the fake shoes were not even worn, as they are “brand new”.

At the same time, the fake shoes have their kerning failed as well, as their letter “R” is placed further away from the rest of the letters.

Not only that, but the rest of the letters on the fake shoes’ “RUBBER” text have too much space between, when compared to the real deal.

Mentioning the authentic shoes, you can notice how their word “RUBBER” has yet again the same thickness and kerning between each letter, unlike the fake shoes.

Lastly, speaking of the “c. 2019” print, the fake shoes have their letters looking too thin, as they use a different font from the real ones.

The authentic shoes appear to have their text thicker and more defined than the one on the fake OW Rubber Dunks.

The medial text on the right shoe

Now that you know how to authenticate Off-White Rubber Dunks by looking at the text on the left shoe, let’s move on to the right shoe as well.

First things first, we’ll brief the reference real vs fake Nike x Off-White Rubber Dunk image below, and then, we will explain the flaws on the fake shoes, just as usual.

off-white rubber dunks legit check

In the image with the fake vs real Off-White Rubber Dunks above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their “c. 2019” text looking too thick.

On the other hand, the authentic Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunks have their “c. 2019” text looking thinner than the one on the fake pair.

Yet another flaw visible on the fake shoes’ “c. 2019” print is the kerning: since the characters on the fake text are too thick, they have less space between.

The legitimate Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunks have their “c. 2019” with more space between the characters.

Then, looking at the “USA” text, you can notice how the replica OW Rubber Dunks have their text once again too thick, and how the legit shoes have their text thinner.

Step 3: Verify the size tag inside your Nike OW Rubber Dunk sneakers

Proceeding to the third method on how to authenticate the Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunk sneakers, we will have to look inside the shoes, once again.

This time, we are going to move even lower inside the shoes, and we’ll have to check the paper attached to the shoes, indicating the size and other details about your pair of sneakers.

As always, let’s first have a look at the reference real vs fake Off-White Rubber Dunk image below.

how to authenticate ow rubber dunks

In the image with the real vs fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunk image above, we have pointed out how the replica pair has its text at the wrong font-weight.

Starting wit the product ID code found on the top-right corner of the tag, the fake shoes have their “CU6015-001” text (it differs from a colour way to another) looking too thin.

Talking about the authentic Rubber Dunks, they have their product ID code looking thicker and more defined than the one found on the replica Off-White shoes.

Then, the fake shoes also have their “UPC” number text looking too thin as well, while the authentic Nike x Off-White Rubber Dunks have their text looking thicker, once again.

Lastly, looking at the bottom left corner of the size tag, we have pointed out in the real vs fake Off-White Rubber Dunk image above how the fake shoes have their text looking too thin too, and how the legit shoes have their text thicker.

Step 4: Check the shoes for the details on the rear side

Going to the fourth method on how to spot fake Nike x Off-White Rubber Dunks, we are going to look at the shoes from the rear side.

Most of the time, the fake shoes have their text and stitches and the wrong thickness, while the authentic shoes almost never fail at these details.

off-white rubber dunk fake vs real

In the image containing the fake vs real Off-White Rubber Dunks above, we have pointed out how the replica shoes have their double-stitching which goes up to the top of the shoes varying in length and thickness.

On the other hand, the authentic shoes have their double-stitching which goes up to the top of the shoes at the same shape and thickness.

Then, looking at the stitching all around the “NIKE A I R” text patch looking too thick and too thin all around, as it also presents extra hanging threads.

The stitching all around the “NIKE A I R” patch found on the authentic shoes looks more even, as it is defined more than the authentic shoes’ stitching.

We’ve mentioned the “NIKE A I R” text so far, and now, looking at this text, you can see how the fake shoes have their text too thin.

On the other hand, the authentic Rubber Dunks have their “NIKE A I R” text looking thicker than the one found on the replica pair.

Even though we didn’t point it out in the real vs fake Nike x Off-White Rubber Dunk image above, the fake shoes have their stitching on the midsole absent.

The authentic shoes have their stitching totally visible, while the fake shoes don’t have their stitching any visible.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways on how to authenticate this item.

The tells listed below this point are still reliable signs of authenticity, but for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the top tells we’ve explained above this point to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

Step 5: Look at the Nike Swoosh logo found on the side of your shoes

Going to the next step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunks, we are going to talk about the Nike Swoosh logo.

As you may know already, we are first going to have a look at the reference real vs fake OW Air Rubber Dunk image below.

off-white air rubber dunk real vs fake

In the image with the fake vs real OW Air Rubber Dunk image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their Swoosh logo at the top looking too thick and bulky.

On the other hand the authentic Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunks have their top of the logo looking too thinner and sharper than the fake shoes’ logo.

At the same time, both on the curvy and the on the bottom side of the Swooshes, the fake shoes have their logo looking a bit too curvy, but also a tad bit thicker than the authentic shoes’ logo.

The authentic shoes have their Nike Swoosh logo looking less curvy and also thinner and sharper than the fake shoes’ logo.

Step 6: Inspect the insole of your Off-White Rubber Dunks

As for the sixth step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x Off-White Rubber Dunks, we are going to look at the real vs fake OW Rubber Dunk pairs on the inside, for the insoles.

What we are going to analyze at this step is the “Y2013” Off-White inscription, on both the fake vs real OW Rubber Dunks.

In the image with the real vs fake Nike x Off-White Rubber Dunk image above, we have pointed out how the replica shoes have their “Y2013” text looking too thin.

On the other hand, the authentic shoes have their “Y2013” text thicker and easier to read than the fake shoes’ text.

With this being said for the insole of the fake vs real OW Rubber Dunks, let’s now proceed to the seventh step of the guide.

Step 7: Real vs fake Off-White Rubber Dunk exterior tongue badge

Going to the seventh method on how to spot fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunk sneakers, we are going to look at the real vs fake OW Rubber Dunks for the exterior tongue badge.

First, and as always, we are going to look at the real vs fake Nike OW Rubber Dunk  image below, and after that, we will explain the flaws on the fake item.

In the image with the real vs fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunks above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have both of their registered trademark “®” symbols looking too thin.

The authentic OW Rubber Dunks have their “®” symbol looking thicker and more filled than the ones found on the fake shoes’ badge.

At the same time, the fake shoes also have their “OFF” text looking thinner than the one found on the legit shoes, which is, of course, thicker than the fake pair’s text.

Step 8: Look at the stitching on the midsole of your shoes

Proceeding to the eighth method on how to spot fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunks, we are going to look at the real vs fake OW Rubber Dunks for the stitching on the midsole.

Most of the time, the fake shoes tend to have their stitching on the midsole at the wrong shape, size and length.

Speaking of the authentic OW Rubber Dunks, they have their stitching on the midsole looking thicker and boxier than the fake shoes’ stitching on the midsole.

Step 9: Analyze the holes below the triangle cage on the side of the shoes

For the ninth method on how to spot fake Nike Rubber Dunk Off-White shoes, we are going to look at the shoes from the side, specifically below the area of where the cage goes shaped like a triangle.

Right there, you can find six holes which are supposed to be thin and narrow. Now, let’s see the fake vs real Rubber Dunk Off-White image below.

fake vs eral off-white rubber dunk

In the image with the real vs fake Rubber Dunk OW shoes above, we have pointed out how the fake pair has its six holes improperly shaped.

That is because the holes are too small, bulky, and they have too much blank space on the inside.

The authentic Nike x Off-White Rubber Dunks have their holes looking thinner and taller than the ones on the fake shoes.

Step 10: Examine the holes on the toe box of your shoes

Since at the previous step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x OW Rubber Dunk shoes we were talking about the holes on the side of the shoes, for the tenth step, we are going to look at the holes on the toe box.

So as to properly analyse the holes on the toe box, we recommend that you analyse the shoes from a top down angle in order to determine if you have a real vs fake OW Rubber Dunk pair.

offwhite rubber dunk real vs fake

In the image whit the real vs fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunks above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their six holes at the wrong dimensions.

That is because the replica OW Rubber Dunks have their holes looking too narrow once again, just as the ones from the side of the shoes.

In regards to the authentic Rubber Dunks, they have their holes wider and bigger than the ones found on the replica pair.

Step 11: Authenticate the AIR bubble on the side of your OW Rubber Dunks

Going further, for the eleventh method on how to spot fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunks, we are going to look at the AIR bubble on the side of the shoes.

Just as always, let’s first analyze the reference real vs fake  Off-White Rubber Dunk image linked below.

off-white rubber nike dunk real vs fake

The main flaw on the fake shoes is that they have their bubble at the wrong dimensions.

By that, we mean that the fake shoes have their AIR bubble bulkier and bigger than the one found o the legitimate shoes.

Step 12: Look at the orange tab of your Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunks

The legitimate Rubber Dunk OW shoes have their tab looking bigger and longer than the one on the fake shoes.

At the same time, in the real vs fake OW Rubber Dunk image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their stitches on the Nike Swoosh logo improperly attached, as the logo presents extra threads.

The authentic Off-White Rubber Dunks have their stitching all over the Nike Swoosh logo in place, as it is does not present any extra threads, unlike the fake shoes.

Step 13: Check the inflation level of the toe box on your OW Rubber Dunks

As for the thirteenth step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunk, we are going to look at the toe box once again, but this time from the side of the shoes.

What we are going to analyse is the inflation of the toe box, meaning that we will have a look at the thickness of the toe boxes on both the real vs fake Off-White Nike Air Rubber Dunks.

real vs fake ow rubber dunk

In the image with the real vs fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunks above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their toe box improperly inflated.

That is because the fake shoes’ toe box is too little inflated, therefore having a thin and a deflated look, whereas on the authentic shoes, it is supposed to be exactly the opposite.

The authentic Rubber Dunks must have their toe box looking thicker and over-inflated, as this is the classic Nike Dunk look.

Step 14: Real vs fake Nike x Off-White Air Rubber Dunk box label
