Now that you know precisely what we are going to talk about in our fake vs real Off-White Sail AJ4 legit check guide, let’s proceed to the actual ways on how to authenticate the Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail.

How to spot fake Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail

Step 1: Real vs fake Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail medial text

As we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the medial text as one of the most reliable signs of authenticity when speaking of the fake vs real Off-White Air Jordan 4s.

Therefore, this is why we are starting this Off-White Air Jordan 4 real vs fake guide with the medial text.

Fake vs real Off-White AJ4 Sail medial text – left shoe

We are going to begin looking at the fake vs real Off-White Air Jordan 4s on the left shoe’s medial text, and then, we will also compare the medial text on the right shoe as well.

First of all, let’s have a quick look at the reference real vs fake Off-White AJ4 Sail images so that the comparison would be easier.

fake vs real ow aj4

Now that you’ve had a look at the reference real vs fake Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail image above, let’s proceed to the flaws on the fake shoes.

First of all, we have pointed out in the fake vs real Off-White AJ4 image above how the whole text on the fake shoes has a lower font-weight than the one on the authentic shoes’ characters.

This can be the easiest visible by looking at the letters which are more visible, obviously, since the letters are covered by the waffle-shaped cage.

Therefore, we have pointed out in the fake vs real OW AJ4 Sail image above how the replica AJ4s have their “for”, “NIKE”, “Oregon”, and the “USA” prints looking too thin.

On the other hand, looking at the legit Air Jordan 4 shoes, you can see in the real vs fake OW AJ4 image above how they have their words looking thicker and more defined than the fake shoes’ words.

At the same time, the authentic Off-White AJ4s have their whole inscription at the same font-weight, while the fake shoes commonly have their inscriptions at different font-weights.

By that, we mean that the fake shoes are commonly found to have their inscriptions looking too thin on some sides and too thick on other sides.

Fake vs real Off-White AJ4 Sail medial text – right shoe

With this being said for the medial text on the left shoe of the fake vs real Off-White AJ4 Sail shoes, let’s move on to the right shoe as well.

In the fake vs real Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail image above, we have used another version of the replica Sail Off-White 4s, where you can see how the quality of the shoes changed, especially on the medial text.

First of all, looking at the “Off-White TM” text at the top of the fake shoes, we have noticed and pointed out at how the fake shoes have their printing thicker than what it is supposed to look like.

Not only that, but the fake shoes have their whole inscriptions looking too thick when compared to the ones on the legit Off-White Sail 4s.

The same font-weight flaw can also be visible on the “AIR JORDAN”, the “BEAVERTON” and on the “c. 1989” texts.

Another major flaw on the fake shoes is that they have their text smaller than what it looks like on the legit shoes.

The authentic shoes have their text as big as it almost touches the edges of the waffle-shaped patch, while the fake shoes have their text too small and far away from the edges of the patch.

Step 2: Verify the size tags inside your shoes

Proceeding to the second way on how to spot fake Off-White Air Jordan 4s, we are going to check the real vs fake Off-White AJ4 Sail pairs for the size tags inside each shoe.

The same as we’ve mentioned at the top of the guide, we are first going to look at the fake vs real Off-White AJ4 Sail image below, and then, we’ll explain the flaws on the fake shoes.

off-white air jordan 4 qc lc

In the real vs fake Off-White AJ4 image above, we have spotted one main flaw, mainly visible in three sides of the fake shoes in the image above.

The flaw that we are talking about is the difference of font-weights all around the fake shoes’ size tag

The first text that we’ve pointed out at is the product ID code “CV9388-100”, which on the fake shoes, it is too thin on the first two letters, and then the “9388-” characters are too thick, followed by the last three numbers “100” which are also too thin.

Then, on the left side of the tag, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their “EUR” text looking too thick.

The same flaw applies to the rows which say that the shoes are made in China (which can be found in the bottom left corner of the tag), where the rows of text are also too thick on the pair.

The text on the authentic Off-White AJ4s has the same font-weight all around its characters on the size tag, while as we previously spoke about, the fake shoes have their text improperly font-weighted.

Step 3: Look at the “AIR” text on the midsole of your Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail

Going to the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White AJ4 Sail shoes, you will have to flip your shoes to the exterior profile side and check out the quality of the “AIR” printing.

So as to visualise the differences between the real deal and the fake shoes, let’s have a quick look at the fake vs real Off-White AJ4 Sail comparison image below.

off-white air jordan 4 real vs fake

In the fake vs real Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail image above, we have pointed out how there are three major flaws on the fake shoes.

First of all, the counterfeit-produced OW AJ4 Sails have their “AIR” text looking too thin, while the legit shoes have their text thicker.

Then, another noticeable flaw in the fake vs real OW AJ4 image above is that the fake shoes also have their AIR letters looking too small, and how their quotation marks (” “) are too big when compared to the AIR letters.

On the other hand, the authentic shoes have their “AIR” text looking not only thicker than the fake shoes’ text, but also at the same font size, unlike the fake shoes which have their quotation marks looking bigger than the actual letters.

Lastly, the third flaw which we’ve noticed on the fake shoes is that they also have their “AIR” text placed too high from the midsole, and also not curved.

By curved, we mean that the authentic shoes have their “AIR” text going along with the curve of the midsole, while the fake shoes have their text still, not curving along with the midsole.

With this being said for the “AIR” text as well, let’s proceed to the next step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail sneakers.

Step 4: Check the stitching on the rear side of your Off-White Sail Air Jordan 4s

For the fourth step of the guide on how to authenticate Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail WMNS, we are going to flip the shoes to the rear side, and check out the quality of the vertical stitching which merges into the sole of the shoes.

As you may be used to already, we are first going to check out the reference fake vs real Off-White AJ4 Sail image.

ow aj4 sail real vs fake

The counterfeit shoes have a lack of quality on the stitching as well, which is a common factor for the fake shoes.

With this being said, the stitching flaw can also be visible on the fake shoes in the real vs fake OW AJ4 Sail image above.

As you can see, the fake shoes have their vertical stitching looking too thick and short, as the stitching is fit too deep into the shoes.

On the other hand, the authentic sneakers have their stitching looking thinner and taller, and also fit less deep into the shoes than the fake shoes’ stitching.

Then, looking at the fake shoes’ curved stitching all around and below the translucent patch is too small and thick, while the same stitches on the legit shoes are bigger and thinner.

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: Fake vs real Off-White AJ4 Sail side rectangle stitching

Moving on to the fifth way on how to spot fake Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail sneakers, we are going to check the rectangle-shaped stitching on the side of the real vs fake Off-White AJ4s.

In the fake vs real Off-White AJ4 Sail image above, we have pointed out how the stitching rectangle below the cage of the legit shoes is perfectly attached to the shoes, having no stitch out of place and looking just like a complete rectangle.

On the other hand, the fake shoes have their stitching waving down on the left side edge, and how it is also too thick on the left side.

To put it shortly, the fake shoes have their stitching below the cage lacking quality in terms of shape and weight, while the stitching on the authentic sneakers is perfectly attached to the shoes.

Step 6: Inspect the stitching on the tongue of your Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail

Since we were talking about the stitching at the two previous steps of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White AJ4 Sail, for the sixth step of the guide, we’re going to talk about the stitching as well, but this time on the tongue of the fake vs real OW AJ4 Sail shoes.

In the fake vs real Off-White AJ4 Sail image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their stitching on the tongue looking too thick and short, and not only that but also misaligned, as some of the stitches are crooked and placed too low.

On the other hand, the authentic OW AJ4s have their stitching attached to the shoes with care, so that no stitch would have other dimensions or placement when compared to the rest of the stitches.

Step 7: Analyze the bump on the heel of your OW Sail Air Jordan 4s

Moving on to the seventh way on how to spot fake Off-White Air Jordan 4, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Off-White AJ4 sneakers for the heel bump.

In the fake vs real Off-White AJ4 image above, we drew a green line in order to highlight the shape of the legit shoes’ shape, and a red line in order to show you the fake shoes’ shape.

As you may notice, the fake shoes have their line almost straight, as it doesn’t really curve at all.

On the other hand, the authentic OW AJ4 Sails have their line curvier, as it makes the heel bump more than the fake shoes’ heel side.

Step 8: Fake vs real Off-White Air Jordan 4 lacing cage pattern

As for the eighth step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Air Jordan 4, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Off-White AJ4 Sail WMNS sneakers for the pattern and shape of the cage.

In the real vs fake Off-White Air Jordan 4 image above, we have pointed out how the authentic shoes, at the top of the lacing cage, they have three narrow rectangles, and at the bottom, they have three squares.

On the other hand, the flaw on the fake shoes is that at the top, they have three wider rectangles instead of the authentic narrow rectangles.

Step 9: Real vs fake Off-White AJ4 Sail WMNS cross-stitching

As for the ninth step and the last step of our guide on how to spot fake Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail sneakers, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake OW AJ4 shoes for the curvy cross-stitching on the side of the shoes.

In the real vs fake Off-White AJ4 Sail image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their cross-stitching holes looking too tiny when compared to the stitches on the authentic shoes, which are bigger.
