If you are here to learn how to spot fake Off-White Zoom Fly sneakers, you are in the right place.
We have prepared this guide on how to check the real vs fake Off-White Zoom Fly sneakers with just ten simple spots to look at for it to be easier when you authenticate these sneakers.
It is worth mentioning that we are going to refer to the Off-White Zoom Fly sneakers in the simple form of OW Zoom Fly sneakers.
Now that you know what we’re talking about, let’s get you to the proper real vs fake Off-White Zoom Fly sneakers.
First of all, we’d like to mention that we consider the medial text on both the left and the right shoes being the most reliable spot in order to check the authenticity of an Off-White Zoom Fly pair since replica Off-White manufacturers never manage to get this text right.
As we said previously, we consider the medial text being one of the most reliable signs of a fake OW Zoom Fly pair of sneakers.
We are going to analyze both the left and the right shoes and the text on these, but first, we are going to start with the left shoe.
First of all, you can see how the “TM” text is looking a lot boxier on the replica OW Zoom Fly pair, and even more, that makes it look smaller than the “TM” print on the authentic Zoom Fly sneakers.
Then, the same flaw applies to the “NIKE” text which is one word further away from the previous text.
In fact, the fake “NIKE” print is smaller and looks a lot boxier. Also, you can notice how the fake letter “N” is thicker than the character on the authentic Off-White Zoom Fly sneakers.
Then, the comma (“,”) flaw is commonly met on the replica Off-White x Nike pairs. In fact, the fake Off-White Zoom Fly pairs most of the time have a round comma, while the authentic pairs have a square comma. By round and square, we refer to the top side of the character.
Also, the comma on the fake Zoom Fly sneakers is looking a lot thinner than the character on the authentic OW Zoom Fly shoes.
Moving next to the letter “O” in the “Oregon” text, the counterfeit Off-White Zoom Fly sneakers have their letter “O” looking a lot thinner and smaller than the letter on the authentic sneakers.
Lastly, on the “c. 2017” text, the replica Off-White Zoom Fly sneakers seem to be a lot thicker than the print on the authentic sneakers.
First of all, let’s see the reference real vs fake OW Zoom Fly comparison pictures, and then, let us explain the flaws on the replica Off-White Zoom Fly pairs.
Now, on the right shoe, you can see how the font used for the “TM” text is different on the fake OW Zoom Fly sneakers, and on the legit shoes.
Not even the font is different, but the “TM” text is also a lot thicker than the text on the fake shoes.
Then, the “NIKE” text is also looking a lot thinner on the fake sneakers than the text on the authentic OW Zoom Fly, and that makes it look a lot smaller on the fake shoes.
Then, the same comma flaw from the left shoe’s medial text applies to the right shoe’s text as well, and in fact, the replica Zoom Fly’s comma is a lot thinner than the authentic pairs’ comma.
Almost to the end of the medial text, the “USA” text is also looking thinner and smaller on the fake OW Zoom Fly than the legit shoe’s “USA” print.
Lastly, the “c. 2017” text on the fake sneakers has a lot more space between the numbers than the space on the authentic OW Zoom Fly sneakers.
In fact, the legit shoes’ text has less space between the numbers in the “c. 2017” print.
As for the second step of the fake vs real Off-White Zoom Fly legit check guide, we are going to inspect the Nike Swoosh logo placed on the side of the sneakers.
As you can see in the real vs fake OW Zoom Fly images above, first of all, the replica OW Zoom Fly sneakers have their Swoosh looking a lot smaller than the authentic OW Zoom Fly’s Swoosh logo.
Then, you can see the stitching around the edges of the Nike Swoosh logo on both the real vs fake OW Zoom Fly sneakers.
The difference between these stitches around the edges of the Nike Swoosh logo is a lot shorter than the stitching around the authentic OW Zoom Fly’s Swoosh.
The legit sneakers have their stitching going along the Nike Swoosh logo and it is placed even on the sneakers themselves, and the fake shoes have their stitching placed only on the Swoosh, and not also on the rest of the sneakers.
Now, for the third step of the authenticity check process of the Off-White Zoom Fly, we will have to inspect the toe box of the real vs fake OW Zoom Fly sneakers.
As you can see in the OW Zoom Fly fake vs real images above, the replica OW Zoom Fly sneakers have their toe box looking a lot lower than the toe box of the legit sneakers.
What we mean is that the fake Off-White Zoom Fly sneakers have their toe box area looking less curvy than the toe box of the authentic sneakers.
Two steps ago we told you how to spot the fake Off-White Zoom Fly sneakers by looking at the orange tab that’s located on the Nike Swoosh logo.
As you can see in the fake vs real Off-White Zoom Fly image above, the counterfeit Zoom Flys have the coloured stitching on both the orange tab and the Swoosh.
The difference on the stitching is that the authentic OW Zoom Fly sneakers have their stitching coloured as dark green, almost to cyan.
On the other hand, the fake Off-White sneakers have their orange tab coloured as light blue or green, instead of being coloured as the authentic pairs.
As for the fifth and the last step of the real vs fake Off-White Zoom Fly legit check guide, we’ll have to go a bit on the midsole and analyze the “FOAM” text.
As you can see in the fake vs real OW Zoom Fly images above, the counterfeit Off-White sneakers have their quotation marks (” “) looking a lot thinner, and not only that, but they even look shorter than the authentic ones.
On the other hand, the authentic Off-White Zoom Fly sneakers have their quotation marks looking thicker and longer than the fake shoes’ marks.
Lastly, you can see how the replica OW Zoom Fly sneaker have the letter “A” in the “FOAM” print looking curvier and thicker n the bottom left leg, while on the authentic pairs, this character (and all of them) is sharp and well-defined.
