Are you looking to learn how to spot the fake Nike x Off-White “THE TEN” Hyperdunk 2017 sneakers?

If so, you are in the right place to learn how to authenticate the Off-White Hyperdunk sneakers.

In this guide on how to spot fake Off-White Hyperdunks, we are going to tell you the eight best spots to look at in order to know whether you have a real vs fake OW Hyperdunk pair.

So as to make the Off-White Hyperdunk authenticity check process easier, we are going to link reference fake vs real Off-White Hyperdunk images along with each step of our Off-White Hyperdunk legit check guide.

The fastest way to spot fake Off-White Hyperdunks is to check the size tag inside each shoe, as the fake shoes never have their inscriptions on the little piece of paper correctly font-weighted. Mostly, the fake Off-White Hyerdunk 2017 shoes have different thicknesses for their characters and symbols on the size tag.

How to spot fake Nike x Off-White “THE TEN” Hyperdunk 2017

Step 1: Real vs fake Off-White Hyperdunk size tag

As we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the size tag as the most reliable sign of authenticity, when speaking of the fake vs real Off-White Hyperdunks.

Therefore, this is why we are starting the Off-White Hyperdunk legit check guide with the size tag.

We are first going to have a quick look at the reference real vs fake Off-White Hyperdunk image below, and then, we’ll explain the flaws on the fake Hyperdunk  Off-White shoes.

Now that you’ve had a look at the reference fake vs real Hyperdunk Off-White image above, let’s move on to the flaws on the fake shoes.

First of all, looking at the text that indicates the style code of these shoes, which is AJ4758-100 (in the middle of the size tag), we have noticed how the fake shoes have this text with multiple font-weights.

By that, we mean that the fake shoes have their letters at different font-weights – the letter “J” is too thick, and the rest of the characters are too thin when compared to the real deal.

On the other hand, the legit Off-White Hyperdunks have all of their characters in the style code at the same font-weight, not having any letter being either too thick or too thin.

At the same level as the style-code, but on the right side’s edge of the size tag, we have to check the characters in the text which indicates the date of manufacturing the sneakers.

Looking at the replica Off-White Hyperdunks, we have noticed how they have their date print looking too thick and too boxy, as it is too small.

Then, the legitimate Nike x Off-White Hyperdunks have their date of manufacturing text looking thicker and also bigger than the one found on the fake shoes.

Lastly, one line lower, we are going to talk about the two rows of text which tell you the country where the shoes were manufactured in, which is Vietnam.

The fake shoes have their “MADE IN VIETNAM / FABRIQUE AU VIETNAM” text looking too thin, while the authentic OW Hyperdunks have their text thicker.

With this being said for the size tag of the fake vs real Nike x Off-White Hyperdunk pairs, let’s move on to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Hyperdunks.

Step 2: Fake vs real Off-White Hyperdunk medial text

As for the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Hyperdunks, we will have to check out the real vs fake OW Hyperdunk pairs for the medial text.

The medial text is another important spot that we recommend to check since it is ranked as the second step of our guide.

  • The left shoe’s medial text

We are going to being by looking at the medial text on the left shoe of the fake vs real Off-White Hyperdunk pairs, and then, we will also analyze the text found on the right shoe as well.

Now, as you may know, we are first going to have a quick look at the reference fake vs real Hyperdunk Off-White 2017 image below.

off-white hyperdunk real vs fake

In the image containing the fake vs real Off-White Hyperdunks above, we have pointed out how the replica OW Hyperdunks have their medial text mainly poorly font-weighted.

On the first row of text at the top of the shoes, we have pointed out in the fake vs real OW Hyperdunk 2017 image above how the fake shoes have their “TM” text looking too thin, too big, and also improperly kerned between the letters.

The kerning problem is caused by the fact that the fake shoes’ letters have too much space between, while the two letters on the authentic shoes have a smaller amount of space between the letters in the “TM” text.

Up next and in the same line of text, we have spotted how the fake pair’s “NIKE” text appears to also be too thin, too big and baldy kerned between the letters.

One line lower, we have the “HYPERDUNK 2017” text, which on the fake shoes, it appears to have multiple font-weights and with too much space between the letters, but also being too thick only on the numbers “2” and “0”.

We have especially pointed out at how the fake shoes have too much space between the letters “D” and “K”, but also at how the “PER” letters are also a bit thicker than what they are supposed to be like.

Besides the characters which are too thick (highlighted in the two paragraphs above), the rest of the characters are too thin on the fake shoes.

On the other hand, the authentic Off-White Hyperdunks have the same font-weight and kerning not only for the “HYPERDUNK 2017” text but for each symbol found on the medial text.

Then, looking at the letter “B” in the “Beaverton” text, we have pointed out in the fake vs real OW Hyperdunk image above how it is too thin and also how it uses a different font than the one found on the legit shoes.

Lastly, the “c. 2017” text has two flaws. First of all, the “c.” print appears to be too thin and curvy, and then, the whole “c. 2017” print has too much space between its symbols.

Once again, all of the legit pairs must have the same font-weight and amount of kerning between their characters.

With this being said for the medial text on the left shoe, let’s move on to the text found on the right shoe of the fake vs real OW Hyperdunk 2017 pairs.

  • The right shoe’s medial text

Now, in order to properly see each detail, let’s see the reference fake vs real Hyperdunk Off-White image below.

off-white hyperdunk fake vs real

In the image with the fake vs real Off-White Hyperdunks above, you can see how the fake pair’s “TM” text is too thick.

Then, the “for” print on the fake Off-White Hyperdunk pair is too thin and has too much space between the letters, and on the authentic pair, the “for” text is thicker and has less space between its letters.

At the same time, on the same line of text, the thickness flaw applies to the “NIKE” text as well, which is too thick on the fake pair.

Looking at the fake pair again, we have pointed out how it has the “Oregon” and at the “USA” words, we have pointed out how the fake pair has its letters looking too thin, and how the legit pair has its letters thicker.

Lastly, the “c. 2017” text on the fake Off-White Hyperdunk pair also has its text with too much space between but also looking too thin when compared to the letters found on the legit pair which are thicker and have the same space between.

Step 3: Check the text on the insoles of your Off-White Hyperdunks

As for the third way on how to authenticate Off-White Hyperdunks, we are going to have a look at the insoles of the sneakers, specifically at the “THE TEN” text.

Now, let’s have a quick look at the reference fake vs real Off-White Hyperdunk 2017 image below.

how to spot fake ow hyperdunk

In the fake vs real Off-White Hyperdunk image above, we have pointed out how the replica OW Hyperdunks have their “THE TEN” text looking irregular.

By that, we mean that the fake shoes’ insole “THE TEN” text is too thin and its sticks which craft the letters are waving.

On the other hand, the text found on the authentic sneakers is thicker and more defined, as all of the sticks which craft the letters are properly and straight shaped.

Another flaw with the fake shoes’ “THE TEN” text is that it is too tall and “stretched out”, while the text found on the legit shoes is smaller and boxier.

Step 4: Verify your Off-White Hyperdunks from the rear side

For the fourth method on how to authenticate Off-White Hyperdunks, we are going to check out the real vs fake Off-White Hyperdunks from the rear side.

real vs fake off-white hyperdunk

In the fake vs real Off-White Hyperdunk image above, we have pointed out how the replica OW Hyperdunk sneakers have their stitching looking too thick and too long.

On the other hand, all of the stitches on both the upper and the middle side of the shoes are thinner, smaller, and boxier than the ones found on the replica OW Hyperdunks.

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: Analyze the shoes for the stitching over the orange tab

Going to the fifth method on how to authenticate Nike x Off-White Hyperdunk shoes, we are going to check out the fake vs real OW Hyperdunks for the stitching over the orange tab.

In the image containing the fake vs real Off-White Hyperdunks above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their blue stitching looking too thick on the left and the right edges of the orange tab, and in the middle, looking too thin.

Moving to the authentic Off-White Hyperdunks, we have pointed out in the real vs fake OW Hyperdunk image above how the legit pair has its stitching at the same weight all over the orange tab.

Step 6: Real vs fake Off-White Hyperdunk “FOAM” midsole text

Proceeding to the sixth method on how to spot fake Off-White Hyperdunks, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Off-White Hyperdunk pairs for the “FOAM” text on the midsole of the shoes.

Even though the differences might not be so clear, if you look closely, you can notice in the real vs fake OW Hyperdunk image above how the fake shoes have their “FOAM” text looking too thin.

At the same time, the fake Off-White Hyperdunks have their quotation marks (“ “) with too much space between, and also being too short, while the authentic shoes have less space between, and also being longer than the fake shoes’ marks.

Step 7: Inspect the “SHOELACES” text on your Off-White Hyperdunks

Going to the seventh step of the guide on how to authenticate Off-White Hyperdunks, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake OW Hyperdunks for the “SHOELACES” text printed over the laces.

In the image with the real vs fake Off-White Hyperdunks above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their “SHOELACES” text looking too thin.

Then, looking at the authentic Off-White sneakers, we have pointed out how they have their text looking thicker and more defined than the fake shoes’ text.

Another flaw visible with the fake sneakers’ “SHOELACES” text is that they have their tex placed too far away from the aglet.

The authentic Off-White Hyperdunk sneakers have their “SHOELACES” text placed closer to the aglet of the laces.

Little details like the “SHOELACES” text matter when you want to verify the authenticity of an Off-White Hyperdunk pair, so keep in mind to check your shoes even for such little details.

Step 8: Fake vs real Off-White Hyperdunk box label

Lastly, going to the eighth step of the guide on how to spot fake Off-White Hyperdunk shoes, we are going to have a look at the box label of the fake vs real OW Hyperdunk pairs.

In the image with the Off-White Hyperdunk real vs fake pairs above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their prints too thin.

On the other hand, all of the printings at which we have placed the hand-emoji pointers in the Off-White Hyperdunk real vs fake image above have their characters looking thicker and more defined than the ones on the fake box label.
