The Nike x Travis Scott SB Dunk presents a unique bandana patchwork with the “Cactus Jack Records” text engraved around the shoes. The greatest part about these is that they have two layers!
What does that mean? Well, once you start skating these Travis Scott SBs and you start ripping and scratching them, you’ll notice how they turn into a brown SB Dunk with a lightning-alike design all over. Pay for 1 design and you get two.
You are in the right place if you wish to know how to spot the fake vs real Travis Scott Nike Dunks.
In fact, we are here today to teach you how to spot fake Travis Scott Dunk sneakers in six simple steps with our ultimate guide.
Also, we would like to mention that we are going to refer to the Nike x Travis Scott Dunk sneakers to just TS Dunks.
Now that you’ve got the main idea of what we are about to talk about today, let’s get to the 6 steps on how to spot fake Travis Scott Dunk shoes.
The fastest way to spot fake Travis Scott SB Dunk Low sneakers is to check the sneakers from the rear side for any font-weight or stitching flaws.
Most of the time, the counterfeit Nike x Travis Scott manufacturers mistake a few details on the rear side of the sneakers due to the inferior quality of the materials they use, compared to the materials of the legit Travis Dunks.
As we said previously, we consider the rear side of the sneakers to be one of the most reliable signs of a fake Travis Scott SB Dunk Low pair.
First of all, let’s have a quick look at the real vs fake Nike SB Dunk Travis Scott images in order to analyze the flaws on the fake Dunks easier.
In the fake vs real Cactus Jack Dunks image above, we have pointed out the fact that, first of all, the replica Travis Scott Dunks pair has a fatter and a wider overall shape than the shape of the authentic Travis Scott Dunks.
Besides, we have pointed out the fact that the patch with the “NIKE” print is smaller and less large than the authentic patch.
You can easily notice how the authentic Travis Scott Dunks have their “NIKE” patch longer than the Swooshes from the inner and the exterior sides which meet together at the back of the sneakers.
On the other hand, the counterfeit Travis Scott Dunks have their “NIKE” patch as long as where the two Swooshes meet, while the legit sneakers have the patch longer than the point where the Swooshes meet.
Then, on the “NIKE” text on the patch, we have pointed out the fact that the replica Travis Scott Dunks have the letters misplaced, as the letter “E” is placed lower than the rest of the letters on the fake sneakers.
On the legit Travis Scott Dunk pairs, all of the letters are placed in the same position, and you will never see them placed as on the replica TS Dunks exampled above in the real vs fake Travis Dunks images.
Not only that, but the counterfeit Travis Dunk sneakers’ “NIKE” text is also looking smaller and placed in a more italic (angled) way than the authentic Travis Scott Dunks’ rear “NIKE” text.
As for the last spot that we will inspect on the real vs fake Travis Scott SB Dunks on the rear side, we are talking about the stitches below the “NIKE” patch.
On the replica Travis Scott Dunks, you will see pretty much all the time these stitches being way thinner than they have to be on the authentic sneakers.
Besides, the fake Travis Dunks are also common to have the stitches below the rear “NIKE” patch looking longer than the authentic shoes’ rear stitches.

As for the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike x Travis Scott SB Dunk Low sneakers, we are going to look at the placement of the Nike Swoosh logo on the exterior side of the real vs fake SB Travis Scott Dunk sneakers.
In the fake vs real SB Dunk Travis Scott images above, we have pointed out how the fake Travis Scott Dunk sneakers have their Nike Swoosh logo placed a lot lower than the Swoosh on the authentic sneakers.
You can easily spot a fake Nike SB Travis Scott pair by inspecting the Nike Swoosh logo, which the fake shoes will have too close to the midsoles.

As for the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Travis Scott Dunks, we are going to analyze the real vs fake Travis Scott Dunks on the interior and the exterior patterns.
First of all, we are going to inspect the real vs fake Travis Dunks on the interior side, and then, we are going to move on the exterior side’s pattern.
As always, let’s have a quick look at the fake vs real Nike SB Travis Scott Dunk images in order to legit check the Travis Scott Dunks easier.
In the fake vs real Travis Scott SB Dunk images above, we have pointed out the fact that the paisley pellets all around the interior side of the sneakers appear to be a lot less opaque than the authentic shoes’ pellets on the inner side.
On the fake sneakers, you will see almost every time the paisley pellets on the interior side of the Travis Scott Dunks being coloured as grey, as in this case, instead of the authentic white colour. The fake sneakers have this problem due to the opacity, as we’ve mentioned above.
Now that you know how to legit check Travis Scott Dunks by inspecting the interior side’s pattern, let’s move to the exterior side of the sneakers and inspect the real vs fake Travis Scott Dunks by the exterior pattern too.
In the fake vs real Nike SB Travis Scott images above, we have pointed out the fact that, on the fake Travis SB Dunk sneakers, the pattern is almost totally different than on the legit Dunks.
First of all, the toe box of the replica Travis Scott SB Dunks is coloured way lighter than the toe box area of the authentic Travis Scott SB Dunks, which is coloured a bit darker.
Then, the middle side of the replica Travis Scott SB Dunks is missing a lot of the brown patches, while on the legit sneakers, you can easily notice how there are more brown patches too.
Of course, this may differ from one pair to another, but you can always notice a fake Travis Scott SB Dunk pair by the fact that there are no darker patches and just the lighter ones.
That means that, on the authentic SB Dunks, you will always see darker coloured patches too, while the fake Travis SB Dunks sneakers will miss a lot of these on the exterior pattern.

As for the fourth step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike SB Travis Scott Dunks, we are going to analyze the exterior side of the tongue in order to learn how to differentiate between the real vs fake Travis Scott Dunks.
In the Travis Scott SB Dunks fake vs real images above, we have pointed out the obvious fact that the fake Travis Scott Dunks have their tongue totally differently coloured than the legit ones.
In fact, the authentic Travis Scott Dunk sneakers have their tongue coloured as a beige/light-brown, while the replica Travis Scott Dunks have their tongue coloured yellow.
Besides, we are going to talk about the Cactus Jack logo too, as you may have seen in the real vs fake Travis Scott Dunk images above, we have pointed out in the text too.
The counterfeit Nike SB Travis Scott Dunks have the fake “Cactus Jack” print looking totally thinner than the print on the authentic sneakers.
Besides that, you will easily notice how the fake Travis Scott Dunks have the first letter “C” in the “Cactus” text looking crooked and “wider” than the authentic Travis Dunks’ letter “C”.

The next few steps are still reliable signs of authenticity but are for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the steps we’ve explained above to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.
Now, we are going to move to the front-lower side of the sneakers, and we will analyze the real vs fake Travis Scott Dunks for the overall shape of the toe box.
In the real vs fake Nike SB Travis Scott Dunk images above, we have pointed out how the fake Travis Scott Dunks appear to have their toe box looking “over-inflated” and thicker than the authentic shoes’ toe box.
The authentic sneakers will never have their toe box looking as thick as in the real vs fake Travis Scott Dunk images above, but it will never be too thin either, as there are some examples on the fake market like that too.
As for the sixth and the last step of the guide on how to spot replica Nike SB Travis Scott sneakers, we are going to analyze the colour of the inner Nike Swoosh colour on the real vs fake Travis Scott Dunk sneakers.
In the real vs fake Nike SB Travis Scott images above, we have pointed out the fact that the replica Travis Scott SB Dunk sneakers have their interior Nike Swoosh colour too concentrated.
The authentic Travis Scott SB Dunks have their Nike Swoosh on the interior side coloured lighter than the fake sneakers’ Swoosh, which is coloured as the very nuanced hot pink.
