2. Swoosh

  • Authentic:
    • The Swoosh logo is larger.
    • Stitching around the edges of the Nike Swoosh logo is longer and is evenly placed not just on the Swoosh but also on the surrounding areas of the sneakers.
  • Fake:
    • Swoosh logo appears smaller.
    • Stitching around the edges of the Swoosh is shorter and is placed only on the Swoosh, not extending to the rest of the sneakers.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

3. Toe box

  • Authentic:
    • The toe box area is more curvy.
  • Fake:
    • Toe box is lower and appears less curvy.

4. Orange tab

  • Authentic:
    • Stitching on orange tab and the Swoosh is dark green, almost cyan.
  • Fake:
    • Stitching is light blue or green, not matching the authentic pairs’ color.

5. “FOAM”

Also seen in the same place on the Off-White Hyperdunk.

  • Authentic:
    • Quotation marks are thicker and longer.
    • Letter “A” in “FOAM” is sharp and well-defined.
  • Fake:
    • Quotation marks are thinner and shorter.
    • Letter “A” in “FOAM” appears curvier and thicker on the bottom left leg, lacking sharpness and definition.

Shortlist: Legit check your Off-White Zoom Fly

Go to this list whenever you don’t have enough time to visit read the whole guide:

  1. Examine the medial text on both the left and right shoes. In most cases, fake sneakers will have thicker or thinner text compared to the authentic counterparts.
  2. Verify the Nike Swoosh logo on the side of the sneakers. Counterfeit OW Zoom Fly sneakers often have shorter stitching on the Swoosh, distinct from the longer stitching on genuine pairs.
  3. Analyze the toe box area of the shoes. Fake sneakers tend to have a less lifted and angled toe box compared to the authentic OW Zoom Fly’s design.
  4. Inspect the stitching above and on the orange tab. Legitimate shoes consistently feature dark-green stitching, while replica OW Zoom Fly pairs use light-green or blue stitching.
  5. Examine the “FOAM” text on the midsole. Fake shoes often have thinner and boxier quotation marks, whereas authentic sneakers display longer and thicker quotation marks. Additionally, check for the sharpness of the letters in the “FOAM” text, as genuine sneakers have well-defined letters, while fakes may have curvier or rounded edges.
