How to spot fake Off-White Converse 2.0

The best way to spot fake Off-White Converse is to check the medial text. Fake prints are never placed at the right height, and they never have the right font-weight either.

1. Medial text

  • Authentic:
    1. The “CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR” text is bold and well-defined.
    2. The “Malden, Massachusetts USA” inscription has consistent font weight for each letter.
    3. The “c. 1917” text is bold and clear.
  • Fake:
    1. The “CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STAR” inscription appears too thin.
    2. Inconsistency in font weight is evident in the “Malden, Massachusetts USA” text. The word “Massachusetts” in particular is too thick.
    3. The “c. 1917” inscription is fainter, lacking the boldness seen on the genuine label.

2. Heel

  • Authentic:
    1. The “Chuck” text is bold, wider, and has well-defined letters.
    2. The word “CONVERSE” is thick and prominently displayed, making it clearly legible.
  • Fake:
    1. The “Chuck” inscription on the fake pair appears too thin and the letters seem narrower, giving it a boxy appearance.
    2. Similarly, the “CONVERSE” text is also too thin and narrow when compared to the authentic label.

Fun fact: Did you know that Converse is owned by Nike?

3. Insole

  • Authentic:
    1. The “Converse” inscription is more refined, with a thinner appearance.
    2. There’s a noticeable gap between each character and between the text and the star logo.
  • Fake:
    1. The “Converse” text on the replicas appears overly bold and thicker.
    2. The letters are too closely packed, and the star logo is too near the text.

4. Size tag

  • Authentic:
    1. The “MADE IN VIETNAM” and “FABRIQUE AU VIETNAM” inscriptions are neatly printed with a thinner appearance.
    2. The details provided at the bottom, such as “GENDER”, “UPPER”, “LINING”, and “OUTSOLE”, are more pronounced, bolder, and thicker.
  • Fake:
    1. The “MADE IN VIETNAM” and “FABRIQUE AU VIETNAM” texts are overly bold.
    2. Contrarily, the details at the bottom of the tag, like “GENDER”, “UPPER”, “LINING”, and “OUTSOLE”, are fainter and appear too thin.

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.

5. Perforations

  • Authentic:
    1. The two holes are located closer to the midsole, maintaining a consistent and standard distance.
  • Fake:
    1. The holes are situated too far from the midsole, which is a clear deviation from the authentic design.

6. Toe box

  • Authentic:
    1. The toe box has a distinctive and pronounced arch, characteristic of the Converse Chuck Taylor design.
  • Fake:
    1. The curvature of the toe box is present but not as pronounced.

Shortlist: Tell fake Off-White Converse (in 30 sec.)

  1. Inspect the Medial Text: On counterfeit Off-White x Converse Chuck Taylor shoes, the medial text often appears too wide with paint that is less defined. Additionally, the font-weight is typically off.
  2. Examine the Rear Heel Logo: When viewing from the back, fake pairs tend to have their text appear too thin and boxy, or overly narrow.
  3. Assess the Insoles: The “converse” text on the insoles of fake pairs is usually too thick.
  4. Review the Size Tag: Counterfeit versions often have text with incorrect font-weight on the size tag.
  5. Check Interior Side Holes: On fake pairs, the two holes on the interior side are often positioned too far from the midsole.
  6. Observe the Toe Box: The toe box on fake Off-White Converse 2.0 is often not arched enough.
