If you’re looking to learn how to spot fake Off-White Vulcanized low sneakers, then wonder, this is the right place to learn that.

We have compiled this guide on how to spot fake Off-White Vulc low shoes that will teach you everything to have to know about these shoes.

All of the information throughout the guide on how to spot replica Off-White Vulcanized sneakers will be sorted within a few steps that will have reference real vs fake Off-White Vulc low images.

The images with the fake vs real Off-White Vulcanized sneakers will help you identify the flaws on the fake shoes easier, as well as see how must the legit shoes look like.

How to tell if Off-White Vulcanized are fake

The #1 way to spot fake Off-White Vulcanized shoes is to look at the medial text, on each shoe. Fake examples always have their text at the wrong size and font weight. All genuine Off-Whites must be flawless, meaning that they always have their text perfectly detailed, without any imperfections.

1. Medial text

1.1. Left shoe

  • The fake Off-White Vulc low pair has text too big and too thick.
  • Most noticeable if you look at the “VIRGIL ABLOH TM” text, which is always there on any release of the Vulc lows.

We’ve mentioned that last part because since the Vulc lows were released multiple times, you can see as in the image above how the inscriptions may differ from one pair to another.

Though, that doesn’t mean that the text shouldn’t be detailed in the same throughout the legitimate pairs.

Want the expert's opinion? Let our Off-White legit check your shoes:

1.2. Right shoe

  • The fake pair’s text is yet again flawed in terms of size and thickness.
  • The counterfeit Off-White Vulc low shoes have their “OFF-WHITE c/o VIRGIL ABLOH TM” text looking a little bit thinner than the text on the authentic shoes, which is thicker.
  • The “c” letter in a circle looks too thick in the fake shoes, while the authentic shoes have a thinner “c”.

2. Profile side

  • The fake Off-White Vulcanized shoes have their “OFF” text looking too thin.
  • Looking at the bottom left and right corners of the arrow “X” Off-White logo, the fake pair’s logo is too thin on the left corner, as well as too thick on the right corner.
  • The fake Off-Whites have their “c 2018” text thicker than the real one.
  • Also, the fake Off-White Vulc lows also have their text placed too high above the midsole.

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. “SHOELACES” print

  • The fake Off-Whites have their “SHOELACES” inscription looking too thin and it fades out of the laces.

The real “SHOELACES” text looks thicker and more defined, as it is perfectly printed on the laces, and how it isn’t fading out, unlike the replica OW pair’s text.

4. Shape

  • The replica Off-White Vulc low shoes have their shape narrower and slimmer than the shape of genuine shoes.

The authentic shoes have their shape much wider than the one on the fake shoes.

5. Interior tongue

  • The fake pair’s text is scratched and how it isn’t perfectly visible.

That would never happen on an authentic pair of Off-White Vucalnized shoes, so keep in mind that such errors often occur on replica shoes.

Shortlist: Tell fake Off-White Vulc Low

  1. Verify the medial text. The counterfeit-manufactured Off-White Vulcanized low shoes have their medial text in the wrong size and thickness
  2. Check the details on the side of your shoes, as the fake pairs often have their elements improperly shaped and positioned
  3. Examine the “SHOELACES” text on the side of your shoes, as the fake pairs always have their text improperly shaped
  4. Brief the shape of your shoes from the back, because the fake pairs often have their shape too narrow and slim
  5. Inspect the text inside the tongue of your shoes. Mostly, the fake pairs have their text scrapped.

There might be instances where you lack the time or patience to engage in an exhaustive authentication process while verifying the authenticity of your Off-White Vulc low shoes.
