If you are here because you want to know how to spot the fake Off-White zip ties, then you are in the right place because we have created this article which teaches you how to spot fake Off-White zip ties for every colour that has been released.

The zip tie is the plastic piece which comes attached to every brand-new Off-White item, and since there are a lot of releases and versions, the zip ties are coloured in the following: red, light blue, neon green, white and black.

Today, we are here to help you in order to differentiate between the real vs fake Off-White zip ties.

How to spot fake Off-White zip ties

Most commonly, the Off-White zip ties will have their printed text on the long side of the tie, and then, the rest is just details.

The best way to spot fake Off-White zip ties is to analyze the “Off-White TM” text on the frontal side of the zip tie because, in most of the cases, the fake Off-White zip ties have this text looking different than the one on the authentic OW zip ties.

Now, we are going to separate the real vs fake Off-White zip ties from the first to the last colour with a heading for each colour. Let’s begin with the red colourway, since it is the most common.

The red Off-White zip tie

As we said previously, we are now going to start inspecting the fake vs real Off-White red zip tie, and more precisely, now we have to inspect the text on the frontal area of the OW zip tie.

In fact, the fake Off-White’s zip tie has the “ZIP TIE” text looking less visible than the one on the authentic zip tie, and that’s obvious with the naked eye. The authentic zip tie’s “ZIP TIE” text is more visible than the one on the fake tie.

Then, on the “Off-White TM” text, the same flaw is visible because the fake “WHITE” print on the zip tie isn’t as visible as the one on the legit zip tie.

Now, let’s move on to the real vs fake Off-White red zip tie’s nails on the side of the tie. First of all, let’s have a look at the fake vs real OW zip tie images below, and then let us explain the flaws on the fake zip tie.

Firstly, we have used the green line for the fake zip tie in order to let you know that the “OFF-WHITE TM C/O NIKE” print is misplaced on the fake zip tie because it placed crooked.

About the nails, the fake Off-White red zip tie’s two circles on the side of the zip tie appear to be a lot more textured and highlighted than the nails on the side of the authentic OW zip tie.
