Without any further ado, let’s see how to check the fake vs real Gucci Rhyton.
How to tell if your Gucci Rhyton are real or fake
You can tell if your Gucci Rhyton sneakers are real or fake by looking at the profile stitching. Fakes have too much empty space between the stitches and panels on the side of the shoes.

“Why?”, you may ask. Because replica Gucci Rhyton sneakers are usually made with less arched stitches, less defined and poorer quality stitches.
In the front, the fake Gucci Rhyton pair has stitches with too much arching on the edges, as they look too curvy.
