  • How to spot fakes

How to spot fake Revenge x Storm

You can spot fake Revenge x Storm sneakers quickly by examining the size tag.

It is often the most flawed element and a reliable indicator of authenticity issues.

1. Size tag

  • Authentic:
    1. The “x” in “Revenge x Storm” is of appropriate size and thickness.
    2. The “Men US” text utilizes a specific font and thickness.
    3. The US size number has the correct font weight.
    4. The “Made in China” text, especially the word “in”, is of correct size and thickness.
  • Fake:
    1. The “x” in “Revenge x Storm” appears too small and thin.
    2. The “Men US” text is in a different, thinner font than the authentic.
    3. The US size number has a different, thinner font weight.
    4. The “Made in China” text, especially the word “in”, appears smaller and thinner.

2. Heel

  • Authentic:
    1. The “OFF” text is appropriately sized and thicker.
    2. The “THE” characters are thinner, maintaining the correct proportions.
    3. The rear heel logo, particularly the “SHI” text, is thicker, while the “ITS” part is appropriately thin.
  • Fake:
    1. The “OFF” text appears thinner and smaller than the authentic version.
    2. The “THE” characters on the fake pairs are thicker than those on the authentic pairs.
    3. The “SHI” text in the rear heel logo is thinner on fake pairs, while the “ITS” part appears thicker than on authentic pairs.

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. Lightning

  • Authentic: Slim, less bulky lightning design.
  • Fake: Bulkier, more massive lightning design.

4. Tongue

  • Authentic:
    1. Thin “R”
    2. “V” in line with other characters
    3. Less curvy “E”
    4. Square bottom left corner on “N”.
  • Fake:
    1. Thick “R”
    2. Oversized “V”
    3. Curvy “E”
    4. Sharp bottom left corner on “N”.

5. Insole

  • Authentic: Defined and readable sole text with visible space between “R” and “M” in “STORM”.
  • Fake: Less defined sole text; almost no space between “R” and “M” in “STORM”, making text less readable.

Shortlist: Verify your pair

  1. Examine the size tag. Fake sneakers often have a thicker and different font.
  2. Check the rear heel logo. Counterfeit Revenge x Storm sneakers may have inconsistent text thickness on the heel logo.
  3. Analyze the lightning logo on the side. Replicas tend to have bulkier lightning logos compared to authentic RxS sneakers.
  4. Inspect the tongue’s print. Fakes may have font-weight and height issues on the tongue’s “REVENGE” text.
  5. Examine the text on the soles. Counterfeits often have unreadable text on the soles, while genuine pairs have easily readable text.

You might not have the time to go through all the detailed steps mentioned above.
