You are in the right place if you wish to know how to see the fake vs real Valentino Rockrunner sneakers.

In fact, we are here today to teach you how to spot fake Valentino Rockrunner sneakers in just seven simple steps.

Now that you’ve got the main idea of what we are about to talk about today, let’s get to the seven steps on how to spot fake Valentino Rockrunne sneakers.

How to spot fake Valentino Rockrunner sneakers

It may seem a bit hard for you to check the authenticity of a Valentino Rockrunner pair of sneakers, but in reality, it is really simple, since we’ve sorted it all out in this real vs fake Valentino Rockrunner article.

And for it to be easier, we’ve arranged everything with the side-by-side real vs fake Valentino Rockrunner pairs.

Also, we would like to mention how the stitching on the middle site of your Valentino Rockrunners is one of the best spots to look at firstly when checking the real vs fake Valentino Rockrunner.

Step 1: Verify the stitching on your Valentino Rockrunner

As we’ve said previously, we are firstly going to analyze the stitching on the centre part of your Valentino Rockrunner, because it is one of the most reliable signs of a fake pair of sneakers.

First of all, let’s see the stitching on the toe box site. Taking a quick look in the picture above, you’d easily notice how the fake Valentino Rockrunner pair has the stitching on the toe box too curved.

By curved, we mean that the stitching is too angled and the lines turn too much of a sudden on the fake Valentino Rockrunner pair.

Now, let’s proceed to the stitching a bit to the left, on the middle side of the shoes. Looking at the real vs fake Rockrunner images, you can notice how, again, the stitching is too curvy and less sharp.

The authentic stitching on this site looks sharper than the stitching on the fake Valentino Rockrunner pair.

Besides, you can also notice how this fake Rockrunner sneaker has the middle part, the one below the lace holes, looking less wavy than the legit one.

Going to the last hand pointer, the most left one, you can notice how the stitching, this time, looks too sharp on the fake Rockrunner pair. The authentic stitching looks curvier than the fake one this time.

Step 2: Analyze the tongue tag “VALENTINO GARAVANI” text

Now that you know how to check the fake shoes’ stitching, let’s proceed to the text on the tongue tag.

For this step, you’ll mostly have to analyze how the text is placed on your Valentino Rockrunner sneakers.

Basically, by looking at the fake Valentino Rockrunner pair, you can notice how the “VALENTINO” text is too small.

Being too small, it results in that the fake “VALENTINO” text is placed worse than the real one. That’s because the legit text touches the edges of the tag, while the fake one doesn’t.

Also, you can see with the naked eye how the fake “VALENTINO GARAVANI” text is too thin, and, at the same time, the fake text has poorer quality in stitching.

Step 3: Check the toe box suede stitching shape on your Rockrunner

As for the third step of our real vs fake Valentino Rockrunner comparison guide, we’ll have a quick look at how the suede on the toe box is stitching in.

As you can see, it is the same problem as the stitching, even on the suede on the toe box.

The flaw on the fake Valentino Rockrunner is that the shape of the suede on the toe box appears to be too curved and round, as the line of stitching curves too much out of a sudden.

Meanwhile, the authentic Valentino Rockrunner has its toe box suede stitching looking less round than the fake one.

The legit Rockrunner pair has its stitching curvy, but on the bottom side, where it actually curves, it is less round than the fake one.

Step 4: Verify the spikes on the rear side of your Valentino Rockrunners

Now, let’s proceed to the next step of our real vs fake Valentino Rockrunner guide, which is to verify the spikes on the rear side of your sneakers. As always, let’s see the real vs fake Rockrunner comparison pictures:

Taking a look at both the real vs fake Rockrunner images above, you can notice how the fake Valentino sneakers have these spikes too long.

The legit Valentino Rockrunner has these spikes less long than the fake ones, and you can check this by how much distance is it from the suede on the rear side to the spikes themselves.

In the picture with the authentic Rockrunners, there is a bit of a distance between the rear suede and the spikes.

In the picture with the replica Rockrunners, you can see how there is no distance between the suede and the spikes, as the spikes finish where the suede finishes too.

Step 5: Inspect the insoles of your Valentino Rockrunner sneakers

For the fifth step of our authentication process, we’ll go inside the Valentino Rockrunners and we will analyze the elements inside there.

Fake vs Real Valentino Sneakers

As you can see in the real vs fake Rockrunner pictures above, we’ve pointed out how the fake Valentino Rockrunner sneakers miss the “MADE IN ITALY” text, while this text is present on the legit Valentino pair of sneakers.

Please keep in mind how this spot isn’t the most reliable one when checking the authenticity of used Valentino Rockrunner sneakers, as the text may have been washed, taken off, or it just isn’t there at all.

But on the other hand, if you are checking unused Valentino Rockrunner sneakers and the “MADE IN ITALY” text isn’t there, then you are most likely looking at a fake Valentino Rockrunner pair.

Step 6: Check the nuance of the colours used on the box

Out of the Valentino Rockrunner sneakers, again, we will have a look at the packaging that they come in.

As you can see above, the fake Valentino Rockrunner box has the camo colours looking too vibrant, while the legit box has darker colours.

Step 7: Inspect the tongue tag colour of the Valentino Rockrunner in the black colourway

As for the seventh and the last step of our real vs fake Valentino Rockrunner guide, we’ve prepared a step that’s mainly for the black colourway.

Once again, we would like to mention how this step is only for the black colourway of the Valentino Rockrunners.

Now, taking a look at the real vs fake Valentino Rockrunner images above, you can notice how the legit pair has the tongue tag black, and the fake pair has the tongue tag looking olive green. This tag has to be black.
