Wondering how to spot fake vs real Revenge x Storm (the Vans lookalike) sneakers?
Whether you are a sneakerhead or not, you want to ensure that when buying the Revenge x Storm, you know whether you are looking at an authentic or a fake Revenge x Storm pair.
That is why we have created this fake vs real Revenge x Storm sneakers comparison embedded with images that will help you identify and differentiate a fake sneaker from the authentic ones.
We would like to mention that in this fake vs real Revenge x Storm legit check guide, we will also refer to Revenge x Storm as RxS.
We’d like to mention that we consider the size tag of the Revenge x Storm sneakers as the most reliable sign of a fake pair because it is most of the time the most flawed element of the Revenge x Storm sneakers.
Just as a tip, not only on the Revenge x Storm sneakers the size tag is the most major flaw, but it is even on almost every counterfeit sneaker pair.
As for the first step of the fake vs real Revenge x Storm sneakers legit check guide, we are going to inspect the size tag, because as we said previously, we consider the size tag as one of the most reliable signs of a fake Revenge x Storm pair.
As you can see in the fake vs real Revenge x Storm image above, we have pointed out the fact that the “x” in the “Revenge x Storm” is looking too small and too thin compared to the authentic Revenge x Storm’s character.
Then, moving on to the second line of text on the Revenge x Storm size tag, you can see how the “Men US” text is using a totally different font from the authentic sneakers’ print, as the fake shoes’ text looks a lot thinner than it has to be.
Then, on the number of the US size, which in this case it is 8 for the authentic sneakers, and 8.5 for the fake ones, you can see how the characters have, again, a different font weight, as the replica Revenge x Storm’s US number of the size looks a lot thinner than the authentic one.
Lastly on the size tag, on the “Made in China” text, it is visible how the fake Revenge x Storm sneakers have the word “in” looking smaller and thinner than the text on the authentic sneakers, which is the same flaw from the first flaw on the letter “x” in the “Revenge x Storm” print.

As for the second step of the fake vs real Revenge x Storm legit check guide, we’ll have to flip the sneakers to the rear heel side of them and inspect the little Revenge x Storm logo that’s placed on the midsole.
As you can see in the fake vs real Revenge x Storm image above, the differences are easily noticeable between the fake vs real RxS sneakers.
First of all, in the “OFF” print, you can see how the text looks absolutely thinner and smaller than the authentic “OFF” text.
Then, on the print that says “THE”, you can see how the authentic characters are thinner than the fake ones, which makes the counterfeit Revenge x Storm’s “THE” print look a lot thicker than it has to be.
Lastly, for the rear heel logo, you can see how the first side of the text, and we mean the “SHI’ text, looks a lot thinner on the fake sneakers than the print on the legit ones, and the rest of the text, and that is the “ITS” text, looks thicker than it has to be on the legit Revenge x Storm pairs.
As for the third step of the Revenge x Storm real vs fake guide, we are going to move to the side of the sneakers, and inspect the lightning.
We have pointed out in the fake vs real Revenge x Storm images above how, on the fake RxS sneakers, the lightning is looking bulkier and more massive than the one on the legit sneakers.
Basically, the authentic Revenge x Storm lightning appears to be slimmer and less bulky than the counterfeit sneakers’ lightning, and we have pointed out this fact on the middle and the rear side of the lightning.
Now, we will have to move on to the tongue of the Revenge x Storm sneakers, and more precisely, we will have to inspect the quality of the “REVENGE” text on both the fake vs real Revenge x Storm sneakers.
In the Revenge x Storm fake vs real images above, we have pointed out how, on the fake sneakers, the letter “R” looks a lot thicker, as there is stitched in too much material, while on the legit Revenge x Storm sneakers, the letter “R” looks way thinner.
Then, the letter “V” on the fake Revenge x Storm sneakers has height problems; that is because the fake “V” is bigger than the rest of the sneakers, while on the legit pair, this letter is in line with the rest of the characters.
Then, moving to the letter “E”, the fake one is too curvy and the legs and lines of this character are more arched and curvier than the ones on the authentic Revenge x Storm sneakers.
Lastly, for the tongue text, the bottom left corner of the “N” character is looking too sharp on the fake Revenge x Storm sneakers, while on the authentic Revenge x Storm pairs, the letter “N” has to look more squarely, and not sharp.
As for the fifth and the last step of the Revenge x Storm real vs fake guide, we are going to flip the sneakers to the sole side and inspect the “Revenge x Storm” that is located there.
As you can see in the real vs fake Revenge x Storm images above, the replica Revenge x Storm sneakers have their sole’s text looking less defined and readable than the authentic sneakers’ text.
In fact, the counterfeit Revenge x Storm sneakers almost have no space between the letters “R” and “M” at the edge of the word “STORM”, while on the authentic Revenge x Storms sneakers, this text is fully visible and readable.
