How to tell if Rick Owens Ramones are real

  • The fake Rick Owens pair has, longer and thicker stitching lines than the authentic sneakers’ stitches.
  • Extra threads are also found hanging on the fake pair.

Fake Rick Owens Ramones are commoly found to have stitches that are out of the line, whileauthentic pairs never do so. A real pair always has all stitches in place.

We have highlighted the stitching on the toe box because it is most likely for the replica Rick Owens Ramones sneakers to have the stitching flawed in this area of the shoes.

2. Toe box height

  • On the fake sneakers, the toe box is a lot higher and lifted up compared to the authentic sneakers’ toe box.

Usually, fake Ramones have the toe box arched and curved more than the authentic Ramones.

3. Rear tab

In the comparison image, we used a green line to point out the distance on the rear tab on the authentic DRKSDHW sneakers, and a red line which points out the distance on the rear tab on the replica Rick Owens Ramones shoes.

  • The replica Rick Owens DRKSHDW have a lot more distance in length between the rear tab.

The authentic pair is narrower inside the tab. There’s less space from the left edge to the right one on the real pair.

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.

4. Perforations

As you can see in the fake vs real Rick Owens DRKSHDW image above,

  • On the fake Rick Owens DRKSHDW shoes, the two holes are placed irregularly, as they don’t fit on a straight line.

The legit Rick Owens Ramones have the wholes holes placed on a straight imaginary line — which we made it real this time by drawing it.

Where are Rick Owens Ramones made?

Rick Owens Ramones are made in Italy. All Rick Owens sneakers and +90% of the clothes are manufactured in Italy.

Shortlist: Legit check Rick Owens Ramones in 60 seconds

  1. First of all, inspect the stitching around the sneakers. Most of the time, the replica Rick Owens Ramones sneakers will have their stitching on the toe box area looking thicker and longer than the authentic stitching. Even more, the fake shoes are most likely to have extra threads which wouldn’t have to be there
  2. Verify the toe box area of the shoes. Mostly, the fake Rick Owens DRKSHDW sneakers have their toe box looking curvier and more lifted up than the authentic one
  3. Check the rear details on the Rick Owens Ramones. Usually, the fake shoes have a larger distance from the left to the right edge on the rear tab, while the authentic Rick Owens DRKSHDW pairs have a smaller distance between the two edges
  4. Analyze the perforations on the side of the shoes. Mostly, the fake Rick Owens Ramones pairs have their two holes placed uneven, as if you draw an imaginary line, they wouldn’t be on the same line, while the authentic sneakers will always have their holes placed correctly and on the line
