Yes, there are fake Stadium Goods “Verified Authentic” tags.

This guide will teach you how to spot fakes.

Important: A ‘Stadium Goods tag’ doesn’t necessarily mean an item is legit.

  • Popular case: Fake manufacturers can always attach fakes tags.
  • Similarly: A replica reseller can attach even a legit tag to a fake pair.
  • Hence, you need to be informed how to spot a fake.

Follow this checklist to legit check your Stadium Goods tag.

We’ve also got a StockX Verified Authentic Tag guide.

How to spot fake Stadium Goods tags

You can spot fake Stadium Goods tags by checking whether the tag is attached to the item or not.

Authentic Stadium Goods labels are always attached to the items.

Fakes may not be.

1. Attachment

Over here, we’re talking about how the tag is attached to the item.

  • Authentic: The label is cut because it was attached to a pair of sneakers.
  • Fake: The label looks like it was never attached to the item, indicating a counterfeit tag.

Legit tags can be removed without cutting by removing the shoelaces.

This is a bit tricky:

  • That’s why knowing more about where the item comes from can be handy.
  • You can easily mistake an authentic for a fake if the rare scenario of removing the laces is true.

Let’s look at another comparison:

  • Authentic Stadium Goods labels are attached to the items before being cut.
  • There are both older and newer versions of these authentic labels.

Above we’ve compared 2 legit tags: Off-White Air Max 90, Yeezy 350 V1.

Too hard? Let our expert legit checkers have at look at your item:

2. Front

Stadium Goods labels come in two formats:

  • The older Stadium Goods tag is the one that is taller vertically.
  • The newer one is the one that is wider horziontally.

We’ll look at both, one by one.

2.1 Older tag

  • Authentic: The genuine Stadium Goods label has thinner and less opaque text.
  • Fake: The counterfeit Stadium Goods label has thicker and more opaque text.

2.2. Newer tag

  • Authentic: Letters with no cracks or scratches.
  • Fake: Letters with noticeable cracks and scratches.

3. Back

We’ll follow the same protocol from the last step.

First older, then newer.

3.1. Older tag

  • Authentic:
    1. Less visible graphics.
    2. Scratched “ATTENTION” text.
    3. Reflects light.
    4. Less space between lines of text.
    5. It also appears more textured.
  • Fake:
    1. More visible graphics.
    2. Thicker “ATTENTION” text.
    3. Does not reflect light.
    4. More space between lines of text.
    5. It lacks the texture seen on the authentic label.

3.2. Newer tag

  • Authentic: Maintains consistent spacing between its lines of text.
  • Fake: Has lines of text placed too close together.

This flaw is consistent in multiple places on the fake label.

Shortlist: Verify your label

If you’re short on time, feel free to use this authenticity checklist:

  1. Label Attachment:
    • Check whether the label is attached to your item or not. If you observe an item with an unattached label that comes alongside it, it is likely a fake item, as well as a fake Stadium Goods (SG) tag.
  2. Front Side of the Tag:
    • Examine the front side of your tag to ensure there are no thickness irregularities or flaws in the rubber-text, such as scratching.
  3. Rear Side of the Tag:
    • Look at the tag from the rear side. Most replica Stadium Goods tags have text that is the wrong thickness, improperly spaced between lines, and may not reflect light (for the older tag with a small holographic detail).

Is Stadium Goods legit and trustable?

Yes, Stadium Goods is +95% legit and trustable.

  • Authentic shoes pass further for sale
  • Fakes get sent back to the sellers.

All sold products are verified by their expert authenticators

Do fakes go through Stadium Goods?

There have been discussions on whether SG is reliable when it comes to the authenticity of the sneakers.

The short answer is yes, more often than not, they are reliable and yes, some fake go through due to human error.

At the end of the day, we need to understand that there are sometimes human errors, and in really most of the cases, these do get fixed.
