If you are looking to learn how to authenticate Valentino Rockstud Pumps, then you are in the right place to do so.

In this real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps guide, we are going to teach you how to easily spot fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps in just a few simple steps to follow.

Along with each step of our Rockstud Pumps legit check guide, we will link reference real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps images so that each step will be clear and easy to follow.

The quickest way to authenticate Valentino Rockstud Pumps is to check the label found inside of your pumps, on the “insole” side. Most of the time, the replica Valentino Rockstud Pumps have their label’s text at different font-weights than the authentic pumps, and this is easily spottable when comparing with the authentic pumps.

How to spot fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps

Step 1: Real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps interior label

For the first step of the guide on how to authenticate Valentino Rockstud Pumps, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps for the interior label.

Once again, and as previously mentioned, this is the top indicator of authenticity, so we recommend that you always check the interior label of the Valentino Rockstud Pumps that you have to authenticate

Now, let’s have a quick look at the reference real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps image below in order to spot the differences between the two pairs.

In the image with the real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps above, we have pointed out how the replica Valentino Pumps have their elements at the wrong font-weight.

First of all, looking at the Valentino logo at the top of the label, have pointed out how the fake pumps have their logo looking too thick on the letter “V”, but also too thin on the rest of the logo, which is the circle.

On the other hand, speaking of the authentic Pumps, they have their letter “V” thinner than the fake pumps’ “V”, and the circle around the “V” is thicker than the fake pumps’ circle.

Then, looking at the main “VALENTINO” text, we have pointed out in the real vs fake Valentino Rockstud image above how the fake Pumps have their letters looking too thin.

Speaking of the authentic shoes once again, they have their main “VALENTINO” text looking thicker and more defined than the fake shoes’ text.

At the same time, it may be a bit confusing that the authentic shoes are a bit used and their text is  also a bit faded, but at the same time, you can still notice how it is thicker than the fake shoes’ text.

Although the legit Valentino Pumps are used, the opacity still doesn’t influence the font-weight of the text, and therefore, it still is visible how the text on the legit Pumps is thicker than the fake shoes’ text.

Up next, looking at the “GARAVANI” text, we have pointed out in the real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps above how the fake shoes have their text looking too stretched out and also too  thin.

On the other hand, the authentic Rockstud Valentino Pumps have their “GARAVANI” text looking boxier and thicker than the fake Pumps’ text.

Step 2: Check the stitching all around the interior label

Moving on to the next way on how to spot fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps for the stitching near the interior label.

As you may know already, we’ll first check the reference fake vs real Valentino Rockstud Pumps image below, and then, we’ll proceed to explain the flaws on the fake shoes.

In the image with the real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps above, we have pointed out how the replica pumps have their stitching found all around the interior label looking too thick, but also crookedly positioned.

On the other hand, the authentic Pumps have their stitching at the same weight, not being either too thick or too thin, and they also have their stitches in straight lines, without having any stitch crooked.

At the same time, in the left side of the label, we have noticed how the replica Valentino Pumps have their stitching placed too far away from the label, while the authentic Pumps have their stitching closer to the label.

Keep in mind that such little details matter when authenticating Valentino Rockstud Pumps, and we highly recommend that you always have a look at the stitching as well.

Step 3: Fake vs real Valentino Rockstud Pumps sole text

Flipping the fake vs real Valentino Rockstud Pumps to the rear side, we are now going to have a look at the text found on the sole of both the authentic vs replica Valentino Rockstud Pumps.

In order to properly see the details on the soles of your Pumps, we recommend that you also take a photo of your Pumps (in case you already have them in-hand) and compare side-by-side with out real vs fake Valentino Pumps image.

You can notice in the real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps image above how the replica shoes have a few flaws on their sole’s text.

First of all, looking at the classic Valentino logo at the top, we have pointed out how the counterfeit Rockstud Pumps have their logo looking too thick when compared to the authentic Pumps’ logo, which is thinner.

At the same time, the replica Pumps also have their letter “V” misplaced inside the circle, as it isn’t entered in the middle of the circle.

On the other hand, the authentic Rockstud Pumps have their “V” placed in the middle of the circle, following the right pattern of the logo.

Up next, looking at the “VALENTINO” text, we have noticed how the replica Rockstud Pumps have their text looking too boxy and thick, while the authentic ones have their text bigger and thinner.

Also, the fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps have their letter “V” placed a bit further away from the rest of the letters, and the authentic Pumps have all of their letters in place, having the same kerning between each letter.

Then, moving to the “GARAVANI” and the “MADE IN ITALY” lines of text, we have pointed out in the real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps above how the fake shoes have their lines of text also looking too boxy and thick.

Once again, the legitimate Valentino Rockstud Pumps have their “GARAVANI” and the “MADE IN ITALY” lines of text looking bigger and thinner than the fake shoes’ text.

Lastly, looking at the text indicating the size, we have noticed how the fake shoes have their text looking too thick, but also badly kerned between the numbers.

Looking at the distance between the “3” and the “8” on the fake pumps, you can see how the fake Valentino Rockstud have their numbers placed too close to each other.

Then, the authentic Rockstud Pumps have their numbers first of all looking thinner, and then, their “3” and “7” placed a bit further away, as there is more distance between them when compared to the fake shoes.

Step 4: Inspect the shoes for their shininess of the metal spikes

Proceeding to the fourth method on how to authenticate Valentino Rockstud Pumps, we will have to look at the fake vs real Rockstud Pumps for the shininess of their metal spikes placed all over the pumps.

As usual, let’s first have a quick look at the reference real vs fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps image below.

In the image containing the fake vs real Valentino Rockstud Pumps above, we have pointed out how the replica Pumps have their spikes shining too bright.

On the other hand, the legitimate Valentino Pumps have their spikes shining less bright than the ones found on the fake pumps.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways on how to authenticate this item.

The tells listed below this point are still reliable signs of authenticity, but for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the top tells we’ve explained above this point to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

Step 5: Verify the glossiness on the two box of your Valentino Rockstud Pumps (if applicable)

As for the fifth method on how to spot fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps, we will have a look at the Valentino Rockstud Pumps fake vs real image below in order to verify the glossiness of the pumps on the toe boxes.

Please keep in mind that this step applies only to the pumps which, of course, use a glossy material.

fake vs real valentino rockstud pumps

In the image with the fake vs real Valentino Rockstud Pumps above, we have pointed out how the replica pumps have their toe box reflecting more light on their glossy material.

Then, going to the authentic shoes’ toe box, you can notice how they reflect less light on their glossy material on the toe box.

Step 6: Analyze your pumps for any marks

Going to the sixth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Valentino Rockstud Pumps, we are going to verify the Pumps for any extra marks.

The replica Valentino Rockstud Pumps sometimes come with extra marks from the replica manufacturers, and this is something that you should keep an eye out for.

real vs fake valentino rockstud pumps

As you can see in the image above, we have only highlighted a replica Valentino Rockstud pair of pumps, showing you with the hand-emoji pointer how it has an extra mark.

Whether that is a “b” or a “6”, that doesn’t really matter, since it shouldn’t be there, because as previously mentioned, the authentic Valentino Rockstud Pumps should not come from the authorized Valentino factory with such marks.
