In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, Nike is planning on releasing a limited edition version of the SB Dunk Low in the month of March. As with any popular release, there are bound to be knock-offs flooding the market. As a matter of fact, the replicas are already out and hard to identify to the untrained and unsuspecting eye. So, how can you tell if you’re buying the real deal? In this post, we’ll quickly learn how to spot the  Fake Nike SB Dunk Low St.Patrick’s Day.

Quarter Panel logo

The clover leaf logo looks sloppy on the fake pair, the threads are a bit loose. On the legitimate pair, the clover leaf is more compacted and its stem is curvy. Also the gap between the leaf and the swoosh logo is slightly wider on the fakes.

Midsole

The midsole slits are a bit narrower on the fake pair. Also there are two parts to the slits on the authentic pair, but on the fake you don’t see the two parts. Zero in on the clover leaf again, it is very subpar on the replica pair.

Forefoot Overlay

The edges of the leather material on the forefoot overlay are very thick on the fake pair, zero in on the yellow arrows, it will jump at you. This is a recurring thing with fake sneakers, and it is due to the poor craftsmanship and sometimes the lack of precise equipment to perform certain tasks.

Once again, the edges of the heel overlay are much thicker on the replica pair ( see yellow arrows). The fakes also have widow peaks highlighted by the yellow circles. Notice how the Nike text is centered on the fake pair, but almost adjacent to the heel tab’s edge on the legit pair. Moreover the spacing between the edge of the tab and the first set of stitches is wider on the replicas. And may I also add that the counterfeit pair is also narrower.

Toe Area

The edges are thicker and the gaps between the perforations and the edges are wider on the fake pair.

Outsole

The embossed logo appears very sloppy on the fake pair. The area enclosing the “branding” is rugged on the authentic pair but smoother on the replicas.

Inside Label

Even though this isn’t a very good way to authenticate a pair, I’ll invite you to stay away from anyone who offers you a pair that has a production date matching the one in the picture above.

 

RFID behind the label
