In the sneakerhead world, it’s all about being in the know when it comes to rare and exclusive sneakers. Fake sneakers have been making their way into the market and becoming more common, so it’s important to be able to identify them. In this post, we’ll teach you how to spot and identify a fake Union Nike Dunk Low Passport Pistachio. Areas of our focus will be the toe box, the panel’s swoosh logo, the tag, the heel, the midsole, the tongue tab and more.
But first, let’s go through our preliminary steps.
. Smell the shoes ( only if you’ve already made the purchase)
One of the dead giveaway is the smell/odor of the glue uses to construct the replicas. If the glue smell is really strong to the point of irritating your nostrils, then you’ve probably being dealt a counterfeit
.Proof of Purchase
Ask for a proof of purchase. Receipt must include details such as provenance, time of purchase, date and any other relevant information. If a seller is reluctant to provide that, I will strongly urge to refrain from following through with the purchase.
Tongue Tab/ Perforations
The perforations on the toe box are barely visible on the authentic pair, but very vivid on the fakes. The tongue tab is wider on the fake pair as well.
Hang Tag ( Front/ Back)
The tag is darker and more dull on the fake pair, the writings are barely legible on the replicas.
The swoosh logo is slightly darker on the authentic pair ( see red circle), and the heel and forefoot overlays are a lot lighter on the legitimate pair ( see red squares).
The heel logo is slightly of a darker shade on the authentic pair.
The Nike text on the back is of a larger print on the Fake Union Nike Dunk Low Passport Pistachio. If you also zero in on the text, it appears to have a black outline on the replicas. And moreover, the stitching is a little awful on the fakes ( see red circle).
You can clearly see the poor craftsmanship on the midsole stitching.
The outsole is of a slightly darker shade on the replicas.
Black Light Test
As usual, most fakes have guidelines and these are highlighted by the black light test ( see dotted lines ).
