How to Legit Check the Off-White x Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star

How to Legit Check the Off-White x Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star

Eventhough the Off-White x Converse Chuck Taylor is the model with the lowest retail value from the whole "The Ten", it's resell prices are already top notch, reaching four digit amounts already! This might be closely tied to it's delayed release, almost half a year after the release of the initial The Ten series! 
Because of this delay, fake manufacturers have had enough time to produce their first batches of fakes, based on the first samples and we thought you'd like to know how to avoid ending up buying those fakes! 
Let's hop right into it:

Name Off-White x Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Hi
Colorway WHITE/CONE/ICE-BLUE
SKU 162204C-102

The Box

From the outside, the box looks similar to the rest of The Ten (Air Force 1, Air Jordan 1, etc...).
The special part about this box is the glossy "CONVERSE" lettering, early fakes feature the incorrect "NIKE SWOOSH" logo.

This is how the box label looks like. Compared to the box labels from all the other Off-White x Nike shoes, this label is unique. Some fakes feature the regular box tag from the other nine pairs of The Ten.

The inside of the box looks similar to the one from the Off-White x Air Jordan 1 'Chicago', it's an inside-out Converse box. Some fakes use the wrong red Nike Swoosh inside-out box, comparable to the box of e.g. Off-White x Nike Air Max 90.

This print of the sole is unique which is why many fakes do not feature it as they use the generally wrong box.

The Shoes

The overall shape of the shoe is quite slim and it's laced quite tightly. Fakes are laced more loose and are generally not as slim as the originals.
The material around the lacelugs is not as off-whitish on fake pairs as it is on real ones.

The "RIGHT" and "LEFT" print on the toebox is not written as bold on fake pairs as on real pairs. The stitching around the the lacelugs is completely different on most fake pairs.

This is how a genuine inside tag looks like. Most fakes look completely different.

The overall build structure and shape is different on fake pairs. Especially the stitching is quite a good giveaway.

The logo on the heel does not have the same quality as it does on real pairs.

The "VULCANIZED" lettering is not as bold and placed differently on most fake pairs.

The text printed on the side of the shoes must be black, on some fakes it's heavily faded, basically grey instead of black.
You must also make sure that the thread stitched on the orange "flag" has exactly the same color as in this picture, many fakes also feature too many stitches.

Fake zip ties are not the same red as real ones.

They come with three extra laces. They are tied quite loosely while the fakes are tied very tightly.
