How to spot the fake Rick Owens DRKSHDW Ramones
The quickest way to spot the fake Rick Owens Ramones DRKSHDW sneakers is to verify the stitching all around them.

Step 1: Real vs fake Rick Owens Ramones stitching
As we said previously, the most reliable way to spot the fake Rick Owens DRKSHDW sneakers is to look at the stitching.
First of all, let’s see the fake vs real Rick Owens Ramones sneakers in order to get a better visualization of what our point is.
As you can see in the fake vs real Rick Owens DRKSHDW images above, the counterfeit pair has, first of all, longer and thicker stitching lines than the authentic sneakers’ stitches, and not only that but they even have extra threads.
By extra threads, we mean that the replica Rick Owens Ramones pairs are most common to have stitches that are out of the line, while the authentic Rick Owens DRKSHDW sneakers got all of their stitches in the same line.
We have highlighted the stitching on the toe box because it is most likely for the replica Rick Owens Ramones sneakers to have the stitching flawed in this area of the shoes.
Step 2: Inspect the toe box of the Rick Owens DRKSHDW sneakers
As for the second step of the Rick Owens DRKSHDW fake vs real guide, we are going to inspect the toe box and its height.
Basically, the toe box is that area of the sneakers where the toes fit in, and most of the time, the fake Rick Owens Ramones pairs have this area flawed.
It is visible in the Rick Owens DRKSHDW fake vs real image above how, on the fake sneakers, the toe box area looks a lot higher and lifted up than the authentic sneakers’ toe box.
What we mean is that the counterfeit Rick Owens Ramones pairs have the toe box area looking more arched and curvier than the authentic Ramones’ toe box area.
Step 3: Check the rear details of the Rick Owens Ramones
Now that you know how to spot the fake Rick Owens DRKSHDW sneakers by inspecting the stitching and the toe box area, we are going to continue the fake vs real Rick Owens DRKSDHW legit check guide by checking the rear details of the shoes.
In the fake vs real Rick Owens Ramones image above, we have used a green line to point out the distance on the rear tab on the authentic DRKSDHW sneakers, and a red line which points out the distance on the rear tab on the replica Rick Owens Ramones shoes.
Most of the time, the replica Rick Owens DRKSHDW sneakers will have a lot more distance in length between the rear tab than the stitching on the authentic Ramones, and that’s usually visible with the naked eye.
Step 4: Fake vs real Rick Owens DRKSHDW side perforations
As for the fourth and the last step of the fake vs real DRKSHDW Rick Owens legit check guide, we are going to let you know how to spot the fake Rick Owens Ramones by inspecting the two holes on the side of the sneakers. We call these two holes “perforations”.
As you can see in the fake vs real Rick Owens DRKSHDW image above, we have used the green and the red lines again, and this time, these two lines point out at the placement of the perforations.
In fact, you can see how, on the legit Rick Owens Ramones sneakers, the two holes are placed on a straight imaginary line (which we made it real this time by drawing it), and how, on the fake Rick Owens DRKSHDW shoes, the two holes are placed irregularly, as they don’t fit on a straight line.
