We know that learning how to spot the fake Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse becomes harder and harder as the fakes get better.
That is exactly why we’ve made this complete legit check guide on how to check the fake CDG Converse from the real pair.
There are many replicas of the CDG Converse and it is important for you to know how to spot fake Comme Des Garcons Converse pairs.
In fact, we have sorted it out in just five simple steps too look at when checking the fake vs real Comme Des Garcons Converse sneakers.
Without any further ado, let’s see how to check fake vs real CDG Converse sneakers.
How to spot fake Converse x CDG
Step 1: Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse real vs fake size tag
We have mentioned it above, and we are going to say it again because this is one of the most important things you have to look at when checking the real vs fake CDG Converse shoes.
In the image with the fake vs real CDG Converse shoes above, we have pointed out how the replica pair has its numbers improperly font-weighted.
By that, we mean that the fake shoes have their numbers looking too thick when compared to the real deal.
On the other hand, the authentic shoes have all of their numbers looking thinner than the ones found on the fake pair.
Also, if you look at the eyes of the heart, you can see how they are too small on the fake pair, and how they are bigger on the real CDG Converses.
Now let’s also have a quick look at another real vs fake CDG Converse comparison and let’s analyze a new fake size tag.
As you may see, we have pointed out at the fact that the fake shoes don’t have the black bars above and below the size tag. Keep in mind that there are newer releases of the authentic shoes which do not have the black bars, and therefore, we do not consider the bars reliable signs of authenticity.
Then, moving on to the text below the “FABRIQUE EN VIETNAM” text, the “15020..” text may differ from a pair to another.
The problem with the most of the fake CDG Converse text is that the letters are obviously thicker than they have to look like, and this text on the authentic CDG Converse sneakers is noticeably thinner.
Then, moving to the top right side of the size tag, you can easily see how the fake CDG red heart logo is different on the fake tag. Basically, the differences are obvious.
The fake CDG red heart logo doesn’t have the eyes touching the top and the bottom sides of where the white area has its limits on before melting with the red heart’s body.
On the other hand, the authentic CDG Converse heart logo on the size tag has the eyes covering the white area from the top to the bottom side.
Lastly, on the real vs fake CDG Converse size tag, we have highlighted the fact that the fake Converse CDG sneakers have the text that indicates the “UK” size a lot thicker than the “UK” text on the authentic size tag.
Step 2: Real vs fake CDG Converse heart shape
As for the second step of the fake vs real CDG Converse legit check guide, we are going to quickly analyze the shape of the red CDG logo heart on the side of both the CDG Converse real vs fake sneakers.
The authentic Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse heart has to be really close to touching the stitching above it, and at the same time, we are talking about the stitching below the lace holes.
You can see that this fact is valid on the authentic CDG Converse heart, but this is flawed on the fake CDG sneakers.
In fact, the fake sneakers have the heart logo looking smaller than it has to look like, and it is placed further from the stitching below it.
Step 3: Check the eyes on the CDG Converse heart logo
Because we were still talking about the real vs fake CDG Converse heart logo shape, let’s go deeper inside the comparison, and have a look at the way that the fake vs real Converse CDG eyes look like.
This is a common flaw on the fake Converse CDG sneakers: the eyes are 100% circles, and the authentic CDG Converse sneakers never have that perfect circle shape.
We have pointed out at the left eye on the real vs fake CDG Converse sneakers because you can notice how the fake shoes have the eye looking a more like a circle.
On the other hand, the authentic CDG Converse shoes have the left eye looking less like a perfect circle, and it has a different shape.
Then, the right eye, which looks more like a circle on both the real vs fake CDG Converse, still has a flaw on the fake shoes.
This time, you can see how the fake eye looks less like a circle this time, and it has a more random shape, while the authentic shoe has this eye looking almost like a full round circle, and it looks more like an oval.
To be more precise, the fake shoes have a less round shape, and the authentic eye is more of a circle on the right eye.
Indeed, it may be hard to get your eyes formed to spot fake CDG Converse eyes, but that’s why we’re here today, to teach you how to spot fake Converse CDG shoes, and even more, that’s why we attach these images.
That’s for your legit checking to be easier, so that’s why we recommend you refer to our pictures every time you authenticate a Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse pair of sneakers.
Step 4: Inspect the distance between the holes on the side of your CDG Converse sneakers
Now that we clarified it for you with the heart logo, let’s get you to know how to spot the fake vs real CDG Converse sneakers by looking at the distance between these two holes on the side of the sneakers.
We have used the green line highlighting the right distance between the holes on the side of the Comme Des Garcons Converse, and the red line showing you the distance on the fake shoes.
Now, back to the calculations of the distances, you can easily spot how the fake Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse sneakers have a tiny distance between these two holes on the side of the shoes.
At the same time, the legit Converse sneakers have a longer and bigger distance between these two.
Step 5: Analyze the stitching on the rear side of your shoes
As for the fifth and the last step of the Converse x Comme Des Garcons CDG legit check guide, we are going to analyze the stitching on the rear heel side of these shoes.
Most of the time, the counterfeit Comme Des Garcons CDG Converse sneaker will have extra threads and hanging stitches that shouldn’t have their place around the sneakers.
On the authentic Converse x CDG sneakers, you should not meet any stitches hanging where they should not be.
We have highlighted in the image above how the fake CDG Converse sneakers have a big thread hanging on the rear heel side. Besides, you can even notice how the fake Converse CDG shoes also have poorer stitching quality compared to the legit shoes.
