In this "How to spot...." review I will explain how you can spot the difference between replica and authentic Christian Louboutin men spiked sneakers. You can see the real vs reps pictures to get a better look.
The most visible aspect of the Louboutin Louis spiked sneakers are of course the spikes. The spikes on the authentic sneakers are a bit blunt and the spikes of the cheap fake sneakers are way to pointy.
Also the spikes should have a full structure and should be placed with care and not randomly.
The top row of the left and right inner side of the sneakers should have only 3 spikes, not 4 as you can see on the picture of the cheap sneakers below. The second row should have a full row of spikes, and the third row should again start with 3 spikes followed by a 3D circle with a 3D brassed logo.
Almost 95% of the replica's don't have a proper circle! As you can see on the pictures of the cheap sneakers below the circle is flat instead of padded. But perfectkickz offer the padded circle in super max quality louboutins.
An authentic pair of Christian Louboutin sneakers should have a glossy red rubber sole. Cheap fakes often have more of a dark deeper red color with a matte looking finish.
Also the rubber itself is red and not painted red! If you ever see a red spot or red stain on the non-red part of the sole or a different color on the red part of the sole the Louboutin is very cheap!
The most visible giveaway is the 'Made in" stamp on the bottom of the sole. The stamp on the MEN sneaker that were manufactured AFTER 2012 have a "Made in EU" and NOT a "Made in Italy" stamp. The sneaker that have been manufactured PRIORE TO 2012 have the "Made in Italy" stamp as well as the women sneakers!
On the inside of the flap should be the size in EUR (39, 39,5, 40, etc.) and NOTHING else! No code or logo as you can see on the picture of the cheap fake sneakers below.
The box might be a silly thing to look for when authenticating the shoe, but it's a major giveaway. The color of the MEN SNEAKER box should be dark beige and should be hard to fold (not like a regular carbon box)
The "Christian Louboutin Paris" logo on top of the box should be white. Pay close attention to the word "Paris". Most replica boxes often misplace the word by putting it all the way down and make the letters to big.
On the short side of the box you should find a white sticker with the name of the shoe, the color, the barcode, the shoe code, the serial code, the EUR size (39, 39,5, etc) and the white Louboutin logo in a black square.
On the inside of the box you should find one or two dustbags and one or two small dustbag with extra studs. The dustbags of Louboutin sneakers (men and woman) are white with a red logo and NOT red! Some Louboutin resellers add one dustbag and others two.
The dustbags should be made of thick almost velvet(ish) soft material and they should have the Christian Louboutin Paris red logo on top. Also on the little dustbag!As you can see on the picture above of the fake dustbag it looks more like silk.
Next confused part is the back heel stitching. All Louboutin Men's sneakers have the stitching on the back heel. Some fakes copy the women styles so that missed the stitching or made different stitching.
Another ignored flaw is the small stitching on the toe box. It should be lined to the 4th spikes of the first row on the toe box, not 3rd or 2nd spikes.
