How to Identify Original Reebok Shoes
Sometimes we don't know where our new sneakers come from. They might have been a present given to us or we simply bought them secondhand, but if we haven't purchased them from an official retailer, sometimes it's difficult to tell the difference between fake and original Reebok shoes.
The British brand, created in 1890, has several ways of marking their shoes so they can be told apart from possible copies. This is why, at OneHowTo, we want to show you how to identify original Reebok shoes and tell them apart from fakes.
The first step to learn how to identify original Reebok shoes is to check the box they came in. It should have the Reebok logo on it which is a red and blue flag as well as the lettering with their official font.
You will also be able to find a white sticker on the box, which should have all of the shoes' information, including size, style number and other characteristics of the shoe.
The style number that we have just talked about in the previous step should also be the same as the one you'll find on the tongue label. It should be composed by one letter and five numbers. On the tongue, you'll also find a QR code too. A sticker with the same code number should also be found in the inside of your sneaker's sole.
The tongue label should be properly sewn and shouldn't be a sticker.
The sole of your Reebok shoes will also tell you if they are original or not. Go to an official retailer and compare your exact model with the one in the shop. If the soles are the same you can rest assured they are original.
Another way to know if your Reebok trainers are original is to take a look at the top of the tongue. Originals with have the logo sewn on it. Take a look at the seams, as it should be properly sewn. If you notice they are sewn badly or are not tight, you probably have a fake.
Now, take a look at the side part of your Reebok sneakers. Make sure that the logo is printed on it with the right font. You'll notice that the letters "e" are designed in a way that they don't completely close.
Some Reebok models may also feature the flag of Great Britain.
