Today we talk about the novelty of the season – snow-white sneakers from the French spring-summer 2022 collection. These are Celine Block Sneakers. Such sneakers can be called a must-have for any fashionista, because they are massive and without any special accents. But let’s talk about the features of such sneakers and how to distinguish the original model from a cheap fake.
General information about Celine Block Sneakers
The sneaker maker is a popular designer and photographer Hedi Slimane. These sneakers are made from 100% calf leather. It also has a chunky sole and cotton laces. And retro motifs from the past are taken as the basis for the design of sneakers.
Original sneakers are even harder to distinguish from fakes than bags. Perhaps the reason for this is that we do not pay much attention to them, and they are unlikely to be felt. But if you look closely at the shoes not on the leg, then it immediately becomes clear where the original is and where the fake is. By the way, the original model is on the left.
In the original, the sole cannot be completely flat. It should have curves, thanks to which the shoe cushion is comfortable while walking. This is not only a matter of design, but also of your comfort. In the original model, the sole in the heel area is curved, based on the anatomical features of a person. The material does not wear out and will last longer.
A fake has a straight sole in this area, so it will quickly wear off.

In the original, the inscription is larger, the letters are wide and there is a large distance between them. Also, the original shoe platform consists of several parts – smooth and grainy.
The fake also has two types of soles, but the transition is less noticeable. By the way, the sticker with the size on the sole immediately gives out a fake.
In the original model, the shoe size is printed on the tag.

You don’t even have to be an expert here to notice the difference. Also, the back of the sneaker is softer, while the fake is more rigid. Original sneakers are less likely to hurt your foot. By the way, the color of the sneakers is also different. In the original model, it is absolutely white, while the fake is more milky.
Leather Quality and Perforation
In the original sneakers, the leather is more matte and grainy. This is clearly seen in its details, especially on the side and front area where the laces are attached. In the original model, the thickness and dressing of the leather that can be seen in this area is great. In the fake, the leather is thin and made from the remains of the leather. In the original, this part is more voluminous, and in the fake, this part is flat.
Perforation of sneakers is also different. It is fake, it is not very aesthetic and water can even leak there.
In the original model they are made of cotton, in the fake they are made of synthetic material, possibly polyester. If we talk about the tongue of sneakers, then it even differs in appearance. In the original model, it is high-quality, voluminous and the letters are also larger. The logo even gives off shine. In a fake, it is more matte, the application is not deep, the letters are not thick.
Let’s get back to the details of the tongue. It is originally made of two parts, it is quite mobile, it helps to make the shoes wear-resistant. The leather is not elastic, so these sneakers will last a long time. Fake is not like that.
Insoles – fake vs original
They differ in color both on one side and on the other. The original back of the insole is blue. It is also thinner.
The Final Word
Pay attention to such details so as not to fall for fakes and wear only high-quality original shoes. Take care of your legs and the next time you doubt your choice, remember all these differences.
