02/5Lookout for the outsole

It is indeed difficult to tell whether it is fake or not by just looking at the outsole, as some fakes have started using the prominent Xs, whereas, to an untrained eye, it can be thus difficult to tell whether the pair is real or not. Thus, whenever you purchase, look at the Big X size on the outsole, look for the logo which will be in a really small pattern, and take a look at the overall shape of your Birkenstock.

03/5Packaging

Your Birkenstock should always come in a branded box. Thus, if your seller is not sending you the original blue box with their shoes, then it is a fake. A reputable seller will always inform you of the details regarding the packaging, with the boxes having labels that should thus include pictures of the shoes in the box that will draw the line drawing of what you have ordered.

04/5Lookout for the overall detailing

The little details thus make or break the shoe to be authentic. Always look for the word ‘Birkenstock’ written on the larger buckles of the shoes. The smaller buckles or the metal pieces will have a shortened version such as ‘Birken’ or ‘Birk.’ You will also find the name embossed in the strap material on either side of the shoe, and will rarely be just printed but you will be able to feel the deep indentations with your fingers.

05/5Differentiate with the sole pattern

The soles of almost every Birkenstock have the shape of a unique hourglass which exudes the variation pattern details of the shoe. Some of the shapes will also say ‘Birk’ on clogs and sandals, whereas a blue logo will be seen in boots and athletic shoes. Thus, look for the shape of the sole and the detailing of the sole pattern from which you will get a slight idea.
