6. Box Footprint

The underside of the Converse shoe box has a printed design of the actuals sneaker's rubber sole. Make sure the print quality is solid with sharp edges, take note that the design itself has a rough look with some broken edges. Also make sure the tread pattern matches the shoe inside the box, some other styles may differ.

10. Heel Logo

Converse sneakers will have a heel patch with logo. The logo will read Converse All Star. Make sure the print quality is solid with sharp clean edges, check that the typefaces used are correct. Also note how the patch is glued on firmly, make sure it is not lifting off anywhere. This is a good opportunity to have a close look at the join between rubber midsole and fabric upper, make sure there is no excess glue showing along the join.

23. Inside Label (L)

Make sure the 13 digit product code on the left shoe is different to the one on the right shoe, the last 4 digits should be different.

26. Insole Forefoot

The sockliner will have 3-4 small rounded cuts on the edge where your big toe would be.
