By jove, if I haven't only gone and solved it.
Check out the stickers on the boxes.
The stickers should have rounded edges and "Made in Indonesia" on them.
If they are square, they are fake.
Also the sticker should be placed centrally on the box.
Simple as that homey's.
If you bought a pair on the day of release and it's got squared edges, let me know.
I'll be well surprised.

you are indeed a detective sir - well done!

Wink

the sticker on the box from my Dasslers says 'Superstar Vintage V' too though, but it's got round corners, is placed centrally on the box and has 'Made in Indonesia' on it as well.

But I must admit that the fakes you posted a link to are absolutely amazing! and to be honest, if I saw a pair of footpatrols in my size I'd most likely pick them up despite they were fakes (depending very much on the price of course).

This is a fluid situation people.
My eyes are burning looking for the solution to the Da Dasler code.

Shocked

Check it !
O.K.
As far as I'm concerned this settles the "Have they copied the Consortiums with the Vintage sole unit" question.
Below are 2 photos of Footpatrols, one of which was bought on New Years Day last year at the shop itself.
The other I bought on the bay about 6 months ago.
The photo after is from an auction currently running on the bay.
Notice that the centre of teh R should be filled in and that the spacing on the Adidas is totally wrong.
It does appear they are out there, so if you want 'em, make sure don't pay anything close to Consortium money for 'em.
I previously said this seller was genuine in another post.
Doh !!
Gotcha
Needless to say I have bought a hat and will be eating it with some Faver beans and a nice chianti.

Doh !!

...But his boxes DO have rounded corners & the shoes look so good compared to most of the shitty fakes out there!

Well done for piecing it all together though mr.pure Cool

I think the only safe thing to do when spending your hard earned, is to only buy from reputable dealers, websites or from each other - i know it will cost abit more but better that than stuck with fakes!

Can anyone confirm if the consortiums have "adidas" moulded in to the back part of the sole (inline with the heel tabs) like normal superstars???

Some people think i'm obsessed... but i just think i'm well dressed!

Yeah, it's looking like the top bit of information is defunked already.
My FP's haven't got that Adidas thing your talking about.
Do you mean on the sole or on the shoe back ?
Sole, no, shoeback, no.

I meant moulded in the base of the sole (the tread) at the very back inline with the heel tab (directly above the wolfs? ears on the pic below)

Unfortunately it's obviously not on the vintage sole as you would have said if it was but all the fakes of normal superstars i've seen have never had it - i just thought it maybe another way of telling whether they're fake or real but it's not the case.
