hey, i'm pretty sure i know what to look for in the current shoes, but i recently purchased a pair from ebay that are apparently vintage from '98. they have some clear signs that would make a new shoe fake, but how different were the older shoes? for example, these ones have the heel tag and they do not have the label on the back of the tongue. they also seem to have a poorer quality lining. since i don't own anything older than 2004, i can't really compare because they are quite different. all numbers on both shoes are the same

All of Pictures seem pretty suspect. Nipple on heel tab, bad detailing, poor quality - same numbers a bad thing. They look like fakes to me.

They look fine to me. The pre 35th anniversary supes (2005) have heel clits. Older supes don't have the tongue labels, with the different serial numbers, like the newer supes have and the crack in the heel tab and the missing piece of rubber near the shell is quite normal as they're 15 years old.

Don't be surprised if the stripes and heel tabs start cracking even more when you start wearing them, that can happen with older supes that have never been worn.

So I would say congrats with your legit pair of Argentinas. Smile

Listen to Marco over me! I can only judge from previous posts and reading a lot recently. My fake knowledge is limited.

Legit. I'm pretty sure you bought them from the same place as a few of us on here did.

Yep, I have a pair.

Really need some laces to match and to de tag them.

Yep. They are fine. Bought a pair from the same guy mentioned above. They were too small and I sold them to one of you guys. Can't remember who. Smile
