The box is fake, I know you’ve already heard the horror stories of the “damaged boxes” it doesn’t affect the shoe. As soon as I took the shoes off of the plastic, I smelled a strong chemical scent. I ordered a 6.5, got a 7, which is okay, the back ankle part is murderous, I felt it as soon as I slipped my feet in. There’s something off about them and I can instantly tell they are fake. (Which duh they are) But there’s just this dead giveaway. Also, the gums of the shoe are thicker than the actual vans. My originals are so crusty I don’t want to bother in taking a photo of them. All in all, you get something very close to the picture. I’d say 96%. The 4 percent is the details that bother me and just give it away like the curve of the toe and the gums. Some of the stitching is awry. I’ve ordered this before but it never came, but I got a refund. Tried again and it took 8-9 days. So, here’s your review.
