You can see the characteristics of genuine Fila Disruptor sneakers on the official website of the manufacturer. There is a detailed description of the product.

Check Fila Disruptor sneakers by barcode:

Enter 13 digits of the barcode:

In order not to fall for a fake, because a search engine on the Internet will give out an innumerable number of online stores (you may not immediately figure out where the original is sold), you should pay attention to the visual examination of a pair of sneakers. You can recognize the real Fila Disruptor from a fake using the following parameters:


It is recommended to start identifying a fake by inspecting the box. Branded packaging is carried out without printing defects. The spelling of the brand should not contain spelling errors.

The original shoe box is made of thick cardboard, so it does not wrinkle or tear during transportation. Counterfeit manufacturers save money on this by packing sneakers in soft cardboard boxes. Therefore, fakes are usually found in crumpled and even torn boxes.

Copy and original Fila Disruptor

The sneakers themselves are packaged in paper, which is printed with the Fila brand name. Fake copies may be wrapped in plain white paper or be completely blank. Fake paper can be replaced with a plastic bag.

Replica boxes fall apart after opening. The walls of the package are stratified.


There must be a sticker on the box with the following information: serial number, article number, model name, pair size.

There must be an information sticker on the packaging. The original has:

  • vendor code;
  • shoe size;
  • model name;
  • mini drawing of sneakers;
  • barcode.

A fake has no sticker or contains false information.

Labels with inscriptions on sneakers should be sewn evenly and neatly. Threads between letters when moving from one to another are a sign of falsification.


After inspecting the packaging, it is important to start checking the appearance of the sneakers. Low-quality replicas give themselves out as obvious defects. They may also give off an unpleasant odor.

The original Fila Disruptor shoes have even seams, stitches with the same loops. If we talk about fake, then the seams of such products are uneven, the threads can stick out in different directions.

Looking through a pair of shoes, you should pay attention to the heel line. Original sneakers will be flat, cheap copies will be slightly curved.

On Phil's sneakers, the logo is affixed in several places. It should not have spelling errors, extra stitches or protruding threads. Between the letters in branded shoes there is no thread of transition from one character to another.

The logo is also present on the tongue. The original is much more accurate.

Sneakers on the inside and toe are perforated. Moreover, the holes on the original product are much smaller than on the counterfeit.

The original perforation holes do not have notches. They are all equal.

For a fake, perforation is performed on insufficiently sharp equipment. In some cases, the holes in the replicas serve only a decorative purpose.

Real Philas come with elastic soles. It contains a corporate image. From the sole of the original should not come from extraneous odors. Fakes may have increased rigidity and difficulty in bending.

    The article will certainly help many with saving money for such brands that make fakes. Many, of course, got burned on fakes until our time, and even in the future, many will fall for the tricks of promotions and discounts. I think that many smart people will not fall for such tricks.

    I think that this brand of shoes is not often faked because it is not very common around the world. But in general, there is a certain percentage of fakes, which of course need to be treated with caution, since there are stores that do not want to take the goods back.

    Возможно кроссовки Fila Disruptor несколько и уступают по популярности таким брендам как Nike, Fdidas и т. д. Однако, кроссовки Fila Disruptor именно от производителя, то есть оригинальные вполне могут поспорить качеством, удобством и эргономикой даже с самыми раскрученными брендами. С этой точки зрения эта статья точно полезна и актуальна, чтобы не быть обманутым и не купить подделку.
