1. The replica Valentino Rockstud sneaker is on the left and the authentic Valentino sneaker is on the right.

2. When viewing the shoes from the side, you will notice that the replica Valentino Rockstud sneaker does not look as presentable as the authentic one. This is largely due to the rough edges of the leather (see lace & heel area). Furthermore, the studs are too yellowish and poorly aligned on the replica Valentino shoes.
