Like if this guide is helpful

Genuine Nike Huarache Love / Hate will have a red and black leopard print insole inside the trainer. It will also have a LARGE Nike logo with tick/swoosh on the leopard print insole - like the logo on the box. If the don't have the leopard print they should at least have the LARGE logo. On the box label it should say AIR HUARACHE QS and have the numers 700878 XXX (the last 3 numbers should something like 600 / 006 ect).
On the shoe size label on the inside of the tongue, under the laces - the date shouldn't be 03/24/13 (as shown on my fake ones) or any date BEFORE September 12th 2014 which was the UK release date. They were released earlier in the USA and Australia but this was also in 2014.
The 4th picture shows a genuine size label with the UK date format 06/11/14.

I hope you found this guide informative :-)
My son asked me to buy him some Huaraches at Christmas. We went to Selfridges,  Foot Asylun, JD Sports & some other shops but couldn't get his size. I decided to buy off eBay - which was a mistake. I was fooled by the pictures (taken off the internet) & the exceptional price - £99.99 which was a lot cheaper than any other Buy-it-now price.
Big mistake!
Sadly my 12 year old son, who these were bought for using his Christmas money, hasn't got a pair of genuine Huaraches as they cost more than he had or was willing to pay :-(
He was actually the one to point out how he knew these were fake. He also said that the Foot Locker bag that they came in, inside the Nike box, was also a fake!!! Something about the logo & stripes, which went over my head!
Below are 3 pictures taken from my fake Huaraches. Take note of the insole with fake logo and the USA date format with fake date under CM 28  in picture 3.
