Fake Air Jordan 12 OVO Spotted: Quick Tips to Avoid Them

The Air Jordan 12 OVO are finally going to release on Saturday October 1 in limited quantities. The shoes were birthed out of a collaboration between Drake and Jordan Brand; they are dressed in a light bone color scheme with gold accents. Months before they dropped, there were early fake pairs being auctioned on the infamous ebay; well I went ahead and gathered up a few pictures of the Fake Air Jordan 12 OVO  and did a quick comparison with an authentic pair. It is a little hard to do these comparisons when the actual shoes aren’t on hand so all additional help are welcome.

The incline on the back of the Real pair is more pronounced ( see the yellow arrow); another detail to look at is the area around the mudguard: if you look close enough, you will notice that the bumps are less visible on the real pair and the color shade is also different ( see circled area). And the gold tab on the mudguard not only has a different color shade on the real pair but also pay attention to where it ends ( on the real pair it lines up well with the midsole but on the fake one , it extends a little bit further).

I purposely used another fake pair picture because the factories always alter the shoe until it is almost identical the authentic pair. Now here the yellow arrow shows a clear difference in the way the toebox is cut ( more extended on the real pair and also closer to the midsole). Take a look at the color shade of the mudguard, it is almost white on the fake pair ( remember how darker it was on the previous picture, they tried to fix it). The threads/tracks on the outsole is more visible and pronounced on the fake pair ( see the circled areas); and again i put another emphasis on the gold tab ( extends a little further on the fake pair, see black arrows).

lastly, we have a look at the outsole and i included 2 separate illustrations; the top one is from a different fake, you can clearly see that the carbon fiber area is yellow on the fake pair ( that is what i wanted to pint out). On the bottom picture, you can also spot a color shade difference in the   “OVO” logo between the real and the fake pair.
