It’s no secret that the sneaker world is full of counterfeiters. In fact, fake sneakers are so prevalent that it’s often hard to tell the real thing from the fake. However, what is surprising is how well counterfeiters have managed to stay ahead of brands themselves. Case in point: the Air Jordan 11 cherry. The shoe is scheduled to release in December, but fake pairs are already circulating and being sold. And the interesting part is, consumers are actually happy with their purchase. After all, why wait for the real thing when you can get a fake that looks just as good? It’s a testament to the skill of counterfeiters that they are able to keep up with the demand for new sneakers, and it’s also a testament to consumer demand. If there weren’t such a huge market for fake sneakers, there wouldn’t be such a thriving industry catering to it. In this post, I’ll show you what the Fake Air Jordan 11 Cherry Looks Like.

The only thing that might the pair above away is the toe area, it appears to be slightly bulky.
One of the main issues with counterfeit sneakers is the logo on the insole. The ink used on the above jumpman logo is of poor quality. It will peel off as soon as the wearer steps foot into the shoe. See example below
It is hard to point out any flaws without the backdrop of an authentic pair, but one thing is for sure, on most fake Jordan 11s , the patent leather is cut a bit too high, see example below
The threads are incredibly well done and very consistent, that’s amazing. There is nothing here that I can point out that is wrong.
Without the luxury of having an authentic pair on hands, the best way to avoid the fakes is to also check the production date on the inside label. The pair above was produced between 2/22/22 and 4/18/22. My advice would be stay away from any seller whose pair matches the production date above.
There is a widow peak ( see yellow circle) on the area adjacent to the extension of the tongue. At times, even legitimate pairs have that, but it worth mentioning.
I don’t know how translucent the outsole is going to be on the authentic pair, so it’s hard to point out any flaws here. I also see really nothing that raising my eyebrows on the carbon fiber shank.
We don’t know what the upc code is going to be just yet, so it is hard to point out any flaws. We also don’t know what the color code is.
I just wanted to show you how good these fakes look. I’m not advocating the buying of reproductions, but one thing is certain: they look great. On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you grade this Fake Air Jordan 11 Cherry? Stay tuned for more information on how to authenticate it.
Additional Tips To avoid Fake Sneakers
1. Smell the shoes ( only if you’ve already made the purchase)
One of the dead giveaway is the smell/odor of the glue uses to construct the replicas. If the glue smell is really strong to the point of irritating your nostrils, then you’ve probably being dealt a counterfeit
2.Proof of Purchase
Ask for a proof of purchase. Receipt must include details such as provenance, time of purchase, date and any other relevant information. If a seller is reluctant to provide that, I will strongly urge to refrain from following through with the purchase.
