Once again bootleggers are ahead of schedule, they’ve already produced fake versions of the upcoming Air Jordan 4 Fire Red. At this point, we shouldn’t be surprised anymore, these folks are well organized and the replica industry is multi-million dollar one. They’ve invested in expensive machinery to come up with products that are darn near identical to the legitimate ones. I’ve written several posts in the regard, see link below
I don’t have an authentic pair of the Jordan 4 fire red to do a side by side comparison but these are easy to bust. The production label is dated to 2016 ( and that alone is a dead giveaway). The last time the Fire Red 4 was released was in 2012 so if you come across a pair with a 2016 date on its inside label, just turn the other way. Well here are pictures of the fake pairs with quick tips you can use to identify them.
The top of the box is ashy looking and the suggested retail price is $190; in 2012 the price was $160 and this is priced at $190 ( remember I mentioned the inside label, keep that in mind).
The production date is dated to 2016 and we are in 2018 so use your common sense.
I added the red lines on the sides to show you how bulky the shoes look. I’m going to add additional pics to show you how easy anyone could be fooled.
The pic above could deceive anyone, the shoe looks great from this angle so be careful and ask for additional pics ( inside label, box and style#)
There you have it folks, if you’re looking for authentic pairs, wait till the official release date or buy the older versions on StockX or eBay see listings below
