About two weeks ago, I was contacted by the owner of kickzoon.com ( a replica selling website) who wanted me to review a pair of shoes for him. I told him that it was against my policy to do so since one of the primary function of my site is- exposing fakes. He still insisted on sending a pair of shoe for a comparison and i acquiesced to his request. The shoe sent was the Air Jordan 1 Japan Co. The owner of PLUG ( a third party marketplace) was also gracious enough to send me a pair of legitimate/authentic Jordan 1 Japan Co to help me with this comparison. I’ll invite you to watch the video thoroughly and if you’re interested in purchasing authentic pairs of this model be sure to visit getplug.us
Here are some additional side by side pictures
The fake box has a darker/somber shade of grey than the authentic box ( the legitimate box is a lot lighter, see picture above)
There is a subtle difference here that is really hard to catch, I hope you were able to spot it. The authentic tissue paper has more shinier details on its jumpman than the fake one. The fake paper’s jumpman logo isn’t as vibrant.
The fake box’s label is missing the MSRP “tear up” sticker at the end. That doesn’t mean much because sneakers that are released outside the USA do not usually have that sticker, but this is still an important detail to mention. The font of the letters and numbers on the fake box label appear thicker than the ones on the authentic box label ( more refined).
