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

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.

This is a recurring thing with most Fake Jordan 1’s. You’ll notice that the spacing between the feathers of the wings logo is much wider on the fake pair, zero in on arrows.

The spacing between the bottom of the tongue and the edge of the bump on the tongue is wider on the fake pair, see red line.

Another major problem you can spot right away is the stitching on the tongue. They are uneven as pointed out by the red arrows. And if you look closely at the letters of the “Nike” text they are pretty wavy or spiky, the picture below will show you a much larger view.
