If you’re a sneaker head, then you know that spotting fake Air Jordans can be tricky. But with a little knowledge and some common sense, you can quickly identify a pair of knock-off sneakers. In this  post, we’ll teach you how to spot the fake Air Jordan 11 Low Pure Violet. The shoe doesn’t officially release till late in the Spring but the replica industry has already made them available and unsuspecting buyers might fall prey to them. Let’s begin with our preliminaries.

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.

Let’s be honest here, If I hadn’t put a Fake indicator on the picture, how would you know that these shoes were not legitimate? This is how hard it is now to spot replicas, they are built with identical materials as the authentic pairs, and the flaws are very minimal.

Insole Logo

This is the supporting evidence. The picture is from a fake pair of the Jordan 4 Oreo, you see how easily the logo peels off

The Jumpman logo on the insole will peel off as soon as the wearer steps foot in the shoe. That’s because the ink used to manufacture it is of cheap quality and not indelible.

Inside Label

The shoes were produced too early, that’s usually the case with fakes. If someone offers you a pair with a date similar or identical to the one in the picture above, I’ll strongly encourage you to stay away from it.

Cool grey 11 outsole, the authentic pair’s carbon fiber shank is light/grey

Most Jordan 11’s have somewhat of a semi translucent sole and fake pairs tend to miss this detail. You can barely through the outsole of this pair ( zero in on the yellow circles). Also zero in on the carbon fiber shank, it is supposed to be of a lighter shade of black but the pair above has a darker shade. I added the Cool Grey 11 comparison picture for more evidence.

Box Label

The box label is another good way to spot fake sneakers. The jumpman logo is too big ( chubby) on the label. Additionally the date in French doesn’t quite match up with the one in English in terms of positioning. The color code in English is White/ Pure Violet-White. In French it ought to be Blanc/ Pure violet-Blanc but it reads Blanc/blanc/Pure violet.

In the video below, I discuss the RFID in depth, this is a very key detail and I’ll invite you to watch the video.

There you have it folks, I hope you will be able to spot any Fake Air Jordan 11 low Pure violet with these tips. I’ll update the post as soon as a new batch of fakes appears. In the meantime, do not buy this shoe from anyone unless all things above that I mentioned are cleared.
