If you’re a sneakerhead, then you know that the Jordan 1 Bred Toe is one of the most coveted shoes out there. But with its popularity comes a lot of fake versions of the shoe flooding the market. So how can you spot a fake Air Jordan 1 Bred Toe? Here are some quick tips to legit check your pair. But first, let’s go through our preliminary steps.

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.

Back: Liner & Spacing

As you can see, the heel liner is much thicker on the authentic pair, see yellow arrows. I also added the yellow line to show you how much deeper the leather cut is on the legitimate pair.

Midsole Pattern

The markings on the midsole are more apparent on the real pair. You can still see them on the fakes but they are a bit more subtle.

Toe Area: Perforations

The holes/perforations are bigger on the Fake Air Jordan 1 Bred toe pair. Also if you zero in on the placement of the perforations, on the first set of  holes coming from the left, the first hole of the fake pair correspond to the second hole on the real pair. ( see yellow line).

Medial Side: Leather Material

The leather used on the fake pair is slightly of a harder texture, see yellow squares. You’ll notice that the leather is softer on the real pair. The yellow arrow shows you how much thicker the edges are on the fakes. And the red circle shows you the crooked stitching on the replica pair.

Wings logo

It’s a bit hard to see but the wings logo of the real pair is slightly glossier. Also zero in on the spacing between the elements. The spacing between the feathers, ball and text is slightly wider on the retail pair. But I do have to admit that the replica pair looks immaculate.

Lace bag

The lace bag is shorter on the real pair, and the color tone is also different ( more blood like on the authentic pair).

Insoles: Back

There is almost no parallel lines ( patterns) on the back of the fake pair’s insole as opposed to the very vivid lines on the legitimate pair.

Box label

The font of the letters and numbers is bolder on the fake pair, see all the red squares.

There you have it folks, this post was derived from a video I watched on Youtube courtesy of Jacob Marcelius. This is probably one of the best pair of fake Jordan 1’s I’ve seen in a while.  I’ll update the post as soon as a the fakes get an upgrade.
