So grab your shoes and let’s get started!
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.
Side: Fake Air Jordan 1 High Bordeaux
Toe: Real Vs Fake Air Jordan 1 High Lucky Green
This is the first time I’ve seen a fake pair with a less bumpy toe than its authentic counterpart. When you zero in on the yellow arrows and the lines, you can clearly see that the real pair has a higher angle of elevation than the fake pair.
The gap between the midsole and the tab is slightly higher on the fake pair. And if you zero in on the heel panel, the fake pair comes in a darker shade of green. The gap between the heel liner and the back overlay is slightly wider on the real pair, it is cut deeper at its bottom ( see yellow line). But as you can clearly recognize, the differences are very subtle.
The Nike Air text has longer letters on the authentic pair and comes in a lucky green color shade. The fake pair has a different shade of green, it is very obvious. In addition, the swoosh logo is more sharp and pointy on the authentic pair, and the gap between the Nike text and the tongue liner is slightly wider on the real pair.
The extension of the tongue extends much further than the base of the green laces on the Fake air jordan 1 high lucky green pair, see yellow arrows. The red arrow shows you how the green color is flat on the fakes and lucky green (more vibrant) on the legitimate pair.
Fake Jordan 1 Lucky Green Insoles
The back of the fake pair’ insole is more rugged and of a darker tone. The references aren’t the same between both pairs, the fakes have the Dreamcell text while the real pair doesn’t have that.
The grey color on the footbed isn’t the same between both pairs, see yellow arrow. The Fake pair comes with a longer and yellow tape while the legit pair comes in a white and shorter tape. The counterfeit pair only features one hole while the real pair has two.
The lace boxes don’t have the same brown color, it is a lighter shade on the real pair. The Jumpman logo is more subtle on the real pair, see red arrows.
The authentic pair has a much wider box, see yellow lines. And the green colors on the Nike text and swoosh aren’t the same between both pairs. The authentic pair comes in lucky green while the fake has a darker shade of green.
The real pair also comes in a darker box and it is also much higher than the fakes.
Black Light Test: Real Vs Fake Jordan 1 High Lucky Green
The outsole of the authentic pair glows under the black light while the fake pair doesn’t.
If it wasn’t clear before, now this is quite clear, the fake pair’s outsole does not glow under the black light while the authentic pair exceedingly does.
