Welcome to another edition of the Legit Check! Today we’ll be discussing how to spot the Fake Air Jordan 1 Low Year Of the Rabbit . We’ll cover a lot of the details, including the sides, the back, the swoosh logo, tongue, outsoles and more. I came across a good side by side comparison courtesy of Real Vs Fake official via Youtube and here are my findings. 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.
Toe: Real Vs Fake Air Jordan 1 Low Year Of The Rabbit
Obviously, you can see that the suede overlay at the forefoot is more hairy and furry on the authentic pair, zero in on yellow circles.
A top view of the toe area also reveals that the perforated underlays is also slightly more hairy on the real pair, see red square. and let me also add that the perforations are slightly bigger on the authentic pair as well. The red arrow shows you how the laces are more furry and wider on the legitimate pair.
The side panels are clearly smooth on the fake pair but hairy with a much rougher surface on the authentic pair, see yellow circles.
The heel tab containing the wings logo is gold on the fake pair but dark brown and gold on the legitimate pair, see red square. And if you zero in on the heel liner, you’ll notice that is is slightly much thicker and more furry on the real pair. And the heel panel is once again more hairy on the legitimate pair, see red arrows.
The tongue and its extension is sail on the fake Air Jordan 1 Year Of the Rabbit pair but white on the authentic pair, see red rectangle. And the red arrow once again shows you how much thicker and hairier the laces are on the real pair.
The rabbit logo is of a bolder shade of gold on the fake pair. And the tongue tag is slightly longer on the real pair, see red line.
The fake pair’s outsole is more glossy and bright, it is quite obvious.
Tissue Paper: Fake Jordan 1 Year Of The Rabbit
The fake pair comes with a yellow tissue paper with rabbit graphics on it while the authentic pair has a tissue paper with marble like patterns.
Box: Fake Jordan 1 Year of the rabbit
The Nike Logo is of a lighter shade of gold on the authentic pair, see red circle.
A closer look at the top of the box confirms that the Nike logo is of a lighter shade of gold on the real box. Moreover, the marble like patterns are subtle and lighter on the legit box but darker and vivid on the fake box.
The fake pairs comes with the wrong color code and name, see yellow rectangle and red arrow. And the UPC codes do not match between both labels even though the sizes are the same.
