I wrote a projection post on the Women’s Air Jordan 1 Silver Toe a couple of days ago, see link below. I’ve spotted the fake Jordan 1 silver toe 1 several months ago and finally decided to show how to identify them. I’m planning on eventually grabbing an authentic pair for a more extensive side by side comparison, but for the meantime, the tips below can help you avoid the replica pairs. First let’s go through our preliminary steps.
1. 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
2.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.
Now let’s look at some of the flaws I spotted on the fake air jordan 1 silver toe
The fake pair doesn’t have the leather hangtag, at least the earlier version does not have it. I know that at some point, the replica factories will upgrade the counterfeits but as of now , the fakes do not bear the tag.
The wings logo between both pairs have a lot of differences. The spacing between the feathers is bigger on the fake air jordan 1 silver toe, the wings are more extended on the authentic pair as well. If you zero in on the bottom of the ball, you’ll see that there is a gap between the tip of the wing and its base, see round circle. I specifically added the arrow and the circles to put am emphasis on the problem areas.
The extra laces on the authentic pair are sparkly, shiny and have a silver tone to them while the extra laces on the fakes are gray.
The fake silver toe jordan 1 has a black box with red highlights while the authentic pair has a red box with black highlights. The “10.5” is thicker on the real pair’s label and much thinner on the fake label.
There you have it folks, so far these are the only notable nuances that were spotted.
