Welcome back to another installment of our Legit Check series. Today, I’ll swiftly guide you through identifying Fake Air Jordan 12 Brilliant Orange sneakers. The reps have been in circulation for several weeks now, but I’ve been awaiting the official images from Jordan Brand to conduct a comprehensive comparison. I’ve pitted them against the images of the fake pairs, and here are the results. 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: Real Vs Fake Air Jordan 12 Brilliant Orange
Side: Plastic Tab
The differences are the same on the image above, but you’ll notice that the authentic pair features widow peaks on its throat line and the fake doesn’t, see yellow circle.
Insoles: Fake Jordan 12 Brilliant Orange
On the right insole, you’ll notice how the graphics do not have the same color shade, zero in on the green circles. And the jumpman logo is of a lighter and duller shade of orange on the fakes, see red arrow.
The Jumpman logo comes in a bolder shade of red on the real pair, see yellow arrow. and for the other differences, zero in on the yellow circles, they are pretty obvious.
The carbon fiber shank shapes are closer and thicker on the real pair and slightly thinner and spaced out on the fakes, see yellow square. The yellow circles highlight how the black shapes are more vivid and bigger on the real pair. The yellow arrow shows you how the black outline is adjacent to the edges on the legit pair. On the fake, there is a space between the outline and the edges.
The fake comes in the regular Red and Black box while the authentic pair comes in a special box.
There you have it folks, I hope you will be able to sniff out the Fake Air Jordan 12 Brilliant Orange with these tips. I’ll update the post soon with more nuances once the shoe releases officially and I have access to more pictures. You can check out our other real vs fake comparisons via the Legit Check page.
