How can you tell if the Jordan 4 White Midnight Navy you’re about to buy is the real deal? Well, before you make your purchase, it’s important that you know how to spot a fake pair! In this post, we’ll give you some tips on how to identify a fake Air Jordan 4 White Midnight Navy, so that you can avoid being scammed. Thanks for reading and stay vigilant out there!
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.
The netting area is more compacted on the fake pair, see red square. The gap between the midsole overlay and the stitching along the netting area is much smaller on the authentic pair ( see red dash). The netting area is adjacent to the edge of the side panel on the fake pair ( see red arrow). On the real pair, you’ll see that the netting area isn’t adjacent to the edge near the front. The spacing between the heel liner and the wings is much wider on the authentic pair, see red circle.
The grey color on the fake is much more pale ( greenish grey on the fakes) whereas the grey is of a darker shade on the real pair, you’ll recognize this more as we continue to highlight the flaws.
Once again, zero on the grey color and also notice how there are more speckles on the real pair than there are on the fakes.
The real pair above is my own pair. As you can see the grey color is of a darker shade on the legitimate pair. The Fake Air Jordan 4 White Midnight Navy has a paler shade of grey, see red squares and rectangles. The yellow dash shows you how the heel overlay is cut a little higher on the fake pair. The red arrow shows you how the wrist of the jumpman is thinned out on the replica pair.
I confirmed the differences in the grey color with another video on Youtube courtesy of Hegotkickz. As you can see, the grey is really pale on the fakes, and the speckles are very minimal on the replica pair as well.
The black light revealed the dotted or trace marks on the back of the fake pair, see red circle.
Inside Of The Tongue Of The Fake Jordan 4 White Midnight Navy
The first noticeable difference is the color, the authentic pair features a midnight navy shade while the fake one appears to be royal blue. You’ll notice how the horiztonal lines are clearly defined on the real pair.
The fake pair has a smaller box, the yellow lines highlight the differences in the height. The grey color on the inside is again greenish and pale grey on the fake pair.
The fake pair comes with the suggested retail tear up sticker while most authentic pairs no longer have that , see yellow arrows.
The speckles on the fake pair’s tissue paper are of a darker shade, see red circles.
The wording on the back of the insole is first larger on the fakes but the print looks awful as well ( poor craftsmanship). And it is also more shiny on the replica pair.
