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.
When comparing the various fakes on the market, some are more convincing than others. If you take a closer look at the picture above, you’ll see that the authentic pair’s shade of black is much darker. However, keen observation will reveal that the fake pair has a more ashy hue.
Notice how the fake Travis Scott Jordan 1 has a bulkier toe box. It is very obvious and this is a recurring thing with most replica sneakers.
The details and craftmanship on the bee logo is subpar on the fake pair.
Here’s a closer look at the logos, It is hard to describe the differences but they are there if you look close enough i.e. the second set of antennas are thinner on the fake pair, the threads are almost snow white on the fakes but off white on the real pair.
One of the key differences between the authentic and fake pair is the spacing of the threads on the ball (noticeably wider apart in the counterfeit, as seen in the yellow circle). Additionally, pay attention to the shape of the A (highlighted by a red arrow)– one of its legs appears unnaturally thin.
Cactus Jack Logo
On the authentic pair, the cactus jack logo is subtle and subdued. However, a closer inspection reveals that it appears brighter and flashier on the counterfeit.
