I don’t even know where and how to start this post but I’m amazed at the speed with which bootleggers are catching on to the changes in the sneaker market. I wrote a post a couple of weeks ago about a pair of Jordan that featured a QR code on its inside label, see link below
My argument was that with the advent of the QR code on the inside or box label, Nike just created more hurdles for the replica industry; but it seems like they are laughing the brand to scorn. Why am I saying that? I just came across a pair of fake jordan 11 low snakeskin loaded with two elements ( the stockX authentication tag and a QR code on its box label) as if the bootleggers were implying,
Nothing can really stop us because we run parallel to the brand’s mutations
Now I don’t want to give these crooks too much credit because a QR code on a label means nothing if it can’t be scanned, or if scanning it leads to no destination. I’m definitely going to monitor this very closely so stay tuned; since I don’t have an authentic pair of the Jordan 11 Low snakeskin as my backdrop I can’t really do a side by side comparison. All I’ll say is zero in on the inside label (especially on the production dates) and the box label and stay away from anyone offering a pair that matches what you see in the pictures below.
Even though the box label features the QR code, you can clearly see how it screams “Fake” everywhere. The text “AIRJORDAN11RETROLOWLE” is not spaced out ( now I’m not sure if the authentic pair will be the same) but that won’t be very unprofessional on Nike’s part.
PS: The Real VS Fake posts require a lot of time to write because replica/counterfeits are getting better and spotting their flaws is a meticulous task. I understand that some of you may still be unsure about the authenticity of your sneakers, this is why I’m providing the video below to give additional help.
