This year’s Quai tournament in France highlighted the Jordan 3 silhouette. The shoe was limited but hasn’t really been coveted by many, I particularly don’t the colorway but to each his own. Bootleggers always target limtied sneakers and the Quai 54 3 isn’t an exception, here are quick ways to identify it.
The leather material on the real pair has more vivid wrinkles; the gap between the edge of the midsole and the air unit is bigger on the authentic pair. Moreover, the fake air unit has marks all over its screen ( poor craftsmanship).
You can clearly see the difference in the texture of the leather on the panels ( vivid patterns on the authentic pair). The pink color on the authentic pair is dark but of a lighter shade on the fake pair ( see yellow arrow).
You can clearly see how the tab is way below the liner on the fake pair ( see yellow arrow). The yellow rectangle highlights the cut of the leather on the heel ( it appears more rounded and deeper on the legitimate pair).
The mid section pods aren’t of the same material ( if you zero in on it you’ll see it).
A view at the back of the shoes gives you a better look at the differences in the height of the tab on the back ( see yellow rectangles).
The outsole is of a lighter shade of ocean blue on the fake pair.
The picture above is self explanatory.
