The upcoming Reimagined Jordan 3 White Cement has had replicas floating around for months, but we held out to provide you with genuine side-by-side shots so that you could accurately tell originals from fakes. Here are a few key tips you can use to quickly identify the fake Air Jordan 3 White Cement Reimagined. First, let’s go through our preliminaries.
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.
You can clearly see the difference the leather used between both pairs. The replica pair has a really tough and rough texture with small geometric like shapes on its surface.
Here is a much better picture of the lateral sides that clearly show you the contrast between the leather material used on both pairs.
The holes are not fully punched in on the Fake Jordan 3 White Reimagined eyestay, zero in on red circles. The red arrows show you the contrast in color between the lace holes and the actual shoe. On the authentic pair, the colors have almost the same shade of white.
The authentic pair has a more yellowed midsole than the fake pair, see red arrows.
Heel Overlay: Fake White Cement Jordan 3 Reimagined
The cement print pattern is clearly not the same ( I’m referring to the direction and the size of the prints), zero in on the yellow arrows. The red arrow shows you how the heel overlay extends much further on the authentic pair. And if you close in on the air unit, it is much wider with a cleaner screen on the legitimate pair.
The patterns are almost horizontal on the fake pair and more slanted and vertical on the real pair.
You can clearly see how even with an updated fake pair, the toe area is still slightly more bumpy ( see yellow arrow). The grey color on the outsole isn’t the same between both pairs, see red arrow and thee are also inconsistencies with the cement print ( the print has a higher cut on the real pair).
The fake pair has a sail ( off white) color on the toe area while the real pair is actually white.
You can clearly see how the elephant print has a higher cut on the real pair, and the double stiches are closer to one another on the legit pair.
The fake pair has a bulkier toe and its tip is forms almost a 90 degree angle, see yellow arrows. The authentic pair is more curvy.
You can clearly see the difference in the toe box in the picture above., zero in on the angles and directions of the yellow lines.
Nike Hang Tag
The real tag is attached to the shoe by a plastic tie whereas the fake ones come with a silver chain.
In this updated picture, you can see that the cement print is of a lighter shade of grey on the real pair. Also the heel tab is of a lighter shade , see red circles.
There are inconsistencies with the elephant print overlay, the right pair of the fakes has a lower cut, see yellow dash.
The gap between the “AIR” text and the edge of the heel overlay is much wider on the fake pair, see red rectangle. The “AIR” text letters have a bigger font on the real pair, see red arrows.
Toe: Top view
The authentic pair features widow peak while the fake doesn’t , see red and yellow rectangles. In addition to that, the edges are rougher on the fake Jordan 3 white cement Reimagined, see red arrows.
The markings on the back of the insole are more subtle on the real pair and very vivid on the fakes, see red squares. You’ll also notice that the real pair’s insole has a “12k” reference that is missing on the fake pair.
The Nike air logo comes in a much smaller font and has been printed with cheaper ink, you can see how wrinkly it appears. It will probably peel off as soon as one stesp foot in the shoe.
The fake pair has a much smaller lid, see yellow dash. You’ll also see that the fakes come with a much smaller Nike air logo, see yellow circle.
The fake pair comes with a much bolder red jumpman , see yellow arrow. And the real pair is also of a lighter shade of black, see yellow square.
There a few things to point out on the box and its label. The fake label has a thicker edge at its bottom ( see yellow arrows). The spacing between the R and J and the 3 and R are much wider on the fake label ( see yellow circles).The Jumpman logo is also much thicker on the replica pair. And finally the counterfeit box has a darker shade, see red rectangle.
