But 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.
WINGS: Real Vs Fake Jordan 1 High Royal Reimagined
TONGUE: Fake Jordan 1 High Royal Reimagined
The tongue tab is more extended ( longer) on the authentic pair, and if you closely at the Nike Air text, it is of a darker shade of blue on the real pair. The gap between the bottom of the tab and the bottom edge of the stitches on the extension of the tongue is much larger on the fakes.
SIDES & Toe
The toe box is slightly more bumpy on the fake pair as opposed to the sleek toe on the real one, see yellow arrows.
The fake pair has almost ashy grey underlays while the real pair is of a darker shade of black, see yellow circles. The swoosh logo is also of a darker shade of blue on the legitimate pair, see yellow arrows.
Same problem above, the real pair is of a darker shade of black while the fake one is black greyish.
The Nike Air text is clear, legible and is made with an indelible ink on the authentic pair’s insole, but on the fakes, the quality of the text is subpar, and will probably peel off after on or two wears.
BOX: Fake Jordan 1 High Royal Reimagined
The fake box is much shorter than the real one, see yellow lines. And you can also see how the real box is much darker. The Nike text is also of a bolder tone on the real box.
