I already wrote a post about the possible number of pairs of the Air Jordan 5 Fire red that were made, see post below

How Many Pairs Of the Air Jordan 5 Fire Red Could Be Possibly Made & Resale Value

I came across the fake air jordan 5 fire red a little while ago but I didn’t have access to an authentic pair for a side by side comparison. Hence I decided to hold off on writing anything about it; there was a surprise drop of the shoes last week by Jordan Brand. As a result, several folks have put the Fire Red 5 on sale on eBay and other marketplaces and I was able to fetch a couple of pictures for a comparison. Here are quick ways to identify the replica Jordan 5 Fire Red. Again this isn’t an exhaustive list, be sure to do your own homework as well. ( Both pairs are of a size 10)

(1) The peak of the lateral heel liner is higher on the authentic pair, which makes it look like a flatter parabola.

(2) You can see how much wider the base of the peak is on the fake pair

(3) The spacing between the edge of the pod and the heel stitching is wider on the authentic pair

The plastic material used on the fake pair is of cheap quality ( it’s usually very hard). You can even see the difference by just looking at the color difference between the two.

(1) The leather used on the authentic pair is of a better quality ( soft tumbled leather like) in comparison to the very synthetic feel on the fake pair

(2) The shark teeth aren’t as pointy and extended on the fake pair; and the black paint on the midsole is a bit brighter on the authentic pair

(3) You can see the shape of the indent on the outsole between both pairs is completely different

(4) The outsole is more transparent on the authentic pair than it is on the fake.

(1) The peak of the back portion of the heel liner is curvy and more extended on the legitimate pair and almost flat on the fake one.

(2) The spacing between the Nike text and the stitching at the heel is wider on the replica pair

(3) The  letters of the “AIR” text aren’t co linear on the fake pair

(4) the inclination of the liner at the heel is more obtuse on the real pair
