I’ve already written a projection post on the Jordan 1 royal Toe, see link below for access to the article
The replica industry has already made fake pairs of the Air Jordan 1 royal toe, and today we’ll be learning about preventive ways to avoid the replicas. I was able to collect images of legitimate pairs from authorized third party sellers for the comparison. Be sure to also do your own homework since this isn’t an exhaustive list. Both shoes used in this comparison are of size 9.5’s.
(1) The heel liner is much thicker on the authentic pair ( the yellow line are meant to convey the difference in the gap)
(2)The gap between the edge of the white panel overlay and the edge of the black overlay is wider on the fake pair ( remember both pairs are size 9.5’s)
(3) the cut of the leather is almost flat on the fake pair and obtuse on the authentic pair
The spacing between the elements of the wings on the heel logo is wider on the fake ( see oval circles)
You can see how the letters the “Air Jordan” text are completely crooked on the fake pair
(1) I drew a red line to show you that if the holes of the toebox were extended, they would almost bisect the crevice.
(2) The crevice is very shallow on the fake pair
No comment needed in the picture above, the differences are pretty obvious ( see yellow lines)
The gap between the bottom of the AIR text and the edge of the tongue tab is bigger on the fake pair.
Again no comment needed here, the nuances are obvious. There you have it folks.
