Real Vs Fake Air Jordan 5 Fresh Prince- Quick Tips To Identify The Fakes

Sharing is caring!

This is my first real vs fake comparison of the year 2019 and the shoes in question are the Jordan 5’s Fresh Prince. I’m actually surprised that it took bootleggers this long to throw these on the market. Both the authentic and the fake pairs used in this comparison are size 9’s so be mindful of that.

The “Air Jordan” text on the inside of the tongue is supposed to be upside down ( but that’s an easy fix, worth mentioning though) especially if the first batch of fakes comes out the same. The real pair has a textile sockliner while the fake pair has some type of nylon component ( see yellow arrows).

The netting on the extension of the tongue is clear on the authentic pair and icey blue on the fake pair.

The “West Philadelphia” text is barely legible on the fake pair ( see red square) and you can also see how the purple color differs between both pairs.

The leather overlay underneath the tongue is wider on the fakes ( see red square). The jumpman logo between both pair appears different and the red arrow pointing down shows you how the tongue of the fake pair has on oblique side ( it’s supposed to be vertical). The fake tongue is also a bit shorter and not very vibrant.

The box label is longer on the fake pair ( you can see how there is spacing between the label and lid on the authentic pair). The upc code is supposed to be the same size both shoes are size 9’s ( but is obviously different).

The letters and numbers on the fake pair box’s label are thicker and snow white.

No comments here, the nuances are obvious ( different production dates, upc codes etc…)

You can see how the “J” extends further down on the real pair sockliner; the contrast in the colors between both sockliner is obvious.
