Sharing is caring!

I wrote a projection post on the Off White Jordan 5 Sail this morning, you can read it by visiting the link below

Off White Air Jordan 5 Sail Fire Red DH8565-100, How Many Pairs Possibly Made & Resale Value

I also wanted to warn you about the fake Off White Air Jordan 5 Fire Red Sail that has already hit the market. Since I don’t have an actual legitimate pair on hands, I opted to take a screenshot of an authentic pair I saw on youtuber foamersimpson channel. These are just preventing measures to avoid being taken advantage of. Before I point out the flaws I found, here are some of preliminary steps you can take

1. Smell the shoes

One of the dead giveaway is the smell/odor of the glue uses to patch up the shoe. If the glue smell is really strong to the point of irritating your nostrils, then you’ve probably being dealt a fake pair.

2.Proof of Purchase

Ask for a receipt to check out the provenance of the shoe you’re receiving. There are only 100-110 stores that are receiving this shoe, click here for the list. That means if you’re buying this shoe from a third party seller, his/her receipt better be an original one and it must be from the one of  the retailers in the list provided.

Now here are some of the differences I spotted

The midsole of the fake pair has a darker yellow in contrast to the lighter yellow on the authentic pair.

I would encourage you to stay away from any seller whose pair inside label has the same production date as the one in the picture above.

UPDATE: I watched a video on youtube via Trutru vs Fufu and here is a rundown of some of the most important things you are to look for

You can clearly see that if you zero in on the tongue’s liner, there appears to be  blue pen marks on the fake pair ( that’s due to the poor crafstmanship). I’ll encourage to check that area on any shoe you purchase to make sure it’s mark less.

The zip tie has a darker shade of yellow on the fake pair, it’s pretty obvious see picture above.
