How to Tell the Difference Between Real and Fake Sneakers

Customers can’t avoid the urge to purchase imitation goods — for less money than the originals, of course — even as major brands battle illicit copies. The worst scenario is when crooks market a low-cost commodity for a high price while convincing customers that it is genuine. You’re browsing the web casually when you come across a listing that seems to be too nice to be true; $59.99 for a new pair of Jordans. Maybe you’ll find a pair for $49.95 at a flea market stall. Perhaps you struck it rich and discovered a fantastic deal. However, the fact is that it is almost definitely too good to be true. Fakes and knockoffs are becoming more realistic, and the average consumer is easily fooled. They are not flawless replicas. You can spot a fake and save your hard-earned money by keeping a few things in mind. We’ll show you how to tell whether your Jordans are real or false in this post.


The best way to say if they are fakes would be the classic Jordan “Jumpman.” Look for certain parts of the emblem that are out of proportion. Also, double-check that the logo is in the correct location; many fakes have the Jumpman’s arms or legs located incorrectly. Often, make sure you look at the logo on the shoe’s tongue. This emblem should be embroidered in high-quality fabric. Many fakes would be made of vinyl or have low-quality embroidery.


A nine-digit style number should be on the inside tag of the shoe. This number should be found under the country of origin. Make sure this number corresponds to the definition on the Nike website. If you look at the package, you should be able to find the same details on the manufacturing mark. The logo should be written on this mark, which should be placed on the side of the package.


Be sure to pay attention to the shoe’s structure. Take a close look at the detail near the laces. Are they all straight, with even spacing between them? Take note of the stitching consistency as well. Pay special attention to the shoe’s sole. It’s a fake if the stitching is frayed or uneven. Also look for the midsole stage. The change from the bottom of the shoe to the front of the shoe occurs here. The midsole point on real Jordans is below the last lace hole. The sole pattern on newer Air Jordans is also distinct. Under the first transparent rubber bottom, the Jumpman logo can be seen.


Fake Jordans are often smaller than genuine Jordans. The gloss on fakes isn’t as obvious as it is on genuine products. If the shoe polish does not seem to be authentic, it may be a warning that they are. Always use a trustworthy seller while shopping online. A good seller will have all of the details you require—such as these options—so you can double-check authenticity. We hope you gleaned some wisdom from this short guide on how to tell if Jordans are real or fake. Don’t forget to share this article with your friends so they don’t waste their money either.
