Today’s subject are the Supreme x Nike Air Force 1s.

This guide works for all colorways of the box logo Air Forces: White, Black, Wheat.

Let’s get going.

How to tell if Supreme Air Forces are fake

You can tell if Supreme Air Forces are fake by checking the Swoosh logo’s stitching. Fakes often have thicker and more solid threads.

Authentic pairs are all the same: flawless.

1. Swoosh

When talking about the Swoosh, we’re referring to Nike‘s logo.
