Along with each step of this guide on how to spot fake AJ1 Black Toe shoes, we are going to link fake vs real AJ1 Black Toe images so that you’d easily differentiate between the labeled authentic and replica Black Toe AJ1s.

How to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe

If you want the shortcut, then keep in mind that the fastest way to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe pairs is to check the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text. The replica Air Jordan 1 pairs never have their text on the tongue label in tune with the legit pairs’ text, and therefore, this is the most reliable sign of authenticity for the AJ1 Black Toe.

Step 1: Real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe interior tongue label

As we’ve previously mentioned in the shortcut, we consider the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text as the most reliable sign of authenticity when speaking of the Air Jordan 1 sneakers.

First of all, let’s have a look at the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe image in order to easily visualise and understand the differences between the fake vs real Black Toe AJ1s.

aj1 black toe fake vs real

In the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have quite a few flaws in terms of text positioning and font-weight.

Let’s begin with them one by one: if you look at the “TRADEMARKS” text in the real vs fake AJ1 Black Toe image above, you can notice how the fake shoes have their letters in this text looking wavier than the authentic shoes’ letters.

By wavy, we mean that the letters look like they are on a wave since some of them are bigger than the other.

On the other hand, the legit Air Jordan 1 Black Toe sneakers have their letters placed evenly and correctly, all being at the same level.

Then, moving on to the “SWOOSH ®” text, the fake shoes have their letters looking wavier and slanted, once again, while the legit Black Toe AJ1s have their letters correct place.

On the line below the previous text, we also have another “SWOOSH” text, where the same flaws from above are visible, the fake shoes having their text a lot wavier than the authentic shoes’ text.

Not only that, but in this “SWOOSH” text, you can also see how the fake shoes have their letter “W” bigger than the rest of the letters, while on the authentic AJ1 Black Toe shoes, all of the letters have the same size.

Going to the “MARQUES” text two lines lower, you can see in the real vs fake AJ1 Black Toe image above how the fake shoes have their letters waving and looking less defined than the authentic shoes’ letter.

The defining problem on the fake shoes is given by the fact that the letters are poorly printed on the tongue label, while on the legit shoes, you can notice the difference in quality, having a better printing job than the fake shoes.

Lastly, throwing a quick look at the “QUALITE” text in the fake vs real AJ1 Black Toe image above, you can easily notice the same waving problem again, on the fake shoes.

Step 2: Check your Air Jordan 1 Black Toe for the hourglass shape

Moving on to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe shoes, we are going to flip the shoes to the rear side, and check out their shape.

The authentic shoes must look like an hourglass, being bulkier and curvier on the upper and the bottom side of the shoes, and narrower in the middle.

As mentioned at the beginning of this guide on how to spot fake AJ1 Black Toe, let’s first have a look at the reference real vs fake AJ1 Black Toe image.

In the Air Jordan 1 Black Toe real vs fake image above, you can see how the authentic shoes have a curvier look on the upper and the bottom sides of the leather side, and how in the middle, they are narrower.

On the other hand, the counterfeit Air Jordan 1 Black Toe shoes have their shape curvy as well, but not as pronounced as the authentic shoes’ shape.

In order to notice this better and understand this the right way, let’s have a look at another fake vs real AJ1 Black Toe comparison, but this time with a little help from us.

In the fake vs real AJ1 Black Toe image above, we drew four lines, as you may notice: two in order to show you the shape of the legit shoes, and the other two for the fake shoes.

Looking at the authentic Black Toe 1’s, you can see how they have a bumpy and curvy shape, and while the fake shoes are also a bit curvy, they’re not as curvy and pronounced as they are supposed to be (that’s why the lines are less curvy as well – to point out the shape of the shoes).

Step 3: Look at the Air Jordan logo’s text

Aas for the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe, you have to flip your shoes to the side and check out the text on the classic Air Jordan logo.

In order to give you the main idea of what you should check your shoes for on the Air Jordan logo, let’s have a look at the fake vs real AJ1 Black Toe image.

The fake shoes have their letters looking thicker, but if you look closely at the left leg in the letter “A” seen in the “AIR” text, you can see how the fake shoes have their left leg in the “A” looking thinner than it is supposed to be.

On the other hand, the authentic shoes have the same font-weight for all of the letters, especially on each side of their letters.

As we’ve mentioned it two paragraphs above, the main idea is that the fake shoes have their letters in the “AIR JORDAN” text looking thicker than they are supposed to be.

And at the same time, both of the letters in the “TM” text are also thicker and bigger on the fake shoes, while on the authentic Black Toe AJ1s, the letters are thinner and smaller.

For the fourth step of the guide on how to legit check Air Jordan 1 Black Toe sneakers, we will look out for the wings in the same Air Jordan classic logo from the previous step.

The fake shoes commonly have their wings in the logo improperly positioned, which is also visible in the fake vs real AJ1 Black Toe image above.

The fake shoes almost have no distance between their wings, while the authentic shoes have the same bigger amount of space between each wing.

Step 5: Check the toe box of your Air Jordan 1 Black Toe

Proceeding to the fifth way on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe shoes, we are going to look at the real vs fake AJ1 Black Toe pairs on the toe box.

The toe box’s perforations

The toe box is basically the front side of the shoes, where the toes fit in. We are first going to check out the perforations, and then we’ll look at the weight of the toe boxes on both the fake vs real AJ1 Black Toes.

In the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their perforations on the toe box looking too wide and too big.

The authentic shoes have their holes smaller and finer than the fake shoes’ perforations, which from a top-down angle, they are visibly bigger and wider than what they supposed to look like.

The toe box’s weight

With this being said for the perforations, you should now check the weight of the toe box of your Air Jordan 1 Black Toe as well.

To give you a better idea of what the toe box should look like, we are going to link the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Black Toe image with the weight of the toe box right below.

In the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Black Toe image above, we have pointed out how the authentic shoes must have their toe box looking deflated and less big than what the toe box of the fake shoes looks like.

A common flaw for the fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe (and no only this colourway) is that they have their toe box looking over-inflated, thicker and bigger it is than supposed to be.

As for the sixth step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe sneakers, we are going to check out the fake vs real AJ1 Black Toe pairs for the Nike Swoosh logo on the side.

To help you see this easier, we drew a line above and below the fake vs real AJ1 Black Toe’s Nike Swoosh logo, to point out the differences in the size and placement of the Swooshes.

Looking at the legit Black Toe AJ1’s, you can see how they have their Swoosh logo placed higher, since the upper line is smaller, and the bottom line is bigger than the fake shoes’ lines added by us.

The fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe have their Nike Swoosh logo placed too low, as it is too far away from the top of the shoes, and too close to the midsole.

Step 7: Verify the patch on the rear side of the Black Toe Air Jordan 1

For the seventh step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe sneakers, we are going to look at the real vs fake AJ1 Black Toe pairs for the patch on the rear side, where the two Nike Swoosh logos meet.

air jordan 1 black toe fake vs real

In the fake vs real Black Toe AJ1 image above, we’ve pointed out how the authentic shoes’ rear patch has to be boxier and narrower than the fake shoes’ patch.

The fake shoes have their patch looking good in height, but its main problem is that it is too wide on the counterfeit Air Jordan 1 Black Toe.

Step 8: Real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe cross-stitching

As for the eighth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe sneakers, you just have to check the placement of the cross-stitching on the side of the shoes.

We call this “cross-stitching” the “L” looking line that’s placed on the side of the shoes, crossing above the Nike Swoosh logo.

So as to understand this easier, let’s now have a look at the reference fake vs real AJ1 Black Toe image below.

In the fake vs real AJ1 Black Toe image above, we have pointed out how they fake shoes have their cross-stitching placed too close to the Nike Swoosh logo.

On the other hand, the authentic shoes have their cross-stitching placed further away from the Nike Swoosh logo, which is easily noticeable in the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Black Toe image above.
