In this real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green legit check guide, we are going to teach you how to spot fake AJ1 pine Green sneakers in just a few simple steps to follow.

With each step of this guide on how to spot fake AJ1 Pine Green sneakers, we will link real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green images so that you’d easily spot the flaws on the counterfeit AJ1s.

The fastest way to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green sneakers is to check the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text and the back of the shoes, for the hourglass shape. The fake shoes always have their text improperly positioned and font-weighted on the tongue label, and from the back, they don’t look as curvy as they have to look.

Little details like these matter when you want to check the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green pairs of sneakers since these are the main details that can tell you whether you are looking at a real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green pair of sneakers.

This guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green applies to both of the releases for the shoes: The Pine Green 1.0 and 2.0 Air Jordan 1 shoes.

With this being said, in this real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green legit check guide you will easily learn how to differentiate between the legitimate and the counterfeit-produced shoes.

How to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green

Step 1: Fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Pine Green interior tongue label

For the first step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green sneakers, we are going to analyze the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Greens for the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text.

As we’ve said previously, we consider the interior tongue label as the most reliable sign of authenticity when speaking of the Air Jordan 1 shoes, so that’s why we are starting this real vs fake AJ1 Pine Green with this step.

Before we proceed to explain the flaws on the fake Pine Green 1s, we are going to have a quick look at the AJ1 Pine Green fake vs real image in order to easily visualise the differences between the legit and the fake AJ1s.

real vs fake aj1 pine green

In the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green image above, we have pointed out four main flaws easily noticeable on the fake Pine Green 1s.

First of all, looking at the “SWOOSH ®” in the upper side of the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green’s interior tongue labels, you can see how the fake shoes have their text looking too thin.

On the other hand, the retail Pine Green AJ1s have their text looking more defined and thicker than the fake shoes’ text.

Then, looking at the “SWOOSH” on the line below the previous text, you can see how the fake shoes have their text looking thinner and wider than the text visible on the legit Pine Green 1 AJ1s.

The same text on the authentic Air Jordan 1s appears to be boxier and narrower than the text on the fake shoes.

Up next, looking at the “QUALITE” text, it is visible in the fake vs real Pine Green AJ1 image above how the fake shoes have their text looking thinner and taller (stretched out, to be precise) while compared to the retail AJ1’s text.

Lastly, looking at the second “SWOOSH ®” text on the shoes, the difference from the real vs fake AJ1 Pine Green pairs is that the fake pair has its text improperly font-weighted, as the letters are too thin, and also badly kerned.

The kerning (spacing) problem is caused by the letters being placed too close to each other on the fake shoes, while on the legit Pine Green 1s, the letters have the same distance between each letter.

Step 2: Real vs fake AJ1 Pine Green hourglass shape

As for the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green sneakers, we are going to check out the real vs fake Pine Green AJ1 pairs from the back, in order to visualise the shape of the shoes.

Before we proceed to the fake vs real Pine Green AJ1 comparison, we’d like to mention that the authentic shoes must look like an hourglass from the back, so as to be chunkier at the top and the bottom, and narrower in the middle side.

The shape of the shoes will not be easily visible while the shoes are on foot, as the shape of the shoes is covered by the shape of the foot. This being said, we recommend that you check your shoes for the hourglass shape when the shoes are not on foot.

Now, let’s have a look at the reference real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green image in order to visualise the differences between the two pairs.

It is visible how the authentic shoes look chunkier and curvier at the top and the bottom, and how in the middle, it is less curvy but actually looking narrower.

On the other hand, the fake shoes do look curvy as well, but not as pronounced as the retail Pine Green AJ1s.

The blatant flaw that’s commonly present on the fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green (and not only this colourway) is that they miss the hourglass shape, and they look more tubular.

In order to understand this the best, let’s have a look at another real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green comparison that’s also explained in a better way.

Once again, and as it is visible in the fake vs real AJ1 Pine Green image above, the authentic shoes have a curvier tone than the fake shoes.

The counterfeit Air Jordan 1 Pine Green sneakers have a straighter and a more tubular shape than the legit shoes’ shape.

Step 3: Inspect the Air Jordan logo’s lettering

Moving on to the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green sneakers, we are going to analyze the fake vs real Pine Green Air Jordan 1 shoes for the lettering on the classic Air Jordan logo.

In the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green image above, we have pointed out how the fakes hoes have their text looking noticeably thicker than it is supposed to be.

There’s no really need to explain this further, as the fake shoes have their “AIR JORDAN” text at a different font-weight than the one used to print the same text on the legit shoes.

Proceeding to the fourth step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green shoes, we are going to have a look at the wings, still on the Air Jordan logo.

As you may be used to already, we are first going to check out the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Pine Green image to understand this step easier.

A common flaw seen on the fake Air Jordan 1 pairs on the Air Jordan logo is that they have their wings improperly spaced between.

This being said, in the comparison with the real vs fake AJ1 Pine Green pairs above, you can see how the fake shoes have their wings improperly spaced as well, as they have too much space between the wings.

The authentic Air Jordan 1 Pine Greens always have the same amount of space between each wing, unless there is a factory flaw from Nike, which is very rare.

Step 5: Check the toe box of your Pine Green Air Jordan 1

As for the fifth step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green pairs, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Greens on the toe box.

The toe box’s perforations

Speaking of the toe box, we will first look at the perforation holes on the toe box, and then, we will check the inflation level (weight) of the toe box on both the fake vs real AJ1 Pine Green pairs.

In the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Pine Green image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their toe box’s perforations looking smaller and less wide than the authentic shoes’ perforation holes.

On the other hand, the authentic shoes have their perforations looking bigger and wider than the fake shoes’ holes.

Keep in mind that the fake shoes can also have their perforations looking too big and too wide since this is a flaw commonly seen on the fake shoes as well.

The toe box’s weight

Let’s also have a look at how the weight of the toe box should look on the authentic Pine Green AJ1s, and how it usually looks on the fake shoes as well.

Another blatant flaw on the fake shoes is that they often have their toe box over-inflated.

By saying “over-inflated”, we basically mean that the fake shoes have their toe box looking too thick, big and massive compared to the toe box on the legit shoes.

This can be visible if you flip your shoes to the side, from an angle as the one in the real vs fake AJ1 Pine Green image above.

Step 6: Fake vs real AJ1 Pine Green rear patch

For the sixth step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green sneakers, you’ll have to flip your shoes to the back again and check out the little boxy patch where the Nike Swoosh logos from the interior and exterior side of the shoes unite together.

In the fake vs real AJ1 Pine Green image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their patch looking too boxy, as it is too short in height, and too long in width.

On the other hand, the authentic Pine Green AJ1s have their patch looking longer in height and shorter in width.

Step 7: Examine the Nike Swoosh logo on the side of your Air Jordan 1 Pine Green

Moving on to the seventh step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green sneakers, we are going to have a look at the Nike Swoosh logos on both the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Pine Green pairs.

In the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Pine Green image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their Swoosh looking too curvy.

On the other hand, the authentic Air Jordan 1 Pine Green shoes have their Swoosh logo looking curvier than the fake shoes’ logo.

Step 8: Look at the cross-stitching on your shoes

As for the eighth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green sneakers, we’ll check out the fake vs real AJ1 Pine Green pairs for the cross-stitching.

The cross-stitching that we are talking about is the “L” looking stitching on the side of the shoes, which goes over the Nike Swoosh logo – that’s why we call it “cross-stitching”.

Now, as usual, let’s have a fast look at the reference fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Pine Green comparison picture.

pine green aj1 fake vs real

In the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Pine Green image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their cross-stitching placed too close to the Swoosh, as these two make contact.

The legit Pine Green AJ1 pair has its stitching placed further away from the Swoosh, and never making contact with Nike’s logo.
