Let’s begin the legit check guide.

How to tell fake Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere

To easily spot fake A Ma Maniere Air Jordan 1s, check the size tag inside each shoe. The fake pairs always have multiple font weights for their text, while the authentic pairs always look 100% the same. The fake A Ma Maniere Jordan 1s never look the same as the original pairs when it comes to the size tags.

Step 1: Size tag – real vs fake Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere

We always suggest starting with the size tags when it comes down to legit checking the Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere. With this being said, let’s start the comparison.

Mainly, there are three flaws that occur on all of the best Air Jordan 1 Ma Maniere replicas’ size tags.

1. The style-code: DO7907-100

Starting from the top, there we have the text with the style-code of the A Ma Maniere 1s: DO7097-100.

Speaking of which, you can see how the “DO7097-100” pair’s text looks too thin. The same inscription looks thicker and more solid on the real pair.

2. The UPC number

Moving on, the UPC code is unique for each authentic pair of 1s. Though, all of the A Ma Maniere 1s will start this like with “UPC 00195” – the rest will most likely be different on each pair.

Now, the fake pair’s “UPC” text looks too thick – this can be the easiest visible if you look at the letters “P” and “C”.

On the other hand, the real pair’s “UPC” text looks thinner. Moreover, all of the letters have the same font-weight, unlike the fake pair’s text

3. The country of manufacturing’s print

The last flaw on the size tag is tied to the bottom-left corner of the size tag, and there we can find the “MADE IN CHINA” text, spelt in multiple languages.

The replica A Ma Maniere 1s have their “MADE IN CHINA” prints at a lower font-weight than the real pair’s text.

Meaning? The fake pair has its text way thinner than the text on the real shoes.

Step 2: Hourglass shape – fake vs real Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere

Let’s go to the rear side of the shoes and check out the shape of the shoes. We’ve said this multiple times before, and this applies to the authentic A Ma Maniere 1s as well:

The back shape of the A Ma Maniere Air Jordan 1s must be like an hourglass: the shoes have to be curvy at the top and at the bottom, and in the middle, they must have a narrowing: ⌛

Can you see the difference in this image? Basically, the real shoes have a large cup at the top and at the bottom, and in the very middle of the shoes (where the brown, square patch is), the shoes are narrower.

If that wasn’t the clearer explanation, don’t worry, we totally understand it. In fact, that’s why we’ve prepared this image which is explained way better than the one above.

So, looking at this fake vs real A Ma Maniere 1 comparison image, you can see how the green lines representing the real shoes are very curvy, while the fake pair’s lines are straightened and less bumpy than they should be.

Step 3: Insole badge – legit checking the Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere

Moving on to the third way on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maneire pairs, we’re going to jump back inside the shoes and have a look at the badge stitched into the insoles.

As you may know, the A Ma Maniere 1s have a special insole, rather than the classic “Nike AIR” insole on the normal colourway of the 1s. That’s one of the aspects making the A Ma Maniere 1s so special!

While it may be so special, let’s find out if we’re looking at a fake or real A Ma Maniere Jordan 1 insole!

“So then, what’s exactly happening in this image?” – well, there are two flaws: on the text and on the stitching.

First of all, the “AIR JORDAN TM” text on the fake A Ma Maniere 1s looks too thick, as there are too many white stitches attached to the black label.

Looking at the real Air Jordan 1s, you can see how the “AIR JORDAN TM” text looks thinner since there are way fewer stitches compared to the real shoes’ insole.

Then, looking at the black zig-zag stitches that are attached all over the insole’s badge, you can observe how the fake pair’s stitches are too thin, while the real pair’s badge has thicker stitches all around the label.

Step 4: Logo Text – Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere Fake Guide

For the fourth way on how to tell fake AIr Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere sneakers, we’re going to have a look at the Air Jordan logo.

Looking at the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere image above, you can see how the fake shoes have their “AIR JORDAN” inscription looking too thick.

On the other hand, the real shoes have their “AIR JORDAN” text looking thinner than the fake pair’s text.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways to authenticate this item.

The next few steps are still reliable signs of authenticity but are for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the steps we’ve explained above to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

Step 5: Toe box holes – legit checking the Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere

Proceeding to the fifth way on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere sneakers, we’re going to talk about the holes on the toe boxes of these shoes.

First things first, let’s take a quick look at the real vs fake A Ma Maniere 1 image below.

As you can see, the fake shoes have their holes in the toe box looking too wide – that’s due to the fact that they’re fit too deep into the shoes.

On the other hand, the genuine Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maneires have their perforations in the toe box looking narrower and generally thinner than the fake pair’s holes.

Step 6: Interior flap text – Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere genuine vs replica

As for the sixth way on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere sneakers, we’re going to talk about the text within the flaps on the side of the shoes.

Basically, this is the text that hides on the interior side of the Air Jordan 1 logo.

Looking at the fake shoes, you can observe how the fake pair’s text looks way thicker than the genuine pair’s text.

Regardless of what it says inside the flap, you can see how the genuine pair’s text is thinner than the fake pair’s text.

Step 7: Toe box inflation level – real vs fake AJ1 A Ma Maniere

For the seventh method on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 A Ma Manieres, we’re going to look at the toe boxes and talk about how they should be on the real pairs.

Looking at these fake vs real Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere sneakers above, you can see how the fake pair’s toe box is too flat.

On the other hand, the toe box of the genuine Air Jordan 1 A Ma Manieres have their toe box looking thicker and genuinely bulkier than the fake pair’s toe box.

Step 8: Swoosh – how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 A Ma Maniere

More to the back of the shoes, the A Ma Maniere 1s have the classic Nike Swoosh logo. Let’s check the difference between the real vs fake Swooshes!

In the image with the fake vs real Air Jordan 1s above, we’ve highlighted how the fake pair has Swoosh improperly glued to the leather. More precisely, the Swoosh comes out of the fake shoes.

The real A Ma Maniere 1s have their Swoosh properly attached to the leather, as it’s fully glued, and it doesn’t come out, unlike the fake pair’s logo.

Step 9: Exteiror tongue – AJ1 A Ma Maniere authentic vs fake

Going to the upper of the shoes, we now have to deal with the badge on the exterior side of the tongue.

Looking at the fake shoes, you can see how the replica A Ma Maniere 1s have their “A Ma Maniere” inscription looking too thick, while the real shoes have a thinner text.

Within the same label, you can also notice how the white stitching is too thin and how the threads are too long on the fake shoes, while the real label’s stitching is thicker and smaller, therefore boxier.

Step 10: Rear Swoosh patch – AJ1 A Ma Maniere legit check tutorial

Lastly, for the tenth way on how to tell fake AJ1 A Ma Manire sneakers, we’re going to talk about the patch on the rear side of the shoes, where the Nike Swoosh logos meet.

Looking at the fake pair’s patch, you can see how it looks too tall. On the other hand, the same patch is shorter on the real shoes.
