Summarily: To tell the real vs fake, you need to look out for the “SWOOSH” text. There must be no inconsistency such as wavy characters or weird spaces between letters.

This guide is for the brown Travis Scotts — we’ll teach you how to spot any fake.

Here are other colorways you may look to legit check:

How to tell if Travis Scott Jordan 1 Low are fake

You can tell if Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low are fake if the label inside the tongue has crooked, wavy letters. Authentic pairs always have straight inscriptions, while fakes never do so.

1. Interior tongue label

  • The fake “SWOOSH” text is too bolded (thick) on the fake shoes.
  • The fake “SWOOSH” print doesn’t follow a particular alignment towards the x-axis (horizontal axis) thereby causing it to display as a wavy text.
  • Improper spacing can be seen between “SWOOSH” and “®”: The fake ® is closely jampacked with the SWOOSH text, leaving no spacing whatsoever.
  • The fake “®” character’s thickness begs for mercy, as it has been overly thickened.
  • The second “SWOOSH ®” (above “MADE IN CHINA”) has the same error: it is too thick.
  • As for the second “®”, the character is moved a step further to look more like a B instead of R.

Without gainsaying, this method is the most efficient one to tell fake vs real Travis Scott Low Top.

Finding it too hard? Have our experts legit check your Travis Scotts:

2. Suede effect

When drawing a line with your finger on the suede of an authentic pair, there should be traces and marks left where your finger has been.

Therefore, the material on the authentic sneakers is supposed to get darker where it was touched.

  • Even though the fake shoes have their suede effect nuanced, it is not nuanced enough.
  • The fake pair doesn’t have any dark traces of where the suede was touched.
  • Therefore, the fake pair has a lighter brown suede compared to the real one.

On the other hand, the authentic Travis Scott AJ1s have their suede effect concentrated, as it leaves darker traces and it shouts a more high-quality material than the one used to craft the fake shoes.

This can sometimes be too hard to spot.

3. Toe box

  • The fake toe box is bursting up into the body of the sneakers as seen in the fake photo.
    • An authentic toe box is just supposed to lace the sole round
  • The fake toe box is also too inflated, as it has a bigger look than a real toe box.

Notice how the authentic toe box has a smaller, less-inflated look than the fake.

4. Rear logos

On an authentic pair of Travis Scott Jordan 1 Low:

  • The left shoe has the Cactus Jack logo.
  • The right shoe has the Air Jordan logo.
  • The fake Cactus Jack face is too textured — there are too many red stitches.
  • The replica pair’s Cactus Jack face has thicker stitches than the real one.
  • The “R” in the word “AIR” is too skinny — the letter is too thin.
  • The “O” in the word “JORDAN” is too big on the fake pair.

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

5. Side logos

On this basis, our inspection would be drawn from the right and left pair of the shoe.

First of all, we will have a look at the best replicas on the market, and then we will analyze the sneakers with a cheaper pair of fake Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott Low low-top.

5.1. The left pair – best quality replica

This may be the best replica on the market, but that doesn’t mean that there are no flaws.

  • The fake top right line above the Cactus Jack text logo is placed a lot further from the line of stitching that’s crossing all over the sneakers.
  • The fake “K” is placed too high — it is to visible on the fake pair.
  • The “U” is too thin on the fake shoes.

On the legit pair, this line is placed a lot closer to this line, as it even touches the stitching line.

5.2. The right pair – best quality replica

Let’s move on to the right shoe and let’s inspect the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott low-top sneakers.

  • The fake red line that’s on the left side of the sneakers is placed too far away from the stitching that crosses the sneakers.
  • The fake line doesn’t touch this stitching line, just as it has to be on the legit Travis Scott Jordan 1 Low.
  • Furthermore, the letter “C” in the word “Cactus” is placed too close to the stitching line that crosses the sneakers on the fake shoes, and on the legit ones, it is placed a little lower than that.

5.3. The left pair – low quality replica:

  • The 3 lines drawn around the letter “C” are too close to the “C,” on the fake pair, more than on the original.
  • In furtherance to this, inspecting the stitches on the left pair around the Cactus Jack Side Logo, you would notice that on the fake shoe, the line around “C” from the right is too close to the stitches when compared to that on the original.

5.4. The right pair – low quality replica:

  • The line from the left of “C” from the picture, can be seen to have been drawn below the stitching on the authentic AJ1 TS, while on the fake Jordan 1 Low Travis Scott, the line is slightly above the stitching.
  • Checking the letter “A” too, the letter ‘A’ on the fake sneakers can be seen to have been placed too low, thereby making it fall below the Swoosh. Whereas, in the real shoe, the “A” is to be above the SWOOSH.
  • The same situation is for the letter “U” too. It is placed too low on the fake Jordan 1 Travis Scott Low when in an actual sense, it has to be seen a little bit because it has been merged with the SWOOSH.

Basically, that is all when comparing the real vs fake of the Travis Scott Low Top using the Cactus Jack Side Logos.

6. Reverse Swoosh

  • On the fake sneakers, the tip of the Swoosh is less arched.
  • Alongside this is a crooked Swoosh line, which can be seen on the left side of the Swoosh, just after its tip (you can see the emojis on the picture to get it even clearer).
  • The part that connects with the sole of the fake shoe is not curved enough. 

The real sneakers take a sharp curvature at this point, unlike the counterfeit which is less sharped – in a nutshell, the fake Travis Scott Top Low has a fatter curve on the bottom side of the Reverse Swoosh sign.

7. Size tag

  • On the Size tag, the “XC” text on the fake shoes is too thick.
    • This flaw is even more visible on the “C” character of the “XC” text.
  • The “XC” text is closer to the edge of the black bar placed just below the said text.

This flaw, unless talked about, is one that isn’t quick to notice. Remember, we said at the onset of this comparison of real vs fake Travis Scott Low Jordan 1s that we would be treating this topic of discourse in detail.

Interestingly, such size tag flaws apply to the Fragment Travis Scott Jordan 1 Low as well.

8. Insole

The insole, just like in the Cactus Jack Side Logos, the flaws can be seen on both the left and the right shoe.

8.1. Left shoe – Jumpman logo

On the left shoe is a Jumpman Logo. Inspecting this logo properly, you would notice that the fingers of the Jumpman on the counterfeit shoe are tiny, smaller than those of the real one.

  • The fake pair’s fingers are less visible to the sight you can’t see them correctly, even after straining your eye.
  • The fake Jumpman’s fingers are too thin.

8.2. Right shoe – Travis Scott logo

  • The text is thicker on the fakes.
  • Aside from that, there is a varying amount of spacing between the letters.

9. Sole

  • On the fake shoe, you would find out that the stars inscribed on the sole is extensively more detailed than that of the retail Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott Low-Top pair.
    • More noticeable on the stars found at the edge of the fake Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott pair.

10. Nike tongue label

  • The logo on the fake tag (check pictures for ease of reference) has a different pattern of stitching.
  • This, therefore, causes it to appear more noticeable than on that of the authentic pairs of the Travis Scott Air Jordan 1.

11. Cactus Jack tongue label

This label is located at the front of the shoe. Just beside the Nike Logo that was illustrated too in the last step.

  • The three lines drawn just above the letter “C” of the Cactus can be seen to be closer to the fake shoe than to the real.
  • The replica Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott Low pair has fewer stitches, which makes it look smaller.

12. Pink paper (inside the box)

The final flaw to be used for our fake vs real comparison is the packaging bag of the Travis Scott Low Top Sneakers.

  • The plastic bag that packages the fake shoe appears to be less shiny than the retail one.

Although, when inspected well, you would see for yourself the difference that was illustrated just before this paragraph, this method of comparison isn’t very effective.

All thanks to the flexible change the plastic bag can undergo without much ado. Also, this flaw isn’t too quick to notice, except for people with an owl eye.

Or perhaps, you have been on the lookout for it, having learned about it from us.

Shortlist: Legit Check Travis Scott 1 Low in 30 seconds

Albeit, find just below, the five easy steps to know the real vs fake Travis Scott Low Top in only 30 Seconds:

  1. Firstly, look out for inconsistencies on the bold tag. Say wavy SWOOSH texts and weird spaces between the SWOOSH text and the ® character.
  2. Check the quality of the suede material on the side of your shoes. Mostly, the suede effect is not visible on the fake shoes, as the fake shoes’ suede material mostly doesn’t get darker after rubbing it.
  3. Secondly, check the Toe Box; the fake would be more curved at the sole than that of the real, and also you would find the toe box more inflated relative to the degree of the authentic shoe.
  4. Further, Inspect the Cactus Jack & Air Jordan logos on the back heel; the stitching on this side of the fake shoe is denser than that of the authentic one.
    And also, the letter “R” in the word “AIR” is skinnier on the fake shoe than on the authentic one.
  5. Also, Inspect the Cactus Jack Side Logos; you would notice that the three lines drawn just above the letter “C” on the counterfeit, are closer than how it is on the authentic – that is on the left shoe.
    While on the right leg, alongside the flaws on the left shoe, you would also notice that the “C” of the CACTUS text on the authentic is found below the neighbouring stitching.
    While on the fake shoe, it is protruding slightly above the stitching.
  6. Finally, make sure you check the insole.
    You should do this in order to be sure about your claims; on the fake, the fingers of the Jumpman inscribed on the insole of the shoe are faintly visible, unlike in the original where you can see all of the fingers.
    Also, on the right shoe, the texts on the insole are bolder than usual.
