How to spot fake Travis Scott Fragment Air Jordan 1 High

Step 1: Real vs fake AJ1 Travis Scott Fragment interior tongue label

The first step of the guide on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott x Fragment sneakers is focusing on the very best way to authenticate these shoes.

We’re saying that because the text on the interior side of the tongue’s label has to be flawless and perfectly printed on the patch.

First things first, let’s have a look at the fake vs real Travis Scott Fragment 1 High comparison image below, and after that, we’ll explain everything that happens in this image.

AJ1 fragment real vs fake travis scott

This may seem a bit complicated at first sight, but don’t worry, it’s actually super easy.

There are two main flaws seen on multiple areas of the fake item’s tongue label: the font-weight and the placement of the text (waviness).

1 – Beginning with the thickness, you can see how the fake pair’s inscriptions are too thick, and thus, how close the letters and the symbols are placed to each other.

The palcement flaw is caused by the thickness, and since the fake item’s letters and characters are too thick, their kerning is automatically too small.

2 – Then, l at any of the hand-emoji pointers in this image with the real vs fake AJ1 TS Fragment pairs above, you can notice how the fake pair’s text is wavy.

What do we mean by the text being wavy? Well, the problem is that, on the fake pair, some of the letters are placed lower than the other, and some are bigger and placed higher than the other.

This flaw can be the most noticaeble if you look at the “TRADEMARK” and at the “NIKE.LE” inscriptions – there you can see how the fake pair has some letters bigger than the others.

On the other hand, all of the words on the real Travis Scott x Fragment 1s High are perfectly placed, since they don’t have any of the waveness seen on the fake label.

Step 2: Travis Scott Fragment Air Jordan 1 High fake vs real size tag comparsion

Moving forward to the second method of the guide on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott x Fragment, we are going to go to the lower side of the shoes, still on the inside.

On the panels inside the shoes, you are going to see the size tags. Their name is pretty self-explanatory: these are litlte tabs which offer information about your pair’s size.

We’d like to add that the size tag is yet another one of the most reliable ways to spot fake AJ1 Cactus Jack Fragment, hence why we’ve ranked this the second tell.

This fake vs real Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott x Fragment comparison image above shows you how the fake 1s have four flaws

1. The style-code’s print: DH3227-105

The first flaw on the fake shoes is on the text which stands for the style-code of the shoes: “DH3227-105“.

Looking at the fake Fragment x Cactus Jack AJ1s, you can see how their style-code inscription looks too thin and how the letters, the dash (“-“) and the numbers are too narrow.

As for the real Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Highs, you can see how the “DH3227-105” print is thicker and bulkier than the fake pair’s inscription.

2. The UPC code’s text

Up next, the “UPC” text is the second inscription which is flawed on the fake Air Jordan 1 TS Fragment pair’s size tag.

Looking at both the “UPC” inscription, you can see hwo the fake pair has these three letters looking too thick, and how the rela ones are thinner.

As for the numbers next to the “UPC” text, you can also see how the fake pair’s numbers are too thick, and how the ones on the real size tag are thinner.

3. The country of manufacturing’s text

All of the authentic Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Retro High pairs were manufactured in China.

This fact is proven when you look at the bottom elft corner of the size tag, where you can see the “MADE IN CHINA” text spelt in more than just one language.

Looking at the fake pair’s “MADE IN CHINA” block of text, you can notice how these words look too thin and too small.

If you look at the real pair’s “MADE IN CHINA” block of text, you will see how all of the “MADE IN CHINA” prints look thicker and bigger than the replica ones.

4. The “EUR” inscription

These three letters stand for the size of the shoes expressed in the European sizes.

The fake pair has its “EUR” text looking way too thin, while the real Travis Scott x Fragment 1s have this text thicker and defined better than the fake text.

Step 3: Check the stitching on the footbed of the Travis Scott Fragment AJ1s

For the third way on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott x Fragment sneakers, we are going to talk about the footbed of these shoes.

To make this clearer, the footbed is this “messier” area that’s below the insoles. In order to get there, you will have to remove the insoles of your Travis Scott x Fragment 1s.

This authentic vs fake Air Jordan 1 High Travis Scott Fragment image above shows you how the fake pair has its stitching on the footbed improeprly detailed when it comes to the density and to the legnth of the threads.

First of all, the fake pair has too much stitching density. Meaning? The fake pair has too many threads that are placed too close to each other.

If you look at the real pair’s footbed, you can notice how there are less stitches and how they have more empty space in-between, unlike the crowded area on the fake shoes.

At the same time, the fake Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott x Fragment’s stitching on the footbed is too long and too thin, as the threads are too long and narrow.

The genuine Travis Scott AJ1 High Fragment sneakers have their threads shorter and boxier, as they are thicker than the fake footbed’s stitches.

Step 4: Inspect the text printed on the midsole’s interior profile side of your Air Jordan 1s

Proceeding to the fourth way on how to tell fake Air Jrodan 1 x Travis Scott x Fragment sneakers, we now have to talk a bit about the line of text which is printed on the midsole on the interior profile side of each shoe.

This fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Retro High Travis Scott Fragment image above shows you how the fake pair has is text too thin.

The flaw can be the most notcieable if you look at the “642-TRAVIS-HIROSHI” text and at the “OS283F-8-99” text, where the charcaters are too narrow on the fake pair.

Looking at the legit Travis Scott Fragment Air Jordan 1 Highs, you can notcie how they have the text on the midsole thicker.

Important notice: all of the charcaters on the midsole’s text of an authentic Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 High pair must have the same thickness.

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.

(By the way, have you seen our Price Comparison App? No need to compare sellers for the best price — we’ve done that for you.)

Step 5: Check the perforations on the toe boxes of your Air Jordan 1 High x Travis Scott x Fragment

For the fifth method on how to spot replica Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 High Fragment pairs, we have to go to a top-down view angle of the shoes.

We’re doing this because we want to see the look of the holes on the blue leather panel of the toe boxes on the real vs fake AJ1 Cactus Jack Fragment.

The main falw on the fake pair’s holes is that they are too tiny and too narrow.

In fact, you can see how al of the holes on the fake shoes are too small and how they cover too little of the blue leather on the toe box.

The real Travis Scott x Fragment 1s have their holes larger, sicne they cover more surface of the blue leather on the toe box.

ALl of the real pairs should have their holes large, but keep in mind that if they are larger than the authentic ones highlighted above, then you’re most likely looking at a fake pair.

Step 6: Brief the inflation level of the toe box on your Fragment x Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 High

The sixth way on how ot tell fake Air Jordan 1 High Travis Scott Fragment shoes will move us to the profile sides of the shoes.

For your refernece, the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 TS Fragment image below compares the shoes from their exteiror profile side, with the reverse Nike Swoosh logo.

The fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott Fragment image above points out how the fake pair’s toe box is too little curvy.

That implies that the fake toe box’s front tip is too close to the ground.

The genuine Travis Scott x Fragment High 1s have their toe box looking curvier – this fact is indeed proven if you look at how the real toe box is further away from the ground than the fake one.

Step 7: Examine the Cactus Jack and the Fragment logos on the rear side of your Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Highs

Going to the seventh way on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott x Fragment sneakers, we need to go to the rear side, where we have to look at the two famous logos: the Cactus Jack face logo and the Fragment Design thunder logos.

This replica vs authentic Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 High image above points out how the fake pair’s logo is improperly stamped into the leather.

By that, we mean that the fake Fragment TS1s have their logo fit too little deep into the leather, while the real pair’s logo is stamped deeper into the leather.

At the same time, you can notice how the fake pair’s Fragment Design logo is too thin – this applies to both the circle and to the two thunders.

Looking at the genuine Travis Scott Fragment Air Jordan 1s, you can see how the circle and the thunders are thicker and way wider than the fake ones.

Little details like these matter when it comes to the quality and the manufacturing between the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott Fragment High sneakers.

Step 8: Inspect the Air Jordan logo on the profile side of your Travis Scott x Fragment AJ1 High

Now that we’ve reached the eighth method on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 High sneakers, we have to talk about the “AIR JORDAN” logo which is seen on almost any AJ1 High pair.

As always, let’s have a look at the authentic vs counterfeit Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott image below.

You can notice how the fake pair’s “AIR JORDAN” text is improeprly font-weighted when you look at pretty much any letter in this logo.

The fake pair has its “AIR JORDAN” text looking too thick and with its letters too wide, while the real Travis Scott 1s have their same text thinner nad with the letters being thinner.

Step 9: Fake vs real Air Jordan 1 High Fragment x Travis Scott logo wings

Since we’ve already been talking about the Air Jordan logo’s text, let’s also pay a visit to the wings within the same classic Air Jrodan logo.

This fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott Fragment comparison image above shows you how the fake pair’s wings are placed too close to each other, as there’s too little empty space between those.

Looking at the real pair’s wings, it is visible how the wings are placed further away from each other, since there’s less space in-between the real wings than on the fake ones.

Step 10: Have a look at the Nike Swoosh logo and at the corner-stitching on the profile side of the AJ1s

The tenth method on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott x Fragment sneakers will have looking at the exterior profile sides for the notorious reverse Nike Swoosh logo seen on any of Travis Scott’s AJ1s.

Precisely, what we need to care aboure is the stitchign which makes a corner right next to the reverse Nike Swoosh logo.

The real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott Fragment image above shows you two flaws:

  1. The placement of the corner-stitching
  2. The thickness of the corner-stitching

1 – First of all, the fake pair has its corner-stitching placed too far away from the reverse Nike Swoosh logo, as there is too much empty space in-between the stitching and the reverse Swoosh.

Looking at the authentic pair’s stitching, you can observe how it is placed as close to the reverse Swoosh as it makes contact with the logo, unlike the fake pair which has empty space between the stitching and the logo.

2 – The stitching on the fake shoes is also improperly weighted, as it is too thick. This flaw can be seen on pretty much every thread on the fake shoes.

The real Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1s have their threads on the corner-stitching looking thinenr and slimmer than the fake stitches.

Step 11: Have a look at the stitching on the midsoles of your Travis Scott Fragment Air Jordan 1s

Let’s go to the eleventh step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott x Fragment sneakers, where we need to talk about the stitching on the midsoles.

The midsole’ stitching connects the soles to the upper of the Trais Scott x Fragment 1s.

The real vs fake Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott x Fragment image above shows you how the fake shoes have their stitches too thin and too long.

Looking at the real pair’s stitching, you can see how the threads look thicker and shorter htan the fake pair’s stitching.

Basically, the real pair’s stitching on the midsole looks boxier than the fake pair’s.

Step 12: Authentic vs fake Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott Fragment High exterior tongue badge

The twelfth step of the guide on how to spot fake Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 High sneakers forwards us to the upper side of the shoes, where we need to talk about the exteiror side of the tongue’s badge.

The exteiror of the tongue is pretty basic, as it is the same as the other Air Jordan 1s’ labels: there’s the NIKE AIR text with the Nike Swoosh logo and the two registered trademark symbols.

Looking at the fkae pair’s registered trademark “®” symbols, you can notice how the two of these look too thick and too big on the fake shoes.

On the other hand, the real Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1s have their registered trademark “®” symbols looking thinner and smaller than the fake ones.

Step 13: Check the insole’s inscriptions on your Travis Scott x Fragment AJ1 High

Let’s jump right back inside the real vs fake Fragment Design x Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 High shoes, because now we have to focus on the insole’s text.

Yet again, we encounter the classic insole style seen on almst every other Air Jordan 1s – the inscriptions are the same as on the exterior of the tongue’s label that we’ve previously checked.

The fake vs authentic Cactus Jack Fragment Air Jordan 1 High image above shows you how the fake pair has its registered trademark “®” symbol improperly defined.

In fact, the fake pair’s letter “R” is too big inside that circle, and the overall look of the circle is too big and too thin.

The real insole has the same “®” symbol with its letter “R”looking smaller, and the real pair’s circle looks smalelr and thicker than the fake one.

Step 14: Authenticate the look of the patch on the back of your Travis Scott x Fragment 1s

Moving to the fourteenth method on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott sneakers, we are going to talk about the patch on the back of the shoes.

More prcise, the patch that we need to talk about is the one where the Nike Swoosh logo from the interior profile side of the shoes reaches its end.

In the image with the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 High x Fragment x Travis Scott shoes above you can see how the fake pair has its patch too tall.

Looking at the real pair’s patch, you can observe how it looks boxier and less tall when compared to the fake one.

Step 15: Have a look at the text written on the packaging box’s label of your Travis Scott 1s

For the fiteenth method of the guide on how to tell fake Fragment Air Jordan 1 High x Travis Scott, we are now going to talk about the box’s label.

If you look on the side of your shoes, you are going to see this label that informs you what’s inside this nice shoebox.

In the image with the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott x Fragment sneakers above, you can see how the fke pair’s “AIR JORDAN 1 HIGH” text looks too wide, and how the real pir’s text is narrower.

Looking at the “USA” text, you can see how the fake pair’s inscription is too thin, and how the real one has this text thicker.

Step 16: Make sure that your Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1s have the right shade of blue for their leather

Proceeding to the sixteenth and the last method of the guide on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott sneakers, we are gong to talk about the shade used to colour the leather on these blue Air Jordan 1s.

We’ve ranked this the last step because this may differ when you try to compare your pair to this guide, and light discrepancies can affect this step which at the end of the day, it isn’t as reliable as the rest of the authenticity factors that we previously spoke about.

In the image with the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott x Fragment High sneakers above, you can notice how the fake pair has a paler shade of blue than the real ones.

Looking at the real shoes, it is notcieable how the blue leather looks darker than the fake one which is too light.
