How to spot fake Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low Black Phantom

You can easily tell if your Black Phantom 1s are fake by checking the interior tongue label. Fake pairs always have their text too thin and wavy.


1. Interior tongue label

The only two differences between the fake vs real Black Phantom Travis Scotts are that the fake pair has:

  • Thinner text — visible on the words “THE”, “SWOOSH”, and “CHINE”;
  • Wavier text — noticeable all over the label.

The authentic sneakers must have thicker, more solid text that is perfectly straight positioned on the label.


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

2. Size tag

  • The “UK” size text on the fake shoes appears to be too thin, while the real pair’s text is thicker.
    • This is the easiest noticeable if you look at the letter “U”.
  • In the “CN” inscription, which stands for the Chinese size of the shoes, the fake letters are too thin and too wide, while the real ones are exactly the opposite.
  • Lastly, the “UPC” text is too thin, and the real print is thicker.

3. Suede effect

Authentic pairs must have a suede material that leaves traces behind when touched.

  • Fake shoes tend to have a poorer material which doesn’t leave any trace behind.
  • The fake Travis Scott 1s have their fabric of a darker shade than the real one, which is lighter.
  • Above the midsole, the fake pair has lots of glue stains — they are not ever seen on the real Black Phantoms.

This way, it’s easier to make sure you get it right.

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.

4. Perforations

  • The fake pair’s holes are too small.
  • They are too narrow, and the real Black Phantoms have bigger, larger perforations.

Legit shoes have wider holes.

5. Rear logos

Flipping the shoes to their back, we now have to look at the AIR JORDAN logo and at the bee that is visible on the left and the right rear sides.

5.1. Left shoe (Bee logo)

First things first, let’s look at the left shoe – the one with the bee on the back.

  • The fake pair’s stitches are too thick, and how they’re also a bit shorter than the real ones.

The authentic pair has thinner, longer white threads than the ones seen on the fake Air Jordan 1s.

5.2. Right shoe (Air Jordan logo)

Let’s now move on to the right shoes and have a look at the AIR JORDAN logo on the rear patch.

  • The fake pair’s black lines within the basketball are thinner, and slimmer than the real ones.

The genuine Air Jordan 1s have their basketball lines thicker and wider.

Hence, they are more noticeable than the fake ones.

6. Toe box

  • The fake pair’s toe box is too low, and it tends to look flatter than the real one.

Speaking of which, the genuine Black Phanton 1s has its toe box looking thicker, bulkier, and generally higher than the fake pair’s.

7. Box reflections

You have to put the box under the light of a bulb or your phone’s flashlight.

Upon doing that, if you have a real box, you should notice the elements lighting up — just like in the image with the authentic box above.

  • The fake pair’s logos don’t light up.
  • Nor does the Cactus Jack text logo, the face, and the NIKE AIR logos shine on the fake box.

If the elements don’t light up, they will look just like the ones in the image with the fake box, where you can see how the elements don’t have the 3M reflective painting.

Shortlist: Legit check Black Phantoms in 30 seconds

  1. Look at the interior tongue label.
  2. Check the size tag inside your Air Jordan 1s.
  3. Verify the suede effect on your Black Phantoms.
  4. Analyze the toe box’s perforations.
  5. See what the rear stitches look like.
  6. Check the toe box’s inflation level.
  7. Remember to look at the box’s shining elements.
