Expert Legit Check - Let our team look at your Jordans:
The authentic shoes must look like an hourglass from the rear side:
When you are holding the authentic Dark Mocha Air Jordan 1s from the rear side, you are going to see how they are curvy at the top and at the bottom, and how they are also narrowing into the middle of the shoes.
A correct shape means that the shoes are curvy and bumpy at the top and at the bottom and that they have a narrowing in the middle of the shoes, therefore looking like an hourglass.
The original Air Jordan 1 Dark Mocha pair has its shape correctly defined: curves a lot at the top and at the bottom, and becomes narrower in the middle.
We’re not going to deny that the fake shoes are curved, because they are indeed, but not enough. They’re not curved like the legit shoes’ shape, which is visibly clearly more accentuated.
Please keep in mind that the hourglass shape won’t be visible when the shoes are on foot! The shape can be visible when the shoes are not worn by somebody (only when they are off-foot).
The authentic Dark Mochas have their toe box looking thin and “deflated”, being thinner than the fake one.
On an authentic pair, when you draw a line with your finger on the suede part of the shoes, the previously touched area must darken and leave a trace.
In most cases, fake pairs don’t darken and leave traces due to the quality of the material. Even if they do, they are too “weak” as they don’t darken up as much as the legit pair.
The authentic Dark Mocha Air Jordan 1s have their suede moving more, as it looks blurry in the area that it wasn’t touched.
The real pair’s suede also looks darker and it shows traces in the areas where it was touched.
A quick mention:
If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.
The “TM” text on the authentic Air Jordan 1 Brown pair is thinner than the text on the fake pair.
What we still need to remind ourselves about the wings is that the authentic Dark Mocha 1s must have the same amount of space between each wing!
The legit pairs will always match each other when it comes to this detail, unlike the fake Jordan 1 Dark Mocha pairs.
On the other hand, the legitimate Air Jordan 1 Dark Mochas have their Nike Swoosh logo looking bigger, sharper and more defined than the fake pair’s logo.
On the other hand, the authentic Dark Mocha 1s have their perforations looking bigger, wider and basically larger than the fake pair’s perforations.
Talking about the real Jordan 1 Dark Mocha, you can see how they have their “AIR” text looking thinner and with less space between the letters, as they look airier and less crowded than the fake shoes’ text.
On the other hand, the patch found on the legitimate Air Jordan 1 Dark Mocha pair looks “taller” and less boxy than the fake pair’s patch.
On the other hand, the authentic shoes have their cross-stitching looking thicker than the fake pair’s stitching and are also placed a bit further away from the Nike Swoosh logo.
