The most relevant way to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Dior High shoes is to check the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text.
Fake Dior Jordan 1 pair never have their text on the tongue label correctly positioned and font-weighted, and therefore the quality of the fake shoes is not in tune with the quality visible on the authentic Dior AJ1.
In this fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Dior High guide, we are going to teach you how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Dior High sneakers in just a few simple steps to follow.
Since these sneakers were very limited, the replica sneakers will rise up on the market. Therefore, you may as well want to learn how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Dior High sneakers, and that’s why we are here.
We’ve also got a real vs fake guide for the Dior Jordan 1 Low!
Now that you know what we are going to talk about, let’s proceed to the ways to spot fake Dior Jordan 1s.
You can spot a fake pair of Dior 1s by checking the interior tongue label. Wavy and very thin inscriptions indicate a fake that doesn’t have the quality of a real pair.
An authentic Dior Air Jordan 1 pair is manufactured with precision to every little detail. You’ll never see the interior tongue label flawed on a genuine pair.
Now, let’s go to the step-by-step comparison.
As previously mentioned, we consider this as the most reliable sign of authenticity when speaking of the Air Jordan 1 Dior sneakers.
Before we begin to explain the flaws of the fake Air Jordan 1 Dior, we are going to have a quick look at the reference Dior Air Jordan 1 real vs fake image below.
In the image with the real vs fake Dior Jordan 1s above, we have pointed out a few flaws in the replica shoes.
First of all, the “SWOOSH” text in the top-right corner of the label:
Up next, looking at the “SWOOSH” text in the middle of the tongue label:
Back to the authentic Jordan 1 Dior High pair, you can see how its “®” character looks thicker and bigger than the one on the replica pair.
Moving lower on the label, we have the “VOTRE” text:
On the authentic pair, all of the letters in the “VOTRE” text have the same size. This goes out for the rest of the letters all over the real label as well.
Within the same line of text, we have the “QUALITE” inscription:
One line lower, we have the second “SWOOSH ®” print:
The authentic shoes have the same size for their letters.
The authentic pair shouldn’t have any kind of stitching at the bottom, besides the double-stitching above the “MADE IN ITALY” text.
The three thick threads on the fake pair marked with “???” in the image above shouldn’t be there.
Finding it too hard? Reach out to our Air Dior experts:
Here’s a comparison with one of the first batches of fake Dior 1s vs a real pair.
The letters on the authentic Dior Air Jordan 1s’ interior tongue label are supposed to have the same font weight and size.
Similar issues on the interior tongue labels occur on the fake Travis Scott Jordan 1s as well. A pair that’s just as popular as the Dior 1s, having similar issues for replicas.
The first part of this label tells you the serial number of your shoes.
The “8500” part tells you that there were manufactured only 8500 examples of the Dior 1s. The first part of the code also tells you which pair you have out of the 8,500 manufactured Dior Jordan 1s.
In the real vs fake Dior Air Jordan 1 image above:
On the other hand, you will never see the legit shoes having different fonts used for the “8500” text, as they always have the same font for the number.
Below is a list with all of the replicated Dior Air Jordan 1s which borrowed the ID individual codes from the authentic pairs.
If you see a pair with one of the following codes, that doesn’t mean that you are looking at a fake pair. Though, you should pay even more attention to details on these specific pairs, as the risk of it being fake is higher!
Serial numbers spotted on fake Dior Jordan 1 High:
The footbed is part of the shoes between the sole and the insole. To get there, you have to remove the insole of your Dior 1s.
On the other hand, the authentic Dior Air Jordan 1s have their footbed’s stitching looking thinner and less dense than the fake shoes’ stitching.
Authentic Dior Jordan 1s must look like an hourglass: they have to be curvy on the upper and lower sides of the shoes, and in the middle, they are supposed to have a narrowing.
Fake shoes commonly miss the hourglass shape, as they often look too straight, just like a tube.
The legit Dior Air Jordan 1 sneaker must curve on the interior side, unlike the other Air Jodan 1 colourway and collaborations, which curve on the exterior.
Even though the authentic Dior 1s curve on the interior side, they are curvier than how the fake shoes are.
Please keep in mind that the hourglass shape of the shoes will not be visible when the shoes are on foot.
Therefore, when the Air Diors are worn, we do not consider the hourglass shape as a good sign of authenticity. When they are not on foot, the hourglass shape is again a reliable sign of authenticity.
With this being said for the hourglass shape, let’s move on to the fifth way on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Dior High sneakers.
A quick mention:
If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.
Main flaws on the fake Dior 1s, before going into detail:
The amount of kerning on the authentic Air Jordan 1 Dior sneakers is the same between each letter, unlike the fake shoes which have different amounts of space between the letters.
Moving on to the letters in the “DIOR” text, there are several differences here as well.
Recap: Fakes commonly have their letters too thin and with too much space in between.
In the Dior Air Jordan 1 real vs fake image above:
Real pairs have more space between the wings.
On the other hand, the original Dior Air Jordan 1s have their perforation holes on the toe box looking smaller and narrower, being less wide than the holes on the fake Dior Air Jordan 1s.
The authentic Air Jordan 1 Dior sneakers must have their toe box looking “deflated”, so as to look thin and not chunky.
If you have to deal with a pair of Air Jordan 1 Dior with an over-inflated toe box, then you are surely looking at a replica Air Jordan 1 Dior pair of sneakers.
As for the ninth way of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Dior sneakers, we are moving more to the back of the profile side of the shoes, and we will have to check out the Nike Swoosh logo.
On the other hand, the legit Air Jordan 1 Dior sneakers have their “Dior” monogram printed on the logo looking more defined, with a thicker look than the Swoosh visible on the fake shoes.
Now that you know how to legit check Dior Air Jordan 1s by looking at the Nike Swoosh logo’s “Dior” monogram, let’s move on to the size of the logos on the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Dior pairs as well.
We drew a green line from the bottom of the Swoosh on the legit shoes to the midsole and a red line for the fake shoes. This makes it easier to notice the placement of the fake logo.
On the other hand, since the green line on the authentic Air Jordan 1 Dior sneakers is longer, that means that the logo on the authentic shoes is shorter, as it has more distance from the bottom of it and to the midsole.
The authentic pair’s logo looks like it comes out of the shoes, unlike on the fake pair.
In the real vs fake Dior Air Jordan 1 image below, we have once again drawn a green line for the legit shoes, and a red line for the fake ones.
The authentic shoes have their Nike Swoosh logo placed closer to the lacing area of the shoes.
On the other hand, the authentic Air Jordan 1 Dior pair has its patch taller, less narrow, and less wide on the sides.
As you can see, the authentic shoes have a lighter tone of blue. The authentic pair should have an icy blue shade.
Let’s have a look at two other versions fake soles with the help of the image below:
The genuine shoes’ dust bag presents its “AIR DIOR” text at the same thickness — lower than the fake pair’s thickness.
On the other hand, the authentic shoes’ Jumpman metal logo reflects light as it should: it looks a bit shiny where light lands on top of it, and in the other areas, it looks like a mirror, with a grey metal look.
Since the low-top Dior Jordan 1s come with this accessory as well, you’ll commonly see this flaw on them as well!
On the other hand, the genuine shoes’ AIR DIOR logo reflects light as it should, as it keeps its grey metal look.
Mentioning the authentic box, you can see in the fake vs real Dior 1 High image above how the legit special box has its “AIR DIOR” text looking a bit thicker than the one on the fake box.
The 15 detailed steps outlined above might not be so practical when you are in a hurry or when you want to buy sneakers online.
