To spot fake Jordan 1 Satin Black Toe, start by examining the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text.
Fake shoes typically show differences in text compared to original
Nike x Air Jordan sneakers. 1. Interior tongue
Authentic: All letters are consistently positioned and properly aligned. Text font-weight is accurate, resulting in clear and well-defined letters. Each piece of text, including “TRADEMARKS”, “SWOOSH ®”, “MARQUES”, “GARANTIE”, and “QUALITE”, is correctly printed and well-defined. Fake: Letters are inconsistently positioned, with some appearing wavy, slanted, or misaligned. Text font-weight is off, making the letters look too thin or too thick in various places. Letters in words like “QUALITE” are improperly filled or printed, resulting in a less clear and defined appearance. Overall, the text on the fake shoes lacks the clarity and precision found on authentic pairs. 2. Hourglass shape
Authentic pattern: The shoes have a distinctive hourglass shape.
Appearing curvier on the upper and bottom sides… While being narrower in the middle.
Authentic: Curvy appearance on the upper and bottom sides, with a narrow middle, creating a distinctive hourglass shape. Fake: May have some curvature but lack the pronounced hourglass shape of authentic pairs… With a silhouette significantly differing from that of legit shoes.
Closer look below:
Authentic: Exhibit a curved and narrow shape, evident from the drawn lines. Fake: Lack the significant curvature and narrowness seen in authentic pairs, appearing less “bumpy” or curved.
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.
Authentic: Text is properly weighted. Fake: Text appears too thick and deeply set compared to the authentic version. 4. Wings
Authentic: Wings are closely positioned with minimal distance between each. Fake: Wings are improperly placed with excessive distance between each. 5. Toe box
Authentic: Perforations on the toe box are narrow and small. Fake: Perforations are noticeably wider and bigger.
This flaw is commonly seen in fake pairs.
Authentic: Toe box is appropriately sized, not appearing too thick or massive. Fake: Toe box often looks over-inflated, noticeably thicker and more massive than the authentic pairs. 6. Swoosh
Authentic: Nike Swoosh logo has a distinctive and accurate curvature. Fake: Swoosh logo appears less curvy and its shape is not consistent with the authentic logo, especially at the top. 6.3. Placement
Authentic: Swoosh logo is placed lower on the side, closer to the midsole. It is positioned at an appropriate distance from the top of the shoes. Fake: Swoosh logo is positioned too high. Excessive space between the logo and the midsole. 7. Stitching
Authentic: Stitching is positioned further away from the Swoosh and does not make contact with Nike’s logo. Fake: Cross-stitching is placed too close to the Swoosh, making contact with the logo.
Short on time? Here’s a checklist
Below are the top 7 indicators to determine if your sneakers are genuine or fake:
Check the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text for properly positioned and font-weighted text. Analyze the rear of the AJ1 Satin Black Toe; genuine pairs exhibit an hourglass shape. Verify the lettering in the Air Jordan logo; fakes often have thin and wide letters. Inspect the placement of the wings in the Air Jordan logo; replicas tend to have wings too close together. Examine the toe box; counterfeit AJ1 Satin Black Toe sneakers may have wide perforation holes and an over-inflated appearance. Check the Nike Swoosh logo; fake shoes may have a less curvy Swoosh placed too high. Inspect the cross-stitching on the side; fake pairs commonly have stitching placed too close to the Nike Swoosh logo.” Expert Jordan 1 Satin Black Toe authentication
