To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Fragment x Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low sneakers is checking the size tag inside each shoe, as well as the tongue’s label. You’ll always see the fake pairs with their text on the size tag at the wrong thickness and the tongue’s label’s text being too wavy and badly font-weighted as well. The real pairs are always flawless.

We all know the Nike x Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low collaboration, but in 2021, the team reunited once again to drop a nice pair of low 1s.

Though this time there’s another collaborator, and it is the famous Fragment Design brand, creating an awesome blue sneaker with Travis Scott’s Air Jodan 1 Low.

Fragment x Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 1 Low sneakers are very limited and really rare, and as cool as they are, we have to admit that there are lots of fakes out there.

It is generally good to know whether you are looking at a real or fake Travis Scott Fragment AJ1 Low, especially when you want to buy one of those.

We are here to teach you everything you need to know when it comes to authenticating Cactus Jack x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low sneakers.

How to spot fake Fragment x Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low

Step 1: Check the size tag inside your Air Jordan 1 TS Fragment Low

Let’s begin the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Low Cactus Jack Fragment sneakers with the size tag because as we’ve said before, we like to believe that this is the best way to authenticate these shoes.

With this being said, let’s jump right inside the real vs fake AJ1 Travis Scott Fragment sneakers, and let’s have a look at the comparison image below.

The image with the fake vs real Fragment Cactus Jack AJ1 Low sneakers above shows you four flaws – let’s take each one of those individually, in the same order in which they’re being counted.

1. The “DM7866-140” style-code

The first flawed text on the fake Travis Scott Fragment 1 Lows is the one that tells us the unique style-code of these sneakers: “DM7866-140“.

Looking at the fake pair’s text, you can notice how it has its numbers, letters and the dash (“-“) looking too thick and too bulky.

As for the real Cactus Jack x Fragment AJ1 Lows, you can see how their style-code is thinner and how the characters are narrower than the fake ones.

2. The UPC code’s text

Skipping one line of text from the style-code, we now have to deal with the “UPC” text and with the numbers next to these three letters.

The UPC code is something with more of an internal meaning that Nike cares about more than what we do. The UPC code is also unique for each legitimate pair of Fragment x TS Air Jordan 1s.

The fake pair has both its “UPC” inscription and the numbers nearby looking too bulky and thick, and since these are too thick, they are also placed too close to each other.

Talking about the real Fragment Air Jordan 1 Lows, you can see how their “UPC” text/numbers look thinner and how they have more space in-between each character when put side-by-side with the replica text.

3. The last line of text on the label

The last line on the size tag redirects you to Nike’s website, but this page should not really raise any interest. We need to check the inscriptions rather than where the website leads.

On the fake shoes, the text with the website is too thin and it has too few letters filled with a lot of paint.

On the other hand, the real Fragment x Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Lows have their Nike website text looking thicker and with way more letters filled with paint than the fake ones.

Basically, the real pair’s text has to be filled with as much paint as it can be barely legible. Weird or not, we don’t really know why the text is like that, but it just has to be that way.

4. The “MADE IN CHINA” text

Well, this text is pretty self-explanatory – it tells us that the shoes were manufactured in China, and the text is spelt in multiple languages.

Looking at the counterfeit Travis Scott Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low pair, you can see how the “MADE IN CHINA” phrases look too thin and how the letters are a bit too tall and big.

On the other hand, the genuine Travis Scott Fragment 1 Lows have the same block of text saying “MADE IN CHINA” with its characters looking thicker and shorter/boxier than the fake ones.

Step 2: Inspect the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text on your AJ1 Low Cactus Jack x Fragment

Proceeding to the second-best way on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 Low x Fragment x Travis Scott sneakers, let’s have a look at the shoes for their interior tongue labels.

In the very first paragraph of this article, you can see how we’ve mentioned that this label can also easily tell you the authenticity of a Fragment TS1 Low pair of sneakers.

That is because the real pairs must have their label really precise and without any imperfections that are seen on every fake pair.

real vs fake fragment travis scott jordan low

This image with the fake vs real Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 x Fragment comparison image above portrays how the fake pair has its text badly detailed, and how the real one is flawless.

1 – First of all, the “TM” text on the classic Air Jordan logo looks too thick and too tall on the fake shoes, whereas the real pair has this text thinner and less stretched.

In fact, the authentic pair’s “TM” inscription looks narrower and it is boxier than the fake pair’s word.

2 – Up next, the “NIKE” text and the rest of the line of text on the fake shoes are too thick, and the letters are too wavy.

Meaning? The fake pair has its letters too bulky and the words are placed at different levels, therefore making these look like waves on a larger scale of viewing the text.

Looking at the real pair’s text, you can observe how the characters are thinner and how they are all placed at the very same level, without being wavy.

3 – The third flawed inscription on the fake label is the “SWOOSH®” text.

The fake pair has its letters looking way too thick, and moreover, the letters are placed too close to each other, leaving too little empty space in-between each other.

On the other hand, the real pair of Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Lows have their “SWOOSH®” inscription’s characters looking thinner and with a larger kerning, therefore the characters looking more aired than the fake ones.

Step 3: Look at the text written on the midsole on the interior profile side of your Fragment x Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low

Moving forward to the third step of the Travis Scott x Fragment AJ1 Low authenticity check process, we need to talk about the midsole’s text.

As you may know, these sneakers have an inscription that is quite long. Most of the fake pairs don’t have their midsole’s text properly font-weighted and spelt.

aj1 ts cj real vs fake fragment low

Looking at the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Low x Travis Scott x Fragment image above, you can see how the fake pair has its text looking too thin.

This flaw can be the most noticeable on the fake AJ1 Lows if you look at the “TRAVIS-HIROSHI” and at the “F-8-99” text.

On the other hand, you can see how all of the inscriptions on the real Low Air Jordan 1 x Travis Scott x Fragment shoes have their text thicker and bulkier than the fake one.

how to tell fake jordan 1 low fragment travis scott

Here’s a key tip when you want to spot fake Low Air Jordan 1 x TS x Fragment:

The text on the midsole should say “FA-21-MNJDLS-358-TRAVIS-HIROSHI/TOOLINGCODE: OS283 F-8-99“.

Looking at the image above, do you see any difference between the real vs fake AJ1 Low Fragment TS pairs’ inscriptions?

Well, the hand-emoji pointer may make it easier to see it: the fake pair spells “642” instead of the real pair’s text which says “358”.

This flaw is caused due to the little attention paid to detail by the replica manfuacturers, and that is because:

  1. The real High Top pairs should say “642”
  2. The real Low Top pairs should say “358”

With this being said, in order for a Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low pair to be authentic, you should see it saying “358” on the midsole’s text, and never “642” – that’s the High Top pair’s number.

Step 4: Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low real vs fake rear side’s details

Going to the fourth method of the guide on how to tell fake Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low x Fragment, let’s have a look at the details on the back of the shoes.

As you may know, the left and the right shoes are different, and in order to keep this comparison tidy, we are going to start with the real vs fake AJ1 TS Fragment shoes on the left pair, and then we’re going to look at the right pair.

1. Cactus Jack logo comparison – the left shoe

The left shoes present Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack logo, as well as the Fragment Design logo below, and for the first comparison, we are going to look at the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Low pairs on this side.

fragmetn jordan travis scott real vs fake

Let’s start with the beginning: the Cactus Jack text logo.

Looking at the replica Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Lows, you can see how the three lines at the top of the logo look too thick and how they’re too big.

On the other hand, the same three lines on the real shoes are thinner and they are smaller than the fake ones.

Up next, the fake pair has its Cactus Jack face logo looking too massive as it was fit stamped too deep into the blue leather.

The authentic Travis Scott x Fragment AJ1 Low has its face logo fit less deep into the bleu leather, hence why it looks slimmer and smaller than the fake one.

1. Air Jordan/Fragment logos comparison – the right shoe

Leaving the left shoe aside with the Cactus Jack logos, let’s move to the right real vs fake Travis Scott x Fragment AJ1 Low shoes.

Here we need to deal with the classic Air Jordan logo and with Fragment Design’s logo as well.

fragment jordan 1 low travis scott authentic vs fake

The picture with the real vs replica Travis Scott Fragment AIr Jordan 1 Low shoes above shows you two flaws.

First of all, the letters in the classic “AIR JORDAN” text look too thin and too narrow, while the real ones are thicker and wider.

Then, looking at the Fragment logo, you can see how the fake pair has its circle/thunders fit too little deep into the leather, therefore looking too thin.

As for the real pair, you can observe how the circle/thunder details are fit deeper into the blue leather, hence why the real Fragment Design logo looks thicker.

Step 5: Look at the stitching on the footbed of your Travis Scott x Fragment AJ1 Lows

For the fifth way on how to tell fake Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1s, we are going to look at the shoes for their stitching on the footbed.

The footbed is the part below the insole, s in order to reach it, you need to take out the insoles of your Travis Scott 1 Lows.

fragment cactus jack real vs fake jordan 1 low

This fake vs real Travis Scott Low AJ1 image shows you how the fake pair has a lower stitching density when compared to the real pair’s footbed.

That means that the fake footbed has too few stitches all around its footbed, while looking at the real pair, you can see how there are many more stitches.

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.

Step 6: Authenticate the inflation level of the toe box on your Travis Scott x Fragment AJ1 Lows

Moving forward to the sixth method of the guide on how to tell fake Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low, we are going to talk about the inflation level of the toe boxes.

In order to do so, we need to go to the profile sides of the real vs fake Fragment Travis Scott Air Kordan 1 Low sneakers.

authentic vs fake travis scott fragment jordan low

The image with the authentic vs fake Fragment x Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low sneakers above, we have pointed out how the fake pair has its toe box lifted up too much.

That means that the fake pair’s toe box is too far away from the ground, while the legit pair’s toe box is closer to the ground.

Step 7: Verifiy the Cactus Jack 3M reflective logo on the interior profile side

For the seventh way on how to tell fake Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low, we need to talk about the 3M reflective Cactus Jack logo.

This logo is supposed to be seen on the interior profile sides of the fake vs real Fragment Cactus Jack Air Jordan 1 Low sneakers.

As we’ve said above, there is supposed to be the Cactus Jack logo that can be the most noticeable when put under the flashlight.

Looking at the fake pair of Travis Scott x Fragment 1s, you can see how the logo is… Missing!

On the other hand, you can notice how the Cactus Jack logo is present on the interior profile side of the real AJ1 Low TS Fragments.

Step 8: Inspect the perforations on the toe box of your Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low x Fragment

Proceeding to the eighth way on how to spot real vs fake Travis Scott AJ1 Low Fragment, we have to talk about the toe box again.

Though, this time we need to look at the shoes from a top-down view angle, as we have to focus on the perforations of the toe boxes.

This fake vs real Travis Scott AJ1 Low image above shows you how the fake pair has its perforations on the toe box looking too large.

The same perforations on the real Fragment TS1 Lows look slimmer and narrower than the fake ones.

Step 9: Analyze the exterior Nike AIR tongue badge on the Fragment TS AJ1 Low sneakers

Proceeding to the ninth step of the guide on how to authenticate Nike Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott Fragment, we need to look at the exterior tongue badges.

Precisely, the label which we care about at this step is the one saying Nike AIR.

aj1 low travis fragment real vs fake

Looking at the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott Fragment shoes above, you can see how the fake pair’s registered trademark “®” symbols look too thick.

As for the real pair’s symbols, you can notice how they are thinner and slimmer than the fake pair’s “®” characters.

Step 10: Closely check the Cactus Jack label on the tongue of your Fragment AJ1 Lows

Moving forward to the tenth method on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 Low x Fragment x Cactus Jack, we need to talk about the “Cactus Jack” tongue label.

fragment travis scott jordan low lc guide

As you can see from the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Low Travis Scott x Fragment, the fake pair has its “Cactus Jack” text looking too thin and basically too stretched.

The “stretched” flaw can be noticeable if you look at the letters “C” and “U”, where you can see how they are too tall and seem like they use a different font from the real shoes.

Step 11: Brief the Fragment Design tongue label of your Low Air Jordan 1s

For the eleventh method on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 Fragment travis Scott sneakers, we need to talk about the “FRAGMENT DESIGN” text written on the tongue’s badge.

aj1 low travis scott fragment

The fake pair has its “FRAGMENT DESIGN” text looking too thin and using a different font from the real pair’s text.

Speaking of which, the genuine Travos Scott Lows have their “FRAGMENT DESIGN” text thicker and using a font which has less curvier letters than the fake one.

Step 12: Have a look at the stitching on the Nike Swoosh logo of your Low AJ1s

For the twelfth and also the last step of the guide on how to tell fake Air Jordan 1 Low x Travis Scott x Fragment, let’s talk about the stitching on the white Nike Swoosh logo.

fake vs real travis scott fragment jordan 1 low

As you can see from the real vs fake Travis Scott AJ1 Low x Fragment image above, the fake pair has its stitching on the logo being too little dense.

The same as on the footbed, here are too few stitches on the fake pair’s Swoosh, whereas the real pair has more stitches and the Swoosh looks more consistent than the fake one.
