We all know the Travis Scott “Mocha” Jordan 1 Low collaboration. In 2021, the team reunited once again.
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 and the high-top version.
Fragment x Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 1 Low 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 Air Jordan 1 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.
You can spot fake Fragment x Travis Scott Jordan 1 Low by checking if the size tag has very thick text. Bold inscriptions always indicate a fake pair. Authentic size tags always look the same, having slightly thin text.
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.
Now, let’s see the real vs fake comparison.
The image with the fake vs real Fragment Cactus Jack Air Jordan 1 Low above shows you four flaws – let’s take each one of those individually, in the same order in which they’re being counted.
This inscription stands for the unique style code of these sneakers: “DM7866-140“.
The real pair’s style code is thinner and the characters are narrower than the fake ones.
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 real shoes have their “UPC” text/numbers thinner and with more space in between.
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.
Real Fragment x Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low has text thicker and 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.
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.
On the other hand, the genuine Travis Scott Fragment 1 Lows have thicker and shorter/boxier prints.
Finding it too hard? Have our experts legit check your Travis Scotts:
This image with the fake vs real Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 x Fragment comparison shows how the fake pair has its text badly detailed, and how the real one is flawless.
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.
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.
A real pair of Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low have their “SWOOSH®” inscription’s characters looking thinner and with a larger kerning, therefore the characters look more aired than the fake ones.
Similar to the Fragment x Travis Scott pair, this kind of flaw occurs on the fake Black Phantom Travis Scott 1 Low.
It isn’t easy to spot a fake pair via the inner tongue label, and we know that. If you find it too hard, you can always rely on our expert Nike x Travis Scott authentications team.
Our team of professionals is always happy to give you peace of mind for your Fragment x Travis Scott Jordan 1s.
Most of the fake pairs don’t have their midsole’s text properly font-weighted and spelt.
Looking at the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Low x Travis Scott x Fragment image above:
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 ones.
The low-top Fragment x Travis Scott Jordan 1 midsole should read:
“FA-21-MNJDLS-358-TRAVIS-HIROSHI/TOOLINGCODE: OS283 F-8-99“.
In the image above, you can see the following issues with the fake pair:
This flaw is caused due to the little attention paid to detail by the replica manufacturers:
You’ll never see an authentic pair saying “642” — that is a 100% giveaway for a replica low-top pair.
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 Air Jordan 1 Travis Scott Fragment shoes on the left pair, and then we’re going to look at the right pair.
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 Travis Scott on this side.
Looking at the replica Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low:
On the other hand, the same three lines on the real shoes are thinner and they are smaller than the fake ones.
The authentic Travis Scott x Fragment Air Jordan 1 Low has its face logo fit less deep into the bleu leather, hence why it looks slimmer and smaller than the fake one.
Notice how the authentic Travis Scott x Fragment 1 Low’s “AIR JORDAN” text is thicker.
Authentic pairs also have wider inscriptions that take up more space compared to the fake example above.
As for the real pair, you can observe how the circle/thunder details fit deeper into the blue leather, hence why the real Fragment Design logo looks thicker.
The footbed is the part below the insole. To reach it, you need to take out the insoles of your Fragment x Travis Scott 1 Low.
“Footbed” and “insole stitching” mean the same thing: the grey part underneath the insole.
This fake vs real Fragment Travis Scott Low Air Jordan 1 image shows you how:
Looking at the real pair, you can see how there are many more stitches. An authentic pair must have dense stitching, just as shown in the comparison image above.
A quick mention:
If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.
In the image with the authentic vs fake Fragment x Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low above:
You’re going to see this flaw on the Reverse Mocha Travis Scotts too. Often fake Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low shoes tend to have lower toe boxes compared to the real deal.
You’ll need to light up the logo with your phone’s flashlight in order to see it.
This logo is supposed to be seen on the interior profile sides of the fake vs real Fragment Cactus Jack Air Jordan 1 Low.
On the other hand, you can notice how the Cactus Jack logo is present on the interior profile side of the real Air Jordan 1 Low TS Fragments.
The same perforations on the real Fragment TS1 Lows look slimmer and narrower than the fake ones.
Coincidence or not, this also happens on the fake Olive Travis Scott Air Jordan 1s.
As for the real pair’s symbols, you can notice how they are thinner and slimmer than the fake pair’s “®” characters.
Then, there’s more space in between the “®” and the “NIKE” text since they are thinner than the fake counterpart.
As you can see from the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Low Travis Scott x Fragment image above:
All of the real “Cactus Jack” tongue labels should look like the authentic example above.
Speaking of which, the genuine Travis Scott Lows have their “FRAGMENT DESIGN” text thicker and use a font which has less curvy letters than the fake one.
As you can see from the real vs fake Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low x Fragment image above:
The real pair has more stitches and the Swoosh looks more consistent than the fake one.
