The most relevant detail to spot fake Travis Scott AJ1 Low Reverse Mocha is the interior tongue label. Fake pairs always have their text at the wrong thickness. This is a detail that’s never to be seen as flawed on the real Travis Scott Jordan 1s, as the text is always perfectly detailed on the real deal.

Travis Scott is back at it again with the iconic reverse-Swoosh Air Jordan 1s, and he’s added the Reverse Mochas to the line-up of Air Jordan 1 Low.

If this is not the colourway that you’re looking to legit check, have a look at these guides for other colourways of the Travis Scott Jordan 1 Low: Dark Mocha Lows, Fragment Lows, Black Phantom Lows, Olive Lows.

If you’re about to buy the Travis Scott Jordan 1 Low Reverse Mocha and don’t know whether you’re looking at a real or fake pair, there’s no need to worry anymore. This tutorial will teach you everything about legit checking these shoes.

How to spot fake Travis Scott Jordan 1 Low Reverse Mocha

You can tell if you’re holding a fake pair of Travis Scott Jordan 1 Low Reverse Mocha by checking the interior tongue labe, as fake pairs always have text at the wrong thickness.

Though, we’ve already given the short answer. Let’s now proceed to look at the full fake vs real comparison.

1. Interior tongue label

Step summary: Fake shoes always have their text misplaced and at the wrong font-weight.

The interior side of the tongue is what we’ve always believed to be the best authenticity tells on the Nike Air Jordan 1s. Therefore, we always recommend looking at this label first, if possible.

  • The fake pair’s “SWOOSH” text at the top of the label is too thick.
  • The same word’s letters “OO” are too small. On the real pair, it’s actually the opposite.
  • The “SWOOSH®” text in the middle of the label is too thick on the fake pair.
    • Most noticeable in the letters “S” and “W”.
  • The “VOTRE” print on the lower-left side of the label is too big.
  • The same “VOTRE” text is too thick on the fakes.

2. Suede effect

Step summary: Fake suede never leaves traces behind when touched.

  • The fake pair’s brown suede is static, as it doesn’t have any darker areas.
  • The suede has the same shade all over the toe box (and the rest of the shoes).

If you look at the brown panels on the real shoes, you can observe how some areas are darker than others. As soon as the real suede is touched, it leaves traces behind.

This effect is almost never present in the fake pairs. If it is present, it’s never as detailed as the real suede’s effect.

3. Toe box

Step summary: Fake sneakers tend to have their toe boxes too flat.

The image with the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Low Travis Scott Reverse Mochas shows you how:

  • The fake pair’s toe box is too flat.
  • The fake pair’s toe box is too little curvy, and the white leather above the midsole is too small.

The genuine pair’s overall look of the toe box is way curvier and rounded, and above, the white leather is a bit bulkier and bigger than the fake pair’s leather.

4. Medial text

Step summary: Fake Reverse Mocha AJ1 Low pairs have their red logo too thin.

The medial text is the red ‘Cactus Jack’ logo visible on the interior profile sides of the shoes.

  • The fake pair’s “Cactus Jack” text is too thin.
  • This can be most noticeable if you look at the letters “C” and “A”.
  • The three lines visible above the text are too thin on the fake pair.

Even though we’ve compared the left shoe in the image above, you may see the same flaws occur on the fake right shoe as well.

5. Rear logos

Step summary: Fake pairs always have their stitching too little dense.

We’re going to talk about each of the shoes individually. First, let’s start with the Cactus Jack face logo.

5.1. Cactus Jack face (left shoe)

The fake vs real Jordan 1 Travis Scott Low Reverse Mocha image above shows you how:

  • The fake Cactus Jack logo has its hair too little dense.
  • There are not as many stitches as they need to be.
  • The white stitching all around the patch with the Cactus Jack face logo is too thin on the fake pair
  • The same stitching is too small on the replica.

Notice how the real pair’s hair is denser, as there are many more red threads. The same goes for the white threads.

5.2. Air Jordan logo (right shoe)

  • The fake pair’s wings are too thin. and the real ones are thicker.
  • There’s also way too much empty space in between the fake wings.

All of this never occurs on the real Travis Scott 1s in this colourway.

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.

6. Perforations

Step summary: Remember that fake pairs always have (way) smaller toe box holes.

  • The holes on the replica pair appear to be way too small.

The same holes on the real sneakers are larger, and they generally have a bigger look than the ones seen on the fake pair.

7. Swoosh stitching

Step summary: Replica Reverse Mocha Jordan 1 Low pairs have their stitching too thin.

  • The fake pair’s stitching is too thin. The real pair’s threads are thicker.
  • The fake Jordan 1s also have their stitches too short, while the authentic ones are longer.

8. Exterior tongue label

Step summary: The “®” symbol on the fake shoes is usually too small.

  • The “®” character looks too small on the fake pair. The same text is bigger on the real shoes.

Shortlist: Legit check your shoes in 30 seconds

  1. The interior tongue label: fake pairs never always have their text too thick or too thin, and also misplaced.
  2. Suede effect: genuine pairs always leave traces as soon as you touch the brown parts, while fakes don’t always do.
  3. Toe box level: replica Travis Scott AJ1 Low pairs tend to have their toe box too little curvy.
  4. Medial text: always too thin on the counterfeit Travis Scott 1 Low.
