If you are here because you want to learn how to spot fake Air Jordan 2, then you are in the right place.
By reading this article, you will easily learn the main ways to spot fake Air Jordan 2, with the help of our reference fake vs real Air Jordan 2 images.
Before we begin the real vs fake Air Jordan 2 legit check guide, we’d like to mention that this guide applies to most of the colourways of the AJ2.
The fastest way to spot fake Air Jordan 2 sneakers is to check the size tag inside each shoe, as the quality of the fake shoes’ inscriptions on the size tag never compares to what the legit sneakers look like. Most of the time, the fake shoes have their text improperly font-weighted and positioned, while the text on the legit shoes must be flawless.
As we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the size tag as the most reliable sign of authenticity when speaking of the Air Jordan 2s, and this is why we are starting this fake vs real Air Jordan 2 legit check guide with the size tag.
First of all, let’s have a quick look at the fake vs real Air Jordan 2 image below in order to see how to spot fake AJ2 sneakers.
In the Air Jordan 2 real vs fake image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their product ID number looking differently font-weighted than the one on the legit shoes.
Worth mentioning is that this number differs from each colourway of the Air Jordan 2, so if your sneakers don’t have the number from the legit shoes in the real vs fake Aj2 image above, there’s nothing to worry about.
So, once again, the fake shoes have their number on the middle side of the size tag looking too thick, while the legit shoes have their numbers looking thinner.
Then, if you look at the “MADE IN CHINA” and at the “FABRIQUE EN CHINA” (it’s either China or Vietnam, but the flaw still applies to both of the size tags with these inscriptions), you can see how the fake shoes have their text also too thick, while the legit shoes have their text looking thinner.
Moving on to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 2 sneakers, we are going to check out the real vs fake Air Jordan 2 pairs for the classic Air Jordan logo on the tongue.
In the fake vs real Air Jordan 2 image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their “AIR JORDAN” text looking too thick, and how the legit shoes have their text looking thinner.
Besides, the fake shoes also have their wings improperly spaced between, as they have too much distance between their wings.
For the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 2 sneakers, we are going to check out the real vs fake Air Jordan 2 sneakers from the rear side.
As we’ve mentioned at the top of the guide, we are first going to check out the real vs fake AJ2 image in order to visualise and easily understand the flaws on the fake shoes.
Looking at the real vs fake Air Jordan 2 image above, you can see how the fake shoes have their shape looking too bulky and wide from the back, while the authentic sneakers have a narrower shpa.e
Proceeding to the fourth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 2 sneakers, we are going to check out the perforations on the side of the sneakers.
In the real vs fake Air Jordan 2 image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their perforations looking too big, and how they are placed too much to the back of the shoes.
On the other hand, the legit shoes have their holes looking smaller, and not only that, but they are also closer to the front side of the shoes.
