Are you looking to learn how to spot fake Air Jordan 3 x Fragment? Trying not to get scammed with a fake Fragment 3 pair?

If so, you are in the right place to learn how to authenticate Fragment Air Jordan 3 sneakers, because in this guide, we are going to let you know the best ways to spot fake Fragment 3 shoes.

Each step will be clear and easy to follow, as we are going to link reference fake vs real Fragment Air Jordan 3 images in order for every piece of information to be understandable.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Fragment Air Jordan 3 pairs is to check the size tag inside each shoe, as the fake pairs never have their inscriptions at the right thickness. Another reliable sign of authenticity for the Fragment 3s is the interior tongue label, because the same flaw from the size tag applies there as well in most cases of the fake pairs.

How to spot fake Fragment Air Jordan 3 sneakers

Step 1: Fake vs real Fragment x Air Jordan 3 size tag

As we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the size tag inside each shoe as the most reliable sign of authenticity when speaking of the fake vs real Fragment AJ3 pairs.

Therefore, this is why we have started the guide on how to spot fake Fragment Air Jordan 3s with the size tag.

Now, let’s have a look at the reference Fragment 3 real vs fake image below in order to properly differentiate between the two pairs.

fake vs real fragment 3

In the fake vs real Fragment Air Jordan 3 image above, we have pointed out how the fake Fragment 3 pair has three main flaws.

First, looking at the “DA3595-100” (the product unique ID code for the Fragment Air Jordan 3s)on the top right corner of the size tag, we have pointed out in the real vs fake Fragment 3 image above how the fake pair has its text too thin.

On the other hand, looking at the authentic Fragment Air Jordan 3s, you can see how the same line of text appears to be thicker and more defined than the one found on the fake pair.

Going one line of text lower, we have pointed out in the real vs fake Fragment AJ3 image above how the fake pair has its UPC unique ID code looking too thin as well.

Yet again, the legitimate Fragment Air Jordan 3s have their inscription on the UPC code as well looking thicker and more defined than the fake pair’s code.

At the same time, you can notice how the fake shoes’ UPC code also uses a different font from the authentic shoes’ text.

Lastly, looking in the bottom left corner of the size tag, we have pointed out in the real vs fake Air Jordan 3 Fragment image above how the fake pair has its “MADE IN CHINA” lines of text at different font-weights.

In fact, the fake pair has a few letters in these lines of text looking too thick, such as the letter “M” in the “MADE” text, and other letters looking too thin, just as the letters “F” in every word.

As you may see, the authentic AJ3 Fragment pair has its “MADE IN CHINA” lines of text looking more defined fake pair’s text.

By that, we mean that the authentic Fragment AJ3s have all of their letters at the same thickness.

Step 2: Inspect the interior tongue labels of your Fragment 3s

For the second way on how to spot fake Fragment Designs x Air Jordan 3 shoes, we are going to look at the real vs fake Fragment 3 pairs for the interior tongue labels.

Just as we’ve mentioned at the top of the guide on how to authenticate Fragment 3 pairs, we consider this as another top sign of authenticity for these shoes, so we recommend that you never skip checking the interior tongue labels.

Now, as you may expect, we are going to have a look at the reference real vs fake Air Jordan 3 Fragment Designs image below, and then, we will explain the flaws on the fake pair.

aj3 fragment real vs fake

In the image containing the real vs fake Fragment AJ3 pairs above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have two easily visible flaws.

First of all, looking at the stitching all around the label, you can notice how the replica Fragment 3s have a big extra thread, while the authentic shoes have all of their stitches in place.

Even the authentic Fragment 3s can occur some errors at the quality check  since they can have extra threads as well, but a pair with such big threads hanging wouldn’t have passed the authentic Nike quality check.

Therefore, we recommend being a little “gentle” when you are checking the stitching on the labels since small flaws can occur on the legit shoes as well since they are mass-produced.

Then, talking about the “fragment” text on the interior tongue label, you can notice how the fake shoes have their text looking too thin.

Moving on to the authentic Fragment Air Jordan 3s, you can see how they have their “fragment” text looking thicker and more defined than the fake pair’s text.

Due to the thickness flaw, automatically, ttheeh fake shoes have more space between their letters, since they are too thin, while the authentic letters being thicker, they have less space between.

With this being said for the second way on how to legit check Fragment Air Jordan 3s, let’s move on to the next way on how to spot fake Fragment AJ3s pairs.

Step 3: Check the text on the midsole of your Fragment Air Jordan 3s

For the third method on how to authenticate Air Jordan 3 Fragment pairs, we are going to have a look at the Fragment Design inscription printed on the midsoles of the fake vs real Fragment 3 pairs.

First of all, we are going to have a look at the reference retail vs replica Fragment Air Jordan 3 image below.

Most of the time, the fake pairs have their text at the wrong font-weight, but also using different fonts from the retail pairs.

jordan 3 fragment fake vs real

In fact, in the real vs fake Air Jordan 3 Fragment image above, we have noticed how the fake pair has both of these flaws.

First of all, the fake pair has its whole line of text on the midsole using a different font from the legit pair’s letters.

Then, the letters on the fake pair’s text are also thicker than what they are supposed to be like on the legitimate pairs.

At the same time, due to the thickness flaw, the kerning on the fake pair’s letters is also wrong, since the fake pair’s letters are placed too close to each other.

The legitimate Fragment Air Jordan 3s have their letters thinner and with more distance between.

The replica Fragment Air Joran 3s also have their letters looking ab it too big when compared to the letters found on the legitimate shoes, and that’s yet another consequence of the letters being too thick on the fake pair.

Now, let’s move on to the fourth method on how to spot fake Fragment x Air Jordan 3 sneakers.

Step 4: Look at the Fragment Design logo on the side of your AJ3 pair

Proceeding to the fourth method on how to spot fake Fragment x Air Jordan 3 shoes, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Fragment AJ3 pairs for the Fragment Design logo engraved on the side of the shoes.

fake vs real jordan 3 fragment

In the image containing the fake vs real AJ3 Fragment pairs above, we have pointed out how the fake pair has its logo at the wrong thickness due to how deep it was engraved into the leather part of the shoes.

In fact, the fake shoes have their Fragment Design logo fit too deep into the shoes, therefore having a thicker look than the legit shoes’ logo.

The authentic Fragment Air Jordan 3s have their Fragment Design logo looking thinner and printed in a nicer manner than the one on the fake shoes because it is fit less deep into the leather part.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways on how to authenticate this item.

The tells listed below this point are still reliable signs of authenticity, but for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the top tells we’ve explained above this point to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

Step 5: Real vs fake Air Jordan 3 Fragment rear details

For the fifth method on how to spot fake Air Jordan 3 Fragment shoes, we are going to flip the real vs fake Fragment 3 pairs to the rear side and have a look at the “A I R” classic Air Jordan 3 inscription.

In the image with the real vs fake Fragment Air Jordan 3 image above we have pointed out how the fake pair has its letters at the wrong thickness.

By that, we mean that the fake Fragment Air Jordan 3 shoes have their “A I R” text looking too thin and narrow.

On the other hand, the authentic shoes have their “A I R” text looking thicker and wider/bigger than the fake pair’s inscription.

Step 6: Analyze the Jumpman on the tongue of your shoes

Most of the replica Nike Air Jordan shoes that have a Jumpman on their tongue tend to have it looking too thick.

With this being said, that is the case for the majority of the replica Air Jordan 3 Fragment Design shoes as well.

In the real vs fake Fragment Air Jordan 3 image above, we have pointed out how the replica Fragment 3s have their Jumpman looking too thick in three areas.

The thickness flaw on the fake shoes’ Jumpman can be visible on both of the hands and the right leg, where these body parts are too thick.

On the other hand, the legitimate Air Jordan 3 Fragment sneakers ave their Jumpman at the right stitching thickness on all sides of the logo, looking thinner than the fake pair’s stitching which crafts the logo.

Step 7:  Verify the stitching on the side of your shoes

Moving on to the seventh method on how to spot fake Fragment Air Jordan 3s, we are now going to look at the shoes from the side, and we will have a look at their s stitching.

Since the stitching lines are dominant on the side of the Fragment 3s, this is pretty much one of the most important details to check on the white leather side of the shoes.

For now, let’s verify the reference real vs fake Fragment Air Jordan 3 image below in order to easily spot the differences between the shoes.

fragment 3 real vs fake

In the image containing the real vs fake Fragment Air Jordan 3 shoes above, we have pointed out how the replica AJ3s have their stitching at the wrong thickness.

In fact, the fake shoes have their stitches looking bulkier and a bit thicker than the authentic Fragment 3s’ stitches.

The authentic Fragment Air Jordan 3 shoes have their stitches looking less bulky and thick than the fake shoes’ stitching, since the legit Air Jordan 3 Fragment pair has its stitching thinner.

Step 8: Look at the stitching on the midsole of your AJ3 Fragment pair

Moving on to the eighth method on how to spot fake Fragment x Air Jordan 3 shoes, we are going to have a look at the stitching on the midsole of the shoes.

First of all, let’s brief the reference real vs fake Fragment AJ3 image below, and after that, we will explain the situation between the two pairs.

In the image with the real vs fake Fragment Air Jordan 3 image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their stitching on the middle improperly weighted.

By that, we mean that the fake shoes have their stitching on the middle at the wrong thickness mount, since it is thin and too long.

The stitches found on the midsole of the authentic Air Jordan 3 Fragment shoes look thinner and shorter Han the ones found on the fake pair’s midsole stitching.

Step 9: Inspect the inflation level on the toe box of your Fragment 3s

As for the ninth way on how to spot fake Air Jordan 3 Fragment shoes, we are going to learn how to check the inflation level of the fake vs real Fragment AJ3 pairs.

In most cases, the fake pairs have their toe box looking too thick when compared to the toe box of the authentic shoes.

At the same time, the replica Fragment 3s have their toe box looking too curvy, while the legitimate shoes have their two box less arched and curvy.

Step 10: Examine the packaging paper of your shoes

Going into the box of the real vs fake Fragment Air Jordan 3s, we are now going to have a look at the packaging paper found as soon as you open the box of the shoes.

In the fake vs real Fragment Air Jordan 3 image above, we have pointed auth ow the fake shoes have their Fragment Design and the Air Jordan Jumpman logos looking too little opaque due to inferior quality of printing when compared to the legit paper.

On the other hand, the legitimate shoes’ packaging box has its Fragment Designs and the Air Jordan Jumpman logos looking more opaque and more defined than the fake pair’s logos printed on the packaging paper.

Step 11: Real vs fake Fragment Air Jordan 3 box label

Lastly, for the eleventh way on how to spot fake Air Jordan 3 Fragment shoes, we are going to have a look at the box label of the real vs fake Fragment 3 pairs.

In most cases, the fake shoes have their inscriptions n the box label looking too thin when compared to the real deal.
