How to tell if Black Cat 4s are fake
You can tell if Black Cat 4s are fake if the stitching below the cage has a a big gap between the two vertical lines. Real Jordans must have a small gap over there.
We’ll start with this step since it is the best one to tell fakes.
Thicker, longer stitches.
Top and bottom lines are closer to each other.
Thinner and shorter threads.

Shortlist: How to tell fake Black Cat 4s
Ensure the text on the
size tag is not overly bold or thick. Examine
stitching under the cage for high detail; fakes often have inconsistent spacing and wider stitches. Observe the
back stitching for thin, inconsistent threads. Check the
tongue for “AIR JORDAN” text; it’s thin and narrow on fakes. Look at the
tongue stitching; it’s thicker on real pairs. Examine the
toe box; fakes have a flatter toe box. Inspect the
box’s label for thinner text and less letter spacing than the real Air Jordan 4 box. I want to legit check my Black Cat 4s
