This guide teaches you how to legit check any Jordan 6s.

By the end, you’ll know if you’re about to buy a real or fake pair.

How to tell if your Jordan 6 is fake or real

To tell if you have a real or fake Jordan 6, make sure to check the size tag inside each sneaker. Fakes tend to have thicker numbers and letters compared to authentic ones.

1. Size tag

  • The date of manufacturing print is too thick, and it goes out of the size tag on the fake shoes.
  • The fake Air Jordan 6s have their date of manufacturing looking too thick.
  • The”MADE IN CHINA” and the “FABRIQUE EN CHINE” prints are too thick on the fake Jordan 6.

2. Perforations

  • The fake Air Jordan 6 have their holes on the side of the shoes merging with the midsole.

On the other hand, the retail Air Jordan 6’s have their perforations on the side of the shoes placed so as not to make contact with the midsole.

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.

3. Rear details

  • The replica Air Jordan 6 shoes have their “NIKE” and “A I R” logos too thin.
  • The Nike Swoosh logo on the fake Air Jordan 6 is also too thick compared to the retail AJ6’s Nike Swoosh logo.

4. Jumpman below the laces

  • The fake Air Jordan 6 has the Jumpman’s upper arm looking too thick.
  • The fake pair’s head of the Jumpman looks isn’t as curvy as smooth as the real logo’s.
  • The arm without the ball (the lower/the right arm) is too thick and boxy on the fake Jordan 6.
  • The replica Air Jordan 6s have their Jumpman’s body looking less curvy and bumpy.

5. Tongue

  • The replica Air Jordan 6’s have their tongue looking too textured.
  • More noticeable if you put the shoes into the light.

Looking at the authentic Air Jordan 6’s, you can see how the tongue is not as textured as the replica Air Jordan 6’s tongue.

6. Reflectiveness (3M)

  • The replica Jordan 6s have their 3M reflective material with poorer quality.
  • The fake shoes reflect too little light.

On the other hand, it is visible how the authentic Air Jordan 6’s reflect more quality, with a powerful tone.

Shortlist: Jordan 6 Legit Checking

  1. Check the size tag of your shoes. Mostly, the replica AJ6 sneakers have their text on the size tag improperly positioned and font-weighted.
  2. Verify the sneakers on the side for the holes. The fake shoes usually have their holes merging with the midsole, and that’s something you’ll never see on the legit Air Jordan 6 pairs.
  3. Analyze the shoes from the back. Most of the time, the replica Air Jordan 6 sneakers have their “NIKE AIR” text looking too thin, and the Nike Swoosh logo looking too thick.
  4. Examine the Jumpman on the lacing area of your shoes. Usually, the fake Air Jordan 6 sneakers have their Jumpman on the lacing area improperly stitched and curved on the sneakers.
  5. Verify the texture level of the tongue. The fake Air Jordan 6 shoes are known to have their tongue looking too textured, and this is the easiest visible when the shoes are in the light.
  6. Check the sneakers for the 3M reflective material. Mostly, the replica Air Jordan 6 pairs have their 3M reflective material shining too little while in light due to poor craftsmanship.
