The Nike x Travis Scott Air Jordan 6 collaboration came back with the British Khaki, which is the second colourway added to the Cactus Jack AJ6 silhouette.
We’ve previously seen Travis Scott’s AJ6 in the Olive colourway (real vs fake guide here), and with the hype of the fans on the newer colourway, the British Khaki’s have as many replicas out there.
This post is going to teach you everything you need to know when it comes to authenticating Travis Scott’s British Khaki Air Jordan 6 sneakers.
We’d like to assume that because we’ll inspect the shoes both on the inside and outside, as well as even on the box’s label.
At the same time, with every step of the authenticity check process, we will link reference images of the authentic vs replica Air Jordan 6 British Khaki pairs so you could easily notice the details on the real deal and on the fake pairs.
Fake Travis Scott Air Jordan 6 British Khaki pairs never have their text on the size tag and the inscriptions on the rear side properly printed and stitched. The fake pairs always have their size tag’s print too thick, and the rear “NIKE A I R” and the “Cactus Jack” red stitched text often looks too thick a well, while the real Cactus Jack British Khaki AJ6 pairs were manufactured with care and attention to every detail so as to not look like their replicas.
We’re going to being checking the size tags on the fake vs real Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott pairs because as we’ve mentioned before, this is one of the go-to ways when it comes to legit checking the British Khaki pairs.
In order to do so, let’s go ahead and have a look at the fake vs real Air Jordan 6 British Khaki image below, and after that, we’ll let you know in text what happens in this picture (meaning what flaws occur on the fake shoes and how should the real pairs look).
This picture with the fake vs real Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott British Khaki pairs above shows you how the fake pair has a few font-weight flaws.
First of all, looking at the “DH0690-200” text (which is the style-code of these shoes), you can observe how the fake text is way wider and bolder than the real one.
Speaking of which, the authentic Cactus Jack Air Jordan 6 pair’s same inscription about the style-code looks narrower and thinner than the fake one.
Moving further, we’ve pointed out to the “UPC” text and its numbers, and on the fake pair, this line of text looks too thick as well, while the real one is thinner.
In the bottom left corner of the size tag, the line of text that’s placed between the “CN” and the “MADE IN CHINA” text looks too thick – we’re talking about the line of text with the numbers and letters that looks is a different and specific code for each British Khaki AJ6 pair. Yet again, another thicker inscription on the fake pair.
Back to the real Travis Scott British Khaki 6s, you can see how the text above the “MADE IN CHINA” block of text looks thinner than the one seen on the fake pair.
Going back to the top of the size tag, you can see how the fake Air Jordan 6 pair’s “US” text looks too thin, while the real one is thicker.
Lastly, the “SZ” inscription in the top right corner of the size tag appears to be too thick on the replica British Khaki 6s, while the authentic ones have their text thinner.
Proceeding to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Travis Scott Air Jordan 6 British Khaki pairs, we are going to have a look at the shoes from the back.
Travis Scott’s British Khaki 6s have the “NIKE A I R” and the “Cactus Jack” inscriptions stitched into the shoes the same as the Olive colourway, in the middle rear side of the sneakers.
We are first going to look at the real vs fake Cactus Jack AJ6 British Khaki on the left shoe, and after that, we’ll proceed to the comparison on the right shoes as well.
The image with the real vs fake Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott British Khaki shoes above shows you how the fake pair has two flaws: the “NIKE” and the “A I R” texts’ stitchings.
First of all, the “NIKE” text on the fake shoes has too few stitches, and hence that, the text looks way thinner than the real pair’s text, which is thicker and more defined.
At the same time, since the letters are too thin on the fake shoes, they automatically have a lower kerning – the fake pair’s space between the letters is too little.
Back to the genuine Air Jordan 6 Travis Scotts, you can see how the letters have their letters placed a little bit closer to each other than the fake ones.
Now as for the “A I R” text on the fake shoes, we have pointed out how the overall look of the letters is too thick, and this can be easily visible if you stare a bit at the letter “R”.
On the other hand, the genuine shoes have their letters in the “A I R” text looking thinner and more aired when compared to the fake ones.
Since we already spoke about the left shoe, now it’s time that we move to the right shoe in order to quickly check the “Cactus Jack” text logo.
Looking at the image with the fake vs real Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott British Khaki pairs above, you can notice how the fake pair’s letters are way thicker than the real ones.
That aside, the fake British Khaki 6s have their letters too big as well, and yet again, the letters are placed too close to each other. You’ll easily notice this if you look at the amount of space between the letters “u” and “s”.
Leaving the replicas aside, you can see how the authentic Air Jordan 6 Cactus Jacks have their text thinner and with more space in-between each letter.
Moving forward to the third method on how to authenticate Air Jordan 6 CJ British Khaki sneakers, we now want to keep an eye out for the perforations on the side of the shoes.
Both the Olive and the British Khaki Travis Scott Air Jordan 6 pairs must have their perforations placed carefully on the side of the shoes so as to not make contact with the midsoles.
As we’ve mentioned in the picture above, you can see the proven fact: the real shoes’ perforations don’t merge with the midsole, as they stop just above the textured midsole.
On the other hand, the fake Travis Scott British Khaki sneakers have their holes placed as low as they make contact with the midsole, and that’s something that never happens on a retail pair.
In the fourth step of the guide on how to spot fake Cactus Jack Air Jordan British Khaki pairs, we now have to deal with the fabric which builds the shoes on all sides.
This tell is basically going to show you how the material on your shoes has to be. With this being said, let’s brief the fake vs real Travis Scott British Khaki AJ6 image below.
The picture with the authentic vs fake Travis Scott Air Jordan 6 British Khaki shoes above, we have pointed out how the authentic shoes have a lighter and a more “alive” shade when compared to the fake pair’s material.
Speaking of the fakes, you can see how the fake pair above has its material darker and how it has a less vibrant colour.
In fact, the fake pair’s fabric gets you in-between thoughts whether you are looking at the Olive or at the British Khaki Travis Scott Air Jordan 6 pairs, while the real ones definitely tell you that these are the British Khakis.
The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways to authenticate this item.
The next few steps are still reliable signs of authenticity, but are for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the steps we’ve explained above to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.
Going to the fifth way on how to legit check these shoes, we have to stay on the profile side of the shoes, but this time, we’ll just zoom a bit into the front side of the fake vs real Air Jordan 6 British Khaki Travis Scott pairs in order to look at the toe boxes.
You can notice in this image with the real vs fake Travis Scott AJ6 pairs how the fake item’s toe box has a very deflated look when compared to the real one.
Going more into detail, what we mean is that the fake pair’s toe box looks too thin and too little high, since it is way flatter than what it should be like.
The authentic Travis Scott Air Jordan 6 pair’s toe box is inflated more than the fake one, and it has a way thicker and bulkier look than its replica.
The sixth legit checking method for the Travis Scott Air Jordan 6 British Khakis will bring us to the upper profile side of the shoes.
The iconic pocket from the olive colourway remains even on the British Khaki AJ6s, and as the olive pair, this brown pair’s replicas also have some major flaws in terms of colours and shades.
The image with the authentic vs fake British Khaki Air Jordan 6 shoes above shows you how the fake pair has its brown pocket in a way different colour, as the shade of brown is incorrect.
The retail Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott British Khaki pair above is pretty much the ultimate example on how the pocket of a real pair should look like.
Of course, minor differences would occur in photos taken to different legitimate pictures, and in most cases, this is only due to the lighting, so at the end of the day, we don’t consider this the go-to authenticity factor for the AJ6 British Khakis.
The seventh way of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott sneakers will have us looking at the little red Jumpman that’s located right in the middle of the shoes: on the tongue.
As in most of the cases, the fake Travis Scott Air Jordan 6 pairs have their Jumpman’s fingers too thin and smaller than what they have to be like.
On the other hand, the authentic AJ6 shoes have their red logo’s fingers thicker, bulkier and bigger than the ones seen even on the best fakes.
Moving forward to the eighth step of the guide on how to authenticate Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott British Khaki sneakers, we are going to have a look at the shoes for their badges on top of the laces.
These badges basically help you lace your shoes, as the shoelaces go through these plastic tubes that state Cactus Jack’s logo.
In the image with the real vs fake Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott shoes above, we’ve highlighted how the fake pair uses the wrong logo.
The authentic shoes should always have the Cactus Jack logo on both the left and the right shoe’s plastic badges above the laces, while the fake ones have the Air Jordan logo.
The image above shows you how the authentic shoes are supposed to have only the Cactus Jack logo on both the left and the right shoe’s plastic badges, unlike the fake pairs which usually tend to have the Aor Jordan logo.
The ninth step of the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott sneakers will bring us to the midsole, where we are going to have a quick look at the white Cactus Jack face logo.
The picture with the fake vs real Travis Scott 6s above highlights how the fake pair’s logo has all of its lines a little bit thinner than the real ones.
We’ve ranked this tell as the ninth one because it may be harder to notice the lines being thinner here, as well as because, in time, the worn pairs are most likely to have this face faded out.
For the tenth and the last method of the Travis Scott Air Jordan 6 British khaki authentication process, we are going to look at the packaging boxes of the shoes.
Glued to the box, you’ll see this white, long and flat label on the side. For reference, let’s have a look at the fake vs real Travis Scott AJ6 British khaki pairs’ labels on the boxes.
The picture with the fake vs authentic Cactus Jack Air Jordan 6 box labels above shows you how the “AIR JORDAN 6 RETRO SP” and the “USA” inscriptions look too thin on the fake shoes.
On the other hand, the genuine Travis Scott AJ6’s label glued to the box has these two same inscriptions looking thicker and more defined than the fake ones.
The nine fake vs real Air Jordan 6 Cactus Jack Travis Scott steps outlined above are well detailed and it will be time demanding to perform each authentication step when you need to confirm the originality of your Jordans.
