How to tell if Jordan 1 Bred Toe are fake

You can tell if Air Jordan 1 Bred toe are fake by checking the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text. Fakes always have misplaced text.

1. Interior tongue label

  • The fake Jordans have their “SWOOSH ®” text looking too thick.
  • The “SWOOSH” text on the line below is also too thick on the fake pair.
  • At the same time, the fake shoes have their “SWOOSH” text improperly spaced between their letters.
  • The fake “VOTRE inscription is too small and thick, as it is too hard to read.
  • The fake shoes have their letters in the “QUALITE” print looking too small and too thick.
  • The second “SWOOSH ®” text is too thick and illegible on the fake Jordan 1 Bred Toe.

2. Hourglass shape

  • The hourglass shape is what we call authentic sneakers from the back for::
  • Looking curvy on the upper and bottom sides
  • And being narrow in the middle.
  • The fake shoes have their shape looks less curvy and bumpy than the shape of the authentic shoes.
  • In fact, the fake shoes look more like a straight tube.
  • The authentic shoes have a bumpier shape on the upper and bottom sides of the shoes, and in the middle, they are narrow, as we’ve previously mentioned.

Let’s look at a more detailed comparison of the fake vs real Bred Toe Jordan 1s:

  • The fake shoes have their shape look less bumpy than supposed to.

On the other hand, authentic shoes have a curvier and bumpier look than fake shoes.

3. Air Jordan logo text

  • The fake shoes have their “AIR” text looking thinner than it is supposed to be.
  • The letters “JOR” in the word “JORDAN” are too thin on the fake Bred Toe 1s.
  • The “TM” text seen on the fake Air Jordan 1 Bred Toe is too thick.

4. Air Jordan logo wings

  • The fake shoes have their wings improperly positioned.
  • In fact, the fake shoes have their wings placed far away from each other.
  • On the authentic AJ1s, the wings are placed closer to each other.

Authentic Jordan 1 Bred Toe pairs must have the same amount of space between each wing.

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.

5. Toe box

5.1. Perforations

  • The fake shoes have their perforations on the toe box looking too big and wide when compared to the perforations on the authentic shoes.
  • The legit shoes have their perforations looking narrower and finer than the fake shoes’ perforations.

5.2. Shape

  • The fake shoes have their toe box looking too thick and over-inflated.

By over-inflated, we mean that the fake shoes have their toe box looking too massive and thicker than the authentic shape.

The real toe box is “deflated” in comparison to the fake, looking slimmer and thinner than the fake pair’s toe box.

6. Swoosh

  • The fake shoes have their Nike Swoosh logo placed too low, as it is too close to the midsole.

7. Rear patch

  • The fake shoes have their patch looking too short in height and too wide in width.

The authentic Air Jordan 1 Bred Toe has its patch taller and narrower, and the problem of the fake patch being too big is a common flaw seen on the fake shoes.

8. Cross stitching

  • The fake Jordan 1 Bred Toes have their stitching improperly positioned, as it is too far away from the Nike Swoosh logo.
  • The fake shoes also have their stitching looking curvier and bumpier than the authentic example.

Shortlist: Check your Bred Toe 1s

  1. Examine the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text. Counterfeit AJ1 Bred Toe often displays incorrectly positioned and unevenly weighted text.
  2. Check the hourglass shape. Replica Jordan 1s typically lack the hourglass shape characteristic of authentic pairs.
  3. Verify the lettering of the Air Jordan logo. Fake Air Jordan 1s frequently feature excessively thin and wide lettering in their logos.
  4. Check the placement of the wings in the same logo. Counterfeit shoes commonly have wings that are positioned too close to each other.
  5. Inspect the toe box of your Jordan 1 Bred Toe. Fake Air Jordan 1 Bred Toe often exhibit wide perforation holes in the toe box and an overall appearance of thickness, giving the impression of being over-inflated.
  6. Ensure you examine the placement of the Nike Swoosh logo. Inauthentic shoes usually have their logo situated too low.
  7. Inspect the patch on the rear side of the shoes. Counterfeit shoes frequently feature an oversized and wide patch.
  8. Remember to analyze the cross-stitching on the side of the shoes. Fake Air Jordan 1 Bred Toe often have cross-stitching placed too far from the Nike Swoosh logo.
