How to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0

Step 1: Fake vs real Air Jordan 1 SBB 3.0 interior tongue label

As we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the interior tongue label with multiple lines of text as the most reliable sing of authenticity when speaking of the real vs fake Shattered Backboard 3.0 Air Jordan 1s.

Therefore, this is why we are starting the guide on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 SBB 3.0 sneakers with the interior tongue label.

Now, as mentioned at the top of the article, we are first going to check the reference real vs fake Shattered Backboard 3.0 AJ1 image below, and then, we will explain the flaws on the fake shoes.

First of all, we will start with explaining the flaws on the fake shoes from the real vs fake SBB 3.0 Air Jordan 1 image above from the ones at the top of the label, going all the way up to the bottom of the label.

fake vs real aj1 sbb 3.0

In the real vs fake Air Jordan 3 Shattered Backboard 3.0 image above, we have pointed out how the fake SBB 3.0s have their word “YOUR” too thin when compared to the legit shoes’ text.

The authentic Shattered Backboard 3.0 AJ1s have their “YOUR” text looking thicker than the one found on the replica SBB 3.0s.

Then, one line lower, you can see how the fake shoes have their “GUARANTEE” word in the upper side of the label looking too thin.

On the other hand, speaking of the legit Shattered Backboard 3.0s, we have noticed how they have their same “GUARANTEE” word looking thicker and more defined than the fake label’s text.

Up next, going to the “SWOOSH” text in the middle text box, it is noticeable how the replica sneakers have their letters too thin as well.

Leaving the font-weight aside, it is also noticeable in the real vs fake AJ1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 image above how the fake Air Jordan 1s have their text improperly spaced between, as there is too much space between the letters.

The kerning/spacing problem is caused on the replica Air Jordan 1s due to the font-weight, and so, since the fake shoes have their text too thin, nether is too much space between the letters.

Going two lines of text lower on the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0’s size tags, we have noticed how the fake shoes have both their “VOTRE” and “QUALITE” words too thin, but also wavily positioned.

By “wavily positioned”, we mean that the fake shoes have their two words’ letters baldy positioned, as some of the letters don’t have the correct, straight and flawless shape.

This can be noticeable if you look at the letters “E” and “L” for example, where you can notice how the fake shoes have their sticks which form the letters crooked when compared to the authentic shoes’ letters.

One again, all of the letters found on the retail Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 shoes are more defined, properly font-weighted, shaped and positioned.

And so, lastly, looking at the “MADE IN CHINA” and at the “FABRIQUE EN CHINE” texts, we have noticed in the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 image above how the fake shoes have heir words too thin as well.

Yet again, the two lines of text found on the legitimate Air Jordan 1 SBB 3.0s are thicker and more defined than the fake shoes’ two lines of text.

With this being said for the first step on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0, let’s move on to the next one.

Step 2: Real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 hourglass shape

Moving on to the next way on how to authenticate Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 sneakers, we will have a look at the shoes from the rear side.

The authentic Air Jordan 1 SBB 3.0s must look like an hourglass from the rear side, meaning that they must be bumpy on the lower on the upper sides of the shoes, and in the middle, they must have a narrowing.

So as to properly see this detail, let’s have a look at the real vs fake Shattered Backboard 3.0 Air Jordan 1 image below.

As previously mentioned, it is noticeable in the image above how the authentic Shattered Backboard 3.0 Air Jordan 1s have their shape curvier on the lower and upper sides, and in the middle, they have a narrower.

Speaking of the replica Shattered Backboard 1s, you can see how they are indeed curvy, but just a for a bit, as they are not as curvy as the authentic Air Jordan 1s.

In order to understand this better, let’s have a look at the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 image below that helps us see this better.

real vs fake air jordan 1 sbb

In the fake vs real Shattered Backboard 3.0 Air Jordan 1 image above, we drew lines in order to point out the correct shape of the shoes, but also two lines for the fake shoes as well.

As the lines go along with the shapes of the shoes, you can see how the retail Air Jordan 1s have their lines curvier, and how the fake shoes have their lines less curvy.

Please keep in mind that the hourglass shape may not be visible while the shoes are on-foot, and we recommend that you always check your SBB 3.0 Air Jordan 1s for the hourglass shape when they are worn in that moment.

Step 3: Look at the inflation level of the toe box on your Air Jordan 1 shoes

For the third method on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 sneakers, we are going to talk about the inflation level of the toe box on both the fake vs real SBB 3.0 AJ1s.

The authentic shoes must have their toe box looking “deflated”, while most of the time, the fake shoes have their toe box over-inflated, and as consequence, they look too thick.

In the fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their toe box looking too thick, while the authentic shoes have their toe box deflated.

Once again, the authentic SBB 3.0s must have their toe box looking deflated, and not being too thick and pumped up.

Moving on to the fourth method on how to spot fake Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 sneakers, we will have a look at the real vs fake Shattered Backboard 3.0 AJ1s for the classic logo’s text.

As you may be used to already, we will first have a quick look at the reference fake vs real Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard image below.

how to spot fakea aj1 sbb

In the real vs fake Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 image above, we have pointed out three main flaws visible on the fake SBB’s.

First of all, looking at the letters in the “AIR” text, you can see how the fake 3.0 Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard shoes have their letters looking too thin compared to the authentic AJ1’s.

Not only that, but the letter “R” also has its bottom right leg looking too short compared to the legit sneakers’ leg.

Then, moving on to the “JORDAN” text, you can see how the fake shoes have their letters “J”, “O” and “N” looking too thin compared to the retail shoes, and how the rest of the letters appear to be too thick on the fake shoes.

Lastly, looking at the “TM” text, it is easily noticeable in the real vs fake AJ1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 image above how the fake shoes have their letters looking too thin compared to the authentic shoes’.

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.

Since at the previous step of the guide on how to authenticate Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0 shoes we were talking about the text on the Air Jordan classic logo, now we are going to talk about the same logo’s wings.

The authentic Air Jordan 1s must have the same amount of space between their wings on both sides of the logo, and the most common flaw on the fake shoes is that they have their wings improperly spaced between.

Looking at the reference real vs fake Shattered Backboard 3.0 image above, we have noticed how the fake Air Jordan 1s have their positioned with too much space between.

On the other hand, the authentic Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0s have their wings placed so as to have a smaller amount of empty space between, unlike the fake shoes.

We’d like to say it again, and keep ind mind that the legit AJ1s must have the same amount of space between their wings synchronically on both sides of the logo.
