Then you are on the right track! In this article, we have put together a comprehensive guide that would help you tell real vs fake Nike FOG 1.
This is the most detailed guide that you will find on how to spot the fake Nike Fear Of God 1 sneakers.
We are saying that because we’ve put twelve ways that are easy to understand in order for you to know how to spot the fake Nike FOG 1 sneakers.
With all of this being said, now it is the time for us to jump into the proper real vs fake Nike FOG 1 legit check guide.
We would like to mention the fact that the most efficient ways to spot the fake Nike FOG 1 sneakers are to firstly check the corners of the blue rectangle on the midsole, the shape from the rear side of the sneakers and the distance from the lace holes to the outer cage.
As our first step on how to spot fake Nike Fear Of God 1, we’ve pointed out the fact that replica pairs have this part on the side of the shoe too curved. In order to understand this better, please have a look at the picture below:
We’ve placed the curved lines and the hand emojis in order for it to be easy to understand.
Since you’ve had a look at the picture, we’d like mentioning again how the fake midsole is over curved, and on the other hand, the authentic Nike Fear Of God 1 midsole is less curvy and arched.
Even if the first step was about the midsole arching, we’ve still got some more to say about the midsole.
In case you haven’t noticed, there is some printed text on the midsole on the middle side of the Nike Fear Of God 1. Let’s analyze the real vs fake Nike FOG 1 images and spot the differences.
The text that’s next to the blue rectangle has a small difference in the replica Fear of God 1 Nike.
As you may see, the fake text is smaller than the legit one, and besides, it isn’t printed in as good as the authentic Nike FOG 1, which makes it all look too thick on the replica Nikes.
There is a big difference from the authentic Nike x Fer Of God 1’s to the fake pairs on the laces, but to be more exact, the difference is the distance from the outer cage to the lace holes.
Look at the real vs fake Nike FOG 1 picture below to understand this better:
As you can see, we have pointed out with the green line for the authentic pair and with the red line for the fake Nike x FOG 1.
Since the red line is longer than the green one, it means that the distance from the outer cage to the lace hole itself is too big on the replica Nike x Fear Of God 1.
This is a simple spot to look at, and by Swoosh, we refer to Nike’s logo that can be found on the side of the Nike x Fear Of God 1.
Let’s take a look at the Nike FOG 1 fake vs real comparison:
The problem with the replica Swoosh is that it is too long in width and it is also a lot thinner than the Nike Swoosh logo met on the legit Nike Fear Of God 1 sneakers.
You can easily observe the thickness problem by looking in the bottom left corner of the Nike Swoosh logo.
Just a simple but also a really important spot is on how the stitches look like on the Nike x FOG 1.
Basically, the replica pairs have these lines, that are located in the front of the shoe, too arched and curved.
As you can observe, the authentic Nike Fear Of God 1 stitching on the front part of the shoe is flat and straight, while the replica Nike FOG 1 is really arched and completely different.
Flipping the sneakers to the rear side, you can notice how the replica Nike FOG 1 is really fat at the bottom side, and how the authentic pair is thinner.
This is an easy flaw you can spot on the fake Fear Of God FOG Nike 1 pair with the naked-eye.
An authentic Fear Of God 1 Nike pair will never be this wide from the rearview.
As we already were on the rear side of the sneakers, we should also analyze the “FEAR OF GOD” text on the heel.
The same problem from the text on the midsole, the replica Fear Of God 1 Nike is too thick and it has the same lack of quality.
We have pointed out especially on the letter “O” in the “GOD” text because the replica Nike FOG 1 manufacturers usually flaw it, and it is the most visible in this letter.
As for the eighth step of the real vs fake Nike FOG 1 guide, we are back to the midsole, you’ll see the blue rectangle. Let’s take a look at the comparison real vs fake Nike FOG 1 picture:
As you can see, the fake Nike x Fear Of God 1’s corners on the box are just way too arched and rounded.
On the other hand, the authentic Nike FOG 1 rectangle on the midsole is looking boxier and less curvy than the one met on the replica sneakers.
For the 9th step of our Nike x Fear Of God 1 legit check guide, we have the zippers that can be found on the rear side of the sneakers.
Visible in the pictures above, the replica zippers are way too shiny.
There are two zippers: one says “FEAR OF GOD” and the other one says “NIKE”, and yes, the same flaw applies to both of the zippers.
Flipping the shoes upside down, we notice, of course, the sole. Really evident, it is the blue part of the sole:
The main problem with the replica sole is that its nuance of blue is way too light.
The legit Nike x Fear Of God 1 sole has a darker blue colour and this is a flaw that can be spot with easily on the unworn pairs or on the pairs that have been just tried on and didn’t wear out too much.
Going into the Nike Fear Of God 1 sneakers, we can notice the text that’s inside the tongues.
The counterfeit Nike x Fear Of God 1 pairs have the blue box coloured and saturated way too blue, meaning that it is too light.
Besides the blue box, the “M11” / “W12.5” text is less visible and it looks sort of scratched and worn out and too wide on the replica pair.
Going even deeper inside the Fear Of God 1 Nikes, we have the insole, which has one main flaw.
Genuinely, the replica FOG 1 Nikes have the text printed on the box in the insole too wide, also less shiny, and too small in size.
If you are wondering, yes, there is also one small flaw in the packaging.
The only difference on the fake box label is that the “NIKE AIR FEAR OF GOD 1” text is placed too much to the right, as it is too far from the left edge of the box label.
We understand how it might be difficult for you to spot some of these differences without having a fake and real pair next to each other.
