Today, we’ll teach you how to spot fake Nike x Clot Air Force 1s.

This guide works for all colorways.

Let’s begin.

How to spot fake Clot Air Force 1

The quickest method to identify counterfeit Clot Air Force 1 is to examine the details on the back of the shoes.

Fake sneakers consistently exhibit discrepancies in comparison to the genuine details.

1. Back

  • Authentic:
    1. “NIKE” text is appropriately sized and has consistent font-weight across all areas of the shoes.
    2. Nike Swoosh logo is proportionate and positioned at a correct distance from the “NIKE” text, with a less curvy appearance.
    3. Letters in the “AIR” text are thinner.
  • Fake:
    1. “NIKE” text appears too thick and large.
    2. Leftmost side of the Nike Swoosh logo is too curvy and too close to the “NIKE” text.
    3. Letters “A” and “R” in the “AIR” text are overly thick.
