The Nike x Travis Scott collaboration is one of the most notorious ones in the sneaker industry.
And then, the Cactus Jack Air Max 1s is yet another pair that amazed people with the classic reverse-Swoosh that’s seen on Travis’ sneakers, just like on his famous Air Jordan 1s.
In this guide, we’re going to teach you how to tell fake Air Max 1 x Travis Scott.
By the end of this read, you’ll know how to differentiate the real Nike from the fake.
Note: Do not confuse the Travis Scott Air Max 1 with the Travis Scott Air Max 270.
They are two different pairs. For now, we’ll focus on the Air Max 1s.
To spot fake Travis Scott Air Max 1, look at the size tag and at the stitching all over the shoes. The size tag is always flawed on fakes because the text is often too thick.
The stitching is also inconsistent on fakes, whereas the consistency is always the same on the real pairs.
However, this is just the short answer.
Keep reading for the detailed comparisons and explanations.
Finding it too hard? Have our experts legit check your Travis Scotts:
The genuine stitching is thicker and the threads are longer on the fake pair.
The authentic Air Max 1s have their threads thicker and longer than the one on the fake pair.
The real pair is quite the opposite: it is inflated more, as it has a bulkier and thicker look than the look of the toe box.
A quick mention:
If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.
The real “®” is so close to the “NIKE” text that they almost make contact.
The very same inscription on the real pair’s label glued to the box is thinner.
