The size tag is the #1 authenticity teller, though there are 8 other authenticity tellers for the Travis Scott Jordan 6. Study them in this ultimate guide!

This is the ultimate Travis Scott Jordan 6 Olive authentication guide.

In the tutorial, you’ll find helpful explanations and real vs fake images to help you understand everything with ease.

Not the guide you’re looking for? We’ve got you covered:

For now, let’s see how to tell fake Olive Travis Scott Jordan 6s.

How to tell if Jordan 6 Travis Scott are fake

Just because the size tag helps you tell fake Jordan 6 Travis Scott, you shouldn’t stop there. Make sure to check the suede effect, rear details, and various other spots.

Let’s analyze them in this guide!

1. Size tag

  • The “SZ” text is too thin on the fake size tag.
  • The style code “CN1084-200” text is too big and thick.
  • The “UPC” text on the fake shoes is too bolded (thick) as well.
  • The date of manufacturing print on the fake shoes has a different font from the original.
  • The “MADE IN CHINA” block of text is too thick, once again.

Finding it too hard? Have our experts legit check your Travis Scotts:

2. Suede effect

The main fabric for the Travis Scott Jordan 6 Olive is suede.

You’ll find suede on all green panels, except for the pocket — which we’ll later analyse in the guide.

  • Authentic suede has to leave dark green traces upon contact.
  • Fakes always miss this effect. They either leave no traces or they’re not as concentrated as on the original.

In this real vs fake example:

  • The suede is indeed moving on the fake shoes, but not as much as on the original pair.
  • The fake shoes don’t have their suede as dark as the legit shoes’ suede after being touched.
  • The legit shoes have their suede of higher quality, moving and darkening wherever it is touched.

3. Logos

You’ll find the Nike logo on the left shoe, and the Cactus Jack (Travis Scott) logo on the right shoe.

Let’s take them one-by-one.

3.1. Left shoe – Nike AIR

  • The “NIKE” and the “A I R” texts are too thin on the fake Jordan 6s.
  • The “NIKE” and the “A I R” text look thicker and more defined on the authentic pair.

Note: The opposite can happen too meaning, that the fakes can have the “A I R” text thicker as well.

It’s best to always come back to our real vs fake images for great reference.

3.2. Right shoe – Catus Jack

  • The stitched logo can be too thick or too thin on the fake Jordan 6.
  • In this case, the letters are too thin.

Greater stitching density can be noticed on the real pair.

Hence, the authentic Travis Scott Jordan 6 has the “Cactus Jack” logo thicker.

4. Pocket color

  • The pocket color is too light on the fake shoes.
  • It isn’t the same as the authentic olive shade.

Authentic pairs have the side pocket looking a bit darker than the fake pocket.

There’s a reason why the authentic pair is called “Olive” — the pocket should be the same.

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. Tongue

  • Tongues often look too textured on the fake pairs.
  • Fake tongues tend to reflect too much light.
  • Authentic tongues are smoother and less defined.

Replica Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott manufacturers pay too much attention to other details and they forget about the quality of the tongue.

6. Perforations

  • The holes are placed too low on the fake midsole.
  • The fake holes sink into the midsole.
  • The authentic holes are placed higher. Authentic holes never make contact with the midsoles.

This flaw is never seen in authentic pairs with factory defects. This kind of issue only happens on the fake Travis Scott Jordan 6.

7. Pocket interior

  • The overall look of the Cactus Jack face logo is too thin. The lines are not strong enough.
  • Also, the stitching is not dense enough on the hair of the Cactus Jack logo.

8. Pull tab

  • The pull tab looks too curvy compared to the authentic one.
  • Also, the fake shoes have their Nike Swoosh logo too curvy as well.

Yet again, the authentic Travis Scott 6s have their Nike Swoosh less curvy than the fake shoes’ logo.

9. Box

Authentic boxes should be olive, not black or brown.

  • The fake box above is black instead of olive.
  • You may also see fakes with brown boxes. Never authentic ones!

Authentic boxes must have an olive background. No other color.

Shortlist: Authenticate your shoes in 30 seconds

  1. Size Tag Examination: Review the size tag of your sneakers, noting any inconsistencies in font and thickness. Counterfeit versions often utilize mismatched fonts and inconsistent thickness in their text.
  2. Suede Material Quality: Feel the suede material on the shoes. Genuine pairs should leave nuanced dark traces when touched.
  3. Rear Heel Logo Inspection: Assess the Nike and Cactus Jack logos on the rear heel. Often, logos on fake pairs appear either too thick or too thin.
  4. Side Pocket Color Check: Examine the color of the pocket on the shoe’s side. Counterfeit Air Jordan 6 tend to have a pocket that looks overly dark, while genuine ones feature an olive green pocket.
  5. Tongue Texture and Definition: Investigate the shoe’s tongue. Replicas often exhibit tongues that are overly defined and textured due to less attention to detail.
  6. Side Holes Placement: Observe the holes on the shoe’s side. These should not touch the midsole. Many fake pairs mistakenly connect these elements.
  7. Interior Cactus Jack Logo Examination: Examine the Cactus Jack logo inside the pocket. Fake logos often appear too thick or too thin, and the facial hair detail tends to be less dense.
  8. Pull Tab Curviness: Assess the pull tab’s curvature. Counterfeit versions often lack the appropriate arch and curve found on authentic pairs.
  9. Box Color Verification: Confirm the color of the shoebox. Genuine Air Jordan 6 Travis Scott Olive boxes should have an olive green top, while fake ones might be black or brown.
