If you are here to learn how to spot fake Nike Mars Yard sneakers, you are in the right place.
We have prepared this guide on how to check the real vs fake Nike Mars Yard sneakers with just ten simple spots to look at for it to be easier when you authenticate these sneakers.
It is worth mentioning that we are going to refer to the Nike Mars Yard Archlight sneakers in the simple form of Nike Mars Yard.
Now that you know what we’re talking about, let’s get you to the proper real vs fake Nike Mars Yard sneakers.
The quickest way to spot fake Nike Mars Yard 2.0 sneakers is to inspect the tag on the inner side of the tongue. Every time on the fake sneakers, this tag is flawed in terms of quality, especially on the thickness and the placement of the text.
As we said previously, we consider the tongue tag of the Nike Mars Yard 2.0 sneakers being the most reliable spot to inspect in order to spot the fake Nike Mars Yard sneakers.
As you can see in the fake vs real Nike Mars Yard image above, the “Tom Sachs” text at the top of the tongue tag looks a lot thicker on the fake sneakers than the one on the legit shoes.
Then, the “TS” print below the “Tom Sachs” text appears to be a lot thicker and boxier than the text on the legit Nike Mars Yard sneakers.
In fact, the letter “T” is placed a lot lower than the letter “S” on the fake Nike Mars Yard sneakers.
Then, the “100” print on the right side of the tongue tag looks, again, thicker than the text on the legit sneakers, and not only that, but it even seems to be placed wavily, while the legit text is placed on a straight line.
Lastly here, the “QUALITY” text on the bottom side of the tongue tag appears to be a lot thicker on the fake sneakers than the text on the legit pair.
For the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Nike Mars Yard sneakers, we will have to stay still inside the sneakers, but this time, moving a bit lower on the insole, we have to look at the size tag.
As you can see in the fake vs real Nike Mars Yard image above, the “MADE IN CHINA” and the “FABRIQUE EN CHINE” prints on the fake Nike Mars Yard 2.0 sneakers appear to be a lot thinner than the ones on the legit sneakers, and that’s visible even on the “AA2261-100” ID code.
Also, you can see how the letter first two letters in the “FABRIQUE” text on he fake Nike Mars Yard’s size tag are placed further away from the rest f the letters, and that’s something you’ll never see on the authentic Nike Mars Yard pairs.
For the third step fo the guide on how to spot the fake Nike Mars Yard sneakers, you’ll have to go to the rear side of the shoes and inspect how does the rear tab look like.
As you can see in the real vs fake Nike Mars Yard image above, the counterfeit sneakers’ rear tab appears to be differently coloured than the tab of the legit sneakers.
Most commonly, the fake Nike Mars Yard sneakers have their tab coloured almost correct but the difference is that the fake shoes have a darker nuance than the nuance of the authentic Nike Mars Yard sneakers, visible as in the Nike Mars Yard fake vs real image above.
For the fourth step of the real vs fake Nike Mars Yard guide, we are going to move on the side of the Nike Mars Yard sneakers and inspect the Nike Swoosh logo.
In the fake vs real Nike Mars Yard image above, we have pointed out how on the fake sneakers, the Nike Swoosh logo is noticeably placed a lot lower than the Swoosh logo on the legit sneakers.
For the fifth and the last step of the fake vs real Nike Mars Yard guide, we are going to move to the front area of the sneakers and inspect the toe box.
Most of the time, the fake toe box area on the NikeCraft Mars Yard’s sneakers is either too big (over-inflated) or too small, and less curvy than it has to be.
In this case, the fake NikeCraft Mars Yard’s toe box appears to be a lot curvier than it has to be on the authentic pairs.
