This video describes the comparison between a genuine Nike Air Jordan 1 sneaker and a counterfeit one.

When shopping for real Nike shoes you should expect to pay real Nike prices. If you find a rare Air Jordan or a unique color at a price that is too good to be true… then it IS too good to be true. Low prices and beat up boxes are your first clue that you have a fake, counterfeit, or illegally smuggled-in B-grade Nike shoe.

To spot the fake Air Jordan 1 pair, you will need to closely inspect the text on the tongue tag. If the text is unclear, wavy (slanted) or too thin, then you’re looking at a fake — have a look at our fake vs real visual comparison below. Besides, inspect the Air Jordan logo for any inconsistency such as: overlapping elements, too much space between elements, uneven letters.

That’s the story in a nutshell. Naturally, the things we’re pointing out are easier to follow if you see our head-to-head real and fake comparisons. Scroll down below to see them.
When the Air Jordan 1 arrived in ’85, it was with rule-breaking bravado. The banned black-red colorway violated the league’s uniform policy and resulted in a $5,000 fine from the NBA each time Michael Jordan wore sneakers. Thus the legacy began. Jordan’s rookie campaign in 1984-85 finished with His Airness averaging 28.2 points per game to earn All-Star and Rookie of the Year honors.

Stitching is a really crucial part to knowing if your Air Jordan 1 pair is real or fake. You can look and see if the stitching is clean and symmetrical on both shoes, not just one shoe. Real stitching should glow under a blacklight, and when you look at the stitching there should be a clean and consistent gap between each stitch. You want to know your colorways and which stitching color should be there and shouldn’t be there to indicate which is real or fake.

Studying the real Air Jordan and the fake Air Jordan side-by-side, you can see the factory making copies did a nice job on the logo. The artwork on the fake shoe is correct, but the real Jordan 1 logo is still embossed a little deeper into the leather. In this case, it’s hard to tell the difference until you look at the pattern of the cut parts. The real Nike does not have any stitching guides to help the stitchers locate the panels during assembly. The red logo panel of the fake Nike is loaded with these little assembly guides. These assembly guides are not a sign of poor shoemaking and are very common, just not on the real Air Jordan.
