The recently launched Nike Off White Air Jordan 1 sneakers in all white are no new news to sneaker fans. Today, let’s take a look at how we can differentiate a pair of original Nike Off White Air Jordan 1 sneakers in all white to a pair of replica. This is not a difficult feat at all – the secrets simply lie in looking at various details on the shoes.
Point 2: Nike Swoosh. The stitching on the shoe’s Nike Swoosh should be in a sky blue shade, as seen in picture (left) above. The stitching should also be neat and dense. In contrast, the same stitching on a fake is usually in a shade of darker blue, besides being sewn on rather sloppily and more sparsely.
Point 3: Small orange leather cut. The small orange leather cut on the tail end of the shoe’s Nike Swoosh should be in a vivid and bright shade of orange. In comparison, the same leather cut on a fake Nike Off White Air Jordan 1 is usually in a dimmer colour. In addition, the leather below the orange bit should be in ivory colour. This leather is usually grey on a fake.
Point 4: Side flap material and printing of “85”. The side flap on the sneakers should be made from an elastic material; however, a fake’s is usually made from a soft element. Furthermore, the printed number “85” should be right next to the two punched holes on the flap. If you look at the fake in picture above (right), the number has considerable distance from the punched holes.
Point 5: “AIR” wording. The word “AIR” on the shoe’s side sole should be neat, straight and matte. On a fake Nike Off White Air Jordan 1, this word may be slightly tilted and fuzzy looking.
Point 6: Shoe sole. The sole of an original should be in a bright white colour. On a fake, it is usually in grey as seen in picture above (bottom).
