Real vs. Fake Air Jordan 11 72-10
1. Patent Leather Cut: You will notice on the fake pair of Jordan 11 ’72-10′, the cut of the patent leather is a bit higher and closer to the Jumpman.
2. Toe Box Shape: As you can see, the fake pair is much more bulkier than the real while the authentic will be more slimmed down.
3. Outsole Coloring: The fake pair will feature a thicker coating, in other terms, the outsole is more ‘milky’. You won’t be able to see the outsole as much, nor the Jumpman.
4. The Box: There are many different ways you can tell that a pair of shoes are fake from the box. For example the actual shape or if they are damaged, but in this scenario it shows us by the box label. The suggested retail price font is a lot thicker and bolder compared to the authentics as well as the Jordan.com and actual color description.
Here is a short video going over what you should look out for when purchasing a real pair of the ’72-10′ Air Jordan 11. Some of the flaws/points you should look out for that is covered in this video is:
Some flaws I've seen on several of the 72-10 out on the market now 1. Crown cap on back should be pointed 2. Ball must line up with the 2-3 3. Double stitched on toe cap 4. If your toe cap is really smooth they're really fake 5. Lace tips should say 72 and 10 respectively 6. And most importantly ,insole size should correspond to the size of the shoe . Color of the bottom of the insole doesn't matter , as long as it's a neutral form of black or grey. Watch out and be safe
