Nike Air jordan 1 Chicago
-Real pairs DO NOT HAVE AS MUCH PADDING on the ankle collar areas as fakes do
-Real pairs have a little more soft feel around the varsity red leather areas, especially near the toeboxes than fakes do
-Real pairs have a SLIGHTLY thicker tongue than fakes do and Real pairs DO feel SLIGHTLY softer than fakes do. Fake tongues are only SLIGHTLY more stiffer than real pairs.
-Fake pairs smell more bad than real retail pairs. Serious.
-Fake pairs come unlaced and most deadstock or new in box retail real pairs are knotted
-The varsity red color on both pairs is ALMOST and I literally mean ALMOST the same looking color in person
-The color of the red Nike swoosh font on the shoe box is only SLIGHTLY different hue. the real retail pair is a LITTLE more vibrant
-Real pairs have a somewhat "stamped" in air jordan wings logo on the upper ankle side. fakes do not, they just look like a tattoo
-Fake/gm/ua/er releases have BLACK INNER SWOOSH STITCHING near size tag
However its possible REAL pairs MAY HAVE SOME INNER SWOOSH STITCHING, it may be subtle outline or red swoosh stitching
-The stars on the fakes are more bunched together and there are more of them. Real pairs are a little spread out and evenly made and less present
-Real boxes are actually slightly larger than fakes
-The back part of the swoosh is slightly lower on the Real pairs and slightly higher on the fakes in the diagonal stitching
-In the middle of the bottom sole where it says Nike swoosh for the fake pairs there are like these little L's or little L shaped type of lettering and it looks very messy compared to a real pair where its nice, neat, tightly together and uniform and even so it doesn't look like L shapes
