Please check this guide first, before you ask if a website is legit. We can eliminate many repeat questions by doing so. I will try and keep this updated as much as I can. Feel free to post any additional websites and I'll try and add them ASAP after verifying the authenticity.
Although the websites on this list appear to be authentic, Nike Talk cannot guarantee the legitimacy or service of all the sites listed. Please report any dead links or problems.
Websites which contain FULL size runs of hard to get sneakers and/or prices which seem to good to be true are usually a sign of a FAKES-selling website. STAY AWAY and BE CAUTIOUS! Websites which sell FAKE sneakers/merchandise will NOT be tolerated and will be taken down immediately! Anyone promoting fraudulent websites will also be BANNED!
**In addition, there has been an ongoing debate with early-release sites such as Air Randy, Slamdunkspace, MarqueeSole, MentalKicks and VMVinc. Many will vouch for these sites as being authentic, but others claim that these sites sell high quality fakes, b-grades or after market scraps. Whatever the case may be, PLEASE USE THESE SITES WITH EXTREME CAUTION.The sites will guarantee 100% authentic shoes, but there's still no way to be sure. Please check out the ongoing discussion here: Early Jordan Release INFO. Its time everyone knows.
