Are these a legit pair?
Production dates end in October.
Insole had red serial number stamps.
No QC serial number stamp on box lid underside.
Box matched up in size with my retail bought pair bred 11s
Patent leather was cut lower on this pair than my retail pair, qc issue?
These are Authentic
Does it matter if the retail price is glued onto the box and doesn't flap out? I know some of the black Jordan boxes have retail prices you can pull off.
the label on the box is a peel back sticker. all nikes sold in US has the retail price tag hanging without sticking to the box. not sure about europe, but shoes sold in Asia does not have the price tag.
if the retail price tag is sticked to the box, usually they are fakes unless the previous owner for whatever reason decides to peel the back and stick them.
Ok thanks, it might of been the owner peeling it back and sticking to box because it's got the dotted lines for the peeling that feel raised. I noticed this pair had the size 11.5 stickers on the insole so it might be a US pair too which adds up.
Here are more pics of the retail bought pair on the LEFT and recently reseller bought pair on the RIGHT. Two things that stick out to me are the Red XI covers are different shades and the plastic shoe horn of the resellers is a tad smaller and darker. But the shoe itself is really close to the retail. He claims they are 100% authentic when I bought it off him and he let me pickup from his condo so I know where he lives.
Ether the guy is being really defensive because they are real or a douche but he's on edge about me asking him to hold tight after a legit check here. More comments soon would be appreciated. Also Timmy of your reading this pls comment lol.
There should be no difference in the plastic XI sleeve or the inserts on legit pairs. My best guess is dudes trying to get over here with the newest fakes..Does the jumpman logo on the bottom of the suspected fakes look darker and more visible than the RD pair you have? Snap shots of the sole logos and good close ups of the JUMPMAN JORDAN logos...My guts telling me these are the new run of fakes based on stuck box label, noticeable shade differences in XI sleeves, no stamps etc.
Here it is Timmy,
Left retail right reseller
Hmmm.. I expected to see a difference in the labels..Usually the fakes have a really skinny jumpman..These new pix look consistent with a legit pair, but dosent explain the difference in shades of the plastic sleeves etc.. Im on the fence here, i think they may be ok by my eye test, but there are enough inconsistencies over all that I would probably pass or request a refund for a pair with less question...Hold tight and wait for a few other opinions.
Refund is out the window, he's not a guy willing to work with me on this and said its final sale. He did say they are 100% legit and probably doesn't want to deal with anything after the fact. Doesn't really raise a red flag for me here on his non refund attitude but the shoes look real to me and nothing at all stands out about the shoe itself that calls it out as fake. I pulled the insole and it does have a serial number too just like the retail pair. I remember checkin out an early release pair in my hand that didn't have the serial number stamped under the insole.
given that both pair are worn, the shades of the red on the outsole doesn't look right to me. the reseller pair has a lighter shade. also the CF plate near the heel on the reseller pair comes in further than the retail pair. other than that the shoes look pretty darn good. did you check the production label to see if they were from the same factory?
also don't forget to compare the paper inside the box.
noticed in the sole pic there's some light source coming through on the right pair making it have a different shade.
we've all seen way to many fakes now, gettin harder to tell what's legit cuz we think everything's fake
