    I'm not sure how much experience your cousins have but I'm going to say they legit. Patent leather looks right, PL height looks good, stitching and sheen or reflection looks smooth like glass as it should. The outsoles look correct as far as color and Jumpman placement as well as the exposed carbon fiber. Toe caps look good and the heel area looks legit as well. The 23 looks good and is centered nicely so again, I'm going to say legit here. Just to be sure can you pull the insoles and take a picture of the backside of them as well as the inside of the shoe while the insoles are removed ? I'd also like to see the size tag on the inside of the shoe so I can check the style code and production dates and to be sure the tag as a whole looks correct.

    Anytime man and thanks for reposting more pics. Yeah bro, these still look legit imo. The backside of the insoles look good as well as the inside of the shoe, the tag on the inside of the tongue and the sizing tag all look correct to me. That in combination with the other pictures you provided I'd say you have an authentic pair of Bred 11's.

    By the way, what was it that your cousins saw that made them think these were not authentic ?

    The plastic 11 cover that goes over the shoes supposedly was lighter compared to his and they looked way too small to be a size 9. He compared them to his ds size 9 and mines were shorter by a little bit

    I'd be shocked if these were fake. Even the ankle collars are the correct thickness & shape along with everything else I previously mentioned. I own a pair of 2012 bred 11's and I know they're authentic. They're also a size 10.5 so there will be very subtle differences between mine & yours like the numbers on the underside of the insole. Yours do however have a ton of similarities right down to the red thread under the white threading on the inside of the shoe when the insole is removed. Same glue pattern, very similar markings on the underside of the insole with the top markings even being a bit more puffy than the bottom markings.

    The guy I bought them from supposedly worked at Nike. I believe they're real cause you made some really good points. Your insoles look just like mine but smaller. If you believe they are authentic I will take your word cause you certainly know a lot about Jordan's. Thank you man! I really needed this help.

    As far as I remember the plastic cover looks good too and I don't see anything that raises any red flags. I haven't had my bred's in their original shoe box since I started using drop front cases about a year ago and all my shoe boxes are now being stored in my basement in the boxes my drop fronts came in otherwise I'd pull it to make a direct comparison.

    I on the fence with this one..I believe these may be the newer best fakes out right now.. 1- General shape does appear off. The 1st thing I noticed was they appeared too short. 2- Colors of reds look off. Go outside and snap shots under daylight because this may be just the camera. This red looks more varsity in color in my opinion. 3- Bought from a dude who supposedly works for Nike, Footlocker, yada yada. So what? Sellers say this type of thing for peace of mind, to lul you into a bad deal, other than that bc you work for whoever has no real value. 4- The price is just where it shouldn't be. Just cheap enough for the seller to make about $100 on a fake he bought for $150. But also just right for a potential buyer to not want to miss out on a good deal.
    Did they come with the tissue paper, if so post pix. Also post pix of the inside of the inserts and the jumpman logo on the inserts. Most good fakes still come with bad printed tissue paper or none bc the sellers know this is an easy tell. Collars and things like that have been corrected for some time now on new fakes. We have to remember they have had like 60 different runs of updated fakes for this shoe. From many various factories etc. Some are better than others. Are there any QC stamps/ stickers anywhere on the box or inside the shoes?
    Where did you buy them, EBay? Post the link so we can look into the seller as well maybe..Idk- maybe it's just me, but I'm not sold on this pair yet.

    You make interesting points and now have me 2nd guessing my original comments. I know there are good fakes out there and after looking over all his pics I truly believed these were authentic. I'll wait to see if he reposts with the pics you requested to see what they show and what you thinK after seeing them. If these are fake they're the best ones I've seen to date. All the fakes I e seen always end up getting something fairly obvious wrong and it's usually more than one area these factories miss. I really hope these aren't fake because I was certain they weren't and will feel ridiculously stupid if they are. If they are I am going to have to reinvest more time in researching these and the current fakes.

    I don't like the carbon fiber, 23s don't look correct either

    I think you may be good here. The color definitely looks better in the new set of pics. Insert and paper look ok to me as well.

    I would pass them based on these pix. However if your cousin has a 100% known legit pair maybe do a closer comparison with his pair. Compare things like colors and shape of the logos, stitching, etc. See if you can find anything else for us to check out.
