I just picked up a pair of gym red 1's on release day via the sneakers app and pulled mine out to compare to yours. Yours look good. The materials are correct, the shape and stitching looks good and the logos seem right. Just to be sure can you post a pic of the inside of the top lid of the box and a pic of the NA logo on the tongue tag ? Again, these look authentic, I just want to be positive they are because the J 1 fakes they make nowadays are pretty good and close to the real thing.

Thanks for reply Greg.
No doubt about the box. I know is authentic.
A smart seller can use an original box to sell a fake pair of shoes.
Here are more photos of shoes.

Thanks for posting more pics. Yeah these look good imo. As far as the box, it didn't have the " suggested retail " price tab on the end of the box label, did it ? Like this here

Thank you so much Greg :smile:
Anytime bud glad to help out.

So basically the sticker & box label thing goes like this, if they are overseas pairs they'll have the sticker that your insoles have and the absence of the suggested retail tab on the box label. If they are a pair sold in the states they should have a size sticker on the insoles and the suggested retail tab. If you see a pair that has size stickers on the insoles and no suggested retail tab on the box label, they're most likely fake. Or the reverse with the suggested retail tab on the box label and the sticker you have on the insoles.

How about the QR barcode in tag size?
The pair in this thread does not have a QR code in the size tag, but authentic pairs can come with a QR code in the tag instead of the barcode. Nike seems to be rolling this out slowly so some pairs will get the normal tag while others get a tag with a QR code.

Good point and I've also noticed this which almost adds a little more confusion to legit checking shoes considering some may have a tag with the QR code and some may not with both styles coming direct from authorized retail locations.
So whether the authentic..the qr code or classic barcode? Or both of it..

Yes, an authentic Jordan 1 Gym Red can have a regular barcode or it can have a QR Code. I already said this before.

There appears to be three different types of authentic size tags from what I have seen. I will use the Jordan 1 Travis Scott as an example because I know a decent amount about that sneaker.

These tags are all from pairs which I have looked at and consider to be Authentic:
Regular size tag with bar code:
Authentic Sz tag 1.jpeg


QR tag:
Authentic Sz tag 2.jpg


QR tag with 'Fabricado Na China' added at bottom:
Authentic Sz tag 3.jpg




Using the size tags to authenticate sneakers is not very reliable in my opinion. There are some things to look for that may help authenticating sneakers, but they are not easily spotted. Fakes have replicated all the three different types of tags already, as shown below. The QR code in fake tags does work, you can read them from your screen normally.

These tags are all from Fake pairs:
Fake Regular size tag with bar code:
Fake Sz tag 1.jpeg


Fake QR tag:
Fake Sz tag 2.jpg


Fake QR tag with 'Fabricado Na China' added at bottom:
Fake Sz tag 3.jpeg


These pairs have all been looked at by me and I consider them to be authentic.
Images for the authentic pair with a QR code can be found here:
