    These look really good, feel really good but I am unsure because of the quality of the reps nowadays.

    These are fake.
    Swoosh has a bad shape and is too thick. The leather material is off, the orange looks like it’s the wrong shade, the sail leather looks too white.

    Actually, the laces were in and pulling the ankles in a bit on the left shoe. Here are some pics with the right and left respectively next to my J1 Sports Illustrated that I bought at Footlocker. TBH, the SIs look like crap compared to. Oh, I took the stitching out of the Swoosh, so that's why it is red and not the green and white.

    I tried replicating your photo. Hopefully you can see the difference in material and the swoosh between mine and yours.

    I do see the slight nuances. I am going to cop a pair from Stock X and compare the two in hand. I am Paypal protected on these, so no worries there.
    But WOW. These shoes look SO good, feel SO good, and are even tighter stitched than some of the legit ones I got from Footlocker, &ct.

    I think the difference in swoosh shape and material between mine and yours is visible, Nike does not get the shape of the swoosh wrong. I don't think you understand how good the current fakes are. The top tier fakes use very similar materials, have very similar shape, and make minimal flaws. That's why you pay places like StockX. Most people cant tell the difference between a fake and a retail pair, even people that buy Jordan's regularly, that's why StockX has become as big as it is.


    These are some of the current top tier fakes in the market:

    I agree. The material difference is plainly visible with a legit pair to make the comparison. Photos from the internet in general aren't that reliable. Having pics from a known legit pair like you uploaded are what I needed. Thanks for you help.
    The SIs have a bigger swoosh though like the one on my SBBs.
    Die blades have to be replaced, dyes in materials may never match the previous batch exactly, and Nike does have suicide nets in place so their slave labor can't jump out windows.
    I'm not going to rock these. I can't. I am getting a pair from Stock X and will return these.
    I can not believe how good the construction quality on these is. The materials aren't cheaply feeling either. I'm just WOWed by them. WOW. Lol

    Can you compare the insoles of both shoes? If you can, take the insoles out of both pairs and compare the design, color, thickness, and the glue marks underneath the insole. I want to see how good they are.
    Also comparing the toe box size and shape would be helpful.

    I think the SBBs from StockX might be coming from overseas. They have been in transit for 2 days now. UNGH
    I can't get the inserts out of the original SBBs that I posted and I want to return them for my money back, so I don't want to destroy them.
    Here is a pick of the insole under the best lighting I could muster to convey the true color of them.

    Yeah the design is not right. The orange color looks off in that picture as well. These don’t look like the old fakes I use to see back then, but I also don’t think these are the newest batch because the new ones look better in my opinion.

    I don’t think you would really damage them by removing the insoles, they are fake anyway. It’s up to you, I think it would be better if you took them out and compared them.

    Here is mine:

    Oh, YIKES. You have one of those money sizes! $$$
    Resale falls off a cliff at size 11. The only saving grace for resale purchases. Lol

    I was definitely skeptical on the insoles. I could tell that they didn't capture the light refraction correctly in the shattered glass. That was a red flag for sure when I got them in hand.
    You can see the difference for sure compared to yours.

    Yeah, big sizes usually pay about $100 less for Jordan 1's. Only time I felt good about being a smaller size was when buying the Union Storm blue's, those are a lot more for bigger sizes.

    The insole design is a flaw that they always got wrong from what I have seen. But I haven't seen the insoles of the new batch of fakes, so I don't know if they fixed this flaw yet.

    Didn't mean to double post. I'm kinda new to this forum. Getting the hang of it functions. No way to delete images it seems.

    can you post pics of your pair when it arrives. Im curious to see if there's any glitter on the black parts and if it would pass authentication if it did have glitter.

    I know they were having issues with shoes during that time frame with the glitter coming off the black. But those were legit pairs. Did they correct that on later production?

    It can be, some shoes it will wipe of easily and others its a lot harder to get off but it always comes back. I think its bad and they still haven't fixed it because my shadows from last year already started show glitter.

    Any guess as to which one came from Stock X? Both are the right shoe.
