Those are real.
There u have it
That's what the R looks like on the bottom of my left shoe... looking at a couple of my other pairs of ones, it seems the R is sharper on one shoe than the other... Not sure if they do that on purpose, or maybe one of the sole molds they are using is wearing out hah.
Thanks man! What jumps out about them to let you know they're real? And anything you've seen so far with the fakes to watch out for? I def trust your opinion, I've seen you post here for ever, just asking for my own sanity so I know what to look out for haha. Thanks again!
If I recall, that was one of the tells before. No clue if replicas have fixed it or not, but there is a triangle that forms at the bottom, the legs of the "R" touch the circle, and the entire mold is pretty sharp.
Here are my Lakers and Court Purples as an example:
I have two pairs of LAs, neither have the qr tag and they both have the 4 lines on the lace bags. My bones have the qr code and 6 lines. I think yours are real though, they look good to me.
These days, you aren’t going to find a pair of fakes that are near 1:1 but have the wrong lace bag...either everything is sloppy and clearly fake or they have paid attention to details in every respect
The shape, all the laces, looking at my pair, and the box label being correct all point to real.
I just went through all of my 1’s which are size 9 except the turbo greens. Those are 9.5 and those were the only 1(ne)’s w/ that flawed “r” and that was just on one shoe. The rest looks like urs and @coolcool . Got the TG's from finish line to. Maybe that’s 9.5 issue?
And thanks a lot to everyone else who took the time to comment on my pair! It's just like my usual luck to get a pair with some weirdness to make me question my first time using stockX.
We still on Real vs Fake talk!? Wow.
he ended the discussion until u commented
I'd be very concerned about the Air Jordan wings logo on your pair. Here are some close ups of legit pairs on lapstone's site as well as sole collector. the embossing is very detailed on the legit pairs and even outlined in purple. I'd probably get a second opinion on your pair at a sneaker boutique or consignment shop near you.
Your pair's wings logo for comparison
If your pair is fugazi, and it came from stockx... then it can only mean one thing, there's probably a bunch of fakes in their warehouses.
Interesting point... can anyone else who thought my pair was real chime in on the wings logo situation with a comparison of your authentic pairs? Thanks!
Just when I was about to rest easy haha. Ugh.
Might just be how dark my first pic was. You can see they’re painted purple when I shine a bright light on it, but without a light on it it’s a very shiny slick wet black look across the full wings logos (and the R and D are touching on one, didn’t that used to be a tell?)... It definitely seems more matte and well defined in most online pics...
Yeah the lighting was definitely the issue on your original pic. Your updated pictures look perfect. But the R on the sole is questionable. However, @marikomorose found a pair of his Turbos where his R is off too on one pair and correct on another.
I was about to say your wings logo looks hella smudged but it was the lighting. You are correct about the letters R & D need to connect. Your pair checks out, all g
How does the insole on your size 9 look? The cutout on the front portion.
might keep mine now.
on feet pics are clean. the jordan on the toe is killing em tho.
paint it white
might pick it out.
This been a summer fit.. shorts preme socks n Jordan lows
So they finally give us an Low OG 1 with decent materials ...but they just had to go shrink the swoosh and change the toe box shape from OG styling
I couldn't write this ish
