    I bought these on ebay for 400. The user got 100 percent feedback but shipping them from Hong Kong and claims its 100 percent authentic.. saying they are the Nike Japan tag

    Reasons why Im thinking they might not be real

    1) The jumpman on the shoes' tongue.. (some of the fingers look like they are cut off, I checked other photos online and they have better stitching on fingers)

    2) bottom of the shoe it looks like bad paint job on some parts

    Could someone please confirm to me if these are a legit pair or fake

    don't own 3s, so i dunno what to tell you except the outsole where you are saying it's bad paint job; they are not painted. those are colored rubber poured over different areas to form the outsole completely normal to any shoes.

    Would you think these are legit just by looking  if the paint issue is pretty normal

    I'd say fake cause stitching along the blue eyelets inner shoe shouldn't be connected all the way across the EP. Pros pls correct me if I'm wrong

    Those are fine..Your standards may be a little too high for a mass produced product..These are normal issues man, have been this way since day 1.

    Guys you have to remember Jordan is NOT a designer brand.. Just bc you paid $400 for something does not mean its quality standards increased with the resale value from that $90 shoe that was sold to FTL by JB... Its the EXACT same shoe..Your paying the mark up for hype, not quality. Get used to a small hiccups here and there, its just the way it is.

    $25 for JB to produce
    $90 from JB to FTL etc.
    $160 from FTL to resellers
    $400 to you from resellers.
    Still same $25 product in the end.
