    I know this is an older post, but for those still looking to score on the Carmines, hopefully these links and tips will help.  These are the main things that are giveaways to me with the Carmines:

    1. Air socket should be clear, not red (dead giveaway in very first picture).
    2. Jumpman logo across the laces is usually smaller on the replicas - logo's feet should be close to or touching sides if authentic.
    3. Jumpman logo on the back of the shoe should be close to the sole and the Jumpan's feet should be outside of "A" and "R" of "AIR".
    4. Stitching around red triangle (at mid foot of laces) should come to a point, not a curve.
    5. Quality of the tongue and stitching is always a giveaway... if in hand, pull the tongue up to test durability and look inside.
    6. In general, the toe-box on some replica VIs is too round, makes shoe look bulky.

    Fortunately and unfortunately, they "replica" producers did a "good job" with these fakes... an online seller got me for a pair too when I didn't ask enough questions...SMH
