    I bought these on ebay for a almost too good to be true price and I really need some help.
    Thanks in advance

    These are fake.
    The orange leather is wrong, it should be slightly tumbled, and it should be a lighter shade of orange. The perforations on the toe box are not cleanly cut out and they should be. The toe box shape is also a bit too boxy. The Insoles have the wrong design and the font of the size sticker is slightly off. The lines on the box label are slightly too bold in my opinion. On the back of the ankle at the top, where the leather and mesh meet, is too sloppy on the right shoe. Swoosh look slightly to wide. Lace bag and extra white laces are not correct.

    eBay seller calisnkrs sells fake Air Jordan 1's. All of them are fake, that's why his prices are better then normal.

    the seller posts the same photos of the each shattered backboard shoe he sells. the most noticeable fake part to me is the insoles. They also don't smell right.

    Yeah the fakes are getting really good. They don't get the insole design right yet, so that's an easy way to authenticate them. If you guys have an authentic pair, compare the insoles and you will see differences.

    For sheer entertainment Im following this discussion. So now, the insole is the tell. Show pics of Real, to this guys pics please. If the shoe is fake, the insole is gonna be the last thing you see before everything on the actual shoe itself.

    That insole was first thing I checked when I saw this thread, for other shoes I would not really check that, but I know they make mistakes on these. Hopefully you learn something new from this since you do help others.



    I wont put every flaw I see, but here are some on the left insole:

    This is the right insole, the photo was provided by Garret:

    I am not sure if you were following that thread, you did comment on it. Here is the link https://niketalk.com/threads/jordan-1-shattered-backboard-legit-check-please.679392/ You can see more photos on his comparison of the fakes vs his StockX pair, although his fake pair was not as good as this one.

    Leather does look a bit off and the toe box shape too. I wear an 8 and for those to be only .5 bigger, toe should still look sleak

    Toe Box comparison:

    As I mentioned before, the leather is not right, the perforations are sloppy, and the shape of the toe box is off.

    No replica sellers, to my knowledge, have gotten the leather right, but they are close. They have gotten the swoosh right. They are also very good at making the shape of the shoe correct, they got much better at getting an hourglass shape, and the toe boxes are looking more sleek in my opinion.
