Official how to spot a fake thread
 

 
Just thought it'd be useful to have an official thread for this.
Feel free to drop knowledge on spotting fakes. list dodgy websites etc.
EACH ONE TEACH ONE

Tip #1: (Use Common sense) If the price is too good to be true, it's fake.

Use common sense, if you see a pair of Jordan XI Black/White on a site selling for $89.99 and they have sizes 8-13 in stock. Gotta be fake, there's no store on earth that are even selling real Jordan XI's in a full size stock run from 8-13, let alone for a price of $89.99 when box price on the originals was $125 and/or $150 for the retros

This should always be the first rule you use when buying sneakers...IMO

Tip #2: pay attention to the overall SHAPE OF THE f**kING SHOE, can't stress this enough, if that s**t looks off from pics of the shoe that sneakerblogs put up online, then 9/10 it's fake, you have to pay attention to detail when it comes to a shoe you really, really want, check it out from top to bottom, so when you try to cop from a reseller, you can know if some s**t is off.

well not necessarily, sneakerblogs usually post pictures of samples, which turn out sometimes different from the actual released shoe.

A great site to see a shoe in detailed pics is kixnthecity.com

Experience will tell you... If a shoe has colors that don't exist. If the shoe doesn't come with an official looking box. But most of all... Stick to tip #1 and you'll be straight.

I got a question. I can't ever seem to catch the kicks when the get released so I'm looking on ebay and see the ones i want but then I see the shoebox and be like naaaaah. Its the Jordan box that has the grey lid with the lines in. I see the folks pushin those at the corner store so then when i see it on ebay I just keep it moving. Some times its hard to tell.

So 1. Am i right to avoid anything with that jordan shoe box?
& 2. what sites do i need to get to so that i can be one of the buyers/wearers before the buyer/resellers get ahold of them?
