WORLDWIDE SHIPPING | FREE SHIPPING ON ORDERS OVER $15
Fake Jordan sites have sprung up all over the web in recent years.
While their products are “knock offs”, their techniques have come a long way. A number of manufacturers are able to create  replica  sneakers that look almost identical to the real version.
There’s a ton of ways to find out if your Jordan 11s are real or fake – we’ve compiled them all into this post .
NOTE: The easiest way to tell is buy them direct from a Jordan / Nike retailer, not China.
Jordan’s are a beautifully packaged sneaker. There’s a number of things you can check before even looking at the sneakers:
On a deeper note, you can even dig a lot of information by looking at the sticker on the outside of the box:
Located inside the shoe is a label containing the same information that is printed on the box label. It will include the year and country of manufacture, the style and name of the shoe.
It’s amazing how knock offs can miss obvious details, like spelling!
Sometimes, a simple Google search as to when that version of the sneaker was created can help:
How the box’s label is attached can also be an indicator:
The iconic Michael Jordan “Jumpman” logo is an easy test as well:
Lift up the tongue of the shoe and check the label on the underside:
The 11s will also have a printed logo of the jump man on the insole.
The location of the logo tag is another indicator of authentic Air Jordan 11.
Another clue that the Nike Air Jordan 11s are not be authentic may be a unique color combination:
Jordan replicas tend to have outrageous colorways – this is by far the easiest giveaway.
Take a look at the patent leather detail around the shoe:
The patent leather arch around the back of the heel is shaped much differently:
Check the heel tabs located on the back of the sneaker:
Notice the stylized player number 23 in white on the black heel tab discussed above.
The back heel tab is attached to the body of the shoe by a fine line of stitching.
The Jumpman logo should be high quality and clean stiching:
The Nike Air Jordan 11s have an evenly shaped toe box with a distinctive contour:
The curvature of the sole around the back of the heel is unique and forms a distinct V-shape.
Notice the details about the carbon fiber outsole.
All stitching on the shoe, inside and out, should be neat and even.
To be one hundred percent positive about the authenticity of the shoes when purchasing Nike Air Jordan 11s, the safest bet is to buy directly from the manufacturer.

I sure learnt something new today. I honestly appreciate your information, very interesting. What caught my attention is “The nine digit style number should match the style number found on the outside of the shoe box”. Now I know AIR JORDON is perfect, absolutely worth what I am paying. Thanks valuable information.
As a consumer, this is good information when it comes to buying original Jordans. I am sure there are a lot of knock offs that do the best job they can fool people. I love the pictures included in this posting.
A good tutorial for those who are wanting to know what to look for between a fake and real Jordans. I know that there are many out there who pray on others.
That is a long list of things to look for! Then again, I will be spending my hard earned cash for them, 2018 Mens Air Jordan 11 White Snakeskin Shoes For Sale so I might as well make sure I’m not getting scammed. Why is it so hard to track down the places where them fakes are made anyway?
This is very neat! It is really hard sometimes to differentiate between the real deal and the fake ones.
Yeah I got ripped off by some joker selling them out of their trunk back in the day. I was young and foolish. Never again!…I hope.
Adding to this, the legitimate aj11 2009 up has 5 pinholes, it is a blackdot on the egg shape in the sole.
Well unfortunately China sells a lot of counterfeit goods. If I want authentic, I will go straight to the manufacturer or authorized retail outlet. It’s just too much money to be playing games.
I know a guy who used to sell fake Jordans. Thing is, unless one has a keen eye and experience on what to look for, most people really don’t even know what’s real or fake. Heck, some of these retail stores might be selling us fakes – especially the smaller less regulated stores. I’m sure the major retailers are more regulated. But the smaller ones, gotta watch out for those!
25 five ways?! Wow! this is a great list of warning signals, but on flipside it’s side that us consumers have to even be concerned with getting duped like this. Oh well…guess that’s just the world we live in.
Great alert to the public! I woulda surely got got! without any of this info. Now I feel much wiser and informed. Thanks!
I never even thought about checking the quality of the box. But come to think about it, there are so many little intricate details on the box that if you know what to look for you could really catch some tell tale signs.
Yes, that’s true. Because they box has all the certification and barcodes necessary for proper manufacturing facilities.
Wow I’ll bet all these fake Jordans are really cutting into Michael Jordan’s pockets, just like the music industry with bootleg recording. Oh well, guess they’ll have to figure out better ways to police this coz I really don’t think no one cares about taking money out of their already fat pockets.
Man…feels like i have to become like some sorta consumer detective this day just to but stuff. This is getting ridiculous!

Lots of good, and specific tips here. I always check the stitching to make sure it ” looks legit” but the specifics of what to look out for are awesome.
It’s too many to familiarize but i think if you get 2 or 3 major ones then it would be easier. I think you can also tell by their prices, couldn’t we?
No, Because The Fake Jordans Are Sold As The Same Price For the Real Ones! A Lot Of People Do That As Well! 2018 Mens Air Jordan 11 Retro Platinum Tint/Sail-University Red so you Better Becareful.
My son wants some new Jordans. I always warned him about deals – especially on the internet – that might be too good to be true. I will definitely show him this page. Thanks for the tips!
Fake Jordans and other brand names have been a growing problem for quite some time now. Many of the same underpaid workers that make the real Jordans and other mainstream merchandise, are selling counterfeit versions under the table. It’s a vicious cycle!
I know a few people who knowingly buy fakes all the time and they don’t give a rats booty just as long as people can’t tell they are rockin fakes. And really, no one really does with them, guess if they were in highschool or something then they would have more scrutiny. But they are older and people don’t really toughly examine their shoes upclose and personal.
25 ways? This is an helluva checklist! I guess those fakers are probably now at work coming up with some more tricks up their sleeves to pull off the fakes.
I’m tired of being ripped off. I will spread your article like wildfire across the web.
This is a great public service article. Thanks Ryan for taking the time to write this. Most of these pointers I would have never even thought of.
Them black on blacks is tight! Man I’m gettin those when I get paid.
Just got Jordan 11 legend blues, but the color of the sole is not blue, it’s a faded grayish bluish.
Now my husband knows how I feelz about my handbags!
yeah i just bought my man some shoes for Christmas but me being broke had to find them for cheap, this sight helped me with the confirmation that they are real. I mean $325 dollar shoes for $115, you’d think it would be a rip off but i was proven wrong.
New Kids Air Jordan 13 Retro Black Pink White Shoes are these fake?
So if the box number and number in the shoe match the shoes are real?
