Real Vs. Fake 'Shattered Backboard' Air Jordan 1

A new black/orange colorway of the Air Jordan 1 debuted last weekend and prices on the secondary market are already $450+. 

Needless to say, if you're willing to shell out the type of money on a pair of kicks you might as well do the research to ensure that you're buying an authentic pair.

In the slides above, you can find a comparison between an authentic pair of the 'Shattered Backboard' 1s and a fake pair, which utilizes a much lighter shade of orange.

Factories that are producing knock-off Jordans have become so good at their job that the only way to differentiate between pairs is by examining the precise size of the logos, the placement of the stitching, the packaging of the laces and other subtle details.

In some instances, fake receipts are even being produced which makes it even harder to distinguish between real and fake kicks, especially when buying online.
