8. Box Construction

Adidas NMD R1 Bape Black Camos come in a sturdy retail box, make sure the lid doubles over back into the box to create structural strength. Check that the lid section which folds back into the box is attached with two small glued down tabs. Also note how the side walls, when viewed from inside the box, have a locking system that does not require any gluing. The side panels have tabs that stick right through holes cut into the side corners. Make sure the 3 Stripes which are debossed into the box can be seen from the inside as well.

15. Pull Tab

Adidas NMD R1 Bape Black Camos have long pull tab's on the heel. They will have printing which says "A Bathing Ape" with registered R on them. Make sure the typeface is correct and that the printing is solid with clear sharp edges. Check that the fabric weave is tight, neat and even.

24. Collar

Make sure the zigzag stitching along the collar ribbing is neat and even.

28. Insole Ape

The right shoe will have a Bape ape logo printed in white on the insole at the heel, make sure the printing is sharp and clear. You should be able to see the detail in the ape's nose as well as the fine registered R.
