Learn how to spot fake Adidas NMD Runner's with this detailed 28 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.
Adidas sneakers come in a sturdy retail box, usually featuring the Trefoil logo on the lid and side of the box as well as the trademarked 3 stripes. Color and style of boxes can vary according to style and year. Check the box carefully for any errors in brand logos, alignment, spelling and overall finish quality. There should be no cracking or flaking of the print along the edges of the box. Remember real shoe boxes can accompany fake shoes.
Adidas NMD Runner's have 3 clear matt stretch TPU stripes on the side. Check that the texture of the upper fabric shows through the stripes clearly. Make sure the stripes themselves seem pressed into the upper and that they are not lifting off anywhere.
Inside the shoe, at the forefoot, you will see a short area of stitching joining the insole to the upper. Make sure the stitching is tight, neat and evenly spaced.
