Learn how to spot fake Nike Air Flightposite Exposed YOH's with this detailed 21 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

4. Box Label

Nike retail boxes feature a label on one side detailing barcode, style name, size, color, country of manufacture and a style number. The style number is usually 9 digits long, the first 6 digits represent the style and the last 3 digits represent the colourway. Check that this style number matches the one located inside the shoe and on the sales receipt. Tip 1: Do a Google image search for "Nike"+"style number" to check the colourway. Tip 2: scan the barcode (even a photo of one) with a barcode scanner app, the exact product including size should be correct.

9. Lace Hole

Nike Air Flightposite's have a top lace hole which is plastic. Check the stitching that follows around this lace hole is neat and tight and follows the circle perfectly.

12. Lace Tips

The lace tips of Nike Air Flightposite YOH's are metal caps with very fine engraved lines. Check the quality of the engraving. Also take this opportunity to check the laces themselves. They are tubular woven laces made up of the YOH colours.

17. Insole Seal

Once the sockliner insert is removed you can see the insole and how it is fused onto the Upper. Check that the fusing is neat and even. Check that there is a small hole/window at the heel that lets light through.
