1. Profile

Learn how to spot fake Nike Foamposite One Penny Pack with this detailed 32 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

5. Lid Logo

Nike Penny Pack QS retail boxes have 1 Penny logo on the lid which is a complex varnished and foiled print. Check that the black area of the logo is matt while the blue area is metallic and reflective. The white C is just varnished and shiny but not metallic. This is a good opportunity to have a close look at the tiger stripe pattern, make sure it is also varnished.

19. Instep Side

Look for the thin vertical join in the molded upper on the instep side of the shoe, it runs between two of the black stripes above the carbon arch support.

23. Tongue Logo

The tongue of Foamposite One's will have a Penny logo printed underneath a clear button. Make sure the printing is clear and solid. Check that the stitching around the button is tight, neat and evenly spaced.

31. Carbon Support

Nike Foamposite One's have a carbon fiber support structure in the midfoot region that runs just under the translucent outsole. The bumpy checkerboard texture of the carbon fiber can be seen when it catches the light.
