Learn how to spot fake Nike Air Footscape's with this detailed 22 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.
Nike Air Footscape's have the word Nike embroidered into a metallic panel. Check that the high quality embroidery is neat and tight, make sure there are no loose ends. Check that the stitching is even and that the metallic panel has a highly reflective quality.
Check behind the heel, the yellow stitching that runs below the logo on the outside of the shoe should go right through the upper and show on the inside as well.
Inside label details vary depending on year, country of manufacture and style. Check the style number, usually 9 digits, matches that found on the box. Check that the tail of the Q in FABRIQUE starts inside the circle. Check for any spelling errors and that the glue area is uniform and neat. The shoe's production date will fall between the two dates indicated on the label. Tip: Do a Google image search for "Nike"+"style number" to check the colourway.
Nike Air Footscape's have deep flex grooves for flexibility, which can be demonstrated by bending or twisting the shoe. These deep grooves create a smooth, natural ride.
