Some, but not all, Air Force 1 sneakers will come in paper wrapping, check the typeface and position of the "AF-1" is correct.

11. Swoosh

The trademarked Nike Swoosh is carefully stitched onto the side of Nike Air Force 1 Mid Cork shoes. When checking the Swoosh, make sure the stitching is tight and even and follows the shape of the Swoosh perfectly.

19. Strap Stitching

The opposite end of the Velcro strap will have a leather inner panel, take note of how the cork top loops back and is joined to the leather panel with a double stitch line. Make sure the stitching is tight, neat and evenly spaced.

26. Sockliners

Some Nike Air Force 1's will have removable sockliners. Check the construction of the sockliner, with molded curves at the midfoot arch. There should be a size indication embossed into the material, usually it is described as a range of 2 sizes.
