1. Profile

Learn how to spot fake Nike Air Jordan 1 Gold Toes with this detailed 34 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

8. Thumb Hole

The Air Jordan 1 Gold Toe box has a thumb hole on the side. Note how the thumb hole is cut through both layers of the carboard. Make sure the holes are aligned and cleanly cut.

12. Instep Profile

The instep of the Air Jordan 1 Gold Toe reveals the difference in the color of the upper on each side of the shoe.

14. Heel Stitching

Take a closer look at the stitching quality on the heel. Check that the stitching runs perfectly along each panel, and the stitching itself is neat and even.

20. Spare Laces

The Air Jordan 1 Gold Toe comes with two sets of spare laces. One is gold, and the other white. Check the positioning of the hole cut into the bags. Take note of the cable that joins the spare laces to the shoes; it has a cone-shaped locking mechanism.

29. Insole

If you lift the sockliner up you will see the stitching joining the insole to the upper. Make sure the stitching is neat and evenly spaced. There should be a tiny strip of tape holding the loose ends down. Check that there is a positioning hole drilled into the heel.
