The Nike Air Max 1/97 VF SW has a different box to all other Air Max sneakers. The lid of the box will have a Nike logo with corduroy print design taken from all the different fabric patterns used on the upper of the shoe.

18. Spare Laces

There is a set of three extra laces, the tips of these laces are sealed in clear plastic. Make sure the clear bags these spare laces come in have a Nike logo printed on them. Check that the printing is solid and sharp, take note of the red stripe along the top edge of the plastic bag.

26. Forefoot

Look for the positioning hole drilled into the center of the forefoot insole, it is hard to see but it is there. Check that the stitching joining the insole to the upper is neat and evenly spaced.

29. Sockliners
