Take a closer look at the heel upper. The middle panel is a thin, rough plastic with a printed "Air" pattern. Make sure the printed logos are solid with sharp edges, and are all consistently printed and spaced. Note the small Swoosh logo under the A throughout the pattern. In the center of the heel the pattern varies with "Air" printed on a yellow border, rather than green.
Nike Air Max 1 Limeades have Air Unit technology for lightweight cushioning and maximum impact protection. Make sure the air "bubble" is clear with no paint marks. The support structure within the Air Unit should be clearly visible. This is a good opportunity to have a close up look at the fine texture of the rubber midsole.
The Air Max 1 Limeades come with three sets of spare laces in green, white, and a green and white striped pattern. They should be the same flat woven style of the original laces.
Air Max 1 Limeades come with molded sockliner inserts. Check the shape of the sockliners, specifically how the sides curve up to follow your foot shape. The sockliners are patterned with printed photos of limes. Make sure the printing is solid and sharp, showing all the details of the limes.
