5. Box Logo

Air Max 2004's will have a Swoosh printed onto the lid of the box. Make sure the printing is solid with sharp straight edges, also look for the cutout slit in the box lid that allows for a support tab to come through.

9. Heel Logo

The heel has an embossed 2004 logo. Make sure the typeface used is correct, take note that the numerals have a rounded edge to them. Look for the small Swoosh embossed into the lower panel below the 2004 logo. Make sure the Swoosh has a pronounced V shaped profile, and that the edges are clean and sharp.

14. Laces

Nike Air Max 2004's come with high quality flattened tubular laces, make sure the tips of the laces have a tight clear cap. There should be a rib line join running down the side of the lace.

23. Sockliners

Nike Air Max 2004's come with molded sockliners, look for the small double line of ventilation holes drilled right through the sockliner that run just down the center. Take note of the air unit in the heel that provides added protection in the high impact heel zone.
