Learn how to spot fake Nike Air Max Hyperposite's with this detailed 14 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

4. Box Label

Nike retail boxes feature a label on one side detailing barcode, style name, size, color, country of manufacture and a style number. The style number is usually 9 digits long, the first 6 digits represent the style and the last 3 digits represent the colourway. Check that this style number matches the one located inside the shoe and on the sales receipt. Tip 1: Do a Google image search for "Nike"+"style number" to check the colourway. Tip 2: scan the barcode with a barcode scanner app, the exact product including size should be correct.

8. Tongue Logo

Air Max Hyperposites feature a glued on Hyperposite logo on the tongue, check the quality of the debossing and that the colour of the Hyperposite word matches the colourway of the shoe. This is also an opportunity to check the close up quality of the glued panel over the mesh. Tip: Google search the style number to check the colourway.

13. Sole Logo

Nike Air Max Hyperposites have a logo under each sole. The logo is made of a different material to the rest of the sole. Make sure the pattern that runs across the sole is continued when it runs through this logo.
