1. Profile

Learn how to spot fake Nike Charles Barkley Posite Max's with this detailed 20 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

5. Inside Label

Inside label details vary depending on year, country of manufacture and style. Check the style number, usually 9 digits, matches that found on the box. Check that the tail of the Q in FABRIQUE starts inside the circle. Check for any spelling errors and that the glue area is uniform and neat. The shoe's production date will fall between the two dates indicated on the label. Tip: Do a Google image search for "Nike"+"style number" to check the colourway.

8. Tongue Logo

The tongue has a CB logo with swoosh embossed into a rubber disc. Check the quality of the embossing, the edges of the logo should be sharp and clear, check that the figure's ears are defined and the small Swoosh logo is sharp. Make sure the stitching around the rubber disc is tight, neat and evenly spaced.

17. Heel Tab

Nike Barkley Posite Max's have a pull tag on the heel with an embroidered Air logo. Check that the quality of the stitching is tight and even.
