1. Profile

Learn how to spot fake Nike Dunk CMFT's with this detailed 23 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

7. Heel Tab

Nike Dunk CMFT's have a tab on the heel. Check that the stitching around the tab is tight, neat and evenly spaced. Check that all the stitching along the heel panels is tight and evenly spaced, making sure the stitching follows each panel edge.

14. Lace Stitching

Nike Dunk CMFT's have intricate stitch detailing around the toe box and lower lace area. Make sure the stitching is tight, neat and evenly spaced, make sure the double stitch line follows the shape of the panel perfectly. This is a good opportunity to make sure the laces provided are high quality flat woven laces.

17. Sole Detail

Nike Dunk CMFT's have cut outs through the outsole, that show the midsole, to reduce weight and optimize flexibility. Note how the pivot point has no center.

19. 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.
