Learn how to spot fake Nike KD 7 NSW Lifestyle's with this detailed 23 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 (even a photo of one) with a barcode scanner app, the exact product including size should be correct.

10. Toe Swoosh

Nike KD 7 Lifestyle's have a Swoosh laser etched into the forefoot, make sure the etching is high quality with clean straight edges. Also note the perforated holes just above the Swoosh, check that they follow a neat triangular shape.

11. Lace Signature

At the base of the laces of KD 7 Lifestyle's there is a Kevin Durant signature laser etched into a small tab. The signature can be hard to read because it is so small. Make sure the laces provided are high quality flat woven laces.

22. Sole Logo

There is a molded Nike logo glued onto the sole, make sure the edges of the logo are sharp and clean. Note how the K and E are joined to each other and the Swoosh. Take this opportunity to have a close look at the fine texture of the outsole which aids grip.
