Learn how to spot fake Nike KD 7 NSW Lifestyle's with this detailed 22 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.

7. Heel Tab

Nike KD 7 Lifestyle's have a heel pull tab that has tribal accents woven into the fabric. The accents reflect the cultural heritage of Oklahoma City. Make sure the stitching is tight, neat and even. Note how the tab is stitched onto the collar form the underside

9. 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.

18. Insole Date Code

If you remove the sockliner you will see a date code printed onto the insole. Check that the stitching joining the insole to the upper is neat and even, also check that there is a positioning hole drilled into the center of the heel.
