Learn how to spot fake Nike Lebron 11 Elite'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. Swoosh Toe

Lebron 11 Elite's have a Swoosh fused onto the toebox, make sure the edges of the join are neat and flat. Note the star shape embossed underneath the Swoosh.

17. Lunarlon Unit

Nike Lebron 11 Elite's utilize the superior comfort and support of a Lunarlon and Zoom Unit midsole. If you look under the midsole insert you will see the Zoom Unit cushioning.

19. Heel Window

If you remove the midsole inserts you will see a clear window at the heel which allows you to see right through the shoe. Also take note of the stitching joining the sole to the upper, make sure it is neat and evenly spaced. There should also be a small code printed at the edge of the clear window.
