Learn how to spot fake Nike Lebron 12 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.

9. Heel Detail

Nike Lebron 12 Lifestyle's will have an embroidered pull tab on the heel. Check that the embroidery is neat and even. Check the stitching joining the tab to the upper is tight, and evenly spaced. Tip: The Denim edition will have 330 embroidered onto the tab, which stands for Lebron's area code where he is from in Akron.

16. Tongue Logo

Nike Lebron 12 Lifestyle's have a LJ logo laser etched into a patch on the tongue. Check that the etching is sharp and clear. Check that the stitching holding the patch on is tight, and evenly spaced. Take this opportunity to have a close look at the mesh fabric of the tongue.

23. Sole Logo

There is a debossed LJ logo in the sole, check that the edges of the logo are sharp and straight. Take this opportunity to have a close look at the fine lines in the sole pattern, make sure they are a consistent depth and space apart.
