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

Nike Rosherun Flyknit's have a densely embroidered Swoosh on the side, check that the stitch it very tight and even.

14. Insole Stitching

If you remove the sockliners in both shoes you will see the insole stitching that joins the sole to the upper, make sure the stitching is neat and even. Note the different colour stitching for each shoe as well as the positioning hole drilled into the center of the heel.

17. Sockliner Sizes

If you remove the sockliners and check underneath there should be a size indication debossed into the material, usually it is described as a range of 2 sizes.
