Learn how to spot fake Nike Rosherun NM's with this detailed 17 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.

8. Lace Stitching

Nike Rosherun NM BR's have embroidered lace eyelets, make sure the stitching is tight and neat.

14. 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.

16. Sole Logo

There is a Nike logo and Swoosh debossed into the rubber outsole, check that the edges of the letters are neat and straight. Take this opportunity to have a close look at the fine texture of the sole which provides superior surface grip.
