Learn how to spot fake Nike Rosherun Sneakerboot's with this detailed 21 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 Rosherun Sneakerboot's have a woven heel pull tab, make sure the colour is correct for the colourway, check that the stitching holding the tab in place is tight, neat and evenly spaced. Note how the tab folds under the lining at the top join.

11. Lace Holes

Under the upper of Nike Rosherun Sneakerboot's there is a folded back panel with square lace holes. Check that the stitching holding the folded back section is tight, neat and evenly spaced. Also take note of the stitch pattern around the top eyelets.

20. Sole Flex

Nike Rosherun Sneakerboot's have deep flex grooves in the forefoot that allow your foot to move in a natural motion, make sure that the sole can fold back easily.
