Learn how to spot fake Nike Foamposite Pro's with this detailed 24 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.

12. Side Swoosh

The outstep of Nike Foamposite Pro's have a molded Swoosh glued to the side. Check the quality of the Swoosh making sure the edges are clean and straight. Make sure there is a thin outline/step to the Swoosh. Also note how the Swoosh is slightly debossed into the side panel.

13. Toe Holes

Nike Foamposite Pro's have ventilation holes in the toe box, check that the holes reduce in size proportionally as they move away from the center. This is also an opportunity to check the stitching along the toe box panel, make sure it is tight, neat and evenly spaced.

22. Carbon Support

Nike Foamposite Pro's have a carbon fiber support structure in the midfoot region that runs just under the translucent outsole. The bumpy checkerboard texture of the carbon fiber can be seen when it catches the light.
