Learn how to spot fake Nike Air Jordan 3 Cements with this detailed 30 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

6. Wrapping

Nike Air Jordan 3 Cements come with elephant print wrapping paper to protect the shoes. Make sure the print is solid and sharp. Make sure the size and scale of the pattern is the same as on the retail box.

14. Elephant Pattern

Nike Air Jordan 3 Cements come with an elephant print toe and heel mudguard. Check that the elephant print is etched into the upper fabric and not just printed on top of it. Make sure each grey spot is slightly smaller than the etched spot. In other words, each grey spot will have a black edge to it.

21. Tongue Strap

The Air Jordan 3 Cement's tongue is held in place with an elastic strap. The strap provides the padded tongue with strong support to improve performance and stability. Make sure you can see two tiny triangular positioning marks cut out of the tongue material; there will be one on each side of the strap.

29. Sole Logo

Air Jordan 3 Cements have a Nike logo embossed into the sole. Make sure the typeface is correct. Make sure the logo has sharp, well defined edges. Make sure the K and E are joined. Note how the red paint wraps round the sides of the logo slightly. This is also an opportunity to have a close look at the fine star-like sole texture that provides added grip.
