Learn how to spot fake Nike Air Jordan 4 Retro's with this detailed 15 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

4. Box Label

Nike retail boxes feature a label on one side detailing 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: Do a Google image search for "Nike"+"style number" to check the colourway.

5. Side Panel

Check the quality of the stitching on the side panel, it should be neat, tight and even and follow the panels perfectly.

9. Air Unit

Nike Jordan 4's have Air Unit technology. Make sure the air "bubble" is clear and of high quality. The support structure within the Air Unit should be clearly visible. Some discoloration over time can occur.
