Learn how to spot fake Nike Air Jordan 6 Retro's with this detailed 19 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

5. Inside Label

Inside label details vary depending on year, country of manufacture and style. Check the style number, usually 9 digits, matches that found on the box. Check that the tail of the Q in FABRIQUE starts inside the circle. Check for any spelling errors and that the glue area is uniform and neat. The shoe's production date will fall between the two dates indicated on the label. Tip: Do a Google image search for "Nike"+"style number" to check the colourway.

10. Lace Cover

Nike Air Jordan 6 Retro's feature a lockable lace cover, if you roll the lace cover back you will find a clip that locks the lace cover in position.

11. Lace Toggle

Nike Air Jordan 6 Retro's have a small lace lock toggle with spring loaded locking mechanism, check that the quality of the plastic is good with no rough edges. Also make sure the Jumpman printed on the lace lock is the correct colour for the colourway.

19. Vent Holes

Nike Air Jordan 6 Retro's have solid ankle supports with ventilation holes for comfort. Check the positions of the holes as well as the hole sizes. Check that the stitching around the ventilation area is tight and neat with even spacing. Take note of the molded lateral lines between the lace holes, how they blend down into the panel where they meet the stitching.
