6. Side Jumpman

Air Jordan 9 Retro Box's sometimes feature a Jumpman logo varnished onto the side. Make sure the quality of the varnishing is sharp and clear. Check that the Jumpman's fingers and shoe laces are well defined.

11. Stitching

Check that the quality of the embroidered Air Jordan logo on the tongue is tight. Check how the stitching around the last plastic lace loop becomes a double row from a single row.

13. Sole Jumpman

The Jumpman on the sole is debossed into the plastic. There is no finger or lace detail on this Jumpman.
