Learn how to spot fake Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary Reds with this detailed 36 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

21. Laces

Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary Reds have high quality flat woven laces made of a shiny, synthetic material. Make sure the weave in the laces is tight and even. Check that the lace tips are sealed in clear plastic aglets.

25. Tongue Logo

Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary Reds have a Nike Swoosh logo and Air Max embroidered onto a tab on the tongue. Check that the embroidery is tight and neat with no loose ends showing. Make sure the typeface used is correct. Check that the stitching around the edge of the tab is neat and tight and follows the edge of the square perfectly.

31. Sockliner Code

At the toe of the sockliners is a small embossed code which includes the shoe size. Make sure the size matches the ones on the box and inner shoe labels. Note the embossed squares throughout the bottom of the sockliner for improved cushioning along pressure points. At the toe are also small holes drilled through the sockliner for additional ventilation.

35. Dust Bag

Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary Reds come with a soft, synthetic material dust bag with a drawstring. One one side, the dust bag features the same slanted silver stripes on the lower half as the retail box.
