Learn how to spot fake Nike Air Presto's with this detailed 29 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.
Nike retail boxes feature a label on one side detailing barcode, style name, size, color, country of manufacture and a style number. Nike Air Presto's have an unusual feature of being broken down into unisex sizes ranging from XXS-XL. 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 1: Do a Google image search for "Nike"+"style number" to check the colourway. Tip 2: scan the barcode (even a photo of one) with a barcode scanner app, the exact product including size should be correct.
Nike Air Presto's have a clear plastic but woven looking pull tab on the heel. Note how this pull tab sits very round and open due to the nature of the rigid plastic. Molded into the center of this pull tab is a supportive rubber strip, note how this rubber strip pushes down into the pull tab as opposed to just sitting stuck on top. Check the stitch line holding the pull tab in place, make sure the stitching is tight, neat and evenly spaced.
Nike Air Presto's have a clear plastic logo on the tongue. The logo has the letter P with a Swoosh. Look for the fine clear plastic stitching around the edge of the logo patch. Make sure the stitching is tight, neat and evenly spaced. Note how the logo is molded into the back of the patch so that the top surface is flat.
Nike Air Presto's have a BRS 1000 logo debossed into the heel pod of the outsole. BRS is a rubber with carbon added for maximum durability, typically a very strong rubber that can withstand heavy use. Make sure the letters have slightly rounded edges and that the typeface used is correct.
