Ever since the “Bred 1” made a comeback in 2016, many sneaker enthusiasts have been impatiently waiting for a reissue of the “Royal 1”. And the news finally came a few days ago when JB announced the official release date of the shoes. The most replicated Jordan retros are the “I & XI” model; I wasn’t surprised when I spotted the Fake Air Jordan 1 Royal on the net. I’ve added a few pictures below with pointers to help you avoid any swindlers selling these as legitimate pairs.

The shoes have no curves, the authentic pairs are supposed to have a bottle-like shape. Look at the picture below of the 2013 royal 1.

You can clearly see the curves on the authentic pair from 2013; JB rarely makes changes to the shape of the shoes so I don’t think the 2017 pair will be any different than the 2013 edition.

The overall shape of the shoes is off ( they are too bulky near the heel panel, see yellow circle).

the blue leather strap has a rough texture ( rugged tumbled leather) on the fakes and a smooth surface on the real pair. I believe JB will use the same material on the lining around the heel collar ( check the yellow ovals , they show how different the material is between both pairs).

Here are more pictures of the fake air Jordan 1 royal , be wise enough to avoid any seller carrying pairs with identical traits


I was told earlier today that the fakes depicted in this article were the worst fakes. What many folks seem to forget is that not everyone understands the different categories of fakes. And anyone familiar with my website knows that I keep my information up to date; when the next batch of fakes is produced I’ll post the newest pictures along with new cues to identify the fakes.

Updated @ 5:14pm I just came across the newest batch of the fakes and to tell you the truth unless I have an authentic pair next to me, it will be literally impossible to bust these, check out the pics below

The fakes are from a site named flightkickz and the only thing that I could notice was the differences of the material around the heel collar, I’ll add additional pictures of the shoes below

Much better here is a video of the fakes the site uploaded on their youtube channel
