This is one of those comparisons I didn’t want to do because of the complexity of the new breed of fake sneakers. It’s extremely hard to find flaws when the shoes aren’t on hand so it takes an awful lot of time to identify the flaws. The Fake Air Jordan 6 All Star ASW Chameleon I saw were probably one of the best ones in the market ( and I intentionally choose the best fakes so it’s easier to bust the worst ones). I will always remind you of the same thing every time; if the price is too cheap, if the seller claims he has a plug overseas, if the smell of the shoes is really strong ( glue smell), if the craftsmanship is subpar, if the box label looks off then the shoes are probably not legitimate. My comparisons aren’t exhaustive, so study the shoes yourself carefully prior to making your purchase from non retail shops online.
I start off every comparison the same way, which one do you think is fake? pic 1 or pic 2? take about 2 minutes to look at each thoroughly to see if you can identify any flaws. I’m sure most of you will say pic 1 is fake and pic 2 is real- it’s pretty obvious because “pic 2” is the official picture that Jordan Brand published.
Now unto the comparison: Fake Air Jordan 6 All Star ASW Chameleon 907961 015
The color shade is not the same on both pair if you look at the perforated side panels ( the yellow circle shows a darker shade on the authentic pair and a lighter one on the fake one with slightly bigger holes on the fakes as well). On the heel pods/pockets ( see yellow rectangle) the holes appear bigger on the fake pair and smaller on the authentic. The red arrow pointing down shows you how the fake pair’s lining is literally non existent, you don’t see it at all.
The jumpman does not look the same and the lining on the back has a deeper cut on the fake pair ( a little more steep on the fakes, I might be exaggerating but that is what I noticed). Feel free to add any additional details You think I’ve missed.
Look at the contrast in the color shade on the outsole ; the fake pair has a darker purple tint ( see yellow circle) and the black are near the midfoot appears rough and powdery on the fake pair ( which is typical on most fakes). And if you look at heel area the holes on the outsole do not have the same shape.
These guys are hilarious, they have a Canadian suggested retail price on the box with the ” US size” highlighted. You can clearly see the differences in the boxes as well. The fake box has that ashy look on the lid of the box and the label as well.
That’s all I noticed on my end for now , feel free to add any additional details; I’m also going add a few more pictures of the fakes below for your convenience.
Here is a list of authorized retailers and ebay sellers with authentic pairs:
