How To Tell If Your 'Shattered Backboard' Air Jordan 1s Are Real or Fake

soleofchicago

The "Shattered Backboard" Air Jordan 1 is already one of the biggest sneaker releases of 2015. Following this past weekend's instant sellout, pairs are fetching between $450-$500 on the market, a steep markup from the $160 box price.

But because of the large demand, counterfeit manufacturers have been hard at work pumping fake pairs into the market — and they're pretty good. However, they're not without tell-tale signs, and @Fake_Education broke them down on Instagram earlier today.

See the differences between an authentic pair purchased from a store and an unauthorized pair below.

Beware of the fakes that is out here. Thank You! Fake Education for the deep analysis.
