Just thought it'd be useful to have an official thread for this.
Feel free to drop knowledge on spotting fakes. list dodgy websites etc.

Tip #1: (Use Common sense) If the price is too good to be true, it's fake.

Use common sense, if you see a pair of Jordan XI Black/White on a site selling for $89.99 and they have sizes 8-13 in stock. Gotta be fake, there's no store on earth that are even selling real Jordan XI's in a full size stock run from 8-13, let alone for a price of $89.99 when box price on the originals was $125 and/or $150 for the retros

This should always be the first rule you use when buying sneakers...IMO

Tip #2: pay attention to the overall SHAPE OF THE f**kING SHOE, can't stress this enough, if that s**t looks off from pics of the shoe that sneakerblogs put up online, then 9/10 it's fake, you have to pay attention to detail when it comes to a shoe you really, really want, check it out from top to bottom, so when you try to cop from a reseller, you can know if some s**t is off.

well not necessarily, sneakerblogs usually post pictures of samples, which turn out sometimes different from the actual released shoe.

A great site to see a shoe in detailed pics is kixnthecity.com

Experience will tell you... If a shoe has colors that don't exist. If the shoe doesn't come with an official looking box. But most of all... Stick to tip #1 and you'll be straight.

I got a question. I can't ever seem to catch the kicks when the get released so I'm looking on ebay and see the ones i want but then I see the shoebox and be like naaaaah. Its the Jordan box that has the grey lid with the lines in. I see the folks pushin those at the corner store so then when i see it on ebay I just keep it moving. Some times its hard to tell.

So 1. Am i right to avoid anything with that jordan shoe box?
& 2. what sites do i need to get to so that i can be one of the buyers/wearers before the buyer/resellers get ahold of them?
