GUIDE ON HOW TO TELL FROM FAKE AND REAL NIKE AIR JORDANS

IrisWildcat

*Shoebetcha – My rule is, if im buying Jordan's off Ebay, make sure the seller has feedback, and not just any feedback. Make sure the seller you are buying them from has positive feedback only, and at least one person that recieved kicks from him/her has something good to say about the shoes, ex. "Authentic shoes, fast shipping, good Ebayer". This will make you feel more comfortable when buying them. Here is some pics i did for you so you can tell the fake J 3's from the real ones. Hopefully this helps.
