On the inside label of the shoe tab, a date is printed twice in MM/DD/YY format (for example, 12/31/15) under the size information.

Nike Air Max lettering and Nike Swoosh logo

The Nike Swoosh logo must be cut uniformly and the seams run at approximately the same distance from the logo.

The letters of the AIR MAX lettering protrude and are often colorfully painted. The paint must not come off.

If the AIR MAX lettering is only painted on and cannot be felt, it is a fake.

Nike Air Max Air Pad / Air Pad

On the original, you can see through the air cushion to the other side of the sole.

In the original Nike Air, the nubs that protrude into the air cushion from above and below narrow towards the center where they meet.

With counterfeits, the air pad is usually very cloudy, so you can't see through it.

On the Nike Fake, the studs sometimes have different colors than the sole in that area and also look like they are not part of the sole.


Nike Air insole

The insole of the sneaker shows the lettering "Nike Air" with the Swoosh in between on the original. This lettering may not come off even with repeated use if it is an original.
