Instructions

  1. 1

    Check for a shoebox that it is not flimsy or weak; genuine Nike shoeboxes are made of strong and sturdy cardboard.

  2. 2

    Inspect the shoes for colour bleeding, fading or hue changes. If any colour distortions are visible, the shoes may not be a genuine Nike Flights.

  3. 3

    Try on the shoes to verify sizing. If the fit does not seem right for your size, the shoes may be knock-offs.

  4. 4

    Inspect the shoes for rubber soles. If they feel like plastic or are slippery to the touch, the shoes are probably fakes.

  5. 5

    Check for a Nike SKU number on the inside tongue of each shoe that matches the number on the shoebox. This string of numbers and letters uniquely identifies a Nike product.

Tips and warnings

  • All new Nike shoes are sold with a sturdy shoebox -- beware of any seller that cannot provide one.
