Nice pick-ups, ern.

Dig those Blazers.

Got my Mexi connex watching for those Day of the Dead joints. Highly unlikely I'll get a pair but worth a try.

well....it's a shot in the dark but if you happen to get 2 pair....i'll throw you some extra cash. i heard that they were only making 200 pair...don't know how true that is. it's cool to have limited quantities but sometimes it's ridiculous and it makes people get greedy on ebay.

For a newbie to the sneaker game....DON'T BUY ON EBAY unless you absolutely know what you're looking at. I'm to the point where I can look at some shoes and tell if they're fake or not but there are some fakes that still fool me. Only buy from credible sneaker boutiques or Niketown. You just have to be smart....sometimes even so called sneaker boutiques will try to get a fake off on you. All the shoes I post and will ever post are genuine Nike releases and not customs. I never buy customs (unless they are Sabotage's and he even collabs with Nike now....an I'm sure no one knows what I'm talking about.)

They're are many factor customs : The paint is what always gives it away it's usually something "off" on the shoe and it stands out. The painter hasn't got the technique mastered yet or they usually get buckwild on the designs/colors on theshoe...that's how you really know.

The ID's only come in certain colors on the site so you know. Like in that "Do you dress in streetwear" post that dude with the nuthuggers had on ID's because of the colors used.

Custom sneakers doesn't mean they're not authentic Nikes it just means some dude wants his shoes to look "exclusive" so he painted some regular all white forces so his friends can ask "where you get those?"




Fakes is a completely different topic: The material on fakes give it away (don't get me wrong Nike uses cheap material) but I mean the fakes almost look plastic(y).

The swoosh will also give it away. The swoosh might look crooked or fatter than usual. Say the swoosh on the dunk looks like the swoosh on the blazer.

When the light hits the color is usually duller on fakes like clowdy

If the shoe looks like it's folding in the front like an elf-ish.


If you see some Jordans in a color you have never seen a day in your life and you question yourself. "I never seen those IV in that color?"





NOTE:

Nike usually sticks to the basics on colors and fabrics ( nubuck, leather, suede ect) unless it's a "special , limited or super duper rare" joints.

To add to that, there are a few other things, in respect to Jordans, that you can also look for, like the box. Most of the fakes are cheap copies, not sturdy, crumpled up. The Jumpman is another givaway. Fakes usually have a webbed looking hand where as og's have actual fingers.

With og SB's the extra pair of laces is attached to the right shoe. And like mama alwas said to me, "if it's too good to be true, then it probably is." So if you see some Jordan 1's or Pigeon Dunks and they are $50.00, well 'nuff said.

except the sandlewood sb's...the real ones turn up at the toe because they're canvas/hemp. but everyone is on point.

also...the bottom of the sole the and the INSIDE TAG has soooooooooo many giveaways. the stitching of the word "NIKE" in the back. fake af1's are easily spotted....

go to the forum section at www.nikeskateboarding.org....they have pretty much all the info you need.
