Which Union Jordan 1 Is Real?

The difference between real and fake Union Jordan 1s.

The counterfeit game is scary. Fakes are getting better and better, and many will argue "what makes them fake?" I've heard it all from "they are made in the same factories" to "they are just unauthorized."

The last time I checked fake is fake. But nowadays it seems like it doesn't matter as much or that some people no longer care. At the end of the day, that's on you.

As for the Union Jordan 1 challenge, one is real and the other is fake. I recently saw a fake Union 1s in person, and I wouldn't have known they were fake if I saw someone wearing them.

This comparison is interesting because it's a close shot of a real and fake pair. You can compare detail to detail and form your opinion on which pair you think is real.

Watch the video above and let's talk about it in the comments. Also, feel free to share anything else fake related.

The left pair is the official pair the trademark symbol is always at the top of the flight symbol not at the back

Pair on the left.. the blue stitching looks to be done way more precisely. Thats going based off this one pick. Would need to see more pic to be sure.

Bro.. what happened to "Say no to fakes?" used to be one of my favorite segments on the site.

Based off the Air Jordan wings logo, I'm going to go with the left pair being authentic.

The right pair I think is the real. I obviously could tell better in person. The leather quality on the right pair looks much better. What bothers me about the right pair is the back red panel stitching don’t look 100% right to me. On the left pair the exposed leather portions on the black looks too light too. Also there appears to be more cosmetic stitching issues with the left pair. Right is my final answer.

Looking forward to see what people have to say about this.
