Fakes pushers and sellers have come a long way. Not too long ago when the current owners of Kicksonfire and Nicekicks sold fakes, it was much easier to tell the difference. Starting with Nike SB Box Tags here is a comprehensive guide of legitimate boxes in sizes 6-11. Please use this thread for reference and utilize the comments to address any concerns or questions.
A general rule of thumb with non-authentic boxes:
– a little tail in “5” for half sizes
– the number and “5” are vertically aligned at top
– There is no tail of the “5”
– “5” is not evenly aligned at the top
