Step 1: Shoe Box  
New Nikes are boxed in a strong shoe box usually featuring the logo on the lid and side. Colour and style of box varies according to style and year. Check the box carefully for any errors in brand logos, alignment, spelling and overall     finish quality. Remember real shoe boxes can accompany fake shoes.  

Step 2: Box Label  
Nike retail boxes feature a label on one side detailing style name, size, colour, country of manufacture and a style number. The style number is usually 9 digits long, check that it matches the style number located on the label located inside the shoe.  

Step 3: Inside Label  
Inside label details vary depending on year, country of manufacture and style. Check the style number, usually 9 digits, matches that found on the box. Check that the tail of the Q in FABRIQUE starts inside the circle. Check for any spelling errors and that the stitching is straight and neat.  

Step 4: Nike Swoosh
The trademarked Nike swoosh is both carefully and immaculately stitched, glued or printed onto most pairs of Nike Air Max 2013 shoes. When inspecting the photo, ensure it is not glued, printed or stitched to a poor standard. Be aware that some limited edition styles may not have a swoosh on the side.

Step 5: Air Support
Nike Air Max 2013 shoes feature a full length Max Air cushion support for maximum protection during repeated landings. Make sure the manufacture and finish is of high quality.

Step 6: Laces
Nike Air Max 2013 shoes feature unique lace support which can be seen through the hyperfuse upper. Make sure the quality and finish of the seals around the fused layers is neat and clean.

Step 7: Sole 
Nike Air Max 2013 sole patterns are distinctive, always make sure they are high quality and not worn out if the shoes are new. A Nike swoosh is present but may not have the normal registered R found on many other Nike shoe soles.

Step 8: Heel Sealing 
Nike Air Max 2013 shoes feature multiple layers fused together. Make sure the quality and finish of the seals around the fused layers of the heel are neat and clean.
