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: Tongue Logo
Nike Zoom Hyperflights feature a Nike logo moulded into clear plastic on the tongue. The word Nike is both embossed into the clear plastic and then printed behind that embossing. Check that the quality of the stitching is tight, evenly spaced with no loose ends.
Step 5: Insole Logo
A logo normally features on the insole. It is usually the standard Nike and Swoosh, check that the printing is solid with sharp edges. If the shoes are new make sure the logo is not worn away. Some special edition styles may feature a different logo entirely.
Step 6: Inner Side
Nike Zoom Hyperflights feature a double-lasted synthetic leather upper which has ventilation holes. Check the perfect alignment and placement of the holes. Also check the joins of the upper panels making sure there are no glue marks.
Step 7: Heel Stitching
High quality stitching can be hard to replicate. Check carefully that the stitching on the heel of the Hyperflight panels is well hidden but evenly spaced where visible. Check that the glued join of the sole has no glue marks showing.
Step 8: Heel Logo
Nike Zoom Hyperflights feature a Flight logo in a clear plastic mould which is stitched into the heel. Check that the Flight word is in 3D and that the plastic moulding itself is not flat. Also check that the quality of the stitching around the plastic mould is tight, evenly spaced with no loose ends.
Step 9: Sole
Nike Zoom Hyperflight sole patterns are distinctive, always make sure they are high quality and not worn out if the shoes are new.
