Counterfeiters are cashing-in on the demand of hype and limited releases such as the Ben & Jerry’s x Nike SB Dunk Low “Chunky Dunky”, Travis Scott x Nike Air Max 270 React, Off-White x Jordan IV and the Dior x Air Jordan 1, while leaving many sneaker lovers with worthless fake shoes. Facebook groups have now become a hot spot for “legit checks” or authentication. But do you know which photos to share?

Let us walk through some pictures you may need to share for better authentication results. For this example, we used the Air Jordan 1, 7, 11 and a Yeezy 350 V2 as illustrations. However, this concept is applied to almost all shoe brands when requesting sneakers authentication.

Do you really need this many pictures? Not necessarily, but the more high quality pictures and angles, the more in-depth review and accuracy. Get your sneakers authenticated on Ownkicks by professionals and receive $4.99 in store credit after your first authentication request.
