YEah...I can't say it didn't cross my mind but why would there be fakes of a shoe that doesn't exist looking nothing like a Jordan? What would be the point, ya know?
The serial # is a near-exact match on the main #s & factory as the XX1 Lows I have.
Also, as stated, the size is literally identical to my 12s... that's almost unheard of for fakes, which run crazy-small compared to legit kicks (I had a pair of fakes that I made the seller pay me back for and they said 12s but I couldn't even get my feet in them but I could wear 11.5 legit pair in the exact same shoe.
I noticed the edges and whatnot too, that aren't even but these really seem like work-up samples that weren't designed to be worn but were built on the exact same last as real XX1s.
The materials are REALLY exacting, the jumpman logos are spot on the same as teh regular release lows down to the minute details, like the grill piece on the tongue, same as the grills on the sides of XX1s, the "3D" style Jumpmen on the toe and heel...exactly the same shape, down to the hands, basketball, shoe laces, etc.
Also the stitching is impeccable around the whole shoe: the uppers, the quilting inside...SOOOO different than fakes I've seen that are jagged and have those little triangles found all over the poorly-cut uppers.
I won't say I'm not skeptical but I'd actually be kinda shocked to find out these are completely fake. They'd be the strangest, most well-made fake Jordan of a shoe never produced that I'll ever see.
Zach13g: you have pics of the sample XX1s you could post? All the samples I saw looked nothing like these and incorporated more of the suede that were used on the regular releases...
