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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Nike Zoom Hyperflights feature a double-lasted synthetic leather upper which has ventilation holes. Check the perfect alignment and placement of the holes.
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.
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.
Nike Zoom Hyperflight sole patterns are distinctive, always make sure they are high quality and not worn out if the shoes are new.
