The main rule when it comes to identifying fake LeBron 8’s is the new naming system and the box. First of all they’re called Nike LeBron 8, not Zoom LeBron VIII nor Air Max LeBron VIII. The numbers are no longer roman, but arabic instead. So be sure to check out those boxes, which by the way should look like the one posted here. The original box features an image of LeBron James and a lion emerging from behind. Additionally, most of fake Nike LeBron 8’s are simply made up colorways. That’s why, be sure to check out all photos below for a list of many not existing versions. Compare them with our official LBJ8 Listing and the Gallery and you’ll have your answer. Of course the inline style – Black/White/Red – is the hardest to spot. A fake version is listed below and the poor quality of Carbon Fiber panels plus incorrect number of ventilation holes on the medial side give away counterfeits. Other hints also apply here. Finally, please pay attention to details… for example lace jewels, the new signature on the back of the shoe, the insole label (WITNESS insignia), new Nike tags etc. Fakes makers tend to mix them up.
