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: 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 3: Nike Swoosh
Nike KD 6 Lifestyle's feature an embossed swoosh near the front toe area. Check that this swoosh stands noticeably proud of the surface and that the stitching around it is tight, evenly spaced and has no loose ends.
Step 4: Tongue
Nike KD 6 Lifestyle's have an unusual double layer structure tongue. The top tongue has two separate sections, the top section is fabric with a KD logo and the bottom section is a soft leather. Also check that the tongue is rigid and stands up while still holding it's shape.
Step 5: Tongue Logo
KD 6 Lifestyles have a very neatly embroidered KD logo on the tongue. Make sure the embroidery is perfectly tight, even and has no loose ends. Check that the K and the D are not joined or are touching.
Step 6: Signature
There is a perfectly stitched Kevin Durant signature on the second layer of the tongue. Make sure the quality of the stitching is excellent, evenly spaced, tight and has no loose ends. Also take note of the texture of the leather.
Step 7: Insole Logo
New KD 6 Lifestyles have a unique label stitched into the insole. That label has the KD logo as well as a Kevin Durant signature embroided into it. Check the quality of the embroidery work but also the way the stitching around the edges of the label has been done, there should be two colours of stitching used.
Step 8: KD Logo
There is a KD logo embossed on the side of the ankle, make sure it stands very noticeably out from the surface and has perfectly even and sharp edges.
Step 9: Sole
KD 6 Lifestyles have a distinctive sole pattern, with very fine line detail that is hard to see. Check that the fine line quality is sharp and clear and that the soles are not worn out if the shoes are new.
