i thought we had a stickied thread for this?

doh image upside down but i cant fix that.

doesnt look real to me but i'm no judge of 90s. the ostrich leather normally has little circular lumps on it from memory. its hard to tell with your repaint already done. lots of it strikes me as odd, but maybe its your repaint.

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

it has the circular lumps, lighting is bad but they are definetly there..

when i take the insoles out and look in the inside it is stitched not glued together if that is an indicator...

But it was a limited model, I don't think they would bother to duplicate it in china (searched a lot of fakes sites too to see if they have this model)

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

f**k you got swindled bro

mik let me put a f***in picture in here

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

it wasn't that limited was it?

at least it was only $20

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

@hypekills1 are you sure? how I can I tell that these are fakes?

@brendan: I dont know I thought they were only released in germany (with the ostrich leather part atleast...) but if these are fake I will try to get my money back through paypal, couldve bought new fakes for 20 lol. But I want authentic ones!

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

Yeah they're fake..swoosh is too dark and wonky shaped large, tongue tag text should be entirely infrared..etc

pics of a real pair:

doubt you'll be able to get money back as you've already painted them..

u r spending most of u lifetime on ur feets man, r u insane or u r Wikipedian guy especially like protecting ur beautiful feets??

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

Those are fake.

One of my faves and I have two pairs.

Easiest marker is the infrared highlights around the bubble on the midsole.

On the originals it is a solid plastic transparent insert, same as the lace accent pieces.

On yours it's painted and flaking off.

Colours are off

Leather is incorrect type.

Unlucky dude.

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

Optikk - i didnt think they were that limited in Australia, but i'm not a 90s expert. i remember seeing modzilla's pairs though. trust what he (and the others) says on this one

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

yea I painted the white part myself dont mid that...

so definetly fake? not doubting you guys but I need to be clear when I confront the seller...

he claimed the shoes were 1999 release...

but anyway thanks for taking time to comment!! much appreciated!

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

if overkill released them in 2008, 1999 seems a bit old?

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

alright talks alot for the help!!

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

yeah, definately not from 99... weren't these easier to get than regular infrared 90s?

All the gear and no idea.

Re: Legit Check Nike Air Max 90 Infrared Premium

i kinda thought so mik. infrareds infrasmeds, didnt pay a whole lot of attention but i remember the whining about the ostrich leather.
