Tips to avoid fake websites

Okay, today I've reviewed probably my 50th email of the week about fake websites and it's only Tuesday. So I'm asking you guys for a little help. I have some rules that I go by when I look at a website when I'm trying to determine if it's worth the risk of making a purchase or not. They are listed below, but outside of those tips what are some of the ways you judge a site? So please comment and let me know.

1. Know your colorways! This will immediately eliminate many fake websites.

2. Know what the market value of the shoe is. Jordan's are not $49, $59, $69, $79, $89.

3. Check the size selection, if you sizes 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10, 11, 12 that should be a sign. Half sizes like 10.5 and 11.5 should be available.

4. Check for rare releases and availability of them. Example if the site has the XXIII Premier in a full size run for like $100 then you know the site sells fakes.

5. If you see the words "Cheap Jordans" you should be on alert because one thing Jordan's are not, is cheap.

6. Check there other shoe selections, example if they have Air Yeezy's for $89, or Louis Vitton, Prada etc for super cheap prices then you know it's a fake site.
