Picked up a Method 001 yesterday and noticed that the paint fill in the sight dot, the Nike swoosh on the face, and a couple other areas is not black, but rather a dark shade of what I would call army green. From a distance you probably couldnít tell, but in the sun itís fairly noticeable.

I had one do these a few years back and Iím fairly certain the paint fill was black. Iíve also looked at just about every picture online that I can find and they all appear to be black.

Also, the thin milled line that runs the length of the sole from heel to toe (in the very center) is not perfectly straight. You wouldnít notice it at first glance, but itís definitley got some curvature to it. So all this got me wondering if this thing could be a fake.

Iíd post pics but I donít know if the color would even be that noticble in a photograph.

Thoughts?

Could possibly one that came from overstock that Nike sold to various vendors like Dallas Golf- those often did not have paintfill or alignment aids so that could be added later based upon player preference.
