You are in the right place if you wish to know how to spot the fake vs real Adidas Ultraboost sneakers.
In fact, we are here today to teach you how to spot fake Adidas Ultraboostsneakers in fourteen simple steps with our ultimate guide.
Before everything, we would like to mention that this real vs fake Adidas Ultraboost guide applies to every colourway of the Adidas Ultraboost sneakers.
Now that you’ve got the main idea of what we are about to talk about today, let’s get to the seven steps on how to spot fake Adidas Ultraboost sneakers.
The best way to spot a fake Adidas Ultraboost is to inspect for the main inconsistency that warns of a less than authentic pair.
The top indicator you should be checking is the size tag, where the style and text can differentiate between a real and replica Ultraboost.
As for the first step of the real vs fake Adidas Ultrabost legit check guide, we will have to inspect the size tag.
As we said previously, the best way to tell a fake pair of Adidas Ultraboost is to inspect the details of the size tag.
Now that you had a look at the real vs fake Ultraboost images above, let’s analyze in-depth the flaws on the fake Ultraboost sneakers.
1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” text
This is on the first row of the size tag on the Adidas Ultraboost. Here, watch out for the differences in print quality.
On the authentic size tag, the characters are printed with better precision compared to the poor quality of printing on the replicas.
For instance, look at the letters M and D in “MADE” which appear to not be as well defined as the sharp letters on the original size tag.
2 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” Print Text
This is the country code indicator row. Here, you will need to pay attention to the uneven spacing between the text and the two lines above and below it.
While this inconsistency may not be evident for the particular fake size tag used in the image illustration as it is topmost quality for a fake, it can still occur on other versions of replicas.
So if this text is not well spaced out as in the authentic size tag on your sneakers, then you are most definitely dealing with a fake Yeezreel pair.
3 – The ART Number
As always, keep an eye out for inconsistent text here. You will notice that the “3” is higher than the rest on the text on the fake tag.
Also, the “A” in “ART” on the fake tag has this jagged appearance which looks quite different from the “A” in the original Ultraboost size tag.
4 – The Adidas Copyright ®
On the authentic size tag, you will notice that the ® character is well spaced out from the Adidas text.
However, this is not the case for the fake size tag where the ® character is sitting on top of the “s” in “Adidas”. This is as a result of ink pooling, a sign of poor print quality on fakes.
For the second step of the fake vs real Ultraboost guide, we are going to flip the Adidas sneakers to the rear side and inspect the shape of these.
It is visible in the fake vs real Adidas Ultraboost image above how, on the fake Adidas Ultraboost sneakers, the overall shape in the middle side of the sneakers is too fat and too massive.
On the other hand, the authentic Ultraboost sneakers have their shape from the rear angle looking thinner and less fat than the shape of the replica Ultraboost sneakers.
As for the second step of the fake vs real Ultraboost sneakers legit check guide, we will let you know how to spot the fake Adidas sneakers just by looking at the shape of the toe box area.
As you can see in the real vs fake Adidas Ultraboost images above, the counterfeit Ultraboost sneakers have their toe box looking a lot more deflated than the toe box of the legit sneakers.
In fact, the authentic sneakers’ toe box area looking more arched and lifted up, while the fake Ultraboost sneakers have their toe box looking less curvy and smaller.
As for the fourth step of the guide on how to spot fake Ultraboost sneakers, you’ll have to analyze the “ultra boost” text printed on the rear side of the shoes.
In order to easily learn how to spot fake Adidas Ultraboost sneakers by looking at the text on the side of the shoes, we’ll first have a look at the image below so that you’d visualize the flaws on the fake shoes easier.
In the fake vs real Adidas Ultraboost image above, we have pointed out the fact that on the counterfeit Ultraboost sneakers, the “ultra boost” text is a lot thicker than the text on the legit pairs.
This flaw is the most visible on the letter “a”, which on the fake sneakers is thicker on the vertical leg than the one on the authentic sneakers, and on the letter “s” which is obviously a lot thicker than the one on the authentic Ultraboost sneakers.
This problem appears on the fake sneakers due to the amount of paint that is filled into the letters, and almost every time, turning them into looking too thick on the fake Adidas Ultraboost pairs.
For the fifth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Adidas Ultraboost sneakers, we will have to turn the lights off and turn the flashlight on in order to reveal the 3M reflective material on the tongue of the Ultraboost sneakers.
The main problem on the replica Adidas Ultraboost sneakers is that they don’t glow properly, as the only look lighten up just a bit, while the authentic Jordans have a more powerful reflectiveness.
In this case, you can see how the replica Adidas Ultraboost sneakers have their 3M reflecting areas looking less defined than the authentic sneakers’ reflective parts.
