This guide addresses the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia.

Both the Reflective & Non-Reflective colorways can be legit checked with this guide.

Let’s begin!

How to spot fake Yeezy Antlia

The fastest way to spot fake Yeezy Antlia is to look at the text written on the the size tag and on the box’s label.

Fake ones often show inconsistencies, such as incorrect size codes on the box label.

1. Barcode

All authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V2s have unique data:

  • Colorway – Antlia
  • Style code
    • Non-Reflective = FV3250
    • Reflective = FV3255
  • Style – 350 V2
  • Size – From 5 to 14

Look for those matches after scanning your barcode.

Speaking of which…

1.1. How to scan

It’s easy! Follow these steps:

  1. Download the Legit Check App
  2. Tap the Barcode scanner (at the top of the app)
  3. Have a look at your Antlia’s barcode

Here comes the fun.

Let’s check the results!

1.1. Authentic

Right, that’s a perfect barcode. It matches all checks:

  • Yeezy Boost 350 V2
  • Antlia
  • Non-Reflective
  • FV3250
  • Size US12 (see UK11.5 results as well)


Let’s go to the fake as well.

1.3. Fake

No results… Ouch!

  • This means the barcode is 100% fake.
  • We should’ve gotten matches for style/colorway/size/SKU
  • Instead, we get nothing.

All authentic barcode should match all of the unqiue details.

2. Size tag

1. Text Thickness in “MADE IN CHINA” Label

  • Authentic: Text is appropriately bold, with the “M” not being overly thick.
  • Fake: The “M” and generally all text tend to be too thick and bold.

2. Font and Line Thickness

  • Authentic: Maintains a standard and moderate thickness in the font and surrounding lines.
  • Fake: Showcases a notably thicker and bolder font and lines.

3. Letter Spacing in “A” and “P”

  • Authentic: Ensures a clear separation between the letters “A” and “P”.
  • Fake: The letters “A” and “P” seem to cozy up a bit too much, touching each other.

4. “®” Symbol and “adidas” Text Spacing

  • Authentic: Keeps a clean and proper spacing with a moderate thickness in the text and “®” symbol.
  • Fake: Not maintaining personal space – the “®” often touches “adidas”, and the text seems a bit too thick.

5. “â…”” Character Boldness

  • Authentic: Ensures the “â…”” character has a robust and thicker presence.
  • Fake: Seems a little underwhelming with the “â…”” character appearing too thin.

6. Numerical Characters “5” and “9”

  • Authentic: Displays “5” and “9” with the accurate shape and adequate thickness.
  • Fake: Struggles to keep the numbers in shape, making them look too thick and slightly misshapen.

7. “MALE/MALE” Presence

  • Note: The appearance or absence of “MALE/MALE” is not a determinant factor in authenticity.

That’s all you need to know about the size tag.

3. Box label

This label glued on the box can also tell if the box of your Yeezys is fake.

3.1. Version

  • Authentic US Version:
    • Displays three country sizes: US (in large print), UK, and F (both in smaller prints).
  • Authentic International Version:
    • Presents sizes for six countries (US, UK, F, D, J, CHN) all in equal print.
  • Fake:
    • May present inconsistencies in the size displays for both versions.

3.2. Serial number

  • Authentic US Version:
    • Serial number should conclude with either a V02 or V03.
  • Authentic International Version:
    • Ends the serial number neatly with a V10.
  • Fake:
    • May exhibit errors like a US version ending with a V10, which is a clear deviation.

4. Lacing

Authentic Lacing Style:

  • Left Shoe: The left lace should go under the right lace.
  • Right Shoe: The right lace should travel under the left lace.

We should also take a closer look:

  • Mismatch in Lacing Pattern:
    • If the initial lacing doesn’t adhere to the specified pattern upon unboxing…
    • You’re likely dealing with a fake.
  • Correct Lacing Isn’t a Sole Authenticity Marker:
    • Even if the lacing follows the correct pattern, it doesn’t single-handedly guarantee authenticity.
    • Always conduct additional checks!

5. Boost

5.1. Best fake

  • Bubbly Boost Sole is a Good Sign:
    • Authentic: A slightly bubbly texture in the boost sole.
    • Fake: Rigid or overly stiff boost often indicates a replica.
  • Boost Pellets and Striped Circles:
    • Authentic: Distinct and well-defined striped circles and a notable differentiation between the boost pellets.
    • Fake: Lacks clear distinctions and properly defined stripe circles on the boost sole.

5.2. Medium fake

  • Authentic: Random placement of striped circles on the sole.
  • Fake: Noticeable, repetitive pattern in striped circle placement.

5.3. Low fake

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

6. Tongue

  • Authentic: The opening of the shoe is narrower and the tongue “peaks” curve notably upwards.
  • Fake: A wider shoe opening and a flatter tongue shape, not curving up as much.

7. Toe box

  • Authentic: Features a more slender and streamlined toe box, providing a sleek look and precise fit for the toes.
  • Fake: Tends to have a bulkier toe box, notably impacting the overall silhouette and possibly the comfort and fit of the sneakers.

8. Stitching

8.1. Front

  • Authentic: Features precise, narrow stitching.
  • Fake: Showcases thicker, wider stitching.

8.2. Back

  • Authentic: Stitching on the rear is consistent and robust.
  • Fake: Rear stitching appears weaker and narrower.

3. Reflectiveness

  • Authentic: Exhibits a noticeable glow and well-aligned, straight reflective material distribution.
  • Fake: Displays a more random distribution of reflective material and lacks the aligned shine of the authentic pair.

10. Insole

Let’s look at the “adidas” logo.

  • Authentic: The “adidas” text is more slender, particularly noticeable on the letters “a” and “s,” and the dot above “i” is well-defined.
  • Fake: Features thicker “adidas” text and a less defined dot on the letter “i.”

11. Stripe

This works just for the Reflective Yeezy Antlia.

  • Authentic: The stripe stops with a decent amount of space before the toe caps, revealing more 3M reflective material.
  • Fake: The stripe continues quite close to the toe cap, mimicking the pattern found on the Non-Reflective version.

12. Midsole

  • Authentic: The sole of the Yeezy 350 V2 Antlia allows light to pass through, making the boost sole visibly discernible.
  • Fake: The sole appears more opaque, limiting the visibility of the boost sole due to less light passing through.

Authenticity checklist: Yeezy 350 Antlia

If you need to quickly determine the authenticity of your Yeezy Antlia:

  1. Scan the barcode: Use the Legit Check App to verify yours.
  2. Check the Shape: Ensure the shoe’s shape is correct, particularly the length of the tongue.
  3. Inspect Laces: Verify that the laces are correctly placed, with the right side of the lace going underneath on the right shoe and vice versa.
  4. Examine Size Tag: Look closely at the size tag for any inconsistencies mentioned in this guide’s real vs. fake Yeezy Antlia comparison.
  5. Flash Test: Take a photo of the laces with the flash on. Authentic versions should exhibit a clear glow from the 3M material.
  6. Stripe Length: For reflective versions, ensure the length of the stripe is not excessively long, leaving adequate space at the front.
  7. Check Reflectiveness: Inspect the 3M sides for reflectiveness. Authentic Yeezys tend to be shinier.
  8. Shape Analysis: Examine the overall shape of the Yeezys, particularly the curvature of the tongue area.
  9. Analyze Boost Sole: Assess the shape of the boost sole, as fake pellets are often inaccurately shaped.
  10. Insole Examination: Inspect the insole for authenticity. Fake insoles may have the rear logo out of shape, thick and curvy “adidas YEEZY” text, and a poorly designed serial number text.
  11. Sole Opacity: Check the opacity of the sole; authentic pairs tend to be less transparent.
  12. Stripe Length: Be cautious of reflective pairs with excessively long stripes, as this is a characteristic of fake Yeezys.

These quick checks can help you make a faster determination.
