We think that you’re here because you are a sneakerhead, and when you buy your items, you want to know whether the fake vs real. In fact, you may be here to know how to spot fake Yeezy Antlia sneakers.

Today, we are here with another guide on how to spot fake vs real Yeezy Antlia sneakers just in nine steps to mark on your fake vs real Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia sneakers list.

We would like to say how the stitching is the most reliable spot to look at when checking the fake vs real Antlia Yeezy sneakers because the stitching is usually flawed the most by the replica manufacturers.

Without any further ado, let’s have a look at the proper guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Antlia sneakers.

The quickest way to check for authenticity on your Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia is by inspecting the size tag and the box label of the sneakers.

The fake size tag features many inconsistencies while the box label may display an incorrect size code that doesn’t match the version of your sneakers.

How to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia Reflective and Non-Reflective

Although the size tag and the box label are the two main indicators of authenticity that you would find on the V2 Antlia, they are not the only indicators present on the sneakers.

That is why we have created this comparison guide, featuring 10 indicators embedded with images to help you identify how authentic your sneakers are.

At the bottom of this detailed real vs fake Yeezy Antlia guide, you will find a quick 10 step fast solution to identifying a fake pair of Yeezy Boost V2 Antlia.

So let’s proceed to the steps to take when authenticating your sneakers to ensure you do not end up with a replica of the original sneakers.

Step 1: Scan the barcode of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia

When fake manufacturers try to replicate the Yeezy V2 Antlia, they are typically more focused on recreating the design of the sneakers with almost little to no attention paid to elements like the barcode.

This makes the barcode a reliable indicator of authenticity that can help you ensure you only purchase the original Adidas manufactured sneakers.

When you are ready to scan the barcode of your Yeezy V2 Antlia, we recommend that you use the Legit Check App.

When you scan the barcode using the Legit Check App, the app will run your unique barcode against other Yeezy sneakers online. Note that all Yeezy sneakers have a unique barcode that relates to a specific combination of:

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

How do you scan your Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia using the Legit Check App?

First of all, you’ll have to install the Legit Check App on your iOS and/or Android device.

Once you are ready to scan, tap on the barcode scan icon and focus in on the barcode on the box of your Yeezy 350 Antlia.

The results are where you will need to apply your intelligence. You will need to look for matches that confirm the authenticity status of your Yeezy Boost V2 Antlia.

Now, if the results show lots of confirmation points on Google for your unique barcode as illustrated in the picture below, then you can be assured that your box is authentic.

Please note that we say the box is authentic and not the sneakers because there is still the possibility that the real sneakers might have been swapped for the fake ones by the fake resellers to trick buyers into thinking the sneakers are genuine.

On the other hand, if the results do not show confirmation points that match the size-colorway combination, as shown in the picture below, then you probably have a fake in your hands.

Please note that the barcode scanning can only be considered a perfect match when the size and colorway combination on the results match the one on the box.

Thus, if only one of the two matches, then the box is still a fake. For the full story on how to scan the barcode on the box or your V2 Antlia for authenticity, read our article here.

Step 2: Real vs fake Yeezy Antlia size tag

The size tag, although considerably small in size features many discrepancies that can serve as indicators of the authenticity status of the V2 Antlia.

Nonetheless, it is necessary to understand that different colorways in the Yeezy Boost V2 line have different misprints on their size tag and what is considered an inconsistency on the Antlia colourway may not necessarily be considered as one of the Sesame, Butter, Cream or other colorways in the Yeezy-Adidas collection.

fake vs real yeezy antlia
  1. The fake letter “M” in the “MADE IN CHINA” word is too thick. Not only it, but the whole fake text, but this is the most visible on the letter “M”

2. The font is too thick and too bold on the fake Yeezys, and the surrounding lines are thicker on fake

3. The letters “A” and “P” are touching on the fake size tag, as a consequence of a thicker font, and on the legit pair, it is exactly the opposite

4. Very importantly, the “®” is most of the time touching adidas – instant callout for a fake. besides, different spacing between the adidas® and the square above. In our case, you can notice how the fake “adidas” text and the “®” elements are too thick

5.  The character has is too thin on the fake pair, and on the legit pair, it is thicker

6. The same problem is for the “5” and the “9”: the fake Yeezys have these numbers looking too thick and without the correct shape

7. If “MALE/MALE” is missing, there’s nothing to worry about. we won’t base our guide on whether this line appears or not

Step 3: Real vs fake Yeezy Antlia box label

Next, you will proceed to inspect the box label of your V2 Antlia. On the box label, there are two main confirmation points you should look out for; the country size code and the serial number. So how does this work?

Now, it is important to understand that the Yeezy-Adidas collaboration releases its sneakers in two versions – the US version and the international version.

The US version displays three-country sizes on the box label – US, UK and F. Here, the US size is in large print, while the other two sizes featured under the US size and in smaller prints.

The international version of the V2 Antlia, on the other hand, features 6 countries (US, UK, F, D, J, and CHN) sizes and every one of them is in equal prints on the label.

On the bottom right-hand corner of the box label is the serial number. If the pair is a US release, then the serial number is going to end with a V02 or V03. But for international (Canadian/European) releases, the serial number will end with a V10.

As seen in the image below, in the authentic international version featuring 6 sizes, the serial number ends with a V10. However, on the fake box label which is a US version, the serial number ends with a V10, as opposed to a V02 or V03.

Please note that if you notice any deviation from this pattern, then you are without a doubt looking at a fake V2 Antlia.

Step 4: Fake vs real Antlia Yeezy lacing style

Next, you will need to inspect the lacing pattern of your Antlia V2. Please note that every sneaker released by Adidas as part of the Yeezy-Adidas collection all come with one particular lacing style.

This lacing style follows a simple pattern; the left lace goes under the right lace in the left shoe and the right lace goes under the left lace in the right shoe. 

antlia real vs fake

If your lacing style does not correspond with this pattern when you first unbox your sneakers, then you certainly have a fake product in your hands. 

However, it is important to understand that following the correct lacing pattern does not always mean the sneakers is authentic either.

antlia real vs fake

This is because the fake manufacturer can choose to lace their sneakers to mimic the authentic pattern although it is a replica.

Thus, we do not consider this to be a foolproof indicator of authenticity.

Step 5: Verify the boost sole of your Antlias

For the fifth step of the real vs fake Yeezy Antlia authentication process, you will inspect the boost sole of your sneakers.

The top indicator of authenticity here is the bubbliness of the boost sole. If the boost of your sneakers seems slightly rigid, then it could be that you have a fake.

Also, you will notice that there is less differentiation between the boost pellets on the authentic Yeezy Boost V2 Antlia and the striped circles are better defined.

While the striped circles appear to be randomly generated to the genuine sneakers, on the fakes you will notice a mathematical pattern to the circles.

Step 6: Inspect the shape of your Yeezys

The shape of your sneakers is a reliable tell of its authenticity whenever you want to differentiate a fake Yeezy Antlia from the real one.

Every colorway in the Yeezy Boost V2 collection comes in one unique silhouette and any slight deviation from the shape might be all you need to tell if it is a replica or not.

real vs fake yeezy

On the replica of the V2 Antlia pair, you will notice that the shoe’s opening is wider and they may appear to have a different structure from what’s on the authentic pair.

To help you better understand this, take a look at the sock liner and the angle from the bottom of the tongue.

Next, pay close attention to the “peak” of the tongue and the authentic shoes curve differently from the fake ones.

You will notice that while the authentic pair curves significantly more upwards, the fakes have a somewhat flatter shape.

Step 7: Fake vs real Yeezy Antlia toe box

The toe box is where the toes fit in. As shown in the picture below, you will notice that the toe box is significantly bulkier on the fake pair when compared to the slender toe box of the authentic pair.

This difference can be attributed to the poor attention to detail from the fake manufacturers as well as the lower quality factory equipment used in the production of the sneakers.

Step 8: Check the middle stitching on your Yeezys

Next, you will need to inspect the middle stitching on your Yeezy Boost Antlia.

We have inserted two pictures of the front and rear view of the middle stitching to help you understand what you are supposed to be looking at.

yeezy stitching real vs fake

For the first picture which shows the front view of the stitching, you can see that on the fake, the structure of the stitching is different from that of the genuine sneakers.

Also, the threads are thicker and the stitching is noticeably wider on the fakes compared to the narrower stitching on the original.

On the rear side of the Yeezy Antlia, as seen in the second picture, the inconsistency in the stitching is still very much present, appearing to be weaker and narrower on the fake Yeezy Antlia.

real vs fake yeezy

You will find this step to be a very easy way of spotting a fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia as it can be observed with the naked eye.

Step 9: Fake vs real Yeezy Antlia 3M shininess

Both the Yeezy Antlia reflective and the Yeezy Antlia Non-Reflective pairs will have 3M (a retro-reflective silver material that glows brightly in low levels of light) materials on the laces.

However, not surprisingly, the fake pairs will commonly use a replicated 3M material, which in consequence causes the shine to be less bright than the original pair. 

Why does this happen? Yet again, this will be to save on costs as the fake 3M material costs more than the standard one — a decision where replica Yeezy Antlia manufacturers will compromise.

As you can see in the picture above, the authentic pair has more of a glow to it when photographed. Although this information applies to both types of shoes, this is just the Yeezy Antlia Non-Reflective fake vs real comparison that we’ve attached.

Understanding that your case will likely be the same (the light conditions won’t match the authentic example we’ve given), we’ve attached this example to discuss it.

As you can see, the differences in shine on the fake vs real Yeezy Antlia pair can be spotted in terms of alignment.

The fake pairs seem to have more of a random distribution of reflective material, while the authentic one seems to have it well-aligned.

The lines are pretty straight and mathematically aligned on the real Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia Reflective example.

Step 10: Real vs fake Yeezy Antlia insole

The insole of your sneakers features several inconsistencies that can help you differentiate a fake from an original.

  • Adidas Trefoil Logo Outline
fake vs real yeezys

On the rear of the insole is the Adidas Trefoil logo. Here, the first thing you should pay attention to is the embossment of the logo.

You will notice that the print is significantly deeper on the authentic insole, as evident in the way shadows create depth.

Also, the characters in “Adidas” are thicker on the replicas when compared to the thinner prints on the authentic.

You will also observe that there is more distance between the “Adidas” text and the outline on the fake size tag as opposed to the more compact style on the logo.

Lastly, on the authentic pair, the ® engraving is significantly deeper like the other characters. However, on the fake insole, the letter R is bigger than necessary.

  • Adidas Yeezy Text
real vs fake yeezys

As you can see in the pictures above, the replica Yeezy “adidas” text is thicker than the fake text, and this is the most visible on the letters “a” and “s”.

Also, the dot of the letter “i” is less defined on the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia pair.

  • Insole Serial Number

The serial number can be found on the side of the Yeezy V2 Antlia. Like in the Adidas-Yeezy text, on the fake insole, the text is slightly thicker than it is on the original and as a result, you will notice reduced spacing between letters. This is especially evident in the dash character between 5 and 9.

Step 11: Real vs fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia Reflective stripe length

Please note that this flaw only applies to the Yeezy Antlia Reflective pairs.

Whereas all the other flaws apply to both versions (Reflective and Non-Reflective), this is the only step in our exhaustive comparison that only applies to the fully reflective version.

yeezy legit check

As you can see, the stripe found on the authentic Yeezy 350 V2 Antlia stops within a decent amount of space before the toe caps of the sneaker pair, so as to reveal more 3M reflective material.

However, fake Yeezy Antlia Reflective maintains the same pattern found on the Non-Reflective version, which has this stripe ending pretty close to the extreme end of the sneaker.

Make sure you keep an eye out for this flaw, as any Reflective pair that has a very long stripe is a mismatch found only on fake pairs.

Step 12: Inspect how translucent the sole of the Yeezy Antlia pair is

Looking at the sole is another simple tell that works on most fakes of the Yeezy Antlia.

This might be hard to spot without the comparison pics, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Let us highlight the flaw first:

antlia yeezy fake vs real


Looking at the colour of the sole on the 350 V2 in question, you will notice that the replica Yeezy Antlia may be more opaque. In other words, less light goes through the sole, thus the boost sole is not as visible.

You could even compare your shoe to this image in similar lighting and see which shoe matches up with your own pair.

It’s important to stress that it might be difficult to spot some of these differences without our comparison images. To the untrained eye, nothing might look amiss even if you put a fake and real pair side by side.

We understand how it might be difficult for you to spot some of these differences without having a fake and real pair next to each other.

That is we recommend that you download our app, where we organized all this information (along with other fake vs real guides for streetwear items) properly so that you will be able to pull up this visual comparison fast.

How can I spot vs fake Yeezy Antlia Reflective or Non-Reflective in 60 seconds?

If you want to see whether your Yeezy Antlias are real but you are in a rush, here are the quickest ways to tell a real from a fake. This may be helpful for in-person meetings, where you need to know whether a pair is real or not quickly.

  1. Firstly, look at the shape of the shoe and make sure the tongue isn’t too long.
  2. Look at the laces and make sure that on the right shoe, the right side of the lace goes underneath, and on the left shoe, the left side goes underneath. Note: this assumes a top-down view, as if you’re wearing the shoes.
  3. Have a close look at the size tag so see if you can spot out any inconsistencies, like the ones described in this article’s fake vs real Yeezy Antlia comparison.
  4. Take a picture of the laces with the flash on, as an authentic version should have a clear glow from the 3M material.
  5. If it is the reflective version that we’d be buying, make sure the length of the stripe wasn’t too long, leaving a decent amount of space at the front.
  6. Check the reflectiveness of the 3M sides. Usually, the fake shoes are less shiny.
  7. Inspect the overall shape of the Yeezys. Most of the time, the fake Yeezys are less curved or too curved on the tongue area
  8. Analyze the boost sole of your sneakers. The fake pellets are usually off the needed shape
  9. Analyze the insole of your Yeezys. Mostly, the fake insoles have the rear logo looking out of shape because it is usually too arched and the “R” character is too close to the Adidas logo. Then, the “adidas YEEZY” text is usually too thick, curvy and out of shape, and the serial number text on the side of the insole is too thin
  10. Inspect the opacity of the sole. Most of the time, the fake shoes are less opaque and you can see too much through them
  11. Check the length of the stripe. Any Reflective pair that has a very long stripe is a mismatch found only on fake pairs
