Trying to learn how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Mist sneakers?
No need to worry about that anymore – this real vs fake Yeezy Mono Mist legit check guide will teach you all you need when trying to authenticate these shoes.
We are going to have an in-depth look at both the authentic vs fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Mist pairs so that by the end of the guide you will know what to look for in order to spot the fake Yeezy Mono Mist pairs.
The fastest yet easiest way to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Mist sneakers is to check the size tag inside each shoe, as well as the boost soles, because the replica Yeezy Mono Mist pairs never have their text on the size tag at the right thickness, and their boost soles often have their pellets improperly positioned. On the other hand, the real Mono Mist 350 V2s will never have any of these flaws.
We are going to begin the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Mist sneakers with the barcode, and we’re going to look it up on the search engines.
The barcode of your Yeezys can be found both on the box’s label, as well as on the white extra label which comes with the shoes.
For now, we are only going to look at the real vs fake Yeezy 350 V2 Mono Mist for their barcodes on the labels glued to their boxes.
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 V2s, 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:
The first thing you’ll have to is to download and install the Legit Check App on your device. Our app is yet available on iOS and on Android running devices.
Once you are ready to scan, tap on the barcode scan icon and focus on the barcode on the box of your Yeezy 350 V2s.
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 Yeezys.
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.
As you can see in the image above, all of the results match with the colourway, size, and product ID with the authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Mist’s box label in the image above.
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.
As you can see in the image above, the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 pair’s barcode does not match with the colourway, size, and product ID, while the authentic Yeezy does.
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 second step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Mono Mist sneakers, we are going to have a look at the sizes tag inside the real vs fake Yeezys.
As always, let’s first have a look at the reference image with the real vs replica Yeezy Mono Mist shoes.
Let us break down each flaw on the fake Yeezys individually so that we wouldn’t lose the count of these.
1 – The “MADE IN VIETNAM” text
The text which indicates the country of manufacturing the shoes is the first one on the size tag, as well as the first flawed one on the fake Yeezys.
Looking at the “MADE IN VIETNAM” main text, you can see how the fake 350 V2’s have their text too thick and placed too low, as it is too close to the long bar below.
On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Mists have their ‘”MADE IN VIETNAM” text looking thinner and placed higher from the bar below.
2 – The date of manufacturing the 350 V2s
Going just a little bit lower on the fake Yeezys, you can notice how they have their “04/20” text improperly font-weighted, as there’s a variety of font-weights right there.
First of all, on the fake Mono Mist 350s, the “04” text looks too thick, then the slash (“/”) and the number “2” look too thin, and lastly, the number “0” is too thick. At the same time, the “20” inscription is too small on the fake Yeezys
Looking at the genuine Yeezy 350 V2s, you can observe how they have the same size and font-weight for all of their characters in the “02/21” text.
3 – The appearance of the MALE/MÂLE text
Both the real and fake Yeezy 350 V2 pairs may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.
Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Mist pairs.
4 – The LHG/APE/CLU/EVN print
Please note that LHG, CLU, APE, or EVN inscriptions might be found here and you should not worry if you’ve got any of them.
All three inscriptions can be found on an authentic or a fake pair, so we do not consider this area to be a reliable spot for identifying a fake Yeezy 350 V2 Mono Mist pair.
However, what you need to pay attention to is the quality of printing here. Look out for ink blotting, fuzzy lines, and other signs of poor quality of printing.
5 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” inscription
The fifth flaw on the fake 350 V2s is about the “US UK FR JP CHN” text, and this text looks too thin and it is placed too high, as it is too close to the top black bar, as well as too far away from the bottom one.
As for the retail 350 V2s, you can notice how they have their “US UK FR JP CHN” inscription being thicker and placed perfectly in the middle of the two bars, unlike the fake Yeezys’ bars.
Now as for the third method of the guide on how to legit check Yeezy Mono Mist trainers, we now want to flip the shoes upside down, where we have to talk about the boost soles.
Precisely, we now have to care about the pellets that are placed inside triangles at the bottom side of the soles.
As you can see in the image with the fake vs real Yeezy Mono Mist pairs above, the fake pelets inside the boost sole are too sharp and generally too visible.
Looking at the real ones, you can see how they are smoother and how they are less opaque, therefore being pretty much just one with the rest of the foam of the boost.
That aside, you can also can see how the fake pair has its pellets on the boost sole being mathematically orientated and positioned.
By that, we mean that all of the pellets are positioned straightly and parallel with each other, therefore having this “mathematical” pattern.
On the other hand, the real Yeezys have their pellets more “randomised”, as the genuine pellets are placed chaotically when compared to the fake ones.
Lastly, in the image above, we have highlighted a third version of the replica Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Mist’s boost sole, where you can see how both of the flaws which we’ve previously listed are present here as well.
Moving to the fourth method of the guide on how to authenticate Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Mist, we now want to have a quick look at the lacing style of these shoes.
As we like to mention in all of our Adidas Yeezys guides of shoes that have laces, all of the shoes that come out of the genuine factories have a specific pattern they must follow.
We want to keep this simple so that everybody can easily understand it:
On the real left shoe, from the wearer’s view: the lace in the left side of the shoe has to go below the one on right side throughout each lace hole.
On the right shoe, we have the same story in the mirror: the right side’s lace has to go below the one that’s on the left side on all of the laceholes.
Basically, if you see any Yeezys with all of their tags on and in the condition which is certainly the same one from the factory having their laces the other way around, then you are definitely looking at a fake pair.
The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways to authenticate this item.
The next few steps are still reliable signs of authenticity but are for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the steps we’ve explained above to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.
As for the fifth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Mist sneakers, we are going to look at the box label of the fake vs real Yeezy Mono Mist sneakers.
When inspecting the label, there are two things you should look out for – the size and the serial number on the box.
First off, all sneakers in the Yeezy V2 line are released in two versions – the US version and the international version.
The US version features three sizes on the label – US, UK, and F. While the US size are in large print, the other two are in smaller prints under it.
The international version of the sneakers displays 6 countries (US, UK, F, D, J, and CHN) sizes and all 6 of them are in equal prints on the label.
Now regarding the serial number, if it is a US version, the serial number is supposed to end with a V02 or V03. However, the international (Canadian/European) versions end with a V10.
Any deviation from this pattern is an obvious sign that you are dealing with a fake product.
As seen in the image below, the authentic label which is an international version has a serial number that ends with V10 as opposed to the fake one which ends with a V10 despite being a US version.
Let’s move to the profile side of the Mono Mists in oder to check their toe boxes.
In most of the cases, you will see fake Yeezy Mono Mist pairs that have their toe box at the wrong inflation level and curviness.
In the image with the real vs fake Yeezy Mono Mist pairs above, you can see how the fake pair’s toe box is too thin, as it has this sort of deflated look. At the same time, the fake toe box is too curvy.
On the other hand, the genuine Yeezy Mono Mist pair’s toe box looks thicker and inflated more than the fake one, a well curvier than the replica toe box.
Proceeding to the seventh way of the guide on how to authenticate Yeezy Mono Mist sneakers, we are going to go back to a top-down view angel of the shoes.
Here we want to look at the middle stitching line which basically connects the left and the right upper sides of the real vs fake Yeezy Mono Mists.
You can observe how the fake pair’s stitching is too improperly done as there is a lack of threads added into the stitching line, therefore the fake Yeezys have a stitching density that’s too low when compared to the real one.
On the other hand, you can notice how the real Yeezys have their middle stitching with more threads, as the stitching density there is way higher than the one seen on the fake pair’s line of stitches.
We’ve finally reached the eighth and also the last step of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Mist authenticity check process.
In order to have a look at the insoles, let’s hop back inside the shoes.
As you can see in the iamge above, the flaw on the fake 350 V2s is that they have their print shaded too dark, as their text is more black instead of being coloured in brown as the real pair’s text.
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.
