Unsure of your Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Hyperspace authenticity?

Let us help.

In this guide, we will:

  • Look at real vs fake images
  • Explain what original Yeezy 350 V2 look like
  • And show you the best replicas.

There’s no time to waste. Let’s go!

How to tell fake Yeezy 350 V2 Hyperspace

The size tag’s inscriptions are the most efficient method to verify the authenticity of your Yeezy Hyperspace.

Fake size tags often exhibit numerous inconsistencies.

1. Barcode

All real pairs of Yeezy Hyperspace come with the following details:

  • Colorway – Hyperspace EG7491
  • Style – 350 V2
  • Size – From 5 to 14

1.1. How to scan

  • Open the Legit Check App
  • Click “Barcode scanner”
  • Put your camera in front of the box

After that, time to analyze the results

1.2. Authentic

  • Real because the right shoe comes up:
  • Yeezy, 350 V2, Hyerspace, EG7491, Size US11.

All of the details match our shoes.

1.3. Fake

  • Fake because no useful results come up.
  • Remember, we were looking for Yeezy Hyerspace US9.5.
  • Instead, we got:
    • Yeezy 350 V2 Static
    • Yeezy 350 V2 Oreo
    • Yeezy 350 V1 Pirate Black
    • Something about US10.5 and US6.5 Men’s sizes

Definitely not what we need. Hence, this is a 100% fake box.

Unclear? We get it, that’s why we have a more detailed Yeezy barcode guide.

2. Size tag

  • Authentic:
    1. “MADE IN CHINA” text is properly proportioned; the letter “M” is not excessively thick.
    2. Lines above and below the “US UK FR JP CHN” text are distinct and sharp, not fuzzy.
    3. “APE” text is correctly spaced, with “A” and “P” not making contact.
    4. “adidas” text and the “R” symbol are separate and don’t make contact.
    5. “ART EG7491” text is thinner and finely printed.
    6. The “19” (representing production year 2019) is correctly shaped and proportioned.
    7. “N” in “CHN” is sharp and straight with no unusual arching or angles.
  • Fake:
    1. “MADE IN CHINA” text, especially the letter “M”, is too thick.
    2. Lines above and below the “US UK FR JP CHN” text are overly thick and appear fuzzy.
    3. “APE” text is too thick, with the letters “A” and “P” inappropriately touching.
    4. “adidas” text and the “R” symbol inappropriately make contact.
    5. “ART EG7491” text is excessively thick.
    6. The number “9” in “19” is improperly shaped and too thick.
    7. The “N” in “CHN” is also overly thick, with a leg that is strangely arched and angled.

3. Box label

  • Authentic:
    • For US releases, the box label displays three sizes: US (in large print), UK, and F (both in smaller prints).
    • For international versions, the box label features sizes for six countries: US, UK, F, D, J, and CHN, all in equal print.
    • Serial numbers for US releases end with V02 or V03.
    • Serial numbers for international releases (Canadian/European) end with V10.
  • Fake:
    • The fake US version box label may inaccurately display six sizes instead of three, or the print sizes may be inconsistent.
    • Fake box labels may have serial numbers that don’t match the release version (e.g., a US version ending with V10 instead of V02 or V03).

Still not clear? Have a look at our in-depth Yeezy box label tutorial.

4. Lacing

real or fake yeezy hyperspace
  • Authentic:
    • The left shoe’s left lace goes under the right lace.
    • The right shoe’s right lace goes under the left lace.
  • Fake:
    • The lacing style does not follow the pattern described for authentic shoes upon unboxing.

Let’s look closer:

fake or real hyperspace yeezy

It’s important to note that:

  • Fake manufacturer has the option to lace their sneakers to imitate the authentic pattern.
  • Even if it’s a replica.

As a result, lacing style alone is not considered a foolproof indicator of authenticity.

5. Boost sole

5.1. Best fake

  • Authentic:
    • The boost sole has a bubbly appearance.
    • Boost pellets exhibit little differentiation.
    • Striped circles on the boost are well-defined.
  • Fake:
    • The boost appears slightly rigid.
    • There is more noticeable differentiation between boost pellets.
    • Striped circles on the boost are not as well-defined.

5.2. Mid fake

  • Authentic:
    • Striped circles appear to be randomly generated, lacking a noticeable pattern.
  • Fake:
    • Striped circles follow a discernible, mathematical pattern.

5.3. Low fake

  • Notice the “mathematical” placement of the pellets.
  • Meaning, they are all following a pattern instead of being random.

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. Shape

  • Authentic:
    • Has a narrower shoe opening.
    • Displays distinct structural features at the sock liner and the angle from the bottom of the tongue.
    • The “peak” of the tongue curves noticeably upwards.
  • Fake:
    • The shoe’s opening is notably wider.
    • Different structure observed at the sock liner and the angle from the bottom of the tongue.
    • The tongue’s “peak” exhibits a somewhat flatter shape.

7. Midsole

  • Authentic:
    • Sole appears almost translucent.
    • The outline of the boost sole is clearly and appropriately delimited.
  • Fake:
    • Sole has a more opaque look.
    • Possible irregularities in how the outline of the boost sole is delimited, often appearing slightly opaque.

8. Toe box

  • Authentic: The toe box, which houses the toes, is slender as depicted in the image below.
  • Fake: The toe box appears significantly bulkier.

9. Stitching

9.1. Front

  • Authentic: The image below shows that the authentic pair has well-structured middle stitching with wider threads.
  • Fake: The middle stitching on the fake sneaker is less structured, utilizing thinner threads.

9.2. Back

  • Authentic: The stitching on the authentic pair is denser and wider, providing a robust appearance.
  • Fake: The stitching on the fake V2 Hyperspace is weaker and narrower, showcasing inconsistency and a lack of density.

10. Pull tab

  • Authentic: Pull tab is proportionate with defined stitches.
  • Fake: Larger pull tab with less defined stitches.

11. Insole

11.1. Rear

Take off the insoles and flip them upside down to access this side.

    1. Deeper embossed Trefoil logo.

  • Fake:
    1. Shallow logo embossment.

    • Dot of letter “i” is smaller.
    • Letters “a” and “s” have appropriate thickness and arching.

11.3. Serial number

  • Authentic:
    • Text for the serial number is thinner with appropriate spacing between letters.
  • Fake:
    • Text is slightly thicker, leading to reduced spacing between letters.
    • Especially evident between the characters 5 and 9.
