Useful: How to spot ANY FAKE Yeezy 350 V2.

How to spot fake Yeezy Lundmark

To spot fake Yeezy Lundmark, it’s crucial to focus on the size tag’s inscription for thickness and placement.

These two factors can help you determine whether your Yeezys are genuine or not.

1. Barcode

All authentic Yeezy 350 V2 come in a unique combination of:

Colourway – Lundmark (FU9161 & FV3254)

Style – 350 V2

US Size – From 5 to 14

Now that the style-code will differ:

  • Yeezy Lundmark Non-Reflective: FU9161
  • Yeezy Lundmark Reflective: FV3254

You’ll need to look for those matches when scanning the barcode.

1.1. How to scan

  • Download the Legit Check App.
  • Select “Barcode scanner”
  • Look up your Lundmark’s barcode.

Time to check out the results.

1.2. Authentic

  • Authentic, as everything checks out. It’s the:
  • Yeezy 350 V2, Lundmark, Non-Reflective, FU9161, Size US9.
  • Just as on the box!

This makes the barcode entirely legit.

1.3. Fake

  • Fake, as there are zero matches.
  • No style-code, colorway, size, or model information.

Replica manufacturers sometimes add random combinations of numbers that give no results.

Hence, we end up with this.

2. Size tag

  1. Fuzzy Lines & Font Size: Fake Yeezys have fuzzy lines and a taller, slightly thinner font.
  2. Font Thickness & Line Width: The font and surrounding line thickness are greater on fake pairs.
  3. Letter Spacing: The letters “A” and “P” touch on fake Lundmarks due to a thicker font.
  4. ® Placement & Spacing: The “®” touches the “adidas” text on fake pairs, and there’s different spacing between “adidas®” and the square above.
  5. â…” Character Spacing: Authentic pairs have unusual spacing around the “â…”” character, which is not seen on fakes.
  6. Letter ‘N’ Inconsistencies: There are inconsistent lines on the letter “N” in the “CHN” text on fakes.
  7. Font Style for Numbers: Fakes use a different font for the numbers “5” and “9”.
  8. “MALE/MALE” Text: The presence or absence of the “MALE/MALE” text isn’t a reliable authenticity indicator.
  9. ART or FU Text Height: The “ART” or “FU” texts are taller on authentic Yeezys.
  10. Font Thickness & Inconsistencies: Authentic pairs have a thinner font with clearer lines, while fakes show inconsistencies and fuzzy lines.
  11. Bold & Misaligned Letters: Letters are bolder and misaligned on fake Lundmarks.

3. Box label

Over here, we’ll look at the Yeezy Lundmark serial number.

Legitimate Yeezys come in two versions:

  • US box: Has 3 sizes.
  • International box: Has 6 sizes.

Below is a real vs fake comparison of two US-spec boxes.

  • Authentic:
    • Box label with 3 sizes (US, UK, F, D, J, CHN) should have a serial ending in “V10”.
    • Box label with 6 sizes (US, F, UK) should have a serial ending in “V02” or “V03”.
  • Fake:
    • Any deviation from the above serial endings, such as a US box label ending in “V10”, indicates a counterfeit product.

Still not clear? See our in-depth Yeezy box page for further guidance.

4. Lacing

  • Authentic: For the original Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Lundmark, viewing from the top down, the right lace of the right shoe should be underneath, as should the left lace of the right shoe.
  • Fake: In counterfeit examples, laces may be reversed: the left lace is beneath the right shoe, and the right lace is beneath the left shoe. Counterfeit manufacturers often misassemble one or both laces.

This flaw mainly applies to unworn pairs (deadstock).

Laces can be re-laced incorrectly over time by wearers on both authentic and fake pairs.

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.

5. Sole

  • Authentic: Sole allows more light through, revealing the boost sole clearly.
  • Fake: Sole is more opaque, obscuring the boost sole.

6. Reflectiveness

  • Authentic: Shoes have a noticeable glow with reflective material that is well-aligned and straight.
  • Fake: Shoes may glow, but the reflective material distribution appears random and not well-aligned.

7. Tongue

  • Authentic: The shoe’s tongue peak sits at a specific height, affecting the overall structure of the sneaker.
  • Fake: The tongue is often taller, altering the shoe’s structure differently than authentic models.

8. Boost sole

8.1. Best fake

  • Authentic: The boost sole has a “bubbly” appearance with little differentiation between pellets, and the striped circles are well-defined.
  • Fake: Pellets and striped circles on the boost sole may vary, lacking the defined and “bubbly” look of authentic versions.

8.2. Mid fake

  • Authentic: Striped circles on the sole are randomly distributed with no specific order.
  • Fake: Striped circles on the sole are arranged in a regular, orderly position.

8.3. Low fake

  • Authentic: Striped circles on the sole may occasionally have a mathematical order but could be rotated, showing variations.
  • Fake: Striped circles on the sole often exhibit the same pattern due to mass production without attention to variations.

9. Insole

Let’s look at the adidas x YEEZY logos.

  • Authentic: In the word “YEEZY”, the letters “Y” and “Z” are thicker.
  • Fake: The letter “i” typically has a round dot and the letters “S”, “Y”, and “Z” in “YEEZY” are too thin.

10. Stripe

The stripe’s length is what we need to check now.

This tell addresses only the Yeezy Lundmark Reflective.

Not suitable for the Non-Reflective colorway.

  • Authentic:
    • The stripe stops with enough space before the toe cap.
    • Revealing more 3M reflective material.
  • Fake:
    • The stripe ends close to the toe cap.
    • Resembling the pattern found on the Non-Reflective version, which is a mismatch found only on fake pairs.

Short on time? Use our simple checklist

If you need to quickly determine whether your Yeezy Lundmarks are authentic, especially in situations where you don’t have much time, here are some rapid checks you can perform:

  1. Shoe Shape: Examine the overall shape of the shoe, ensuring that the tongue is not excessively long.
  2. Lace Orientation: Check the laces and confirm that on the right shoe, the right side of the lace goes underneath, and on the left shoe, the left side goes underneath. This assessment is made from a top-down view, as if you were wearing the shoes.
  3. Size Tag Inspection: Take a close look at the size tag to identify any inconsistencies, referring to the details mentioned in the fake vs. real Yeezy Lundmark comparison.
  4. 3M Material: Capture a picture of the laces with the flash on. Authentic versions should exhibit a clear glow from the 3M material.
  5. Stripe Length (Reflective): If you are examining a reflective version, ensure that the length of the stripe is not excessively long, leaving an appropriate amount of space at the front.
  6. Reflectiveness: Check the reflectiveness of the 3M sides. Authentic shoes tend to have a shinier 3M material.
  7. Overall Shape: Inspect the overall shape of the Yeezys, paying attention to the curvature of the tongue area, as fake Yeezys might not match the authentic curvature.
  8. Boost Sole Examination: Analyze the boost sole of your sneakers, as fake pellets may not have the correct shape.
  9. Insole Inspection: Examine the insole of your Yeezys, particularly looking for discrepancies such as the rear logo appearing misshapen, the “adidas YEEZY” text being too thick, curvy, or out of shape, and the serial number text on the side of the insole being too thin.
  10. Stripe Length (Reflective): For reflective pairs, check the length of the stripe. An extremely long stripe is often a telltale sign of a fake pair.

These quick checks can provide you with initial insights into the authenticity of your Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Lundmark when time is of the essence.

For a more comprehensive verification, it’s advisable to perform a thorough examination.

Especially when making a significant purchase.
