2. Size tag

  • Authentic:
    1. “Made In China” label has precise, well-defined printing.
    2. The black separating line on the size tag is solid and uninterrupted.
    3. “US UK FR JP CHN” text is evenly spaced between the lines above and below.
    4. Size numbers on the third row have consistent text with no ink blotting or stains.
    5. The printing quality on APE/CLU/EVN and square prints is clear and defined.
    6. Adidas text under the square is legibly printed, with consistent rounding in the letters.
    7. All characters in the F serial number and ART number are precise without blotting.
    8. Manufacturer date print is bold.
  • Fake:
    1. The “Made In China” text might appear blurry or undefined.
    2. There might be a thin white line on the black separating line.
    3. Spacing issues might occur around the “US UK FR JP CHN” text.
    4. Ink blotting may be visible in the size numbers.
    5. Inconsistencies in the APE/CLU/EVN number, square, Adidas, F serial, and ART number prints might be due to poor printing quality.
    6. The manufacturer date print might not be as bold.

3. Box label

  • Authentic:
    • US version of the box label displays three-country sizes (US, UK, F) with US size in large print.

    • US release serial number ends with V02 or V03; international releases end with V10.
  • Fake:

4. Lacing

  • Authentic:
    • On the right shoe, both right and left laces should be underneath when viewed from a top-down perspective.
  • Fake:
    • Laces may be incorrectly assembled, with the left lace under the right shoe and the right lace under the left shoe.

Note: This indicator is more reliable for unworn pairs, as laces can be reconfigured on worn sneakers.

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. Midsole

  • Authentic:
    • The sole of the 350 V2 Yeezy Yeezreel allows light to pass through,…
    • Making the boost sole visible.
  • Fake:
    • The sole may appear more opaque…
    • Preventing light from shining through and making the boost sole less visible.

6. Reflectiveness

  • Authentic: Displays a noticeable glow in photos due to quality 3M material.
  • Fake: Has diminished glow in photos, likely using inferior 3M material to save costs.

7. Tongue

  • Authentic: The shoe’s tongue has a specific peak height, affecting the overall structure of the Yeezy Yeezreel.
  • Fake: Fake models often have taller tongues, altering the sneaker’s intended structure and appearance.

8. Boost sole

8.1. Best fake

  • Authentic:
    • Boost sole pellets have a consistent, “bubbly” appearance with little differentiation between pellets.
    • Striped circles on the pellets are well-defined.
  • Fake:
    • The shape of the boost pellets may vary, lacking the uniform, “bubbly” look seen in authentic versions.
    • The striped circles may also lack definition.

8.2. Medium fake

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

8.3. Lower fake

  • Authentic:
    • While some authentic pairs may exhibit a “mathematical” order of striped circles, variations and rotations in the pattern are expected due to quality control.
  • Fake:
    • Fake boost soles typically display a consistent, unvaried pattern of striped circles, as they are mass-produced without attention to the subtle variations seen in authentic pairs.

9. Toe box

  • Authentic:
    • Toe box sits flatter…
    • Leading to a lower angle between the sole and the ground, maintaining the intended sneaker structure.
  • Fake:
    • Toe box appears more inflated…
    • Creating a different structure and a noticeably incorrect angle between the sole and the ground.

10. Stitching

  • Authentic:
    • Features narrower stitching with a specific structure, using finer threads.
  • Fake:
    • Stitching is noticeably wider with thicker threads, differing from the structure of genuine sneakers.

11. Insole

Here are the adidas x YEEZY logos.

  • Authentic:
    • Insole text is finer and closely packed, as evidenced by the spacing between the letters.
  • Fake:
    • Text on the insole is thicker with letters appearing more spaced out, making characters like “Y” visibly larger than on the authentic pair.

  2. Examine the size tag for any inconsistencies in the printing quality.

  7. Ensure that the toe box is not unusually inflated.
  8. Check the opening of the sneakers to see if it’s not too wide.
  9. Confirm that the color of the sole is bright and vibrant for authentic sneakers.
