This real vs fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone legit check guide will teach you everything you need to know in order to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers.

Along with every step of our guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Ash Stone sneakers, we are going to link reference real vs fake Yeezy Ash Stone images, and these images will make the authentication job easier.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers is to look at their size tags. There’s no situation whether the replica Yeezy Ash Stone pairs don’t present any flaws, because the fake Ash Stone Yeezys always have their text on the size tag at the wrong thickness, while the authentic pairs never have such flaws.

How to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone

Step 1: Real vs fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone barcode scan

We are going to begin the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers with the barcode, and we’re going to look it up on the search engines.

The barcode of your Yeezy Ash Stone sneakers 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 Ash Stones 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:

  • Colorway – ASHSTO/ASHSTO/AHSTO (GW0089)
  • Style – 350 V2
  • Size – From 4 to 17 (US)

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

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 Ash Stone’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.

Step 2: Examine the size tag inside your Yeezy Ash Stone

Moving forward to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers, we are going to have a look at the fake vs real Yeezy Ash Stone pairs for their size tags.

As we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the size tag as the best way to spot fake Yeezy 350 V2 Ash Stone, so we recommend that you always check the size tag on the Ash Stones.

fake vs authentic yeezy ash stone

In the picture with the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers above, we have pointed out quite a few flaws on the fake Yeezys, and we are now going to explain each one of these individually.

1 – The “MADE IN VIETNAM” text

The first flaw which we’ve spotted on the fake Yeezys can be found at the top of the label, and we’re talking about the first line of text on the size tag.

Looking at the fake pair’s “MADE IN VIETNAM” text, you can see how it looks too thin, and how the real pair’s text looks thicker.

On top of that, the fake pair’s “MADE IN VIETNAM” text has too much space between its letters, while the authentic text has its letters placed closer to each other.

2 – 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 Ash Stone 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.

3 – The “adidas ®” text

Moving forward to the third flaw on the fake shoes, we’re now talking about the “adidas ®” text which looks too thin.

On the other hand, the retail pair’s “adidas ®” inscriptions looks thicker and more defined than the one seen on the fake pair.

4 – The hashtag and the numbers

The fourth flaw which we’ve spotted on the replica Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers is about the hashtag and the numbers on the second last line of text.

Looking at the fake pair’s numbers, you can see how they look too thick and too big, while the authentic pair’s numbers are thinner and smaller.

5 – The date of manufacturing the Ash Stone Yeezys

Moving to the fake pair’s “12/20” inscription, you can see how the text is just too thin and how it is improperly printed on the size tag.

On the other hand, the authentic 350 V2 Ash Stone’s size tag has the “12/20” text looking thicker and more defined.

6 – The “US UK FR JPN CHN” text

For the sixth and the last flaw that we’ve spotted on the fake Yeezy’s size tag, we’ll talk about the fake vs real Yeezy Ash Stone pairs for their “US UK FR JP CHN” text.

The fake pair’s size tag has the “US UK FR JP CHN” text looking too thin, and since the letters are too thin, they are automatically placed too far away from each other.

On the other hand, the real pair’s size tag has its “US UK FR JP CHN” text thicker, and at the same time, the letters on the real tag are placed closer to each other.

Step 3: Look at the boost sole of your Yeezy 350 V2 Ash Stone

Moving to the third method on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers, we are now going to have a look at the fake vs real Yeezy Ash Stone pairs for their boost soles.

The boost sole is yet another one of the very best ways to spot fake Yeezy Ash Stone pairs, so let’s have a look how to differentiate these on the real and the fake pairs.

In the picture with the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers above, we have pointed out how the fake Yeezys have their boost sole’s pellets looking too sharp and somewhat thicker than what they should actually be.

Looking at the real Yeezy Ash Stone pair’s boost sole, you can see how the pellets look less sharp and how they are thinner than the ones seen on the fake Yeezys.

In the image with the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone shoes above, we have pointed out how the fake pair’s pellets have the wrong alignment on the actual boost material.

By that, we mean that the replica 350 V2 Ash Stone’s pellets on the boost sole have this sort of a mathematical position, and if you look closely, you’ll notice how the fake pellets are actually aligned perfectly one with the other.

On the other hand, the legit Yeezy Ash Stone pair’s pellets on the boost sole have a randomized look: all of the pellets are crooked and they don’t sit perfectly parallel with each other, unlike the fake ones.

In the picture above, you can see another example of a top-quality version of the fake Yeezy Ash Stone’s boost sole.

Step 4: Analyze the laces of your Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone

For the fourth method on how to legit check Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers, we are going to have a look at the fake vs real Yeezy Ash Stone pairs for their laces.

The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone pairs that came out of the authentic factories have a specific lacing pattern which they must follow, and right now we’re going to look at it.

yeezy ash stone authentication guide

The picture with the authentic vs replica Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers above shows you how the fake Yeezys have their laces “inverted”, as we call the fake shoes that don’t have their laces correctly attached.

The authentic shoes must have the following pattern for their laces: on the left shoe, the left lace has to go beneath the one on the right side, and on the right shoe, the lace from the right side has to below the one on the left side.

If that wasn’t so clear, no worries. We’ve got you covered with this fake vs Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone image below that will tell you this problem more detailed.

fake vs real yeezy ash stone

In the image with the fake vs real Yeezy boost 350 V2 Ash Stone shoes above, you can see how the authentic pair follows the right pattern mentioned above.

On the other hand, the fake Yeezy shoes have their laces improperly attached – we call this flaw the “inverted laces”, where the laces are not attached correctly.

Please remember that this flaw applies only to the deadstock pairs (unworn, in the factory condition) and to the pairs where we are 100% sure that they didn’t have their laces removed or swapped and attached in the wrong manner.

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.

Step 5: Fake vs real Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone box label

As for the fifth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers, we are going to look at the box label of the fake vs real Yeezy Ash Stone 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.

Yeezy Clay Box 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.

Step 6: Authenticate the look of the toe box on your Ash Stone 350 V2s

As for the sixth step of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers, let’s have a quick look at the shoes from the profile sides.

More precise, we are going to look at the fake vs real Yeezy Ash Stone pairs from the side, but we’re actually going to focus on their front sides, at the toe boxes.

authentic vs replica yeezy ash stone 350 v2

The picture with the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers above shows you how the fake pair’s toe box is too little curvy and how its front edge is too close to the ground.

On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy Ash Stone pair’s toe box is curvier and it is further away from the ground at its front tip.

Step 7: Analyze the opening of the tongue on your Yeezys

Moving forward to the seventh step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone sneakers, we are going to have a look at the fake vs real Yeezy Ash Stone pairs for their opening of the tongue.

Precisely, we are actually talking about how wide the shape of the tongue son the fake vs real Ash Stonet 350 V2s is.

yeezy ash stone real vs replica

The picture with the fake vs authentic Yeezy Ash Stone pairs above shows you how the fake pair’s tongue is too wide, and how it is shaped kin of like a ramp.

On the other hand, the authentic Yeezys have their opening of the tongue narrower, as their shape isn’t as wide and large as the one seen on the fake 350 V2 pair.

How can I spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Ash Stone in 60 seconds?

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.

There are situations where you may be unable to go through each detailed step explained above when you need to authenticate your Yeezy Boost V2 Ash Stone.

That is why we have compiled this quick 60 seconds solution to authenticating your sneakers. Below are the top 7 indicators that can help you determine if you have a fake pair of sneakers or original Adidas manufactured V2 Ash Stone.

  1. Make sure to scan the barcode of your Yeezys. If the results don’t match the model, colourway and size of your sneakers, then you are most likely looking at a fake pair
  2. Check the size tag inside each of your Yeezy pairs. The replica Ash Stone 350 V2s commonly have their inscriptions too thick or really thin
  3. Verify the boost sole of your Yeezys, because most of the fake Yeezys have their boost sole’s pellets improperly detailed
  4. Look at the way that the laces are attached to your shoes, because the replica pairs usually tend to have their laces inverted
  5. Inspect the inscription on the box label of your Yeezy 350 V2s. In some cases, the fake pairs have their “V10”, “V02” or “V03” inscription wrong according to their region
  6. Check the toe box of your shoes, as most of the replica Yeezy pairs have their toe box too thick and too little curvy
  7. Examine the opening of the tongue on your Yeezys, as the replica pairs tend to have their tongue’s opening less wide than the authentic pairs’ tongues
