How to spot fake Yeezy 350 Mono Clay

To spot fake Yeezy 350 Mono Clay, make sure you check the size tag.

Fake Yeezys often have inaccuracies in the font-weight and kerning of the text on the size tag.

1. Size tag

  • Authentic:
    1. The “MADE IN CHINA” print is thicker and more defined.
    2. The date of manufacturing’s text is thicker.
    3. The “US UK FR JP CHN” inscription is thinner.
  • Fake:
    1. The “MADE IN CHINA” print is too thin.
    2. The date of manufacturing’s text is too thin.
    3. The “US UK FR JP CHN” inscription is too thick.

2. Boost sole

2.1. Best fake

  • Authentic: The pellets on the boost sole have a randomized pattern, appearing chaotically placed.
  • Fake: The pellets on the boost sole are positioned in a straight, parallel, and mathematically oriented pattern, lacking the randomization seen on authentic pairs.

2.2. Mid fake

  • Authentic: The pellets on the boost sole have a smoother texture, blending in more with the background foam.
  • Fake: The pellets on the boost sole appear sharper and less integrated with the background foam, standing out more.

2.3. Low fake

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.

3. Lacing

  • Authentic: On the left shoe, the lace from the left side goes beneath the one from the right side. On the right shoe, the lace from the right side goes beneath the one from the left side.
  • Fake: On the left shoe, the lace from the left side goes above the one from the right side, which is incorrect.

Here’s a closer picture:

This only works for:

  • Brand new pairs
  • And those where you’re 100% certain the laces weren’t replaced

4. Box label

To distinguish between the US and international versions of Yeezy V2 sneakers, follow these key points:

  • US Version: Features three sizes on the label – US, UK, and F. The US size is in large print, while the other two are in smaller prints below it. The serial number ends with V02 or V03.
  • International Version: Displays six countries’ sizes (US, UK, F, D, J, and CHN), and all six of them are in equal prints on the label. The serial number ends with V10.

Any deviation from these patterns indicates a fake:

  • Such as a US version with a serial number ending in V10.
  • Like in the example above.

5. Toe box

  • Authentic: The toe box is less curvy and closer to the ground.
  • Fake: The toe box is excessively curvy and lifts up too soon.

6. Stitching

  • Authentic: The middle stitching appears thinner because the stitches are less deeply embedded in the fabric.
  • Fake: The stitching is too deep, with threads visibly sunk into the shoes.

7. Midsole

  • Authentic: The authentic Mono Clays have a more transparent midsole, making the boost material more visible.
  • Fake: The sole is too opaque, with minimal visibility of the boost material.

Short checklist

Use this list whenever you can’t go through the full guide:

  1. Size Tag: Check the size tag inside each shoe. Replica Mono Clay 350 V2s often have inaccuracies in the font-weight of the text on the size tag, with the inscriptions appearing either too thick or too thin.
  2. Boost Sole: Examine the boost sole of your Yeezys. Authentic pairs typically have well-detailed boost pellets, while counterfeit versions tend to have improperly detailed boost pellets.
  3. Laces: Inspect the way the laces are attached to your shoes. Fake pairs often have their laces inverted or improperly attached compared to genuine Yeezys.
  4. Box Label: Look at the inscription on the box label of your Yeezy 350 V2s. Sometimes, fake pairs may have incorrect inscriptions like “V10,” “V02,” or “V03” according to their region.
  5. Toe Box: Check the toe box of your sneakers. Replica Yeezy pairs may have a toe box that appears too curvy compared to the authentic version.
  6. Middle Stitching: Closely examine the middle stitching on your Yeezys. Fake pairs may have middle stitching that is set too deep inside the fabric, whereas authentic pairs have properly aligned stitching.
  7. Midsole Opacity: Inspect the opacity of the midsole on the back of your Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Mono Clay sneakers. Fake pairs may reveal too little of the boost material, so ensure it matches the authentic version in terms of visibility.

By carefully examining these aspects, you can better determine the authenticity of your Yeezy 350 V2 Mono Clay shoes.
