To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural is to look at the size tag because fake pairs never have their inscriptions at the correct thickness. Authentic Yeezy Natural pairs are always flawless.
Are you searching for information on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural?
If so, then you are in the right place to do so, because just by reading our Yeezy 350 V2 authenticity check guide, you will easily know to easily authenticate one of these.
The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural sneakers are known as “Yeezy Abez” as well since this was supposed to be their name in the first instance.
You can tell if a pair of Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural is real or fake by checking the size tag. A fake pair always has thicker inscriptions on the size tag, while real ones have thin text.
Let’s check this out!
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 V2 Natural, 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:
The first thing you’ll have to do is to download and install the Legit Check App on your device. Our app is yet available on iOS and 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 V2 Natural.
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 Yeezy Boost V2 Natural.
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 the colourway, size, and product ID with the authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural’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 Natural’s barcode does not match 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 colourway 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.
For the full story on how to scan the barcode on the box or your V2 Natural for authenticity, read our article here.
In the image with the authentic vs replica Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural sneakers above, we have pointed out a few flaws which we are now going to individually talk about.
The real Yeezy Abez pair’s text is thinner.
This date which we are talking about highlights the month and the year in which the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural pair was manufactured.
Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural pairs.
As you may know what we are going to say, the authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural pair has its text thinner than the same inscription on the fake pair.
LHG, CLU, APE, or EVN text 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 Natural pair.
However, what you need to pay attention to is the quality of printing here:
Look out for:
On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy Abez pair has its numbers in the “1/2” character with more space from the slash in the middle, rather than the fake pair’s too little space in-between.
On the other hand, moving our eyes to the authentic Yeezy 350 V2 Natural shoes, we can easily notice how the “MADE IN CHINA” text is thinner.
Let’s flip the shoes upside down and check the boost triangle.
Now, let’s also have look at another authentic vs fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Abez image so as to visualise another boost comparison.
In the image with the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Abez shoes above:
If we look at the genuine Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Abez sneakers, you can notice how their pellets are totally visible, as they are more defined than the replica ones.
The legit Yeezy Naturals have their pellets’ positioning randomised.
All of the authentic Adidas x Kanye West “Yeezy” sneakers that provide laces must have aligned in a specific pattern.
To be clear, let’s have a look at the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural image linked below.
To be sure that it is all understandable, let’s check the more detailed fake vs real Yeezy Natural image from below.
Note: This flaw applies only to the deadstock pairs (unworn, in the factory condition) and to the pairs where we are 100% certain that didn’t have their laces swapped or replaced.
Lastly, in the image above, we have highlighted how the authentic classic Yeezy Natural laces should come – in the cardboard packaging.
As you may know, the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural come with the already-knotted plastic piece laces, but they also come with the classic ones in the cardboard highlighted above.
A quick mention:
If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.
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.
For this example, we’ve got an authentic EU version and a fake US version.
Now regarding the serial number:
Any deviation from this pattern is an obvious sign that you are dealing with a fake product.
On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy Natural sneakers have their opening on the tongue looking curvier than the fake pair’s opening.
Looking at the authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Natural shoes, you can see how their material shines in a more gentle way, as it doesn’t over-shine, just like on the fake pair, where the material is shining too bright.

Looking at the authentic Yeezy Natural 350 V2s, you can see how their middle stitching is thicker and narrower than the one on the fake Yeezys.
For the ninth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Natural sneakers, we are going to look at the insole on each shoe.
On the rear of the insole is the Adidas Trefoil logo. Here, the first thing you should pay attention to is the embossment of the logo.
On the authentic pair, the ® engraving is significantly deeper than the other characters.

The serial number can be found on the side of the Yeezy V2 Natural.
The authentic pair has thinner text, with more space between each character.
