The quickest way to check the authenticity of your Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cream White is to check the size tag and the box label of the sneakers. On this size tag, you may spot some inconsistencies including fuzzy lines and ink blotting which are instant callouts of a fake.
On the box label, the replicas may feature a size code that doesn’t correspond with the version of the sneakers.
Every one of these inconsistencies does not need to be present for a sneaker to be a fake, even one minor inconsistency, is enough confirmation that you have a replica of the original V2 Cream White.
Initially released in April 2019, the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cream White colorway comes in a cream Primeknit upper and a cream midsole, with the signature SPLY-350 branding camouflaged in cream across the stripe on the sides of the sneakers.
If you are interested in purchasing a pair of these sneakers, then you would want to ensure that you are not spending your money on a replica of the original.
That is why we have created this Ultimate Guide to the Fake vs Real Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cream White Comparison with picture illustrations to help you identify a fake Yeezy V2 Cream White.
This 13-step legit check guide will take you through the ways you can differentiate a replica from the real Yeezy Cream White.
You can tell if Cream White Yeezys are fake by checking the size tag inside each shoe. A fake pair always has thicker inscriptions and misaligned words, while the real size tag is 100% flawless.
Below, we have explained the indicators to check out when you want to confirm the authenticity status of your sneakers.
The first real vs fake Yeezy Cream authentication step involves scanning the barcode on the box of your sneakers.
We consider the barcode a reliable tell of authenticity as fake manufacturers do not put in effort into ensuring the correct duplication of the barcode.
As such, the barcode often has some discrepancies that can help you tell a fake from the original V2 Cream.
We recommend scanning the barcode of your sneakers using the Legit Check App.
The app works by running your unique barcode against that of other Yeezy sneakers online and each sneaker in the Yeezy-Adidas collection has a unique barcode that relates to a specific combination of:
First, download and install the Legit Check App. Next, tap on the barcode scan icon and focus on the barcode on the box label of your V2 Cream.
Now, from the results the app will display, you will need to look for matches that confirm the authenticity status.
If the results show lots of confirmation for the size and colorway combination of your sneakers as in the first picture below, then you can be assured your box is original.
However, please note that an original box does not always mean that the sneakers are original as fake manufacturers can always swap the genuine sneakers for the fake ones and package them as the original sneakers.
On the other hand, if the results look like the second image below, where the results do not match the size and colorway of your V2 Cream, then there is a very high chance the sneakers you have is a replica of the original.
It is important to understand that only a perfect size and colorway combination that matches the size and colorway on your box label signifies authenticity.
If either the size or colorway matches but not both as seen in the picture, then your box is no less of a replica.
Please note that each colorway in the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 line has its inconsistencies and what may be a misprint on one could be considered a tell of originality on another.
That said, below are the inconsistencies to look out for in the V2 Cream.
This text indicates that the sneakers were manufactured in China.
Regarding the line width, pay attention to the consistency in the line widths between the text and the two lines above and below it.
As common with any fake size tag that has fractions, here you can see that ½ character is narrower and aligned differently compared to the well-aligned and bolder character on the authentic size tag.
Please note that 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 tell for identifying a fake Yeezy Boost V2 Cream.
Nonetheless, you should pay attention to the quality of printing here.
While this specific fake Yeezy Cream tag has this dot printed, due to being a top-tier replica, this is an indicator you should always watch out for on your size tag.
You will find this text in the bottom left-hand corner of the size tag.
While the ® does not touch the size tag on this specific fake size tag either, you should always watch out for its position as it can be an instant callout of a fake.
This refers to the last series of numbers on the last row of the size tag.
Please note that these numbers are likely to vary and as such, you should not consider this specific inscription as an indicator of authenticity when you need to identify a fake pair of the Yeezy Cream White.
Rather, look for inconsistencies in print quality.
As the serial number, below it, this code is also likely to vary so what you should watch out for should be the inconsistencies in the text.
Again, pay attention to the inconsistency in the print quality here.
Over here, both the fake and original size tags may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions.
Both are perfectly fine either way.
As such, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy Cream.
This text indicates the date of production of the sneakers. Please note that this text may vary as production dates vary and thus, we do not take it to be a reliable tell when authenticating the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cream.
This can be attributed to the lower quality of equipment used in the printing by the fake manufacturers because the black line is uninterrupted on the size tag of the authentic Yeezy V2 Cream.
On the original pair of the Yeezy V2 Cream, the boost sole is bubbly whereas, the degree of the bubbliness of the boost is greatly reduced on the replicas.
The authentic pellets must be randomly generated. They shouldn’t follow any specific pattern.
Now, let’s also have a look at another example of a fake Yeezy Cream boost sole.
This time, pay attention to the country size code and the serial number.
Before you proceed with this step, it is important to know that every sneaker in the Yeezy-Adidas collection is released in both US and international versions.
Now, the country versions come into play in the serial number. This serial number is found on the bottom left-hand corner of the label.
Although there is no discrepancy with the box label on the fake in the image below as it is a US release with a serial number that ends with a V02, this is still a major inconsistency you should always look out for on the box label whenever you purchase a new pair of Yeezy V2 Cream White.

A quick mention:
If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.
First off, all sneakers in the Adidas-Yeezy collection come with one unique lacing style.
The authentic lacing style simply follows a pattern where the right lace goes under the left lace in the right shoe and the left lace goes under the right lace in the left shoe.
Note: Please note that your Yeezy Cream could still be fake even if they follow this lacing pattern as fake manufacturers can choose to use this lacing pattern on their fake sneakers.
As such, we do not consider this to be a foolproof indicator of authenticity.
Also, pay attention to the “peak” of the tongue:
Please note that while the range of these differences will vary with size, there will still be present nonetheless.
For the seventh step, you will need to inspect the middle stitching of your Yeezy Cream. First, you will have to inspect the stitching on the rear of the sneakers, where the pull tabs are.
There is a difference in how the toe box is shaped on the genuine V2 Cream and replicas.
If your toe box can bend easily, then you likely have the original Yeezy Cream White.
On the other hand, if you have a problem bending the toe box of your sneakers, then the lack of flexibility is your confirmation that you are dealing with a counterfeit.
For this step, you will have to pull out the insole to access and inspect the stripes. We have attached a picture of this to help you better understand what we mean.
Now, as the name of the colorway gives away, the Yeezy Cream White has a cream color. From the Primeknit upper to the translucent midsole to the sole, the sneakers are cream all over.
However, this color difference might not be so easy to notice unless you have a fake and an authentic pair side by side, that is why we inserted the pictures below to help you with the color comparison.
Below are a few inconsistencies we spotted on the insole of the Yeezy Boost Cream White which can help you identify a fake vs real Yeezy Cream pair of sneakers.
