Material shines brighter and is not overly concentrated.
Material appears too dark, lacking the bright sheen of authentic pairs.
Scan the barcode: Fake Yeezys often show up with results for different pairs, colorways, and sizes.
Check the size tag: Counterfeit Yeezy 380 Calcite Glow pairs typically have improperly weighted and placed text on the size tag.
Verify the box label: Authentic European box labels should have 6 sizes and the “V10” inscription, while American boxes should have 3 sizes and a “V02” or “V03” inscription. Fake boxes often have twisted inscriptions.
Inspect the laces: Ensure that on the right shoe, the right side of the lace goes underneath, and on the left shoe, the left side goes underneath, assuming a top-down view.
Analyze the boost sole: Fake Yeezy pellets often have an incorrect shape.
Examine the toe box: Fake Yeezys often have a toe box that is too arched and curvy.
Verify the GITD (Glow in the Dark) effect: The green shade on fake pairs may be too dark.
