How to spot fake Yeezy 380 Yecoraite

To spot fake Yeezy 380 Yecoraite, start by checking the size tag.

Fakes typically display inconsistencies in font-weight on their prints.

1. Size tag

  1. “MADE IN CHINA” Text
    • Authentic: Displays a thicker and more defined font.
    • Fake: Showcases thinner, narrower, and slimmer letters.
  2. Measurement Systems Text (“US UK FR JP CHN”)
    • Authentic: Text is visibly thicker.
    • Fake: Text is too thin.
  3. Date of Manufacturing (“10/20”)
    • Authentic: Features thicker and more defined text.
    • Fake: Presents too thin inscription.
  4. “MALE/MÂLE” Text Appearance
    • Note: Both real and fake Yeezy Ash Blue pairs may or may not have this inscription, thus it is not a definitive check.
  5. “adidas ®” Text
    • Authentic: The inscription is thicker and bulkier.
    • Fake: The text is too thin.
  6. “APE/CLU/EVN” Inscription
    • Authentic: Exhibits a thicker text.
    • Fake: Displays a thinner text.

Finding it too hard? Legit check your Yeezys with our experts:

2. Boost sole

  • Authentic: The “boost” text appears smooth, less defined, and maintains a thicker profile.
  • Fake: Exhibits a “boost” text that is notably sharp, thin, and overly visible, diverging from the authentic appearance.

3. Lacing

  • Authentic Lace Pattern:
    • Left Shoe: The lace originating from the left should go underneath the lace coming from the right.
    • Right Shoe: The lace originating from the right should pass beneath the lace originating from the left.
  • Fake Lace Pattern Issue:
    • The left shoe’s left lace incorrectly passes above, not underneath, the right lace, disrupting the authentic lace pattern.

Not clear? We’ve got you:

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.

4. Toe box

  • Authentic:
    • The toe box appears noticeably higher, providing a distinctly inflated appearance.
  • Fake:
    • The toe box exhibits a less elevated profile, lacking the ample height and inflation observed in the authentic version.

5. Stitching

  • Authentic:
    • Stitching is less deep, appearing thinner and properly sized.
  • Fake:
    • Stitching is embedded too deeply in the shoes, appearing improperly larger.

Simple checklist

The five detailed steps provided above for authenticating Yeezy Hylte sneakers may not always be practical when you’re in a hurry or shopping online.

That’s why we’ve put together a quick 60-second solution to help you determine if your sneakers are genuine or fake.

Here are the top five indicators to consider:

  1. Check the size tag: Counterfeit Yeezy 380 pairs often have size tags with improperly weighted and positioned text.
  2. Analyze the boost sole: Fake Yeezy pellets in the sole usually deviate from the correct shape.
  3. Examine the laces: Ensure that the laces are correctly threaded with the right side of the lace going underneath on the right shoe and the left side on the left shoe, as viewed from the top.
  4. Inspect the toe box: Counterfeit Yeezys often have a thinner and flatter toe box compared to genuine pairs.
  5. Examine the gap on the back: Check the middle stitching on the back of the shoes, which can often appear too deep on fake pairs.

This quick guide should help you make a faster assessment of your Yeezy Hylte sneakers’ authenticity.
