If you are trying to learn what to look for in order to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown sneakers, then you’ve come into the right place.

That is because just by reading this guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Clay Brown shoes, you are going to know what to look for and what is the difference in terms of quality between the real vs fake Clay Brown 700 V3 Yeezys.

We are going to sort out the information throughout the guide on how to see fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown shoes within a few steps.

And, along with teach step, we are going to add reference fake vs real Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown images so that every piece of information will be clear and easily understandable.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown shoes is to look at the size tag inside each shoe, because no counterfeit Yeezy Clay Brown pair has its inscriptions at the correct thickness, while the genuine Yeezys always have their details on point, with no flaw.

How to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown

Step 1: Real vs fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown barcode scan

As for the first step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown, we are going to teach you how to analyze the barcode on your Yeezys.

The barcode can be found in two spots: the first one is on the extra white label which has the information on the box’s label in a long-story-short method, and the other one is the barcode on the box.

Where we are going to look at is at the barcode on the box’s label, and so, let’s have a look at the reference real vs fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown image below.

When you are ready to scan the barcode of your Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown, 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 colourway, style and size.

  • Colorway – Clay Brown (GY0189)
  • Style – 700 V3
  • Size – From 4 to 17 (US)

How do you scan your Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown using the Legit Check App?

First of all, you’ll have to install the Legit Check App on your iOS and/or Android device.

Once you are ready to scan, tap on the barcode scan icon and focus on the barcode on the box of your Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown.

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 700 V3 Clay Brown.

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.

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.

On the other hand, if the results do not show confirmation points that match the size-colorway combination, as shown in the picture below, then you probably have a fake in your hands.

Please note that the barcode scanning can only be considered a perfect match when the size and colorway 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 Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown for authenticity, read our article here.

Step 2: Inspect the size tag inside your Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown

Going to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown, we are going to have a look at the size tag inside the shoes.

Just as we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the size tag as the best way on how to spot fake Yeezy Clay Brown pairs.

With this being said, let’s have a look at the authentic vs fake Yeezy Clay Brown image from below, and after that, we are going to explain the situation between the two pairs.

yeezy clay brown authentication guide

In the image with the fake vs real Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown shoes above, we’ve spotted six flaws on the fake Clay Brown 700 V3s.

Now, we are going to take each flaw individually, and we are going to explain them all to you in a detailed manner.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” print

The very first print which we are going to look at is the one at the top of the size tag, which is the “MADE IN CHINA” print.

Looking at the counterfeit 700 V3 Clay Brown’s “MADE IN CHINA” text, you can see how this inscription is too thin.

On the other hand, looking at the genuine Clay Brown Yeezys, you can see how their “MADE IN CHINA” text is thicker and more defined than the fake pair’s text.

2 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

The next inscription which we are going to look at is the one that indicates a few countries in which the size of the shoes is mentioned into.

So, the whole “US UK FR JP CHN” text on the replica Yeezy Clay Brown 700 V3s is once again looking a bit too thin, while the authentic Yeezys have their text thicker.

3 – The date of manufacturing the shoes’ text

As for the third flaw on the fake shoes, you can see how the “09/20” print (which stands for the month and year in which the shoes were manufactured into) is also improperly detailed.

First of all, yes, once again, the characters “09/20” are too thin on the fake shoes, but since these are too thin, they have another flaw which was automatically caused.

The other flaw is that the fake shoes’ “09/20” text is improperly spaced between, as there is too much space between the numbers and the slash character (“/”) placed in the middle.

Back to the authentic Yeezy Clay Brown 700 V3s, you can see how their “09/20” text is thicker and its numbers and slash character are placed closer to each other.

4 – The appearance of the MALE/MÂLE text 

Both the real and fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown pairs may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.

Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown pairs.

5 – The LHG/APE/CLU/EVN print

Please note that LHG, 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 spot for identifying a fake Yeezy Clay Brown pair.

However, what you need to pay attention to is the quality of printing here. Look out for ink blotting, fuzzy lines, and other signs of poor quality printing.

6 – The size of the shoes’ print

As for the sixth and the last flaw spotted on the replica shoes’ size tag, you can see how the characters on the fake Yeezy Clay Browns are too thick, especially the last one: the “280” print.

Looking at the genuine Yeezy Clay Browns, you can see how their text is thinner, rather than the fake pair’s text which is too thick.

Step 3: Check the lacing style of your 700 V3 Clay Brown

Proceeding to the third method on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown shoes, we are going to have a look at the fake vs real Yeezy Clay Brown pairs for the method on which they were laced into.

First things first, we’d like to mention that all of the Adidas Yeezy shoes have a pattern which they must follow, and that is the same pattern for all of the shoes that present laces.

So as to see this pattern, let’s have a look at the fake vs real Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown image from below, and after that, we’ll explain the situation on the shoes.

So as to keep this simple, we are going to tell you the pattern of the shoes on both the left and the right pair, and how it should be on the genuine shoes.

Considering that somebody is wearing the shoes, from the wearer’s view on the left shoe, the shoelace that comes from the left side should go underneath the one from the right side.

The same thing happens mirror on the right shoe. So, considering that somebody is wearing the shoes, from their point of view, on the right shoe, the shoelace from the right side has to go below the left one.

If that wasn’t so clear, we understand that, as we’ve prepared a more detailed real vs fake Yeezy Clay Brown image right below.

real vs fake yeezy clay brown 700 v3

As you can see, in the fake vs real Yeezy Clay Brown image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their laces “inverted”.

Please keep in mind that the laces can be swapped and relaced even on the fake Yeezys in the authentic manner, so that’s why we don’t consider this as the go-to authenticity check – this flaw applies only to the deadstock (unworn, untouched) pairs.

Lastly, in the image above, we have highlighted the authentic classic spare laces inside the package in which they should come.

Step 4: Brief the text on the box label of the Yeezys

For the fourth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V3 Clay Brown sneakers, we are going to check out the box label of the Yeezys.

The international version of the Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown, on the other hand, features 6 countries (US, UK, F, D, J, and CHN) sizes and every one of them is in equal prints on the label.

On the bottom right-hand corner of the box label is the serial number. If the pair is a US release, then the serial number is going to end with a V02 or V03. But for international (Canadian/European) releases, the serial number will end with a V10.

As seen in the image below, in the authentic international version featuring 6 sizes, the serial number ends with a V10. However, on the fake box label which is a US version, the serial number ends with a V10, as opposed to a V02 or V03.

Please note that if you notice any deviation from this pattern, then you are without a doubt looking at a fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown pair.

The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways to authenticate this item.

The next few steps are still reliable signs of authenticity, but are for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the steps we’ve explained above to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.

(By the way, have you seen our Price Comparison App? No need to compare sellers for the best price — we’ve done that for you.)

Going to the fifth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Clay Brown 700 V3s, we are going to look at the logo placed on the rear heel side.

As always, let’s first have a look at the reference real vs fake Yeezy Clay Brown image with the logos from below.

authentic vs fake yeezy 700 v3 clay brown

In the image with the authentic vs replica Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their three-striped logo and the “adidas” text too thick.

On the other hand, the authentic 700 V3 Clay Browns have both their three-striped logo and the “adidas” text thinner than the one on the fake Yeezys.

Step 6: Examine the toe box’s inflation level on your Yeezys

For the sixth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown sneakers, we are going to have a look at the shoes from the profile side.

Precisely, we are going to have a look to the front side of the shoes, where the toe box is located, with the help of the fake vs real Yeezy Clay Brown image from below.

yeezy 700 v3 legit check guide

In the image with the retail vs fake Yeezy Clay Browns above, we have noticed how the fake shoes have their toe box improperly inflated.

That is because the fake shoes have their toe box being too chunky and too thick, therefore having this sort of an over-inflated look.

As for the genuine Yeezy Clay Browns, you can see how their toe box looks smaller and slimmer, having more of a deflated look when compared to the fake shoes’ toe box.

How can I spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown in 60 seconds?

There are situations where you may be unable to go through each detailed step explained above when you need to authenticate your Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown.

That is why we have compiled this quick 60 seconds solution to authenticating your sneakers. Below are the top 6 indicators that can help you determine if you have a fake pair of sneakers or original Adidas manufactured Yeezy 700 V3 Clay Brown.

  1. Scan the barcode of the Yeezy 700 V3 Arzareth using the Legit App Checker.
  2. Verify the Yeezy 700 V3 Arzareth size tag for inconsistencies in the printing quality.
  3. Inspect the serial numbers and sizes on the box label.
  4. Ensure the lacing style of the Yeezy 700 V3 Arzareth follows the correct style following the right lace under in the right shoe and the left leg under in the left shoe pattern.
  5. Look at the rear details of the sneakers. Mostly, the fake Yeezy 700 V3 Arzareth sneakers will have the Adidas logo improperly font-weighted and their cage will be too close to the middle stitching
  6. Verify your shoes for the toe box’s inflation level, as the fake pairs usually have their toe box looking too thick and too little curvy when compared to the legit shoes’ toe box
