If so, then you are in the right place, as today we are going to teach you how to spot real vs fake Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower – the yellow 700 V3s.
Only by reading this real vs fake Yeezy Safflower guide, you are going to easily learn what to look for in order to spot the fake Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower pairs.
Along with every step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Yellow pairs, we are going to link reference real vs fake Safflower 700 V3 images so that every piece of information will be clear.
The fastest and easiest way to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 shoes is to look at the size tag inside each shoe, as the replica pairs never have their text at the correct thickness, while the authentic pairs never present any flaws in terms of anything.
When fake manufacturers try to replicate the Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower sneakers, they are typically more focused on recreating the design of the sneakers with almost little to no attention paid to elements like the barcode.
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 700 V3 Safflower, 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.
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 Safflower.
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 Safflower.
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 Safflower for authenticity, read our article here.
Going to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower sneakers, we are now going to have a look at the real vs fake 700 V3 Safflower Yeezys for their size tags.
Just as we’ve previously mentioned, we consider the size tag inside the shoes as the most reliable way on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower.
So, let’s have a look at the reference real vs fake Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower image below in order to see the differences between the two pairs.
Now that you’ve had a look at the reference Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower image above, let us explain the flaws below.
1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” text
The very first line of text visible on the size tag is the one saying where the shoes were manufactured.
In the image with the fake vs real Yeezy Safflower pairs above, we have pointed out how the fake Safflowers have their “MADE IN CHINA” text looking a bit too thin.
On the other hand, the genuine Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower sneakers have their country of manufacturing’s line of text looking a tad bit thicker than the one on the replica pair.
2 – The size of the shoes’ text
Proceeding to the second flaw on the fake shoes, you can see how the replica Yeezy 700 V3 Safflowers have their numbers which indicate the size of the shoes being too thin.
Back to the authentic Yeezy 700 V3s, you can see how their size tag has the numbers indicating the size of the shoes looking thicker and more defined than the fake pair’s text.
3 – The “adidas ®” inscription
This is one of the most important and blatant flaws that can occur on a fake Adidas x Kanye West “YEEZY” pair.
Looking at the registered trademark “®” symbol, you can see how the fake pair has its symbol placed too close to the “adidas” text.
In fact, the fake shoes have their “®” symbol in contact with the “adidas” text, and this is a flat that never occurs on the authentic pairs.
On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy 700 V3 Safflowers have their “®” symbol placed further away from the “adidas” text.
4 – The appearance of the MALE/MÂLE text
Both the real and fake Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower 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 Safflower pairs.
5 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” inscription
Lastly, looking at the line of text saying “US UK FR JP CHN”, you can see how the replica shoes have their text too thin.
On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy Safflowers have their “US UK FR JP CHN” text looking thicker and more defined than the one on the fake pair
As for the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower sneakers, we are now going to have a look at the real vs fake Safflower Yeezys for their lacing pattern.
Not only the authentic Safflower Yeezy 700 V3s, but all of the Adidas x Kanye West “YEEZY” shoes have a pattern in which the laces are attached to the shoes.
So as to keep it simple, put it this way: from the wearer’s view with the shoes on-foot, on the left shoe, the left lace has to go under the right lace.
At the same time, still from the wearer’s view with the shoes on-foot, on the right shoe, the right lace is supposed to go under the right lace.
In some cases, the replica shoes come from the counterfeit-manufacturing factory with the laces randomly attached to the shoes, and this is the tell which we call as the “inverted laces”.
As you can see, in the fake vs real Yeezy Safflower 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.
For the fourth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V3 Safflower sneakers, we are going to check out the box label of the Yeezys.
The international version of the Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower, 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 Safflower pair.

Going to the fifth way on how to spot fake vs real Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower shoes, we are going to have a look at the two pairs for the placement of the logo on the rear side.
The logo which we are talking about can be found on the midsole of your Yeezy 700 V3 Safflowers.
In the image with the fake vs real Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower shoes above, we have pointed out how the replica Yeezy Safflowers have their logo improperly positioned on the midsole.
In fact, the replica Yeezy 700 V3 Safflowers have their logo placed too high, as the logo is a bit too far away from the bottom side of the shoes.
On the other hand, the genuine Yeezy 700 V3 Safflowers have their “adidas” logo placed lower on the midsole, as the legit shoes’ logo is placed closer to the bottom of the shoes.
As for the sixth method on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower sneakers, we are going to look at the overall look of the toe box on the real vs fake 700 V3 Safflower Yeezys.
Just as always, let’s first have a look at the reference fake vs real Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower sneakers for their toe box in the image below.
In the image with the real vs fake Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower sneakers above, we have pointed out how the replica Yeezys have their toe box looking too bulky and thick.
Back to the genuine Yeezy Safflowers, you can notice how their toe box is thinner and has more of a deflated look, rather than the over-inflated look of the fake shoes’ toe box.
Proceeding to the seventh and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower sneakers, we are going to look at the shoes for their 3M reflectiveness.
In the image with the real vs fake Yeezy 700 V3 Safflower shoes above, we have pointed out how the fake 700 V3s have their 3M reflective material shining too little when compared to the authentic shoes’ material.
In fact, you can see how the legit shoes have their material reflecting strong and powerful, and how the replica shoes shine weaker.
