You’ll gain lots of knowledge just by reading this post.

Let’s check it out.

How to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Arzareth

To spot fake Yeezy Arzareth, check the size tag inside each shoe.

Authentic Yeezy Arzareth pairs consistently feature well-detailed and correctly positioned text.

Authentic Yeezys come with the following unique details:

  • Colorway – ARZARE/ARZARE/ARZARE (G54850)
  • Style – 700 V3
  • Size – From 4 to 17 (US)

Look for those later in the scanning process.

2. Size tag

1. “MADE IN CHINA” Text:

  • Authentic: Text has appropriate font-weight.
  • Fake: Text appears bolder and thicker.

2. Size Number Print:

  • Authentic: Uniform size and thickness of numbers in “265.”
  • Fake: The “5” is noticeably smaller, and numbers are excessively thick.

3. Date of Manufacturing’s Print:

  • Authentic: “05/20” text is thin, with consistent spacing between characters.
  • Fake: “04/20” text is too thick and characters, including “/”, are too close.

4. “adidas ®” Text Positioning:

  • Authentic: Adequate spacing between “adidas” text and the “®” symbol.
  • Fake: The “®” symbol is too close to, or touching, the “adidas” text.

5. “#” Hashtag Print:

  • Authentic: Hashtag “#” appears thick and well-defined.
  • Fake: Hashtag “#” looks too thin and less defined.

6. APE/CLU/EVN Print:

  • Authentic/Fake: Both can have any of the “CLU,” “APE,” or “EVN” inscriptions. No definitive distinction here.
  • Note: Examine for poor quality printing like ink blotting or fuzzy lines as it may indicate a fake.

7. “US UK FR JP CHN” Line of Text:

  • Authentic: Text, notably “U” in “US,” is sufficiently thick.
  • Fake: Text, especially “U,” appears too thin.

3. Box label

  • Size Indications:
    • The international version of the Yeezy 700 V3 Arzareth showcases 6 country size indicators: US, UK, F, D, J, and CHN, uniformly presented on the label.
  • Serial Number Nuances:
    • The serial number is pivotal and is located at the bottom right-hand corner of the box label.
    • For the US releases, the serial number concludes with either V02 or V03.
    • Conversely, international releases, which encompass Canadian and European versions, will have serial numbers that finish with V10.
  • Validation Through Serial Numbers:
    • An authentic international version, which features 6 sizes, will have a serial number ending with V10.
    • A discrepancy, like a US version box label with a V10 ending serial number (instead of V02 or V03), is a red flag signaling a counterfeit product.

4. Lacing

Each Adidas x Yeezy shoes have the same pattern for their laces from the authentic factory.

  • When viewing from the wearer’s perspective:
    • On the left shoe, the left lace must be positioned underneath the right lace.
    • Conversely, on the right shoe, the right lace must be situated underneath the left lace.

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.

5. Back

  • Text Thickness & Definition:
    • Authentic: The “adidas” text is noticeably thicker and more defined.
    • Fake: The corresponding text is rendered in a thinner font, lacking the desired definition.
  • Positioning of Components:
    • Authentic: The cages (bags) are thoughtfully placed, maintaining a noticeable distance from the middle stitching.
    • Fake: These cages are inappropriately placed too close to the middle stitching, disrupting the intended design alignment.

6. Top-down

  • Authentic: The V-shape is narrower and smaller, adhering to the design intentions of the original model.
  • Fake: Demonstrates a wider V-shape, which is a common discrepancy found in many replica pairs.

7. Glowing

  • Authentic: Exhibits a more potent and shinier glow, especially noticeable in the green color on the cage.
  • Fake: The glow is less powerful and the green color appears less vibrant and shiny in comparison.

8. Toe box

  • Authentic: Displays a more curvy and arched upward appearance towards the front of the shoes.
  • Fake: Presents a chunkier, thicker, and less curvy toe box, lacking the refined shape found in the authentic pair.


  1. Scan the barcode using the Legit Check App.
  2. Check the quality of the printing on the size tag for inconsistencies.
  3. Inspect the serial numbers and sizes on the box label.
  4. Verify the lacing style, with the right lace under in the right shoe and the left lace under in the left shoe.
  5. Examine the rear details, looking for improperly font-weighted Adidas logos and cage placement.
  6. Check the V-shaped toe box area for the correct “V” shape.
  7. Examine the glowing outer cage, looking for white spots and brightness.
  8. Verify the inflation level of the toe box, ensuring it matches the authentic Yeezy 700 V3 Arzareth’s curvature.
