How to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite

In short, the quickest way to identify fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite Blue sneakers is by the size tag.

Fake Yeezy Kyanite pairs typically display text with incorrect font-weight and improper kerning.

1. Barcode

Every original adidas x YEEZY sneaker has unique data:

  • Colorway – KYANIT/KYANIT/KYANIT (GY2060)
  • Style – 700 V3
  • Size – From 4 to 17 (US)

1.1. How to scan

Follow this process:

  1. Install the Legit Check App
  2. Open it
  3. Select the barcode scanner
  4. Analyze your box.

2. Size tag

  • Authentic:
    1. The line of text with the shoe size numbers appears thicker and more defined.
    2. Date of crafting text (e.g., “11/20”) is thicker and bulkier.
    3. “ART GY0260” text is thicker, referencing the style-code of the Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite.
    4. LHG/APE/CLU/EVN print shows quality printing without ink blotting or fuzzy lines. (Note: Any of these inscriptions can appear on authentic pairs.)
    5. The “US UK FR JP CHN” text on the size tag is thicker.
  • Fake:
    1. The line of text with the shoe size numbers looks too thin and narrow.
    2. Date of crafting text appears too thin.
    3. “ART GY0260” text on the fake pair looks too thin.
    4. Be aware of poor quality printing in the LHG/APE/CLU/EVN area, such as ink blotting or fuzzy lines.
    5. The “US UK FR JP CHN” text on the size tag looks too thin.

3. Lacing

  • Authentic lacing pattern:
    • On the left shoe, from the wearer’s point of view, the shoelace originating from the left side should pass underneath the shoelace from the right side.
    • This pattern is mirrored on the right shoe: the shoelace from the right side should go underneath the left one.

Not so clear? We’ve got your back:

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. Box label

  • Authentic:
    • International version box labels feature sizes for six countries (US, UK, F, D, J, CHN), each printed equally on the label.
    • For US releases, the serial number on the bottom right-hand corner of the box label ends with V02 or V03.
    • For international releases (including Canadian and European), the serial number ends with V10.
  • Fake:
    • May have discrepancies in the printed sizes on the label.
    • A US version fake might incorrectly have a serial number ending with V10 instead of V02 or V03…
    • Or any other deviation from the authentic pattern.

5. Toe box

  • Authentic:
    • The toe box appears thinner and less bulky, presenting a sleek profile at the front edge of the shoes.
  • Fake:
    • The toe box is noticeably chunkier and thicker, resulting in a bulkier appearance at the front edge of the shoes.

6. Back

  • Authentic:
    • “adidas” text appears thinner, wider, and generally larger.
  • Fake:
    • “adidas” text is too thick and boxy.

7. Insole

  • Authentic:
    • The “®” symbol next to “Ortholite” is thinner and easily legible.
    • “YEEZY” text appears thicker.
    • “adidas” text is also thicker.
  • Fake:
    • “®” symbol is too thick, making it barely legible.
    • “YEEZY” text is too thin.
    • “adidas” text is too thin as well.

8. Reflectiveness

  • Authentic:
    • The 3M reflective material shines more powerfully.
  • Fake:
    • The 3M reflective material shines weaker.

Your simple checklist

In situations where you need a quicker way to authenticate your Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite:

  1. Scan the barcode of the Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite using the Legit Check App.
  2. Inspect the Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite size tag for inconsistencies in the printing quality.
  3. Verify the serial numbers and sizes on the box label.
  4. Ensure the lacing style of the Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite follows the correct pattern.
  5. Examine the toe box’s inflation level, as fake pairs often have an incorrectly shaped toe box.
  6. Look at the rear details, paying attention to the Adidas logo and cage placement.
  7. Inspect the insole text for correct font-weight and kerning.
  8. Check the shininess of the 3M reflective material; fake pairs may have low-quality reflective material.
