If you’re looking to learn how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite sneakers, then fear not, you’ve come into the best place to do that.
This guide on how to spot real vs fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite shoes will show you all you need to know about the authentication of these shoes.
Following this fake vs real Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite legit check guide will easily give you the knowledge on how to LC these shoes because of the image that we’ve attached with both the authentic and the fake Kyanites along with every step.
Moreover, these fake vs real Yeezy Kyanite images will help you visualise what does the best replica of the Kyanite Yeezys looks like, as well as how should the retail pairs look like.
To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite Blue sneakers is to look at their label on the inside. We call this label “the size tag” because it holds information about the size and the manufacturing of the 700 V3 Kyanite pairs, and in every case, the replica Yeezy Kyanite pairs have their text at the wrong thickness and kerning in-between the charcaters, while all of the retail Yeezys have the same font-weight and kerning for their characters, therefore leaving a gap between the quality of the real and the fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite pairs.
As for the first step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite, 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 Kyanite image below.
When you are ready to scan the barcode of your Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite, 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 Kyanites.
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 Kyanites.
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 Kyanite for authenticity, read our article here.
Moving forward to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite sneakers, we are now going to go inside the real vs fake Kyanite Yeezys, and we’ll have a look at the Yeezys for their text printed on the size tag.
Though we’ve already said it, whenever it comes to the 700 V3 Kyanite, we consider the size tag as the best spot to check in order to legit check these, so we recommend that you always check the size tag when you have to deal with the Kyanite Yeezys.
The picture with the fake vs real Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite sneakers above shows you how the fake pair’s size tag has five main flaws, and in the meantime, the authentic pair’s size tag has no flaws. Let us explain each flaw individually for you so that no confusion will take place.
1 – The line of text with the size numbers of the shoes
The very first flaw on the fake shoes is on the line of text which tells us the size of the shoes, expressed in numbers.
Looking at the fake Yeezy Kyanites, you can notice how their size tag has the lines of text looking too thin and too narrow.
On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy 700 V3 pair’s line of text with the numbers looks thicker and more defined.
2 – The date of crafting the shoes
The second flaw which we’ve spotted on the fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite pair is the one regarding the mont hand the year in which the real vs replica Yeezy Kyanite pairs were manufactured.
In fact, looking at the fake pair’s “11/20” text, you can see how the numbers and the slash look too thin, and looking at the real deal, the same text looks thicker and bulkier.
3 – The “ART GY0260” text
The “ART GY0260” inscription stands for the style-code of the shoes, which is the unique ID code for the Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite.
The replica Yeezy Kyanite pair’s “ART GY0260” text looks once again too thin, and looking at the real pair, you can see how the same text looks thicker.
4 – 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 700 V3 Kyanite 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.
5 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text
As for the last flaw which we’ve spotted on the fake pair’s size tag, you can notice how the replica 700 V3s have their “US UK FR JP CHN” line of text looking too thin.
Yet again, the authentic Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite pair’s text on the size tag is thicker, even for the “US UK FR JP CHN” text.
Proceeding to the next step, we are now going to check the way in which the real vs fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite pairs are laced in.
All of the genuine Yeezy Kyanite pairs that came out of the authentic Adidas factories must have their laces attached to the shoes in a specific manner, and so as to see this properly, let’s brief the image with the fake vs real Yeezy Kyanite pairs below.
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 Kyanite image right below.
As you can see, in the fake vs real Kyanite Yeezy 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.
For the fourth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V3 Kyanite sneakers, we are going to check out the box label of the Yeezys.
Precisely, we are going to have a look at the US and at the European box labels and at what inscriptions should these have.
The international version of the Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite, 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 pair.
A quick mention:
If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.
For the fifth method on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite shoes, we are going to look at the fake vs real Yeezy Kyanite pairs for their toe boxes.
In order to check the toe boxes properly, let’s flip the real vs fake Yeezy Kyanite pairs to their profile sides.
In the picture with the fake vs real Yeezy Kyanite pairs above, we have pointed out how the fake Kyanite pair’s toe box has the wrong inflation level.
In fact, if you look closely at the front edge of the shoes, you can notice how the fake pair’s toe box is too chunky and thicker than the real one.
Speaking of which, the authentic Yeezy Kyanite pair’s toe box looks thinner and less bulkier than the fake pair’s toe box.
Going to the sixth way on how to authenticate Kyanite Yeezys, we’ll have to flip the fake vs real Yeezy Kyanite pairs to their rear side, and we’ll quickly inspect the “adidas” text written on the lower heel side.
In the image with the real vs fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite pairs above, we have pointed out how the fake pair’s “adidas” text looks too thick and too boxy.
On the other hand, the retail pair’s “adidas” text looks thinner, wider and generally bigger than the fake pair’s text.
As for the seventh method on how to legit check Yeezy Kyanite shoes, we are now going to have a look at the real vs fake Yeezy Kyanite pairs for their insoles.
So, let’s jump again inside the authentic vs fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite pairs, and let’s see their “adidas YEEZY Ortholite®” inscriptions.
In the image with the real vs fake Yeezy 70 0V3 Kyanite’s insoles above, we have pointed out how the fake pair has quite a few flaws at its text.
Looking at the registered trademark “®” symbol next to the “Ortholite” text, you can see how the fake pair’s symbol is way thicker than the real one, since the fake pair’s symbol is barely legible.
On the other hand, the retail pair’s “®” character is first of all thinner than the fake one, and then, it is also more visible and easily legible when compared to the fake one.
Then, looking at the “YEEZY” text, you can notice how the fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite has its text too thin, and how the real pair’s text is thicker.
Lastly, the “adidas” text on the fake Kyanite 700 V3s also looks too thin, while the authentic pair’s “adidas” text is thicker.
For the eighth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Kyanite sneakers, we are going to have a look at the fake vs real Kyanite Yeezys for their 3M reflective material around the laces.
In the image with the fake vs real Yeezy 700 v3 Kyanite shoes above, we have pointed out how the fake Yeezys have their 3M reflective material shining less than the real one.
In fact, the authentic Yeezy 700 V3s have their 3M reflective material shining more powerful than the fake pair’s material, which shines weaker.
