Fan of the Yeezy Boost 700 V1 “Mauve”? Not sure if you’ve got fakes?

In this guide, we’ll teach you how to legit check the Mauve 700s.

How to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve

To legit check your Yeezy 700 Mauve, check size tag and barcode. Fakes have text and barcode discrepancies.

Genuine pairs pass these tests flawlessly.

1. Barcode

All genuine Yeezy sneakers feature a distinct barcode corresponding to a specific combination of:

  • Colorway: MAUVE/MAUVEMAUVE (EE9614)
  • Style: 700
  • Size: 4 to 16 (US)

1.1. How to scan

  1. Get the Legit Check App
  2. Tap “Barcode scanner”
  3. Put the phone in front of your box

Now, let’s look at the results.

We’ll need to focus on the confirmations points (previously listed).

1.2. Authentic

  • The right shoes come up:
    • Yeezy Boost 700 V1, Mauve, EE9614, Size US9

Hence, this box label suggests an authentic pair.

When we refer to the authenticity of the box, we are not necessarily verifying the authenticity of the sneakers inside.

It’s important to consider that:

  • Genuine sneakers might have been substituted with fake ones by deceptive resellers
  • Potentially misleading buyers into believing they have an authentic pair.

This makes the box label a reliable authenticity checker until a certain point.

1.3. Replica

  • The wrong size comes up: the box label said US8, however these are US10
  • The box also showsn random results, unrelated to the Yeezy Mauve.

Hence, this is a 100% fake barcode.

2. Size tag

  • Authentic:
    1. The “MADE IN CHINA” text is thin and slim.
    2. The manufacturing date print (“./18”) is thicker and more defined.
    3. The “adidas ®” text in the bottom left corner of the size tag is thin.
    4. The “APE/CLU/EVN” inscription indicating the manufacturing factory is thicker.
    5. The “US UK FR JP CHN” text is thick.
  • Fake:
    1. The “MADE IN CHINA” text looks too thick and bold.
    2. The “09/18” text indicating the manufacturing date is too thin.
    3. The “adidas ®” text is overly thick and bulky.
    4. The “APE” inscription is too thin.
    5. The “US UK FR JP CHN” text looks excessively thick.

3. Laces

  • Authentic:
    • Left shoe’s left lace is under the right lace.
    • Left shoe’s right shoe’s right lace is under the left lace.
  • Fake:
    • Left shoe’s left lace improperly goes over the right lace.

No worries if that wasn’t so clear.

Let’s take a deeper look:

  • Fake manufacturers might replicate the lacing pattern of authentic sneakers.
  • Hence, lacing pattern isn’t a foolproof indicator of authenticity.

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

  • The Yeezy-Adidas collaboration releases sneakers in two versions: US and International.
    • US version: shows sizes for US, UK, and F; with the US size prominently displayed.
    • International version: features equal prints of sizes for six countries: US, UK, F, D, J, and CHN.

Serial numbers in the lower right of the box label differ:

  • US releases end with V02 or V03
  • International releases end with V10.

Any deviation from these patterns indicates a fake pair of Yeezy 700 Mauves.

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

  • Authentic: Patch is curvier and wider at the bottom.
  • Fake: Patch is narrower with less curve.

6. Top-down

  • Authentic: V-patch is wide and notably curvy.
  • Fake: V-patch is narrow, smaller, and less curvy.

7. Pods

  • Authentic: Pods on the midsole are narrow and slim.
  • Fake: Pods are too wide and fat.

8. Toe box

  • Authentic: Toe box is thicker and more inflated.
  • Fake: Toe box is too thin and insufficiently inflated.

9. Reflectiveness

To see the 3M reflective material on the shoes, turn off the lights and use a flashlight.

  • Authentic: Material shines more powerfully, reflecting light strongly.
  • Fake: Material’s shine is weaker and less reflective.

10. Insole

Let’s look at the inscriptions Adidas added on the insoles.

  • Authentic: “YEEZY” and “adidas” text are thin and perfectly positioned.
  • Fake: “YEEZY” text is thick, crooked, and the “adidas” text is also too thick.

Shortlist: Verify your Yeezy 700 Mauve

  1. Scan the barcode using the Legit Check App.
  2. Examine the size tag for print quality inconsistencies.
  3. Confirm the correct lacing style: right lace under in the right shoe and left lace under in the left shoe.
  4. Inspect the box’s label for serial numbers and sizes.
  5. Check the rear details of the sneakers, focusing on the suede area’s width on the fake Yeezys.
  6. Verify the V-shaped toe box suede patch isn’t too small or narrow on the fake 700 Mauves.
  7. Examine the side pods to ensure they are not excessively wide.
  8. Ensure the toe box isn’t unusually inflated on your Yeezy 700 pair.
  9. Inspect the insole’s text for proper thickness.
  10. Check the 3M reflective material for proper shine, not too weak.
