If you are looking to learn how to spot fake Adidas Yeezy Bost 700 Mauve sneakers, then fear not, you’re in the right place.
This fake vs real Yeezy 700 Mauve guide will tell you everything you have to know when it comes to authenticating Yeezy 700 Mauve sneakers.
Along with each step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers, we are going to attach reference real vs fake Yeezy Mauve images that will show you the details on the replica shoes, as well as on the real ones.
To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Mauve Yeezys is to look at the size tag inside each shoe, as well as scanning the barcode. The replica Yeezy Mauve pairs never have their text on the size tag at the correct thickness and kerning, and at the same time, the fake shoes often have the wrong barcode combination regarding the model, style-code, colourway and size, while the genuine shoes are always flawless and pass these tests with no issues.
For the very first step on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V1 Mauve, we are going to look at the barcode of the fake vs real Yeezy Mauve pairs.
The barcode can be found on the box’s label, as well as on the extra white label that comes along with the deadstock Yeezy Mauve pairs.
But, for now, let’s have a look at the fake v real Yeezy 700 Mauve pairs for their barcode on the box’s label.
When you are ready to scan the barcode of your Yeezy Mauve, 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:
Download and install the Legit Check App on your phone.
Once you are ready to scan, tap on the barcode scan icon and focus in on the barcode on the box of your Yeezy 700 Mauve.
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 Boost 700 Mauve.
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 Mauve for authenticity, read our article here.
Proceeding to the second step of the guide on how to legit check Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve, we are now going to have a look at the shoes for their size tags.
As we’ve mentioned it at the top of the guide on how to authenticate Yeezy Mauve, we consider the size tag as the very best way to spot a fake Yeezy Mauve pair.
Therefore, we suggest that you never skip over checking the size tag on your Mauves, as this little label can tell you the authenticity of the Mauves on the spot.
There’s quite a lot of flaws on the fake shoes in the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve image above, so let us explain each one of these individually
1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” print
Starting with the top of the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers, we are going to look at the “MADE IN CHINA” text.
There you can see how the fake Mauve Yeezys have their text looking too thick, as the letters are bolder than what they should be on the real shoes.
Speaking of which, the authentic Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers have their “MADE I NCHINA” inscription looking thinner and slimmer than the fake one.
2 – The date of manufacturing the shoes
This print can be found on the middle right side of your Mauve 700s, and it states the month and the year in which the Mauves were manufactured.
While the month may differ from a pair to another, the year will always be 2018, therefore constantly saying “./18” throughout the legit Mauves.
Though that was just a mention, the actually flaw on the fake shoes is that they have their “09/18” text looking too thin, while the genuine Yeezys have their text thicker and more defined.
3 – The “adidas ®” text
In the bottom left corner of the size tag, we have the “adidas ®” text which has to be on any genuine Yeezy 700 Mauve pair.
Looking at the fake Yeezys, you can see how their “adidas ®” print looks too thick and too bulky, while the retail shoes have their text thinner.
4 – The “APE/CLU/EVN” inscription
As a fun fact, the “APE” text and the rest of the inscriptions that appear in this side of the size tag indicate the factory assigned to manufacture your Yeezy Mauve pair.
Observing the fake pair’s “APE” inscription, you can see how the text looks too thin, and how the authentic has its text thicker.
5 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” print
The fifth and the last flaw which we’ve spotted on the fake pair’s tag is about the “US UK FR JP CHN” text, and on the fake pair, this inscription looks too thick, while the retail shoes have this text looking thicker.
Going to the third way on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers, we are now going to look at the real vs fake Yeezy Mauve 700s for their laces.
The genuine Adidas x Kanye west Yeezy sneakers have a specific pattern for their laces, and all of the genuine shoes that present laces came out of the factory with this specific pattern, including the Mauves.
In the picture with the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers above, we have pointed out how the fake pair’s laces inverted, as we call this flaw on the fake shoes.
So as to understand what’s wrong with the laces of the fake Mauves, let’s have a look at the pattern on of the authentic sneakers:
On the left shoe, the shoelace that comes from the left side must go below the one that comes from the right side, and on the right shoelace that comes from the right side has to go below the lace from the left side.
Looking at the image above, there we have highlighted the left shoe which has the left lace going above the one on the right side, instead of going below it.
No worries if that wasn’t so clear, as we have this image below with the same fake vs real Yeezy Mauve shoes, and you can see how this is explained better.
The image with the fake vs real Yeezy 700 Mauve shoes above is a little bit more detailed and explained in a simpler way so that everything would be understood easier.
This is because the fake manufacturer can choose to lace their sneakers to mimic the authentic pattern although it is a replica.
Thus, we do not consider this to be a foolproof indicator of authenticity.
Next, you will proceed to inspect the box label of your Yeezy Mauve. On the box label, there are two main confirmation points you should look out for; the country size code and the serial number. So how does this work?
Now, it is important to understand that the Yeezy-Adidas collaboration releases its sneakers in two versions – the US version and the international version.
The US version displays three-country sizes on the box label – US, UK, and F. Here, the US size is in large print, while the other two sizes featured under the US size and in smaller prints.
The international version of the Yeezy 700 Mauve, 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 Mauve Yeezys.
The steps we’ve written so far are the best ways to authenticate this item.
The next few steps are still reliable signs of authenticity but are for non-top-versions of replicas available for this item. We recommend sticking to the steps we’ve explained above to make sure you’re not drawing the wrong conclusions.
Moving forward to the fifth method of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers, we are going to have a look at the fake vs real Yeezy 700 Mauve sneakers for their rear side’s details.
Basically, we are going to look at the fake vs real Yeezy 700 mauve pairs for their suede patch which has a curvy shape at the bottom.
In the picture with the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers above, we have pointed out how the fake Yeezy 700s have their patch too little curvy, as it is too narrow.
On the other hand, the retail Yeezy Mauves have their same patch looking curvier and wider at the bottom of its curve.
Going to the sixth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Yeezy Mauve 700s for their toe box’s V-shaped patch made out of the brown suede.
Precisely, what you want to look at right now is at how curvy the patch is, and how wide open it is
In the picture with the real vs fake Yeezy 700 Mauve shoes above, we have pointed out how the fake pair’s patch is too little, too narrow and too little wide.
Looking at the genuine Yeezy Mauves, you can see how their have their patch wide open, as it is way curvier than the patch seen on the fake shoes.
The green curvy line on the legit shoes and the red one on the fake shoes can help you easily notice the difference between the curviness of the patches on the real vs fake Yeezy 700 Mauve pairs.
For the seventh method of the guide on how to spot real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers, we are going to have a look at the Mauves for their midsoles on the pods.
The pods on the midsoles are what give the most colour and shining to the Mauves, as we’re talking about the little green circles.
The fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers above shows you how the fake Mauves have their their pods too wide and too fat.
On the other hand, the legitimate Yeezy Boost 700 V1 Mauve pair has its pods on the midsole looking narrower and slimmer than those found on the fake Mauves.
Going to the eighth method on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V1 Mauve sneakers, we are going to look at the toe boxes.
In order to check the toe boxes of the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers, we are going to flip the shoes to their profile sides.
The image with the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 Mauve sneakers above shows you how the fake Yeezys have their toe box too thin, as it is inflated too little.
On the other hand, you can notice how the genuine Yeezy 700 Mauve shoes have their toe box looking thicker and more inflated than the fake pair’s toe box.
Moving to the ninth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V1 Mauve sneakers, we are going to look at the real vs fake Yeezy Mauve shoes for their 3M reflective material.
To reveal the 3M reflective material on the side of the shoes, we’ll have to turn the lights off and turn on the flashlight.
The picture with the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 V1 Mauve sneakers above shows you how the fake Yeezys have their material shining way weaker than the real one.
Speaking of which, the genuine 700 Mauves have their 3M reflective material on all sides of the shoes shining more powerful than the fake one.
As for the tenth and the last step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V1 Mauve sneakers, we are going to look at the real vs fake Mauve 700s for their text on the insole.
In the image with the fake vs real Yeezy 700 Mauve shoes above, you can observe how the fake pair’s “YEEZY” text looks too thick and how it is crooked, and how the real shoes have their text thinner and perfectly positioned on the insole.
As for the “adidas” text, you can also notice how the fake pair’s text is too thick, while the same inscription on the real shoes is thinner.
