That is because only by reading our real vs fake Yeezy Sun legit check guide, you are going to easily know what to look for in order to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V1 Sun sneakers.

We are going to sort out all of the information on how to spot fake Yeezy 700 Sun sneakers in a few steps, with the help of the real vs fake Yeezy 700 Sun reference images throughout each step.

These images with the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 V1 Sun sneakers will help you easily visualise and understand the flaws on the fake shoes.

To put it shortly, the fastest way to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun is to look at the size tag, as the replica Yeezy 700 Sun pairs never have their text at the correct thickness, while the authentic sneakers must always be flawless.

How to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun

Step 1: Real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun barcode scan

For the very first step on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V1 Sun Orange, we are going to look at the barcode of the fake vs real Yeezy Sun 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 Sun pairs.

But, for now, let’s have a look at the fake v real Yeezy 700 Sun pairs for their barcode on the box’s label.

When you are ready to scan the barcode of your Yeezy Sun, 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:

  • Colorway – SUN/SUN/SUN (GZ6984)
  • Style – 700
  • Size – From 4 to 17 (US)

How do you scan your Yeezy Boost 700 Sun using the Legit Check App?

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 Sun.

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 Sun.

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 Sun for authenticity, read our article here.

Step 2: Check the size tag inside your Yeezy Boost 700 Sun

Moving on to the second step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun sneakers, we are going to have a look at the size tags inside both of the fake vs real Yeezy Sun shoes.

Keep in mind that the size tag is the very best way to spot fake Yeezy 700 Sun, so we recommend that you always make sure to look at the size tag of the Yeezy Sun pair that you are authenticating.

Now, let’s have a look at the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun image below in order to see the difference between the two pairs.

real vs replica yeezy 700 v1 sun

In the image with the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun shoes above, we have pointed out how the fake pair has five main flaws, which we are going to address individually.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” print

The first flawed print on the fake pair’s size tag is the one indicating that the shoes were manufactured in China.

Looking at the replica Yeezy Sun pair’s “MADE IN CHINA” text, you can see how it looks too thin, and how the authentic pair has its text thicker.

2 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

Moving on to the next flawed text on the fake pair’s size tag, you can notice how the fake pair has its “US UK FRJP CHN” text a bit thicker than what it has to be.

This flaw can be the easiest visible on the fake Yeezy Sun pair’s “FR” inscription, where the text is a thicker than the authentic pair’s text, which his thinner.

3 – 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 Sun pair.

Observing the fake pair’s “APE” inscription, you can see how the text looks too thick, and how the authentic has its text thinner.

4 – The last line of text on the size tag

Going to the last line of text on the fake item’s size tag, you can see how the Yeezys have their text way thicker than what it has to be on the genuine shoes.

Speaking of which, the authentic Yeezy Boost 700 Sun pair has its whole last line of text looking thinner than the fake pair’s text, which is too thick.

5 – The date of manufacturing the shoes

For the fifth and the last flawed inscription on the fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun shoes, we are have the “11/20” text which is also too thick, but also bigger than the authentic text.

Mentioning the genuine Yeezy Boost 700 Sun, you can see how their “11/20” print looks thinner and a bit smaller than the fake pair’s text.

Step 3: Real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun lacing pattern

For the third step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun sneakers, we are going to look at the way in which the real vs fake Yeezy Sun pairs are laced.

Bear in mind that the authentic Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 sneakers have a pattern for their laces that must be followed throughout all of the pairs.

yeezy 700 sun orange real vs fake

Basically, here is how it should go like on the genuine Yeezy Sun pairs: from the wearer’s view with the shoes on: on the left shoe, the left lace has to go beneath the right one.

Still from the wearer’s view, on the right shoe, the genuine Yeezy Sun pairs must have their right lace going beneath the left lace.

As you can see in the image with the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 V1 Sun shoes above, the fake Yeezy Sun pair has its laces as we call them inverted, while the genuine pair has its laces properly attached to the shoes.

authentic vs replica yeezy 700

The image with the fake vs real Yeezy Sun 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.

Step 4: Verify your Yeezy 700 Sun’s box label

Next, you will proceed to inspect the box label of your Yeezy Sun. 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 Sun, 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 Sun 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.

Step 5: Inspect the rear details of your Yeezy 700 Sun

Moving forward to the fifth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun sneakers, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Yeezy Sun pairs from the back.

So, flipping the Yeezy Sun fake vs real pairs, let’s have a look at the curvy suede patch which goes down shape like a drop of water on the shoes.

yeezy boost 700 v1 sun rep vs real

In the image with the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 Sun shoes above, we have pointed out how the fake pair has its orange suede badly shaped.

Just as how we’e previously mentioned, you can see how the authentic pair has its patch shaped just like a drop of water that curves widely at the bottom, and that on its way down, it is a bit narrow.

Looking at the fake Yeezy Sun pair’s patch, you can see how the patch is shaped straight, just like a tube, without any sign of a curvature.

Not only that, but the stitching all around the curvy suede patch is also too small and boxy on the fake pair, and the same stitching on the authentic Yeezy 700 Sun pair is bigger and wider than the fake pair’s stitching.

Step 6: Look at the inflation level of the toe box on your Yeezy Boost 700 Sun pair

Proceeding to the sixth method on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun shoes, we are going to have a look at the fake vs real Yeezy Sun pairs for their overall look of the toe box.

So, flip your shoes to the profile side, and have a look with us below at the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 Sun image with the toe boxes.

real vs fake yeezy sun

The flaw which we’ve noticed on the fake Yeezy Sun pair’s toe box is a bit too thick, as it has this sort of an over-inflated look when put side-by-side with the legit pair’s toe box.

Putting that aside, we’ve also notice how the replica Yeezy 700 Sun pair’s toe box is also too curvy, as it has this opening that is too wide up to the front.

On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy Bosot 700 Sun shoes have their toe box looking thinner, with a deflated look, and also being less curvy than the fake pair’s toe box.

Step 7: Examine the V-shape on the toe box of the Yeezy Sun

Since we were previously talking about the toe box of the fake vs real Yeezy 700 Sun shoes, now let’s have a look at the V-shaped suede patch on the toe box of the two pairs.

In order to analyze the V-shaped suede patch, let’s have a look at the fake vs real Yeezy Sun pairs from a top-down view.

qc lc yeezy boost 700 v1 sun

In the image with the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 Sun shoes above, we have pointed out how the patch on the legitimate Yeezy Sun shoes looks wider and “more aired” when compared to the fake pair’s patch.

Speaking of which, the replica Yeezy Sun has its suede patch being narrower, as it ha a smaller opening, while the authentic shoes have their patch wider.

We drew the green line for the authentic shoes and the red one for the fake ones in order to show you how the shape of the legitimate shoes looks wider than the fake pair’s rather narrower look.

Step 8: Analye the eyes and the pods on your Yeezy Sun

Moving forward to the eighth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun sneakers, we are going to look at the eyes and the pods on the side of the fake vs real Yeezy Sun shoes.

So, once again, let’s flip the fake vs real Yeezy Sun shoes to their profile side, and let’s quickly inspect these details which give the signature of the Yeezy 700 silhouette.

fake vs real yeezy sun

Beginning with the upper side’s details, we have the two eyes on the fake vs real Yeezy Sun pairs, and on the fake pair, the eyes appear to be too narrow and curving too much out of the sudden at their edges.

Looking at the authentic Yeezy Sun pair’s eyes, you can see how the eyes are bigger and how they curve less out of the sudden when compared to the fake pair’s eyes.

Then, going to the midsole, we have the two pods which are too thick and too big on the fake shoes, and on the authentic Yeezy Boost 700 Sun shoes, these look thinner, smaller and narrower than the fake pair’s pods.

How can I spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun in 60 seconds?

There are situations where you may be unable to go through each detailed step explained above when you need to authenticate your Yeezy Boost 700 Sun.

That is why we have compiled this quick 60 seconds solution to authenticating your sneakers. Below are the top 8 indicators that can help you determine if you have a fake pair of sneakers or original Adidas manufactured Yeezy Sun.

  1. Scan the barcode of the Yeezy Boost Sun OG using the Legit App Checker.
  2. Verify the Yeezy 700 Sun size tag for inconsistencies in the printing quality.
  3. Ensure the lacing style of the Yeezy 700 Sun follows the correct style following the right lace under in right shoe and left leg under in the left shoe pattern.
  4. Inspect the serial numbers and sizes on the box label.
  5. Look at the rear details of the sneakers. Mostly, the bottom side of the suede area will not be wide and large on the fake Yeezys
  6. Ensure that the toe box is not unusually inflated on your Yeezy 700 pair
  7. Verify the V-shaped toe box suede area. Most of the time, the replica Yeezy Boost 700 OG pairs will have the grey suede area on the toe box looking more like a “U” instead of a “V”, as on the authentic sneakers.
  8. Verify the placement and shape of the pods and the eyes on the side of the shoes. Mostly, the eyes are a lot larger on the fake shoes than the ones on the authentic pairs, and the pods are too wide and placed incorrectly
