This guide will take you through the best steps to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun.

Join us, and let’s legit check your pair.

8 simple steps to follow.

How to spot fake Yeezy 700 Sun

To summarize, the quickest method to identify fake Yeezy Boost 700 Sun is to examine the size tag.

Counterfeit Yeezys typically have incorrectly sized and weighted text.

1. Barcode

All the original Yeezy 700 colorways have the following info:

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

You’ll need to look for those details later in the scanning process.

1.1. How to scan

  • Open the Legit Check App
  • Select the barcode scanner
  • Look up your Yeezy Sun’s barcode.

Let’s go to the results.

1.2. Original

  • That Stadium Goods result shows us what we need:
  • Yeezy Boost 700, Sun, GZ6894, Size US10 (UK9.5)

Perfectly fine.

1.3. Replica

Definitely fake.

  • No matches come up.
  • No sign of the right Yeezy + colorway + size + style code.

Therefore, this Yeezy Sun barcode is 100% fake.

2. Size tag

  • Authentic:
    1. “MADE IN CHINA” text is thicker.
    2. “US UK FR JP CHN” text is thinner, with the “FR” inscription noticeably slimmer.
    3. Text in “APE/CLU/EVN” inscription is thinner.
    4. The last line of text on the size tag is thinner.
    5. “11/20” date of manufacturing text is thinner and slightly smaller.
  • Fake:
    1. “MADE IN CHINA” text appears too thin.
    2. “US UK FR JP CHN” text, especially the “FR” inscription, is too thick.
    3. “APE/CLU/EVN” inscription text is too thick.
    4. The entire last line of text on the size tag is excessively thick.
    5. “11/20” date of manufacturing text is both too thick and too large.

3. Lacing

  • Authentic Yeezy Sun Pairs:
    • From the wearer’s view:
      • Left Shoe: Left lace goes beneath the right lace.
      • Right Shoe: Right lace goes beneath the left lace.
    • Laces are properly attached, as seen in the image.
  • Fake Yeezy Sun Pairs:
    • Laces are inverted compared to the authentic pair.

Take a closer look:

Remember: Laces can be swapped.

Hence, we don’t think this is a reliable authenticity teller…

Unless you’re certain your Yeezy Sun are 100% deadstock (brand new).

4. Box label

  • Box Label Inspection for Yeezy Sun:
    • Two confirmation points: country size code and serial number.
  • Yeezy-Adidas Sneaker Versions:
    • US Version:
      • Displays sizes for US, UK, and F on the box label.
      • US size in large print, others smaller.
      • Serial number ends with V02 or V03.
    • International Version:
      • Features sizes for US, UK, F, D, J, and CHN, all in equal print.
      • Serial number ends with V10.

Deviation from above patterns indicates a fake pair.

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:
    • The patch is shaped like a water drop: wider at the bottom and narrowing downwards.
    • Stitching around the patch is bigger and wider.
  • Fake:
    • Patch is tube-shaped without curvature.
    • Stitching is too small and boxy.

6. Toe box

  • Authentic:
    • Toe box appears thinner and deflated.
    • Has a narrower opening at the front.
  • Fake:
    • Toe box is overly thick and inflated.
    • Exhibits excessive curvature with a wider opening at the front.

7. Suede

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.

  • Authentic:
    • Displays a wider, “airier” suede patch.
  • Fake:
    • Suede patch is noticeably narrower with a smaller opening.
    • The overall shape of the patch on fake pairs is more confined compared to the authentic pairs.

8. Profile

  • Authentic:
    • Eye details are larger and have subtle curves.
    • Midsole pods are thinner, smaller, and narrower.
  • Fake:
    • Eyes are narrower and curve sharply at the edges.
    • Features thick and large midsole pods.

Shortlist: Legit check your Yeezy Sun

Look out for these top 8 indicators:

  1. Scan the barcode using the Legit Check App.
  2. Check the size tag for printing inconsistencies.
  3. Verify the correct lacing style.
  4. Inspect the box label for accurate serial numbers and sizes.
  5. Examine the rear suede area, ensuring it’s the right width.
  6. Confirm the toe box isn’t overinflated.
  7. Check the V-shaped toe box suede area for the correct shape.
  8. Verify the placement and shape of the pods and eyes on the side of the sneakers.
