How to tell if your Yeezy 700 MNVN are fake

The #1 way to legit check Yeezy 700 MNVN is to check the size tag. Fakes never have the right font-weight for their prints.

1. Barcode

Each Yeezy sneaker is associated with a unique barcode that corresponds to a specific combination of colorway, style, and size.

In this comparison, we’ve used the Black colorway for the authentic and the counterfeit Phosphor Yeezys.

  • Colorway
  • Style – MNVN
  • Size – Ranging from 4 to 16 (US)

1.1. How to scan it

  • Get the Legit Check App
  • Open & Tap Barcode scanner
  • Point the camera to the box
  • Analyze the results

Look for matches that provide evidence of its authenticity.

1.2. Authentic barcode

  • The right details match this pair.
  • Various results show the: Yeezy 700 MNVN, Triple Black, FV4440 (style-code).

1.3. Fake barcode

  • The wrong shoes come up.
  • Instead of the Yeezy 700 MNVN Phosphoer, we get the Yeezy 350 V2.

A perfect match is when both the size and colorway on the results align with those on the box.

If only one of these matches, the box should be considered fake.

  3. The date of manufacturing:
    • Authentic: Consistent size, font-weight, and spacing between symbols.
    • Fake: Thin, small, improperly spaced, and numbers placed too close (especially on the right side of the slash).
  4. The appearance of the MALE/MÂLE text:
    • Both authentic and fake may or may not have this inscription, so it’s not a reliable indicator.
  5. The “adidas ®” prints:
    • Authentic: “adidas” text and “®” symbol are not in contact.
    • Fake: “adidas” text and “®” symbol are too close, making contact.

  • Left Shoe (Wearer’s View):
    • Authentic: Left laces below right laces.
    • Fake: Deviation from this lacing pattern is a sign of a fake product.

Zooming into the real vs fake Yeezy MNVN:

  • Authentic: Follow the correct lacing pattern.
  • Fake: “Inverted lacing pattern”, but note that this may not apply to relaced sneakers.

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. Profile

  • Authentic: Larger text with the outline closer to the patch with lacing.
  • Fake: Smaller text with the outline further from the patch, both at the top and bottom of the “700” text.

6. Toe box

  • Authentic: Narrower patch, indicated by a narrower green line.
  • Fake: Wider patch, indicated by a wider green line.

7. Back

  1. Top Rear “U” Shape:
    • Authentic: Wider “U” shape at the top.
    • Fake: Narrower “U” shape at the top.
  2. Middle Cage “U” Shape:
    • Authentic: Wider “U” shaped patch on the cage.
    • Fake: Narrower “U” shaped patch on the cage.
  3. Side Empty Patches:
    • Authentic: Shorter and wider empty patches on the sides.
    • Fake: Longer and narrower empty patches on the sides.

8. Reflectiveness

  • Authentic Yeezys:
    • Material shines moderately.
    • 3M material appears grey/white.
  • Fake Yeezys:
    • Material shines excessively.
    • 3M material appears yellow.

9. Insole

We’ll look at the insole’s YEEZY and adidas logos.

  • Authentic:
    • Letters “Y” in the “YEEZY” text are thinner on the bottom side.
    • Letters in the “adidas” text are thinner.
  • Fake:
    • Letters “Y” in the “YEEZY” text are too thick on the bottom side.
    • Letters in the “adidas” text are too thick.

Shortlist: Legit check your Yeezy 700 MNVN

  1. Scan the barcode of the Yeezy 700 MNVN using the Legit Check App.
  2. Verify the size tag for inconsistencies in the printing quality.
  3. Inspect the box label for its serial numbers and sizes.
  4. Ensure the lacing style of the Yeezy 700 MNVN follows the correct style: right lace under in the right shoe and left lace under in the left shoe pattern.
  5. Check the details on the side of your Yeezys. Most fake MNVN Yeezys have their “700” text looking too thin.
  6. Analyze the shoes on the toe box from a top-down view angle. Fake shoes often have a V-shape on the toe box that looks too narrow, while authentic shoes have a wider V-shape.
  7. Examine the MNVN Yeezys from the back. Fake Yeezys may have a narrower “U” shape in the middle and at the top of the shoes, with long and narrow empty patches on the sides.
  8. Verify the 3M Reflective material on the side of the shoes. Fake Yeezys may have material that shines too bright and has a yellow hue, unlike the legit shoes, which shine less and have a shade of grey/white.
  9. Inspect the insole’s print. Fake Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN pairs may have text on the insole that looks too thick.

This list summarizes the key indicators to help you authenticate your Yeezy 700 MNVN.
