The fastest way to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta is to check the size tag inside each shoe.

How to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta (Triple Black)

Step 1: Scan the barcode of your Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta

For the first step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta sneakers, we are going to scan the barcode, found on the label glued to the box of the Yeezys.

This makes the barcode a reliable indicator of authenticity that can help you ensure you only purchase the original Adidas manufactured sneakers.

When you are ready to scan the barcode of your Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta, 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 colourway, style and size.

  • Colorway – VANTA (FU6684)
  • Style – 700 V2
  • Size – From 4 to 17 (US)

How do you scan your Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta using the Legit Check App?

First of all, you’ll have to install the Legit Check App on your iOS and/or Android device.

Once you are ready to scan, tap on the barcode scan icon and focus in on the barcode on the box of your Yeezy Boost 700 V2.

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 V2 Vanta.

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 Boost 700 V2 for authenticity, read our article here.

Step 2: Fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta size tag

As we have mentioned at the top of the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta article, the size tag is the most reliable source to check when you want to legit check the Yeezy 700 V2 Vanta.

First of all, let’s have a look at the Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta real vs fake image, and then explain the flaws on the replica pair.

fake vs real yeezy vanta

Now that you’ve had a look at the reference real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta image above, let us explain the flaws on the fake shoes so that we can be assured that everything is clear.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” printing

The “MADE IN CHINA” text at the top of the size tag is commonly flawed on the fake Yeezy pairs, and not only on the 700 V2 Vantas, but on each model.

As it is visible in the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta image above, the fake shoes have their “MADE IN CHINA” text looking too thin, while the legit shoes have their text looking thicker.

2 – The APE/CLU/EVN number print

Please note that CLU, APE or EVN inscriptions might be found here and you should not worry if you’ve got any of them.

All three inscriptions can be found on an authentic or a fake pair, so we do not consider this area to be a reliable spot for identifying a fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2.

However, what you need to pay attention to is the quality of printing here. Look out for ink blotting, fuzzy lines, and other signs of poor quality of printing.

3 – The “adidas ®” text

This is one of the most blatant flaws that a fake pair of Yeezys can have, even though it is just a little printing.

The fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vantas have their text looking too thin and improperly spaced between the letters, as there is too much empty space between the letters.

On the other hand, the legit Yeezy Vantas have their letters looking thicker and placed closer to each other.

The most blatant flaw on the fake Yeezys is that they sometimes have their registered trademark “®” symbol placed as close to the “adidas” text as they make contact.

Even though that’s not visible in the real vs fake Yeezy Vanta image above (since we’ve used the best replica available on the market) we have mentioned it just because it is something that you should keep an eye for.

Bear in mind that the authentic Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta pairs never have their “adidas” and “®” printings making contact.

4 – The last line of printings

On the bottom right corner of the fake Yeezy Vanta’s size tag, we have pointed out how the fake Yeezys have their text looking thicker and using a different font than the one used for the text met on the retail shoes, which is also thinner than the fake shoes’ text.

5 – The date of manufacturing of the shoes

Moving on in the middle-right side of the size tags on both the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta, we are now going to talk about the print which indicates the date of manufacturing of the shoes.

The fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta pair has its numbers looking thicker than the legit shoes’ numbers, and not only that, but the fake shoes also have an improper amount of space between the numbers.

On the other hand, the legit Yeezy Vantas have the same amount of space between each number, including the slash, while the fake shoes have an uneven amount of space between the characters.

6 – The size number text

This is basically the line that indicates the size of the shoes in different measuring systems.

The fake shoes have their “255” number placed below the “CHN” text looking too thin.

7 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

Inconsistent lines on the “N” from the “CHN” text show where the printer ink has pooled between the “N” lines which make it look thicker and bolder. These inconsistent lines are a telltale sign that the sneaker is fake.

It’s all down to the quality of the print, and this does not occur on the real size tag.

Step 3: Real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta box label

Next, you will proceed to inspect the box label of your Yeezy 700 V2. 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. If you’re questioning yourself, this is one of the best ways on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 sneakers.

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.

real vs fake yeezy 500

The international version of the Yeezys, 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 Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta pair.

Step 4: Check the lacing style of your Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta

Proceeding to the fourth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta sneakers, we are going to have a quick look at how the legit Yeezys are supposed to be laced up like.

The authentic deadstock (unworn, in factory condition) Yeezys always have a specific manner of being laced, so let’s check that out with the help of the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta image below.

real vs fake yeezy vanta

The problem with the fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta sneakers is that the laces are inverted.

By inverted, we mean that the counterfeit Yeezy Boost 700 V2 pairs don’t follow the correct pattern as the authentic laces, as the right lace (from the wearer’s view) is above the left lace on the replica shoes.

That is something which you’ll never see on an authentic Yeezy Boost 700 V2 pair that’s either unworn and/or never relaced.

In order for you to understand this better, below this paragraph you can see a real vs fake Yeezy 700 V2 Vanta image which will explain this better to you.

This is because the fake manufacturer can choose to lace their sneakers in the same style as the authentic pattern although it is a replica.

Thus, we do not consider this to be a foolproof indicator of authenticity.

Step 5: Analyze the toe box of your Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta

As for the fifth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta sneakers, we are going to have a look at the toe box of the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vantas.

real vs fake yeezy 700 v2 vanta

By looking at the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta image above, you can see how the fake Yeezys have their toe box looking over-inflated, as they are curvier than the legit shoes.

By that, we mean that the fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 pair has its toe box looking thicker, bigger, and more massive than the toe box of the legit shoes.

On the other hand, the retail Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vantas has a more deflated look than the fake Yeezys’ shape on the toe box.

Step 6: Inspect the rear details on your Yeezys

As for the sixth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta, we are going to have a look at the real vs fake Yeezy Vanta images in order to see how the spot fake Yeezy Vanta pairs by checking the rear side’s details.

fake vs real yeezy 700 v2 vanta

In the fake vs real Yeezy Vanta image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their “V” shape on the back of the sneakers looking smaller and narrower than the shape of the legit shoes.

On the other hand, the legit shoes have their patch which forms the “V” shape looking bigger and wider than the fake shoes’ patch, which is visible in the fake vs real Yeezy Vanta image above.

Step 7: Fake vs real Yeezy Vanta pattern (the details on the side of the shoes)

Proceeding to the seventh step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta sneakers, we are going to have a quick look at the details on the side of the shoes.

First of all, we are going to have a look at the reference real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta image below in order to easily visualise the differences between the fake vs real Yeezy Vanta pairs.

how to spot fake yeezy 700 v2 vanta

In the Yeezy Vanta fake vs real image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes don’t have their details in tune with the legit shoes’ details.

First of all, looking at the five holes/dots placed on the cage of the shoes, you can see how the fake shoes have their holes looking wider and bigger than the dots seen on the retail shoes.

On the other hand, the authentic Vanta 700 V2s have their holes on the cage looking less wide and smaller than the fake shoes’ holes.

Then, inspecting the two pods on the midsole of the Vanta 700 V2s, you can see how the fake shoes have their pods looking bigger and wider as well, while the authentic Vantas have their pods looking narrower and smaller than the fake shoes’.

Step 8: Inspect your shoes for the heel bump

As for the eighth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta sneakers, we are going to have a quick look at the shoes for the bump on the heel, inspecting them once again from the side.

real vs fake yeezy 700 v2 vanta

In the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their bump on the heel side looking less accentuated than the legit shoes’ bump.

When we say “heel bump”, we are talking about how curvy the shoes look on the back side, when inspected from the back.

This being said, you can see in the fake vs real Yeezy Vanta image above how the fake shoes have their heel bump less curvy than the bump seen on the authentic shoes.

Step 9: Look at the V-shape on the toe box of your Vantas

Proceeding to the ninth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta sneakers, we are going to have a quick look at the toe box of the shoes, but this time, from a top-down view angle.

First of all, let’s see the real vs fake Yeezy Vanta image in order to visualise the differences between the two shoes.

Most of the time, the counterfeit sneakers will have the grey suede area on the toe box which looks like a “V” looking a lot wider, making it look like a “U” instead, which is not what we seek for, on the authentic Yeezys.

On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy Boost 700 V2 sneakers will never have their toe box’s “V” shape looking wider or larger, as on the replica sneakers.

Step 10: Check the 3M reflectiveness on your Vantas

As for the tenth step of the guide on how to spot fake Yeezy Vanta sneakers, we are going to have a look at the reference fake vs real Yeezy Vanta image with the lights off, and with the flashlight on, in order to reveal the 3M reflecting material.

In the fake vs real Yeezy Vanta image above, we have pointed out on the main areas of the 3M material’s glowing in order to show you how the fake shoes have their material shining poorly and of a worse quality than the legit shoes’ material.

Step 11: Check the insole on the Yeezy Boost 700 V2

On the front side of the insole, there is obviously a print that says “adidas”. Let’s see the real vs fake Yeezy 700 Wave Runner reference image, and then the explaining of the flaws on the replica Yeezys.

yeezy 700 insole front side

First of all, on the classic three-striped Adidas logo, you can see how the smallest line has a curvy edge on the left side of it, and how, on the legit sneakers, the edge is sharp instead.

Then, on to the actual “adidas” print, you can see how the letters “a” and “d” have an empty space between the round symbol and the stick on the right side of the letters on the fake Yeezy Vantas, and how, on the legit sneakers, there is no blank space on the bottom side of the letters, and in fact, it is filled with black paint.

Lastly here, you can see how the replica Yeezy 700 V2 Vanta insole has a different font-weight, as the letter “s” is a lot thicker on the fake Yeezys than on the retail pairs.
