Scan the Barcode: Authenticate by scanning the barcode. Fake Yeezys often display results for different pairs, colorways, and sizes.
Check the Size Tag: Examine the size tag. Counterfeit Yeezy 380 Mist pairs commonly have inaccurately weighted and placed text on the size tag.
Verify the Box Label: Inspect the box label. Authentic European boxes should have 6 sizes and a “V10” inscription, while American boxes should have 3 sizes and a “V02” or “V03” inscription. Fake boxes may have twisted inscriptions.
Lace Placement: Check the lace placement. On the right shoe, the right side of the lace should go underneath, and on the left shoe, the left side should go underneath, assuming a top-down view as if you’re wearing the shoes.
Examine the Boost Sole: Analyze the boost sole. Fake pellets often have an incorrect shape.
Front Block: Check the front block of your Yeezys. Fake Yeezys may have a less curvy appearance compared to authentic sneakers.
Verify Middle Stitching: Examine the middle stitching. Counterfeit Yeezys may have thin and less deeply stamped stitching.
Toe Box: The toe box of fake Yeezys is typically too arched and curvy.
3M Reflective Shininess: Verify the 3M shininess of the Yeezys. Fake shoes are often less shiny than authentic ones.
