How to spot fake Yeezy sneakers

This is the question that we get all of the time, and the answer to this that cannot be boiled down to a simpler answer than this: inspect the size tag.

The size tag is the top answer to the question on whether you have fake or real Yeezy sneakers, but we are not here to link only the size tag for every model and colourway since the same flaws from a model apply to every colourway as well.

With all of this being said, and now that you know what we are going to talk about in this ultimate Yeezy fake vs real guide, let’s move on to the guide itself.

How to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V1 (fake vs real)

First of all, we are going to inspect the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 350 V1, since it was the very first Yeezy Boost 350 model.

If you want to go directly to the full Yeezy Boost 350 V1 real vs fake guide, you can click here in order to see the ultimate guide which contains all of the 350 V1 colourways compared.

Yeezy Boost 350 V1 Turtle Dove fake vs real

As of now, we are only going to focus on the Yeezy real vs fake size tag, since it is the best way to tell apart between the Yeezy fake vs real 350 V1 shoes.

Before we start explaining this point, it’s worth noting that the Yeezy Boost 350 Turtle Dove version only comes in full US sizes.

If you see something like a pair sized US 9.5, US 10.5 and so on — that’s an instant tell for a fake, but this only applies on the Turtle Dove colourway!

Now, let’s have a quick look at the reference real vs fake Yeezy image below, and then, we’ll proceed to explain the flaws on the fake Yeezys.

Yeezy 350 V1 Turtle Dove, Pirate Black, Oxford Tan and Moonrock fake vs real size tag

Now that you’ve had a look at the Yeezy fake vs real 350 V1 comparison image above, let’s move on to the tells.

As a side note, we want to mention that we recommend you to first look at the sixth point in the Yeezy fake vs real 350 V1 image above since most of the legit checks stop there due to the fact that it is a common flaw on the fake Yeezys.

  1. Notice how the characters here use a different font. Besides that, the fake size tag’s “0” character is too bolded at the top and at the bottom. Also worth noting is the fact that the “10” is not centred on the fake size tag.
  2. Compare the “½” character in both size tags and you’ll notice the different bolding weight, especially on the slash.
  3. Not only both “4” character use a different font than the authentic version, but both “4” characters on the fake size tag are different from each other. Besides, the gap in the character (in the middle of “4”) varies
  4. Here, your size tag can have “APY” written — that’s totally fine, authentic size tags come with both “APE” and “APY” prints. Nonetheless, notice the bolder font on the fake size tag. Also worth noting is how the slash in “MALE/MÂLE is bolder, touching the APE font on the fake size tag. That does not happen on the authentic Yeezy 350 V1 size tag. 
  5. Once again, we can point out the bolder font on the fake size tag. Pay attention to the “Q” in this example and look as well at how the printing quality is lower on the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V1 size tag. The lines in “A” are fuzzier on the counterfeit tag.
  6. This is the most important tell in my opinion and we’ll have a closer look at this below, in a separate picture. The ® character is hardly legible on the authentic size tag, but the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V1 size tag has a completely dark circle printed over there.
  7. This code will vary but once again you’ll have to find inconsistencies with the print. Notice how the last characters on the fake tag (“00002”) are sinking or how the “4” at the beginning of this code is smaller than the “Q”. Authentic size tag is better printed in this regard.
  8. The “8” character comes in a different shape.
  9. Irregular print, one more time. Notice the bottom line of the “2” that’s too fat or the fuzzier print lines.

Let’s also have a closer look at the size tag again, on both the real vs fake Yeezy sneakers, in order to see the flaws on the replica Yeezy Boost 350 V1 easier.

Yeezy 350 V1 Pirate Black fake vs real size tag

It is worth mentioning again since the fake Yeezy 350 V1’s have this flaw commonly.

The counterfeit Yeezy Boost 350 V1 sneakers usually have their registered trademark (R) symbol filled black so that the letter “R” inside the circle is not visible.

On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V1 sneakers never had they circle filled as so the letter “R” would not be visible – you should always see an empty circle with the letter “R” inside, on the authentic 350 V1’s.

Yeezy Boost 350 V1 Moonrock (fake vs real)

The second colourway which we’ll inspect of the Yeezy Boost 350 V1 is the Moonrock.

With this being said, let’s move on to the fake vs real Yeezy 350 V1 Moonrock images in order to spot the flaws on the suede panel of the replica 350 V1 easier.

Yeezy Boost suede patch fake vs real

There are a couple of caveats to this flaw, which are visible in the real vs fake Yeezy image above as well:

1. The colour of the Yeezy 350 V1 patch may vary due to lightning

2. It’s harder to take this tell into account when assessing used pairs, as the patches get altered with wear.

With this being said for the Yeezy fake vs real Boost 350 V1 Moonrock, let’s move on to the Oxford Tan colourway.

Yeezy Boost 350 V1 Oxford Tan (fake vs real)

As for the Oxford Tans, we are going to inspect the suede patch once again on both the real vs fake Yeezys.

How to buy spot fake yeezy guide

In the real vs fake Yeezy example above, the patch is noticeably bigger on the fakes. Also, have a look at the difference in terms of not only texture differences but also colour.

The authentic suede patch has much more of an Oxford Tan shade than the almost brown one on the fake Adidas Yeezy pair.

Yeezy Boost 350 V1 Pirate Black (fake vs real)

As for the last colourway of the Yeezy Boost 350 V1, we will check the Yeezy fake vs real 350 V1 Pirate Black.

Although checking the boost sole used to be the go-to detail you’d check, nowadays it’s just harder (but not impossible) to legit check the Yeezy Boost 350 V1 by looking at it.

We’ve identified four main flags when spotting fake vs real Adidas Yeezy Boost 350.

Yeezy Boost 350 V1 Fake vs Real
  1. As highlighted with the hand emoji, fake Yeezy 350 have a “ghost boost dot” that shouldn’t be there.
  2. Boost dots are too close on the fakes and less defined.
  3. Authentic boost is visibly more defined.
  4. Fake boost is made out of circular pellets, while authentic boost is more “cut”.

How to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 (fake vs real)

Moving a little bit further in time, we have now reached the Yeezy Boost 350 V2, which is probably one of the most loved Adidas x Yeezy models ever.

If you want to see the full library of guides on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 sneakers, you are warmly invited to click here.

Due to the demand of the Yeezy 350 V2 on the authentic pairs, there are at the same time, a lot of replicas, which are getting better day by day.

Our job here is to teach you how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 shoes, so let’s move on to the size tag of the Yeezy fake vs real 350 V2.

As we have previously mentioned, the size tag is the best indicator of a fake Yeezy 350 V2, and so, the flaws apply to every 350 V2 models, even to the reflective and non-reflective Yeezys, such as the 350 V2 Static.

Even though some size tags might differ a little bit, such as having small differences between the very first release, which is Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga, and to the newer releases, like the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cinder.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga 1.0 fake vs real

First, let’s have a quick look at the Yeezy fake vs real Beluga 1.0 since it was the very first Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Release.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

beluga fake vs real guide

As you can see in the Yeezy fake vs real 350 V2 image above, we found 5 main flaws on the replica Yeezys, which is a lot, but without these, spotting fake 350 V2’s would be harder.

Now, let’s move on to the explaining of the flaws met on the counterfeit Yeezy Boost 350 V2.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” is too thick on the fake Belugas, and this is the most obvious on the letter “M”

2 – The “MALE/MALE” text is significantly too thick on the fake sneakers, and on the legit ones, it is thinner

3 – The “adidas” and the “R” will never make contact on a legit pair of Belugas, and some of the replica sneakers do have these in contact.

But in our case, the problem is that these two elements are too thick, and the legit ones are thinner

4 – The “07/16” text means the date that the sneakers have been released in; June 2016. Most of the time, the fake sneakers will have the “16” looking a lot thicker than it has to look like, just as in our case

5 – Look out for any text that’s out of shape. In this case, the “265” has the number “6” looking bigger than the rest of the numbers, and we are not going to mention the thickness because the problem is obvious here too

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Copper fake vs real

As for the second release of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2, the Copper, we are going to inspect the Yeezy fake vs real Copper’s boost soles.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

yeezy copper boost

In the Yeezy fake vs real Copper image above, you can easily notice how the fake boost has its pellets looking too rigid compared to the pellets on the authentic Copper V2’s boost sole.

While the striped circles appear to be randomly generated to the genuine sneakers, on the fakes you will notice a mathematical pattern to the circles. 

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Red Stripe fake vs real

As for the Yeezy 350 V2 Core Black/Red (Red Stripe), we are going to check out the size tag on both the Yeezy fake vs real Red Stripes.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

legit check yeezy core

As you can see in the real vs fake Yeezy image above, we have used a pair of the Yeezy V2 Core Black Red, but the same flaws apply for all of the Core Black colourways.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” text is too thick on the fake size tag, and this is the most visible in this case on the letter “M”

2 – The “½” character is also too thick on the fake size tag, and besides, the “1” is placed too far away from the slash (“/”)

3 – One of the major flaws on every fake Yeezy V2 size tag is that the “R” next to the “adidas” text at the bottom of the size tag makes contact with the text.

On the other hand, the legit Yeezys will never have the”adidas” and the “R” in contact

4 – The “16” means the year that the sneakers have been released in, and in this case, it means 2016. The problem with the fake “16” text is that it is too thick, and the authentic text is thinner

5 – The letter “N” in the “CHN” text is first of all, too thick, and second of all, it has the rightest leg looking weirdly arched and curvy, and the authentic leg is straight and sharp

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Green Stripe fake vs real

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

For now, let’s have a look at the reference real vs fake Yeey image in order to see how to spot fake Yeezy pairs by the boost sole.

fake vs real yeezy

Looking at the Yeezy fake vs real Boost 350 V2 Green Stripe image above, you can easily notice how the counterfeit Yeezys have their bubbles looking way too rigid than the bubbles met on the legit Yeezys.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Oreo fake vs real

Now we are going to look at the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black/White, known as Oreo.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Yeezy Boost Oreo Size Tag

Now that you’ve had a look at the real vs fake Yeezy image above, et’s move on to the tells which will let you know how to spot fake Yeezy.

  • The “Made In China” Label Print.

On the first row of the label is the Made In China print which indicates the country where the sneakers were manufactured.

Here, you will notice that on the fake size tag, the text is not as sharply printed compared to the well-defined characters on the authentic size tag.

Also, you will notice that the spacing between the characters on the fake pair is not even whereas, the letters on the original label are evenly spaced out.

  • The “US UK FR JP CHN” Print Text

This is the country indicator row. The first thing you will notice here is that on the authentic pair, the text is placed in the centre of the row with equal spaces between the two lines bounding the text.

On the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Oreo, the text is placed closer to the bottom. 

Overall, the text is thicker on the authentic label, whereas the letters in the fake are slightly thinner. Pay attention to the displacement of the R in FR as well as the uneven spacing between the letters in the fake size tag.

  • The Size Number Print

This row displays the size of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Oreo sneakers according to their respective countries as printed in the second row.

On this row, the numbers appear to be significantly thinner on the fake then they are on the original size tag.

You will also notice how the ½ character is weirdly printed as opposed to being well aligned with the rest of the numbers on the row. This is a clear confirmation of a replica Yeezy Oreo.

  • The Appearance of the MALE/MÂLE

Here, you can see that while all the letters are singly printed on the real size tag with none touching the other, on the fake size tag, the L & E and the  & L are joint. Also, the M in both MALE and MÂLE is misprinted as well on the fake.

These inconsistencies in the fake size tag inscription are as a result of ink blotting which can be attributed to the lower quality of equipment used by fake manufacturers in printing.

  • The Adidas Copyright ®

On the authentic size tag, you will notice that the ® character is well spaced out from the Adidas text.

However, this is not the case for the fake size tag where the ® character is sitting on top of the “s” in “Adidas”. This is as a result of ink pooling, a sign of poor print quality on fakes.

  • The Adidas Text Print 

You will find this text at the bottom left-hand corner of the size tag. On closer inspection, you will see that the text is spaced out differently on the authentic label while also being significantly thicker than it appears on the fakes.

  • The Serial Number

This refers to the serial number on the last row of the size tag. Pay attention to how the numbers are smaller than the letters on both authentic and fake tags.

You will notice that on the fake size tag, the “3” in “93” is however lower than it’s supposed to be.

In addition to that, the text here is bolder on the fake as opposed to the thinner and better-defined characters in the original size tag.

  • The # Serial Number 

Here, you will notice that there is more space between letters on the fake size tag compared to the more compact characters on the authentic size tag.

Also, note how there is less negative space in the middle of the # character on the size tag of the replica.

  • The ART Number

The general lower quality printing on this row creates inconsistencies that betray the fake.

Watch out for ink blotting, ink pooling and other discrepancies which can be attributed to the lower quality of equipment used in the printing of the fake size tags.

  • The APE Number Print

Here, you will notice the overall poor print quality in the text. This is especially evident in the P which is almost illegible on fake, compared to the visible letter P on the authentic pair.

  • The Spacing Between the Letters

Going back to the third row of the size print, we would like to emphasize yet another inconsistency on this row which is the spacing.

There is too much space between the characters on the fake size tag and you will also notice the poor alignment and arrangement of the characters here as well.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Bred fake vs real

Going to the simple Black and Red colourway, we have the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Bred.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

As you might be used to already, we are first going to have a look at the reference real vs fake Yeezy image in order to easily learn how to spot fake Yeezys.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Yeezy-Boost-350-V2-Bred-Boost-Guide-1200x1200.jpg

On the authentic pair, the boost sole is quite “bubbly” in terms of structure and there is less differentiation between the boost pellets.

You will also see that the striped circles on the boost are more prominent and better defined.

On the replica, however, the striped circles have a more structured and mathematical pattern in their arrangement, which missed the randomness of the pattern printing as in the original boost sole.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cream White fake vs real

Moving to the simple all-white colourway, this time we have the Cream White, known also as the Triple White 350 V2.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Yeezy Cream Size Tag Fake vs Real

Please note that each colourway in the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 line has its inconsistencies and what may be a misprint on one could be considered a tell of originality on another.

That said, below are the inconsistencies to look out for in the V2 Cream.

  • The “Made In China” Label Print

This text indicates that the sneakers were manufactured in China. The main inconsistency here is in the difference in the quality of printing between the real and the fake size tags.

For instance, on the fake size tag, you will notice that the lines in M are jagged while the ones in N are thicker than necessary. This is in contrast to the well-shaped letters on the authentic size tag.

Also, pay attention to the spacing between this MADE IN CHINA row and the line below it. While space is bigger on the authentic pair, the text is almost sitting on the line on the fake Yeezy Cream size tag.

  • The “US UK FR JP CHN” Print Text

Here, yet again you will notice the difference in print quality. There is no consistency in the size of the letters on the fake tag, in some cases, the text is thicker like in “US” and sometimes it’s thinner like in “CHN”. 

Regarding the line width, pay attention to the consistency in the line widths between the text and the two lines above and below it.

  • The Size Number Print

On this row, we also spotted some inconsistencies in the characters but note that they are likely to vary from labels to labels.

Here, you will notice that the two “4” characters under FR on the fake tag look slightly different due to the variance in line width. The same variance in line width is also noticeable in the “0” in “10” under the US on the fake tag.

As common with any fake size tag that has fractions, here you can see that ½ character is narrower and aligned differently compared to the well-aligned and bolder character on the authentic size tag.

  • 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 tell for identifying a fake Yeezy Boost V2 Cream.

Nonetheless, you should pay attention to the quality of printing here. Look out for ink blotting, fuzzy lines and other signs of poor quality of printing.

  • The Dot Above the Square Print

There is always a small dot above the square print on the real size tags. The lack of any dot instantly reveals a replica.

While this specific fake Yeezy Cream tag has this dot printed, due to being a top-tier replica, this is an indicator you should always watch out for on your size tag.

  • The Adidas Text Print 

You will find this text on the bottom left-hand corner of the size tag. Here, you can see that the fake “Adidas” text is slightly thinner, thus leading to different spacing between letters.

You will also notice some misalignment in the letters on the fake size tag. This is especially evident in the “d” and the “i” which are higher than the other characters. 

Also, pay attention to the imprecise print which is visible on the second “d” in the text on the replica.

  • The Adidas Copyright ®

The ® should never touch the Adidas text. As you can see in the picture, the character is spaced from the text in the authentic V2 Cream White.

While the ® does not touch the size tag on this specific fake size tag either, you should always watch out for its position as it can be an instant callout of a fake. 

  • The Serial Number

This refers to the last series of numbers on the last row of the size tag. Please note that these numbers are likely to vary and as such, you should not consider this specific inscription as an indicator of authenticity when you need to identify a fake pair of the Yeezy Cream White. 

Rather, look for inconsistencies in print quality. You will notice that on the fake size tag, the text is slanted and the letters look jagged. Whereas, on the original Yeezy V2 Cream White size tag, the characters are all well-aligned and defined.

  • The # Serial Number 

As the serial number, below it, this code is also likely to vary so what you should watch out for should be the inconsistencies in the text. For instance here, you will notice that the two “3” characters are different in terms of shape and size.

  • The ART Number 

Again, pay attention to the inconsistency in the print quality here. You will observe that the “ART” print is slightly thinner on fakes while the “CP9366” appears to be printed in lower quality.

Also, pay attention to how the “9” in 9633 on the fake size tag looks distorted which is quite different from its appearance on the original size tag.

  • The Appearance of the MALE/MÂLE

Over here, both the fake and original size tag may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. Both are perfectly fine either way. As such, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy Cream.

  • The Manufacturer Date Print

This text indicates the date of production of the sneakers. Please note that this text may vary as production dates vary and thus, we do not take it to be a reliable tell when authenticating the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cream.

However, you should pay attention to the size of the text which is significantly thinner on the fake pair than it appears on the original label. 

  • The First Line 

On the fake size tag, on the black line that separates the first row from the second row, you will observe a thin white line on it. This can be attributed to the lower quality of equipment used in the printing by the fake manufacturers because the black line is uninterrupted on the size tag of the authentic Yeezy V2 Cream.

With this being said, let’s move on to the next Yeezy real vs fake colourway.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zebra fake vs real

Now we are going to talk about the Zebras – one of the most hyped Yeezy Boost 350 V2 pair.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zebra Size Tag
Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zebra Size Tag

As you can see, we’ve drawn out the inconsistencies by highlighting them and attaching a number next to it.

Here’s a map explaining what those numbers point to in this fake vs real Yeezy 350 V2 Zebra comparison.

  1. The uneven spacing between the letters on the fake tag and how bold they are the first dead giveaway. Notice how smudged the text is on the replica tag — this hints to the low-quality printing machines used by fake manufacturers. Notice the size and thickness of the letters on the fake product: for instance, the “A” in “CHINA”
  2. The “M” in “MADE IN CHINA” shouldn’t be touching the line the way it is in the fake Yeezy Zebra’s size tag example.  
  3. The “US UK FR JP CHN” row shouldn’t be touching the bottom line the way it is in the fake image. You can also notice the inconsistency in the printing on the bottom side of “U”. 
  4. Look at the size tag in the fake image closely; you’ll see that two different slash characters are being used, i.e 1/3 isn’t written in the same ways as ½. Also, spot the inconsistencies in the text size, particularly in the second “9” which is a lot thinner than the other characters.  
  5. The CLU and APE inscriptions are found on both authentic and fake Yeezy products, so having either of them is fine — we won’t consider this inscription as a reliable way to spot a replica Yeezy Zebra. However, there is a clear difference in the font of the product in the fake image both in its shape and size. Also, the spacing is very weird especially between the numbers 7, 7 and 9 on the “779001” text.  
  6. Look out for a dot on the size tag as its absence indicates a fake. This dot is always present on original Yeezy Zebra even though its placement might vary.  
  7. ® should definitely not touch the “adidas” text and if it is, you’re definitely looking at a counterfeit Adidas Yeezy Zebra. Also, compare the “adidas” text in terms of font and spacing using the example shown above.  
  8. In some cases, the UPC/EAN code might not match that on your box label. That’s not a reason to worry, as this number varies on authentic pairs as well — we want to point out that it’s not a reliable way to spot a fake.
  9. As always, keep an eye out for low-quality text prints. In the image above, there is a little difference in the spacing and font of the “9654” inscription in the fake image. Look at how the letter “C” is shaped differently than the one found on the original product.
  10. There’s also a weird spacing on the “MALE/MÂLE” text in the fake image when compared to the original. Bear in mind that some Yeezy pairs may not have the MALE/MÂLE text. 
  11. This inscription is revealing the production date of the sneaker you’re looking at. Analyzing the production date inscription is not a reliable way to legit check Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zebras. This is because the product was released multiple times, therefore, the date varies. Instead, you need to keep an eye out for inconsistencies in the text. In this Yeezy fake vs real Zebra comparison, we can point out that the bottom of the 6 “circle” is thinner than the rest.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Frozen Yellow fake vs real

Going to the 350 V2 Semi Frozen Yellow, known as the Yeebras as well, we are going to check the size tag on the Yeezy real vs fake shoes.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

real vs fake yeezy

1 – First of all, there is too much spacing between “M” and “A” in “MADE” on the fake Yeezys

2 – Also, different spacing between the text and those two lines. It can be easily noticed for the “US” and “FR” text on the counterfeit Yeezy Frozen Yellow sneakers

3 – The letters “A” and “P” in “APE” are touching on authentic pairs, and on the fake Frozen Yellow sneakers, they don’t make contact

4 – At the same time, the letters “M” and “A” in the word “MALE” are closer on the legit Frozen Yellow Yeezys than on fake pairs. Also, the letter “M” is a little bit bolder on authentic pairs.

5 –  The “®” symbol should not be touching the “adidas” text, as it happens on fakes.

6 – Extra spacing between “77” and “9001” in “APE 779001”

7 – Huge red flag: there is some extra spacing between “C” and “H” in “CHINA” on the fake Frozen Yellows, and on the legit pairs, there isn’t

8 – Sometimes the UPC/EAN code does not match your box label. That is fine, authentic pairs have had that in some cases. What you’ll want to look for is low-quality text print

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga 2.0 fake vs real

Looking at the Yeezy real vs fake Beluga 2.0 sneakers, we will check the toe box of the fake vs real Beluga 2.0 sneakers.

On the authentic pair, you will observe that the boost is a lot more bubbly than the slightly stiffer one you would find on the bottom of a fake pair.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

real or fake yeezy boost beluga

Also, there is less differentiation between the boost pellets on the real V2 Beluga compared to the more indented ones on the fake pair. For the striped circles, they are better defined and appear to be randomly generated in the boost.

On the other hand, on the fake Yeezy Beluga pair, you will notice that the striped circles are all well structured, appearing to be a bit more mathematically generated as opposed to the randomized pattern on the real pair.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint fake vs real

Another pair that blew up and people loved it is the 350 V2 Blue Tint. For the Blue tints, we’ll inspect the size tag of the Yeezy real vs fake Blue Tints.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint Size Tag Fake Vs Real

Here is the list of the differences we’ve identified on the size tag;

  • 1. “M” & “A” In “Made IN China”

Notice here how there’s different spacing between the letters. This spacing does vary every now and then on authentic pairs.

However, one blatant tell for a fake is the bolder left side of the M or the lower right leg of the A. These inconsistencies will not appear on an authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint size tag,

  • 2. The Country List

Let’s draw your attention to the spacing between the lines and the text.

The “JP” is almost touching on the fake tag, unlike the authentic tag.

The font used is also different, printed a little bit bolder on the fake Blue Tints (look at “FR” for an example).

  • 3. The Size List

The size row is touching the line on fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint size tag, unlike the real retail example. A telltale sign you may be looking at a fake.

  • 4. CLU Serial Numbers

You will notice that the “C” is bolder, the left side of “U” is inconsistently bold on the replica Blue Tint V2.

Please bear in mind that over here you may find both “CLU” and “APE” prints. Regardless, both inscriptions can be found on an authentic pair, so we won’t consider this area as a reliable tell for how to spot fake Yeezy Blue Tints.

  • 5. Adidas Logo Letters

Inspecting the Adidas Logo you’ll notice that the“i” in “adidas” is touching both “d” letters, unlike the fakes where it only touches the rightmost “d”.

  • 6. Adidas Logo ® Sign

The ® is touching “adidas”, however, on authentic size tags, there’s some spacing between these two.

  • 7. Bottom Serial Number

Although this text may vary, “3” and “N” are touching on the authentic size tag while this contact is not present on the replica tag.

  • 8. Unique Product Code / European Article Number

Sometimes the this UPC/EAN code does not match your box label. That is fine, authentic pairs have had that in some cases. What you’ll want to keep an eye out for is low-quality text print, such as the shape and boldness of the “8”, in this specific example.

  • 9. “MALE/MÂLE”

“MALE/MÂLE” is bolder on the replica size tag. As a consequence, the slash is touching both letters “E” and “M” on the fakes.

Note: Some pairs don’t have the MALE/MÂLE text. That is fine, keep looking for low-quality text print.

  • 10. Manufacturer/Production Date

If you were to extend the slash, it would hit the text below in different places. Moreover, a micro-detail: there is different spacing between “0” and “9” on the two size tags.

Note: The production date text varies so I’m highlighting the fact that it’s not a reliable tell when authenticating the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Blue Tint

  • 11. 12. 13. More “Made In China” Checks

11. “A” inner space is overly-filled on the unauthentic size tag – inconsistency

12. – Different spacing – on fakes, “I” is slightly further from “H”.

13 – “C” in “CHINA” is thicker on the fake size tag.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Sesame fake vs real

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Yeezy Sesame Size Tag

We need to draw your attention that fake size tags vary in print — however, what we want to do is draw attention to:

  1. The usual spots where inconsistenceis can be found
  2. The way an inconsistency looks like

Where can we, then, see them? Let’s have a look at the Yeezy real vs fake Sesame size tag comparison map.

  • The “Made In China” Label Print

On the first row of the size tag you’ll notice the “Made In China” text.

When you inspect the text, on the fake size tag you will notice weird spacing between the letters, as especially evident between the M and the A, whereas on the original size tag, the letters are all evenly spaced.

Apart from the spacing, on the fake size tag, the letters on this line of text vary in shape from the ones on the original sneakers. As shown in the image, the top of the letter C is not well sectioned and the line width of the letter also varies — an indicator of poor attention to detail.

  • The “I” in the “Made In China” Label Print

Upon a closer look, you will notice that there is a flaw in the first “I” in the “Made In China” text as shown in the fake vs real Yeezy Sesame image.

Here, while the edges of the letter on the authentic one are well defined and sharply-printed, on the fake size tag the edges are slightly rounded and lack the definition on the real size tag.

  • The “US UK FR JP CHN” Print Text

On the second row is the US UK FR JP CHN text, the country size indicator.

On the fake size tag, you will notice that this line of text is not as straight and properly put together as the well-arranged one on an authentic pair of Yeezy V2 Sesame.

Also, on the replica size tag, the letters appear to be significantly bolder than the letters on the original, a sign of ink pooling as a result of the poor quality of printing.

Towards the end, you will notice that the CHN touches the upper table line and is not equally spaced between the two table lines. This is quite unlike the characters on the authentic size tag which are evenly spaced between the upper and lower table lines.

  • The Size Number Print

The size number is a text on the third row of the size tag. Again, ink pooling, owing to the poor quality of printing, you will notice that some of the characters on the fake tag are bolder than others.

This is especially noticeable in the first three sizes – 10, 9 1/2 and 44. You will also spot ink blotting on the 9 as well as the uneven spacing between the 1/2 and the slash character.

  • The APE/CLU Number Print

Please bear in mind that over here, you may find both CLU and APE prints on the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Sesame. As both inscriptions can be found on an authentic pair, we don’t consider this indicator to be a reliable tell for how to spot fake Yeezy Sesame.

Nonetheless, there are still inconsistencies to be spotted here. You will notice that the C in the fake size tag varies in line width from the rest of the letters, which seems to be as a result of the poor quality of printing used by fake manufacturers.

  • The Dot on the Adidas Logo

On the bottom left corner of the size tag is the Adidas logo, there is a dot on top of the logo. However, the location and precision of the dot vary on both the real and the fake size tag.

On the real size tag, the dot is located closer to the middle of the logo and it is also quite sharp and precise. In its fake Yeezy Sesame F99710 counter-example, the dot can be found at the top right corner of the logo and there is less precision in the print quality as well.

We’ve added an up-close comparison in the picture, highlighted with a green outline to give you a better view of the dot you will need to inspect.

  • The Adidas Text Print

The Adidas text print is a reliable indicator of an authentic pair of Yeezy V2 Sesame F99710. On the fake size tag, the “adidas” text is too bold and there is no consistency in text print.

As a consequence, all the letters are touching each other, to the point where the text is difficult to read.

This is quite unlike the text on the authentic size tag which is thinner and better defined.

  • The Adidas Copyright ® Location

Another vital indicator when authenticating the Yeezy 350 Sesame is the appearance of the ® character. On the real sneaker, the sign is clearly spaced apart from the “adidas” and the R is very legible inside the circle.

The fake size tag has the ® character touching the “s” of the “adidas” and the letter itself is barely legible, almost like a small black circle.

  • The F Serial Number

For this indicator, the serial number printed on the fake size tag spots uneven spacing and improper alignment, especially evident in the F and Q characters.

You will also notice that the characters on this line have their bottom side smudged, a clear indication of ink blotting due to the poor quality of printing.

It is important to note that this serial number will always vary, so we do not consider a difference in the serial number with this specific inscription as a way of spotting a fake.

  • The Serial Number

On the fake size tag, the font used in printing the serial number on this line is significantly bolder than the thinner and sharper style of the font on the authentic size tag.

You will also notice the weird spacing found in the middle of the # character, which can be attributed to poor attention to detail.

  • The ART Number

Here, you can notice that the font style of the ART number is slightly bolder on the fake size tag.

Because of the thickness of the text, there is less space between the characters — on the authentic counterpart, the text looks thinner and more genuine.

  • The Manufacturer Date Print

You will notice some major differences in the manufacturer date between the authentic and fake size tags.

On the fake size tag, the slash is significantly bolder compared to the thinner and sharper slash on the authentic pair.

Please note that this inscription shows the production date of your Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Sesame. The production date text varies so we do not consider the date to be a reliable tell when authenticating the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Sesame.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Butter fake vs real

A yellow pair which looks just like butter, as it is in its name too – this time we will look at the Butter Yeezy real vs fake.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Adidas Yeezy Boost Butter Size Tag

Now let’s proceed to the flaws met on the replica Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Butter.

  • 1. The “Made In China” Label Print

The Made in China print on the size tag indicates that the Yeezy V2 Butter was made in China. While the fake and original size tags may both read the same thing, there is a huge difference in the quality of printing.

As shown in the image below, on the fake size tag, the shape of the C, the lower right bottom of N and the second and third legs of M are not consistent with the rest of the letters on that row.

On the real size tag, however, there are no inconsistencies to be spotted in the text, be it in font style, shape and spacing.

We understand how, in this specific comparison, the “MADE IN CHINA” text is slightly scuffed on the authentic pair — this is normal and happens with wear.

We’re comparing an authentic size tag from a worn pair to see how, even in the worst-case scenario, there are still flaws to be found.

  • 2. The “US UK FR JP CHN” Print Text

On the second row is the “US UK FR JP CHN” country indicator print text. On the fake tag, you will notice that the text is significantly bolder with signs of ink pooling owing to the poor quality of printing.

The real size tag features thinner and finely shaped letters free of ink pooling or blotting.

  • 3. The size number print

The third row of the size tag features numbers which are supposed to be aligned with their corresponding countries on the second row.

On authentic size tags, the numbers are well aligned, printed directly under the centre of the US/UK/FR/JP/CHN text box.

On the fake size tags, however, the inscriptions are poorly aligned and arranged differently.

  • 4. The APE/CLU Number Print

Please note that on the size tag of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Butter, you may find both CLU and APE prints.

Regardless, both inscriptions can be found on an authentic pair, so we do not consider this inscription as a reliable tell for how to spot fake Yeezy V2 Butter.

  • 5. The Adidas logo

On the bottom left corner of the size tag is the Adidas logo.

Due to the bad quality printing, on the fake Yeezy V2 Butter size tag, the letters of the logo are clearly bolder and closely packed such that all the letters are touching each other, to the point where the text is harder to read.

The fine printing on the authentic one, however, has thinner letters with a better spacing which makes it a lot easier to read.

  • 6. The Adidas Copyright ® Location

The appearance of the ® character on the size tag is critical in the authentication of your sneakers. 

This ® symbol should never touch the s in “adidas” text below it as seen in the fake size tag inscription. The ® should be spaced apart from the Adidas logo on the original version, however.

Also, while on the authentic size tag the ® character is relatively legible, on the fake tag it’s completely illegible, almost like a small black dot with very little distinction of the letter R.

  • 7. The code number print

On the last row of the size tag is the FQS number print. On the fake size tag, there is a clear variation in the space between letters and you will also notice that the F and Q are not properly aligned and all letters have their bottom side smudged, an indication of ink pooling owing to the bad quality of printing.

Please note that this text will always vary, so do not consider the specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake.

  • 8. The Serial Numbers

On the authentic Yeezy V2 Butter, the serial number found on the size tag is slightly thinner compared to the bolder characters of the fake size tag.

Also, take note of the negative space in the middle of the # character and notice the difference in space in the authentic one where the # is not weirdly spaced out from the other numbers.

  • 9. The Appearance of MALE/MÂLE

On the fake size tag, the MALE/MÂLE text is wider and the letters are not properly spaced out.

For example, the M and  are clearly touching each other on the fake size tag, while on the authentic one, there’s a tiny gap between them — it may be hard to notice at a glance but it is still there nonetheless.

  • 10. The production date 

Here, pay attention to the slash that separates the two figures. The slash is significantly bolder on the fake Yeezy V2 Butter compared to the thinner slash on the authentic pair.

Also, production dates typically vary between different pairs of sneakers, so don’t worry if your pair doesn’t seem to have a production date that corresponds with others.

Thus, we do not consider this area to be a reliable tell for how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Butter.

  • 11.The slash in the size numbers

Again, highlighting what we briefly said regarding the size numbers, the slash in the fractions of the fake size tag will always vary from the authentic pair. 

Remember, not every single one of these 11 inconsistencies may be spotted on the size tag of a single pair of fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Butter. Nonetheless, even if only one inconsistency is present on the whole size tag, that doesn’t make it any less of a fake.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Static Reflective and Non-Reflective fake vs real

As for the Static Yeezy Boost 350 V2, the same flaws apply from the fake Yeezy Static Non-Reflective to the Reflective Statics.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

First of all, were going to have a look at the usual reference real vs fake Yeezy image in order to easily see how to spot fake Yeezy shoes.

Yeezy Static Size Tag

Let’s analyse together the Yeezy real vs fake Static Reflective or Non-Reflective size tag.

  1. The first thing we need to point out here is the fuzzier font on the top of the fake size tag, particularly on the letters M and A.
  2. The fake is commonly poorly printed, noticeably on the bottoms of the letters D and E, which are often messy. 
  3. On the fake, there could be slightly more space between the US UK FR JPN CHN row and the line above and below. Also, the lines on the fake size tag can be thicker.
  4. The sizes are often misplaced and misaligned on the fake size tag. Manufacturers can use a range of fonts, which is easiest to spot on the ⅔ character. The fake size tag on this version has used two different fonts for the number “0” in the number “40” and “250”. Besides this flaw, the first three sizes are thicker than the rest of the sizes, on the fake pair.
  5. The Adidas font is slightly thicker on the fakes. Moving on to the ® character, while it can’t be fully legible on the authentic pair, it seems like the fake size tag’s ® character is slightly harder to read.
  6. The code has a thinner font on the fake version and once again is poorly made, making it fuzzier.
  7. The code is often thinner on the fake version when compared.
  8. The printing quality is better on the real size tag (this detail like a few others, are more noticeable in real life). 
  9. This is not a flaw, however, it’s definitely worth mentioning that whether the “MALE/MÂLE” text inscription is not a reliable tell for spotting a fake. We’ve seen both fake and authentic pairs either having or missing this inscription. We believe the other points in this list are better and more reliable ways of spotting the fake Yeezy Static pair.
  10. Lastly, this text is revealing the month and the year when the pair you’re looking at was produced (or at least was meant to if you’re unfortunately looking at a fake pair). These numbers may vary, so just like the MALE/MÂLE inscription, the numbers are not reliable ways of spotting the fakes. However, we can point out differences in print: the production date text is thicker on the authentic size tag when compared to its fake counterpart.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 True Form TRFRM fake vs real

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Yeezy TRFRM Size Tag
  • The “Made In China” Label Print

The “Made In China” text is on the first row of the size tag and it indicates where the sneakers were produced. The inconsistency to be found here is in the quality of printing. 

Owing to the lower quality of printing on the fakes you will spot some ink blotting in the text. This is especially noticeable in the letter D in “MADE” as well as in the bottom of the right leg of “N” in “CHINA”.

If your size tag looks anything different from what is presented in the authentic picture, then chances are, you have the fake V2 TRFRM.

  • The First Line

This is the line that separates the first row of text being the “Made In China” print from the second row of text featuring the country codes.

Now as illustrated in the picture, on the authentic size tag, this is just a straight black line.

On the fake size tag, you will notice a white line in the middle of the line. The white line should not be there and as such is a clear sign of a fake.

  • The “US UK FR JP CHN” Print Text

This is the country code indicator row. Again the poor quality of print gives away the fake sneakers.

On the fake size tag, this is evident in the U in the US which has varying line width as the left side of U is thinner than the right side of U. 

Also, the R in FR is inconsistent on the fake which since parts of the letter being bolder than others. This inconsistency can be attributed to ink pooling. 

While the text on the authentic pair is well-spaced out, on the fake V2 TRFRM, you will observe that there is uneven spacing between the text as well as between the two lines bounding the text.

  • The Size Number

On this line, we uncovered some differences in the text that can help you identify a real size tag from a fake one. 

On the fake label, pay attention to how the last two sizes (265 and 260) are significantly thinner than other characters on that row. The 8 under the UK is slightly slanted on the fake compared to the well-aligned characters on the authentic pair.

Also, the 2 in 42 under FR is a bit shorter than the 4. As common with most fake size tags with fractions, the structure of the 1/2 here is different.

Note how the 1/2 character is wider and better aligned with the rest of the text on the authentic size tag.

  • 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 tell for identifying a fake Yeezy V2 TRFRM.

Nonetheless, you might want to watch out for the size of the text. On the fake size tag, you can see that the text is slightly thinner than it appears on the original label.

  • The Adidas Text Print

The Adidas text is located at the bottom left-hand corner of the size tag. Here, you will observe that the “Adidas” on the replica of the V2 TRFRM is thinner, thus leading to different spacing. Whereas, the “Adidas” on the authentic size tag has well-defined letters.

In addition to that, the replica size tag has misaligned letters. This can be spotted in the first “d” which is higher than the rest of the letters.

The second “a” is improperly printed and the weird shape of the letter can be attributed to ink blotting due to the lower quality of printing equipment used by the fake resellers.

  • The Adidas ® Copyright Location

While this is not the case for this specific fake size tag, the ® character should never touch the “Adidas” text. So if you notice that the ® character on your size tag is touching the “s” in the Adidas, then it might be that you have the fake Yeezy V2 True Form.

  • The F Serial Number

First off, please note that this text will always vary, so do not take this specific inscription to be an indicator of a fake or real V2 True Form. 

However, what you should look out for should be inconsistencies in print quality. As highlighted by the dotted line, you will notice that the characters on the fake size tag are not properly aligned and they appear to be wavy.

  • The Serial Number

Again, please note that this code will vary as well so do not consider the number itself to be a tell of authenticity. Just like before, keep on looking for inconsistencies. 

For instance, on this row, you will notice that the 3 and 6 on the fake tag are placed higher than the rest of the letters. But on the original size tag, the text is all well-shaped and properly aligned with one another.

  • The ART Number

Here, the inconsistency to look out for is in the appearance of the ART. Look at the different ways “ART” is printed on both the fake and original V2 TRFRM and pay attention to the differences in print quality in both size tag.

  • The Blank Space

If you are familiar with the size tags of the sneakers in the Yeezy-Adidas collection, then you would know that this space is supposed to feature the MALE/MÂLE inscription.

However, as you can see, both size tags are missing the inscription in this case which is perfectly fine. Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy True Form

  • The Manufacturer Date Print

This refers to the month and year of manufacture of the sneakers. Please note that the production date text varies so you should not take it to be a reliable tell when authenticating the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 TRFRM.

Rather, pay attention to how the text is significantly thinner on the fake pair. The print quality is overall bad as a consequence of the lower quality factory equipment used by replica producers.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Hyperspace fake vs real

As for the unique 350 V2 Hyperspace Yeezys, the ones with the green-ish boost sole, we are going to check the size tag too.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

fake vs real yeezy hyperspace

1 – The whole fake “MADE IN CHINA” text is too thick on the fake Yeezys, but it is the most visible on the letter “M”

2 – The lines below and above the “US UK FR JP CHN” text are too thick and fuzzy on the fake Yeezys

3 – The “APE” text (the factory from where the Hyperspaces come from) is too thick on the fake pair, and the letters “A” and “P” don’t make contact on the legit Yeezys, and on the fake sneakers, these two are connected

4 – The “adidas” text and the “R” elements make contact on the fake size tag, and the legit size tag has these two separated and they don’t make contact. This is a major flaw on the fake Yeezys

5 – The “ART EG7491” text is way too thick on the fake Yeezys, and on the legit ones, it is thinner

6 – The “19” indicates the production year (2019), and the flaw on the fake Hyperspaces it that the number “9” has a weird shape and it is significantly thicker

7 – The “N” in the word “CHN” is too thick, and besides, it has a weirdly arched and angled leg instead of being sharp and straight, as on the legit Yeezy Hyperspace size tag

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Clay fake vs real

Moving on, we have the Yeezy real vs fake Clay – the 350 V2’s that are fully orange.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Yeezy Clay Size Tag
  • The “Made In China” Label Print

The “Made In China” on the top row of the size tag indicates that the sneakers were produced in China.

On the fake size tag, you will notice that the text is significantly bolder and as a consequence of the thicker characters, some corners are rounded compared to the well defined and sharply printed edges on the authentic size tag. This is particularly noticeable in letters I and M.

Beyond the shape of the letters, you will also notice some inconsistencies in the text.

For instance, the leftmost leg of M and bottom right corner of D, you will notice some signs of ink pooling owing to the poor quality of printing associated with replicas.

  • The “US UK FR JP CHN” Print Text

The second row is the country indicator row where the US UK FR JP CHN text print is featured.

On the authentic size tag, you will notice that there’s more space between the US UK FR JP CHN row and the two lines bounding the text, above and below.

On the fake size tag, however, the text is almost touching both lines owing to the thicker and more substantial letters on the row.

  • The Size Number Print

The third row featuring the size number prints has some noticeable differences that can help you identify a fake from the real sneakers. 

On the fake sneakers, you will notice that the structure of the ½ differs from one of the real labels. Also, as a result of the poor quality of printing, the text is significantly thicker on the fake size tag and you will also see more fuzzy lines on the letters than usual.

  • The APE/CLU/EVN Number Print

Please note that having either CLU, APE or EVN inscriptions here is fine. All these inscriptions can be found both on the replicas and the authentic tags, therefore we don’t consider this a reliable indicator when differentiating the real Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Clay from the fake one.

  • The Dot on the Adidas Logo

At the bottom left-hand corner of the size, the tag is the Adidas Logo. While the difference here may not be noticeable at first glance, it is there.

On the authentic size tag, you will notice that there is just one dot inscription above the logo.

Wherea, on the fake size tag, you will see blots of dark ink all around this area, an indication of the poor quality printing from the fake manufacturers.

  • The Adidas Text Print

Now, proceed to inspect the Adidas text itself. When comparing the two text, pay attention to the dot on the letter “i”. You will notice that the dot on the I is longer on the fakes than it is on the authentic Yeezy V2 Clay size tag.

The longer dot is as a result of ink blotting owing to the poorer quality of printing usually found on replicas.

  • The Adidas ® Copyright Location 

Besides the Adidas text is the ® character. If you have the fake sneakers, you will notice the ® touching the “s” on the “Adidas” as opposed to the spaced-out ® character which doesn’t touch the “Adidas” text below it on the authentic label. 

  • The F Serial Number 

As pointed out in the image, this is the text on the last row of the size tag. Here, owing to the poor quality of printing, you will notice ink pooling at the bottom of the letters on the fake size tag.

This ink pooling is especially obvious in the letter B and the letter J.

Whereas in the authentic size tag, the letters are finely printed with no signs of ink pooling.

Please note that this text will always vary, so do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake.

  • The ART Number 

On the fake size tag, this text is significantly bolder and more substantial than the thinner letters on the real Yeezy 350 Clay size tag.

The inconsistency in the printing, in this case, can easily be spotted by looking at the letter “E”

  • The Appearance of MALE/MÂLE

The next indicator to Inspect on the size tag is the MALE/MÂLE text. Here, you will notice that the extension of the slash found in the inscription above hits MALE/MÂLE in a different spot. 

Also, as with the rest of the text on the fake size tag, the inscription appears to be bolder on the fakes and you will also observe inconsistent line widths in the pillars of M.

  • The Manufacturer Date Print

This text here indicates the month and year of production for that particular sneakers.

It is important to note that the production date text varies so we do not consider this to be a reliable tell when authenticating the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Clay. 

However, if the text print for the date of manufacture on your sneakers is bolder than it appears to be on the original size tag, then there are increased chances that your sneakers were not manufactured by Adidas.

  • The A in the “Made In China” Text Print

For the last indicator of authenticity in the size tag, you will have to go back to the first row where the Made In China text is.

Here, pay attention to the variance in negative space in the letter “A”. On the fake size tag, space is smaller than the space on the real size tag as a consequence of the bolder letter in the text.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Glow GITD fake vs real

Coming up next, we have the Glow Yeezy real vs fake, known as GITD, which stands for Glow In The Dark. That’s because. itis the main feature of the bright green Yeezy Glow.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Yeezy Glow Size Tag

So what are the inconsistencies to look out for?

  • The “Made In China” Label Print

This is on the first row of the size tag on the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Glow. Here, watch out for the differences in print quality.

On the authentic size tag, the characters are printed with better precision compared to the poor quality of printing on the replicas.

For instance, look at the letters M and D in “MADE” which appear to not be as well defined as the sharp letters on the original size tag.

  • The First Line

On the black line that separates the first row from the second row, you will notice a small and thin white line on it on the fake size tag.

This can be attributed to the lower quality of equipment used in the printing because the black line is uninterrupted on the size tag of the authentic Yeezy V2 Glow.

  • The “US UK FR JP CHN” Print Text

This is the country code indicator row. Here, you will need to pay attention to the uneven spacing between the text and the two lines above and below it.

While this inconsistency may not be evident for the particular fake size tag used in the image illustration as it is topmost quality for a fake, it can still occur on other versions of replicas.

So if this text is not well spaced out as in the authentic size tag on your sneakers, then you are most definitely dealing with a fake Glow Yeezy V2.

  • The Size Number

Under the country code indicator are those respective size numbers printed out on the third row of the size tag.

We found some inconsistencies in the text on this specific size tag but note that the inconsistencies may vary on yours.

On this size tag, as you can see, the 8 characters are thicker than other characters on the row, an obvious tell of ink blotting from the poor quality of printing.

You will also notice the stains within the negative space, this can be seen in the 2 in “42” and 6 in “265”.

  • 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 tell for identifying a fake Yeezy V2 Glow.

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.

  • The Square Print

There is a square print just above the Adidas logo on the bottom left-hand corner of the size tag.

Now, while you can expect variations with the square print, as it will not always appear exactly like it is on the authentic size tag, if your size tag has a print that looks like what you see in the fake example, here then it is an instant callout for a replica Yeezy V2 GITD.

  • The Adidas Text Print 

Now bring your focus to the Adidas text under the square print. Although you might not notice a difference at first glance, on closer observation, you will see that there is a difference in printing precision. 

On the fake size tag, you will notice that the “s” is harder to read, while all the rounded lines in “a” or “d” have inconsistencies, an attribute of the poor quality of printing common to replicas.

  • The F Serial Number 

Here, it is important to note that these numbers are likely to vary and as such, you should not consider this specific inscription as an indicator authenticity when you need to identify a fake pair of the Yeezy V2 GITD. 

However, what you should pay attention to in the text here is the print quality. You will notice that the first three characters of the text on the fake tag – F1N is blotted, owing to the lower quality of equipment used by fake GITD Yeezy V2 manufacturers in the printing process.

  • The Serial Number

Like the F serial number, please note that this code will vary as well so do not consider the number itself to be a tell of authenticity. Rather, focus on the inconsistencies in the print quality.

In this case, pay attention to how the # character appears to be slightly blotted whereas the # on the real size tag is precise and well-shaped.

  • The ART Number

As always, keep an eye out for inconsistent text here. You will notice that the “3” is higher than the rest on the text on the fake tag.

Also, the “A” in “ART” on the fake tag has this jagged appearance which looks quite different from the “A” in the original Yeezy GITD size tag.

  • The Appearance of the MALE/MÂLE

Both the real and fake Yeezy Boost V2 Glow may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.

Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy GITD.

  • The Manufacturer Date Print

This refers to the month and year of production of the sneakers. Here, you will notice that the text is slightly bolder on the authentic pair than it appears to be on the replica Glow Yeezy.

Please note that the production date text is going to vary from sneaker to sneaker and as such, we do not consider this to be a reliable tell when authenticating the Yeezy Glow. 

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black Reflective And Non-Reflective fake vs real

Once again, all of the flaws from the Non-Reflective V2 Black Yeezys apply to the Reflective version too.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black – Size Tag Fake Vs Real
  • 1. The “Made In China” Label Print.

The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black is manufactured in China and is displayed at the top of the size tag.

However, between the real and the fake, there can be noticeable differences.

The ink bleeding of the “M” in the Made In China text print is a clear indication of this sneaker being fake.

It gives a messy, unauthentic appearance, while the genuine pair has a slightly larger font size with a stretched look and a thinner font text on the top of the print.

  • 2. The “US” Print Text

The country indicator that forms the header of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black size guide has differences on the fake tag when you compare it to the original label.

The “US” is thicker on the replica sneakers, with surrounding lines also being more substantial.

You can spot some blotting occurring at the top end of the “S”. The blotting or pooling of ink can indicate that low-quality printing has been used to create the size tag.

  • 3. The APE Number Print

The Kernel spacing of the font on labels is the perfect way to stop a fake Yeezy Black V2 350.

The kernel is the space between different letters. You can see that on the authentic tag, the APE needs to be spaced with no connection between letters.

While the space between letters is not identical for the Fake, you can see the bottom of the A and P touch, which seem to be a result of slight ink blotting.

  • 4. The Adidas Copyright ® Location

The most critical indicator to authenticate the Yeezy 350 Black is the position of the ® sign.

On the fake sneaker, the ® symbol is touching the Adidas logo on the size tag, which is the biggest give away that it’s fake.

While the original version has the ® sign spaced apart from the Adidas logo. A quick way of telling the difference between the real and the replica.

  • 5. The Size Number Print

Printing is not always perfect, and that’s a way of telling the difference between a replica and an authentic Yeezy.

You can see that on the 1/2 or 2/3 characters of the size tag. What you will notice is that the printing on the original Yeezy 350 V2 Black features an odd spacing while on the fake print the size lists perfectly spaced half sizes.

It’s a rare anomaly but it proves itself as a reliable way of spotting fake vs real Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black pairs.

  • 6. “CHN” Text Print

Inconsistent lines on the “N” from the “CHN” text shows 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.

  • 7. The Manufacturer Date Print

Differences between the real and the fake manufacturer date are very prominent.

The 05/19 displayed on both size tags have unique differences. With the real Yeezy 350 V2 Triple Black featuring a smooth font type while the fake size tag has a different bolded font for the “5” and the “9” on the fake version.

  • 8. The Appearance of MALE/MÂLE

MALE/MALE appearing on the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black is not a guaranteed spot of a fake, even though the imitation has this displayed and the original does not.

We don’t consider this a reliable way of telling a fake from a real, so don’t worry if your pair either has or doesn’t have this inscription.

  • 9. The font on the ART or FU

The font used in the printing of the ART and FU is more significant and thinner on the authentic sneaker. Comparing against the fake sneaker, you can see that the text is smaller and bolder on the fake than on the genuine.

  • 10. & 11. Serial Numbers

The two serial numbers presented in the image above are thinner and larger on the authentic sneaker.

These serial numbers are not displayed the same on the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black, where the text is bolder and has some ink blotting between the numbers indicate a fake.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Synth Reflective and Non-Reflective fake vs real

Since the Yeezy Synths come in both Reflective and Non-Reflective versions, we want to mention that all of the flaws apply from the Non-Reflective version to the Reflective one too.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

So as to know how to spot fake Yeezy shoes, we are first going to check out the real vs fake Yeezy image blow.

legit check yeezy synth

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” text

There are fuzzy lines on the counterfeit Yeezy V2 Synth, as the font is taller and slightly thinner on authentic, while on the replica, it is exactly the opposite.

2 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

As you can see in the Yeezy real vs fake Synth images above, the font is thicker on fake sneakers, and the surrounding lines are also a lot thicker on the fake shoes.

3 – The “APE” text

In the “APE” text, the letters “A” and “P” are touching on the fake Synth Yeezys, as a consequence of a thicker font, and on the legit shoes, these don’t touch.

As a fact, “APE” is the name of the factory where the authentic Yeezys have been manufactured.

4 – The Copyright “®” character

A very important spot to check, the “®” is touching “adidas” text. This is an instant callout for a fake pair of Yeezys. Besides, there is also a different spacing between the “adidas®” and the square above from the Yeezy real vs fake Synth pairs.

5 – Size text

As you can see in the image above, the “” character has weird spacing (ironically) on the authentic sneakers, and on the replica Yeezys, there is no space between the characters

6 – The “CHN” text

Even though we said about this row of text above, there had to be said in particular about the “CHN” text. In fact, the counterfeit Yeezys have their “CHN” text looking a lot thinner because of the fuzzier lines than the ones on the legit sneakers.

7 – The production date number

The number before the slash represents the month in which the sneakers have been manufactured, and the numbers on the right side of the slash stand for the year of production.

In this case, we’ve got “05/19” for both the real and the fake Yeezy V2 Synth pairs

Most of the time, the replica Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Synth pairs will have a lot more space between the slash and the numbers.

8 – The “MALE/MALE” text

If the “MALE/MALE” text is missing on your sneakers’ size tag, there’s nothing to worry about. We won’t base our guide on whether this line appears or not

9 – The “ART” text

As you can see, the font seems used on the fake Yeezy V2 Synth pair, since the “ART” or “FU” printings are taller on the authentic sneakers.

10 – The bottom second last line of text

Again, the thinner font on the authentic Yeezys is visible, while on the fake pair, the text looks a lot bolder and thicker. There are a lot of inconsistencies on the fake Yeezys (fuzzy lines)

11 – The last row of text on the size tag

The letters are bolder and misaligned on the fake Yeezy Synth sneakers, while on the legit pair, it’s exactly the opposite.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia Reflective and Non-Reflective fake vs real

Going to another pair of yellow Yeezys, we are going to check the Yeezy real vs fake Antlias. All of the flaws from the Non-Reflective Antlias apply to the Reflective version as well.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

fake vs real yeezy antlia

  1. The fake letter “M” in the “MADE IN CHINA” word is too thick. Not only it, but the whole fake text, but this is the most visible on the letter “M”

2. The font is too thick and too bold on the fake Yeezys, and the surrounding lines are thicker on fake

3. The letters “A” and “P” are touching on the fake size tag, as a consequence of a thicker font, and on the legit pair, it is exactly the opposite

4. Very importantly, the “®” is most of the time touching adidas – instant callout for a fake. besides, different spacing between the adidas® and the square above. In our case, you can notice how the fake “adidas” text and the “®” elements are too thick

5.  The character has is too thin on the fake pair, and on the legit pair, it is thicker

6. The same problem is for the “5” and the “9”: the fake Yeezys have these numbers looking too thick and without the correct shape

7. If “MALE/MALE” is missing, there’s nothing to worry about. we won’t base our guide on whether this line appears or not

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Lundmark Non-Reflective and Reflective

Moving on to the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Lundmark, the same flaws from the Non-Reflective Lundmarks apply to the Reflective Yeezys too.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

legit check yeezys

1. There are fuzzy lines on the fake Yeezys, and the font is taller and slightly thinner on authentic

2. The font of the text is thicker on the fake Yeezys, and also, the surrounding lines are thicker on fake sneakers

3. The letter “A” and “P” are touching on the fake Lundmarkes, as a consequence of a thicker font

4. Very importantly, the “®” is touching “adidas” text – instant callout for a fake pair. Besides, there is different spacing between the adidas® and the square above

5.  The character has weird spacing (ironically) on the authentic pair and the fake pair doesn’t

6. There are inconsistent lines on the letter “N” in the CHN text

7. The replica manufacturers used a different text font for the “5” and for “9” numbers

8. If the “MALE/MALE” text is missing, there’s nothing to worry about. We won’t base our guide on whether this line appears or not

9. A different font is used since the ART or FU texts are taller on the authentic Yeezys

10. Again, the thinner font on the authentic. Inconsistencies on the fake Yeezys (fuzzy lines)

11. The letters are bolder and misaligned on the fake Lundmarks

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cloud White Reflective and Non-Reflective fake vs real

Now we are going to inspect white pair with a little bit of blue, the Yeezy real vs fake Cloud White 350 V2’s. All of the flaws on the fake 350 V2 Non-Reflective Cloud Whites apply to the Reflective Yeeyzs too.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

fake vs real cloud yeezy

1 – The fake “MADE IN CHINA” text is too thin on the fake size tag, and on the legit size tag, it is thicker

2 – The “R” is placed too far away from the “adidas” text on the fake Yeezys, and on the legit Yeezys, it is placed closer

Please keep in mind that if the “R” makes contact with the “adidas” text, then you are looking at a fake pair.

3 – The last line of text on the bottom right corner of the size tag is too thick on the fake Yeezys, and on the legit Yeezys, it is thinner

4 – Watch out for any deformed and out of shape text. Most of the time, fake shoes will have deformed text. This is the most visible on the “265” text in our case

Now that you know how to authenticate the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cloud White by looking at the size tag too, let’s proceed to the next step of the Cloud Yeezy real vs fake comparison.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Citrin Non-Reflective and Reflective fake vs real

Next up, we have the Yeezy real vs fake Citrin in both the Non-Reflective and the Reflective versions. All of the tells from the NRF version apply to the RF Yeezy Citrins too.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

fake vs real yeezy citrin

1 – The fake “MADE IN CHINA” text is slightly thicker on the fake pair. The legit Citrins have this text thinner

2 – The “1/2” print is first of all thicker on the fake pair, and second of all, the number “1” is too small and it is placed a little bit too far away from the slash (“/”)

3 – In the word “APE” (fun fact – it is the name of the factory), the letters “P” and “E” are connected, and on the legit V2 Citrin sneakers, these letters don’t make contact

4 – The hashtag (“#”) character is obviously thicker on the fake Yeezys, and on the other hand, the legit Yeezys have this element thinner

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Yeezreel Non-Reflective and Reflective

Now, we will inspect the Yeezreel 350 V2 Yeezy real vs fake in both the Non-Reflective and the Reflective versions, which have the same applying of the tells.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Yeezy Glow Size Tag

Before you proceed, remember that each colourway has different inconsistencies and misprints and as such, what we consider to be a discrepancy on the V2 Yeezreel may not be a discrepancy on other colourways.

So what are the inconsistencies to look out for?

  • The “Made In China” Label Print

This is on the first row of the size tag on the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Yeezreel. Here, watch out for the differences in print quality.

On the authentic size tag, the characters are printed with better precision compared to the poor quality of printing on the replicas.

For instance, look at the letters M and D in “MADE” which appear to not be as well defined as the sharp letters on the original size tag.

  • The First Line

On the black line that separates the first row from the second row, you will notice a small and thin white line on it on the fake size tag.

This can be attributed to the lower quality of equipment used in the printing because the black line is uninterrupted on the size tag of the authentic Yeezy V2 Yeezreel.

  • The “US UK FR JP CHN” Print Text

This is the country code indicator row. Here, you will need to pay attention to the uneven spacing between the text and the two lines above and below it.

While this inconsistency may not be evident for the particular fake size tag used in the image illustration as it is topmost quality for a fake, it can still occur on other versions of replicas.

So if this text is not well spaced out as in the authentic size tag on your sneakers, then you are most definitely dealing with a fake Yeezreel pair.

  • The Size Number

Under the country code indicator are those respective size numbers printed out on the third row of the size tag.

We found some inconsistencies in the text on this specific size tag but note that the inconsistencies may vary on yours.

On this size tag, as you can see, the 8 characters are thicker than other characters on the row, an obvious tell of ink blotting from the poor quality of printing.

You will also notice the stains within the negative space, this can be seen in the 2 in “42” and 6 in “265”.

  • 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 V2 Yeezreel.

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.

  • The Square Print

There is a square print just above the Adidas logo on the bottom left-hand corner of the size tag.

Now, while you can expect variations with the square print, as it will not always appear exactly like it is on the authentic size tag, if your size tag has a print that looks like what you see in the fake example, here then it is an instant callout for a replica Yeezy V2 Yeezreel.

  • The Adidas Text Print 

Now bring your focus to the Adidas text under the square print. Although you might not notice a difference at first glance, on closer observation, you will see that there is a difference in printing precision. 

On the fake size tag, you will notice that the “s” is harder to read, while all the rounded lines in “a” or “d” have inconsistencies, an attribute of the poor quality of printing common to replicas.

  • The F Serial Number 

Here, it is important to note that these numbers are likely to vary and as such, you should not consider this specific inscription as an indicator authenticity when you need to identify a fake pair of the Yeezy Yeezreel. 

However, what you should pay attention to in the text here is the print quality. You will notice that the first three characters of the text on the fake tag – F1N is blotted, owing to the lower quality of equipment used by fake Yeezreel Yeezy V2 manufacturers in the printing process.

  • The Serial Number

Like the F serial number, please note that this code will vary as well so do not consider the number itself to be a tell of authenticity. Rather, focus on the inconsistencies in the print quality.

In this case, pay attention to how the # character appears to be slightly blotted whereas the # on the real size tag is precise and well-shaped.

  • The ART Number

As always, keep an eye out for inconsistent text here. You will notice that the “3” is higher than the rest on the text on the fake tag.

Also, the “A” in “ART” on the fake tag has this jagged appearance which looks quite different from the “A” in the original Yeezy Yeezreel size tag.

  • The Appearance of the MALE/MÂLE

Both the real and fake Yeezy Boost V2 Yeezreel may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.

Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy Yeezreel.

  • The Manufacturer Date Print

This refers to the month and year of production of the sneakers. Here, you will notice that the text is slightly bolder on the authentic pair than it appears to be on the replica Yeezreels.

Please note that the production date text is going to vary from sneaker to sneaker and as such, we do not consider this to be a reliable tell when authenticating the Yeezy. 

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Yecheil Non-Reflective and Reflective fake vs real

Moving forward, we have the Yecheil Yeezy real vs fake. All of the flaws from the fake Yeezy Yecheil Non-Reflective apply to the Yecheil Reflectives as well.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

real vs fake Yeezy Yecheil

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” text

Most of the time, the counterfeit Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Yecheil pairs’ size tags will have a problem with this text.

That is because the replica Yeezy manufacturers made some of the letters look either too thick or too thin.

In this case, you can easily notice how the letter “C” in the “CHINA” text is a lot thicker than the one met on the legit Yeezy Yecheil size tag.

2 – The line painting flaws

This is a common spot on the fake Yeezys. If you take a closer look at the replica Yeezy Yecheil size tag, you’ll see how it has a scratch on the paint on the lines above the sizes.

On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy Yechel’s size tag doesn’t have this scratch on the paint

3 – 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.

4 – The date print

Differences between the real and the fake manufacturer date are very prominent.

The 11/19 displayed on both size tags have unique differences. With the real Yeezy 350 V2 Yecheil featuring a smooth font type while the fake size tag has a different bolded font for the “11” and the “19” on the fake version.

5 – The “MALE/MÂLE” print

MALE/MALE appearing on the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Yecheil is not a guaranteed spot of a fake, even though the imitation has this displayed and the original does not.

We don’t consider this a reliable way of telling a fake from a real, so don’t worry if your pair either has or doesn’t have this inscription.

6 – The Adidas Copyright ® Location

The most critical indicator to authenticate the Yeezy 350 Yecheil is the position of the ® sign.

On the fake sneaker, the ® symbol is touching the Adidas logo on the size tag, which is the biggest give away that it’s fake.

While the original version has the ® sign spaced apart from the Adidas logo. A quick way of telling the difference between the real and the replica.

Now that you know how to spot the replica Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Yecheil by looking at the size tag too, let’s move on to the next step of the comparison.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Tail Light fake vs real

Looking at the European Yeezy Boost 350 V2, we have the Yeezy real vs fake Tail Lights.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

fake vs real yeezy tail light

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” text

Most of the time, the counterfeit Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Tail Light pairs’ size tags will have a problem with this text.

That is because the replica Yeezy manufacturers made some of the letters look either too thick or too thin.

In this case, you can easily notice how the letter “A” in the “CHINA” text is a lot thicker than the one met on the legit Yeezy Tail Light’s size tag.

2 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” print

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.

3 – The production date number

The production date number is on the middle right side of the size tag on both the real vs fake Yezzy Tail Lights, and it is always written in the MM/YY way.

The counterfeit Yeezy Tail Lights have the “2” in the “20” text (which stands for 2020) looking thicker than the “2” on the legit Tail Light’s size tag.

Not only that, but the “2” on the fake Yeezys is placed crookedly compared to the “2” on the retail Yeezy Tail Lights.

4 – The Adidas Copyright ® Location

The most critical indicator to authenticate the Yeezy 350 Tail Light is the position of the ® sign.

On the fake sneaker, the ® symbol is touching the Adidas logo on the size tag, which is the biggest give away that it’s fake.

While the original version has the ® sign spaced apart from the Adidas logo. A quick way of telling the difference between the real and the replica.

Now that you know how to spot the replica Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Tail Light by looking at the size tag too, let’s move on to the next step of the comparison.

5 – The factory production text (“EVH”)

This is basically the text under the size’s print, on the middle left side of the real vs fake Yeezy Tail Light’s size tag.

Most of the time, on the replica Yeezy Tail Light sneakers, the “EVH” text is thicker than the text on the authentic Yeezy Tail Light’s text, and this is visible in the fake vs real Yeezy Tail Light image above.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Earth fake vs real

Now we have the American exclusive release of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2, which is the Earth colourway.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

real vs fake yeezy earth

Now that you had a look at the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Earth image above, let’s proceed to the flaws on the fake Yeezys.

  • The “MADE IN CHINA” label print

This is on the first row of the size tag on the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Earth. Here, watch out for the differences in print quality.

On the authentic size tag, the characters are printed with better precision compared to the poor quality of printing on the replicas.

For instance, look at the letters M and D in “MADE” which appear to not be as well defined as the sharp letters on the original size tag.

Besides, the counterfeit Yeezy Earth’s letter “M” in the “MADE IN CHINA” text is thicker than the letter on the legit label.

  • The “APE” factory of manufacturing text

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 V2 Earth.

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.

  • The Adidas Trademark symbol

This is the last line of text on the left side of the real vs fake Yeezy V2 Earth’s size tag.

The problem with the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Earth is that the fake trademark (®) symbol is most of the time placed too close to the “adidas” text.

On the authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Earth, there is always a distance between the “adidas” text and the ® symbol.

  • The date of manufacturing print

This is basically the date that your Yeezy Earth sneakers have been produced.

The problem with the counterfeit Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Earth sneakers is that they most of the time have too much space between the numbers and the slash, either they are too thick or too thin, and sometimes, they even have different shapes than the elements on the legit Yeezy Earths.

  • The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

This line of text represents different ways of saying the size in which your Yeezy Earth sneakers are.

Most of the time, the letters are too thick on the fake Yeezy 350 V2 Earth sneakers, and in this case, you can see in the fake vs real Yeezy Earth image above how the letter “N” in the “CHN” is too thick on the fake Yeezy Earths.

  • The ART number

The letter “A” in “the ART” text on the fake Yeezy Earth’s size tag has this jagged appearance which looks quite different from the “A” in the original Yeezy Earth’s size tag.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Flax fake vs real

Looking at another Yeezy Boost 350 V2, we have the Flax special Asian release.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

legit check yeezy flax

1 – The placement of the ‘MADE IN CHINA” text

In the fake vs real Yeezy Flax image above, we have pointed out how the fake sneakers have their “MADE IN CHINA” text placed too low, meaning that it is placed too close to the line below.

On the other hand, the authentic sneakers have their “MADE IN CHIANA” printing placed higher than the fake shoes’.

2 – The size number print

Looking at the “255” text, which is the last size number print on the size tag (right below CHN), you can see how the characters on the fake Yeezy Flax sneakers are too thick, too big, and they use a different font than the one used on the retail sneakers.

3 – The date of manufacturing

Now, we will look at the date of manufacturing, which is “01/20”, which stands for January 2020.

If you look at the “20” text on the fake Yeezy Flax, you can see how it is too thick and placed too far away from the slash (“/”) next to it, while the authentic Yeezys have their text thinner and placed a further away from the slash.

4 – The hashtag number of the Yeezys

This is basically the second last line of text on the size tag. On the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Flax, you can notice how the numbers are obviously too big and too thick.

5 – The distance between the “adidas” and the “®” symbol

This is one of the most reliable signs of authenticity on the size tag, due to the placement of the “®” registered trademark symbol.

On the replica sneakers, you can notice how the ® is placed too close to the “adidas” text, and sometimes, the fake sneakers even have these two elements in touch, which the authentic sneakers will never have them this way.

6 – The half-size “1/2” text

Looking ad the half-size number on the replica Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Flax sneakers, you can notice how the elements are thicker than the ones on the authentic sneakers, and not only that but even how the fake Yeezys have their “1/2” text too big.

7 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

This line of text represents different ways of saying the size in which your Yeezy Flax sneakers are.

Most of the time, the letters are too thick on the fake Yeezy 350 V2 Flax sneakers, and in this case, you can see in the fake vs real Yeezy Flax image above how the letter “U” in the “US” is too thin on the fake Yeezy Flax.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Desert Sage fake vs real

Now, we will look at the Yeezy real vs fake 350 V2 Desert Sage.

yeezy desert sage fake vs real

1 – The placement of the “MADE IN CHINA” text

In the fake vs real Yeezy Desert Sage image above, we have pointed out how the fake sneakers have their “MADE IN CHINA” text placed too low, meaning that it is placed too close to the line below.

On the other hand, the authentic sneakers have their “MADE IN CHIANA” printing placed higher than the fake shoes’.

2 – The date of manufacturing

Now, we will look at the date of manufacturing, which is “01/20”, which stands for December 2019.

If you look at the “19” text on the fake Yeezy Desert Sage, you can see how it is too thick and placed too far away from the slash (“/”) next to it, while the authentic Yeezys have their text thinner and placed a further away from the slash.

3 – The Appearance of the MALE/MÂLE

Both the real and fake Yeezy Boost V2 Desert Sage may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.

Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy Desert Sage.

4 – The last line of text

Looking at the last line of text on the Yeezy real vs fake Desert Sage, you can easily notice how the fake sneakers have the same usual font-weight flaw.

In fact, the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Desert Sage’s size tag has the last line of text looking too thin compared to the text on the legit Desert Sage Yeezys.

5 – The “adidas” text

If you look at the fake sneakers in the Yeezy real vs fake Desert Sage image above, you will notice how the fake Yeeys have their letter “s” looking too thick compared to the letter on the legit sneakers.

Since we are here, keep in mind that the (R) registered trademark symbol must have some distance between it and the “adidas” text.

We are saying this because the replica Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Desert Sage sneakers are common to have their registered trademark symbol placed too close to the “adidas” text.

6 – The factory of producing text

In this case, for both the fake vs real Desert Sage Yeezys, there is the “EVN” print, which stands for the EVN factory where the legit Yeezys have been produced.

On the fake Yeezys, you can notice how the “EVN” text is too thin, while the legit Yeezy Desert Sage sneakers have their text looking thicker.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cinder Non-Reflective and Reflective fake vs real

A similar colourway to the Black 350 V2’s, we have the Cinders. All of the flaws from the fake 350 V2 Non-Reflective Cinder apply to the Reflective 350 V2 Cinders as well.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

fake vs real yeezy cinder

1 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

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

Besides, you can also notice how the fake Yeezy Cinders have their “H” in the “CHN” text looking bigger than the rest of the letters.

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

2 – The size number text

On this line, we uncovered some differences in the text that can help you identify a real size tag from a fake one. 

On the fake label, pay attention to how the last two sizes (265 and 260) are significantly thinner than other characters on that row. The 8 under the UK is slightly slanted on the fake compared to the well-aligned characters on the authentic pair.

3 – The Manufacturer Date Print

This refers to the month and year of manufacture of the sneakers. Please note that the production date text varies so you should not take it to be a reliable tell when authenticating the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Citrin.

Rather, pay attention to how the text is significantly thicker and placed too far away from the slash (“/”) on the fake pair. The print quality is overall bad as a consequence of the lower quality factory equipment used by replica producers.

4 – The Adidas ® Copyright Location

While this is not the case for this specific fake size tag, the ® character should never touch the “Adidas” text.

So if you notice that the ® character on your size tag is touching the “s” in the Adidas, then it might be that you have the fake Yeezy V2 Cinders.

5 – The Appearance of the MALE/MÂLE

Both the real and fake Yeezy Boost V2 Cinder may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.

Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy Cinder.

6 – The half-size text (½)

The “½” character is also too thin on the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cinder’s size tag, and besides, the “1” is placed too far away from the slash (“/”).

With all of this being said for the Yeezy real vs fake Boost 350 V2 colourways, let’s move on to the Yeezy Boost 380.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Linen fake vs real

Going to another yellow Yeezy, this time we have the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Linen.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

yeezy linen legit check guide

Now that you had a look at the fake vs real Yeezy 350 V2 Linen image above, we are going to explain every flaw, counted, met on the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Linen shoes.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” label

Looking at the top of the size tag, you can see the “MADE IN CHINA” text. First of all, the replica Yeezy Linens have their letter “M” looking too thick, and second of all, the same letter is placed a little bit higher than the rest of the letters, making it look like it is floating.

On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Linens have all of their letters at the same font-weight and placement.

2 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” printing

Looking at the second main row of text at the top of the fake vs real Yeezy Linen sneakers, you can see how the fake shoes have their “US” text looking thicker than the rest of the letters.

Not only that but all of the text on the fake Yeezy 350 V2 Linens is also too thick compared to the text on the authentic Yeezy Linens.

3 – The “adidas ®” text at the bottom

This is one of the most blatant flaws met on the counterfeit Yeezys. Most of the time, the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Linens have their “adidas” text and the registered trademark “®” symbol placed too close to each other, as to make contact.

The authentic Yeezy Linens will never have their “®” character placed as close to the “adidas” text as shown in the fake vs real Yeezy Linen image above.

4 – The last two rows of text

Looking at the last two rows of text on the counterfeit Yeezy Boost 350 Linen’s, you can see how the last two rows of text are too thin compared to the text met on the authentic Yeezy Linen’s size tag.

5 – The Appearance of the MALE/MÂLE5 –

Both the real and fake Yeezy Boost V2 Linen may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.

Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy Linen.

6 – The date of manufacturing text

This refers to the “01/20” text, which you can see in the middle right side of the real vs fake Yeezy Linen’s size tag.

Looking at the replica Yeezy Linens, you can notice how the text is really thin while looking at the authentic Yeezys, the text is thicker.

Besides, you can also notice how the fake Linen Yeezys have their “01” and “20” numbers are placed too far away from the slash between these.

7 – The size number text

Lastly, looking at the last size number text, it is visible how the fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Linen sneakers have their text looking too thin.

On the other hand, the authentic Yeezys have their text looking thicker.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Sulfur fake vs real

Moving ahead in time, we now have to look at the real vs fake Yeezy Sulfur sneakers.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

yeezy sulfur fake vs real

Now that you’ve had a look at the reference fake vs real Yeezy Sulfur image above, let’s proceed to explain the flaws on the fake Sulfurs.

1 – The “MADE IN INDIA” text

Looking at the top of the size tag on your Yeezys, you will find the main “MADE IN INDIA” text.

Then, looking at the fake Sulfur Yeezys, you can see how they have their text looking too big and too thin, while the legit Yeezys have their text looking smaller and thicker.

Besides, the fake Yeezys also have their “MADE IN INDIA” text improperly kerned, as the amount of space between each letter is different, while on the legit shoes, the amount of space between the letters is constant.

Both the spacing and the font-weight problems can be most of the time easily spotted if you look at the letters “D”, I” and “A” in the “INDIA” text.

2 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

Moving one line lower, we have the “US UK FR JP CHN” text, where on the fake shoes, you can see how it is too thin as well.

On the other hand, looking at the authentic Yeezy Sulfurs, you can see how they have their line of text looking thicker than the fake shoes’ text.

3 – The date of manufacturing print

As for the third factor which differentiates between the fake vs real Yeezy Sulfur pairs, we have the date of manufacturing of the shoes, which in this case, it is “02/20” for both the fake vs real Sulfur Yeezys.

In the fake vs real Yeezy Sulfur image above, we have pointed out how the fake Yeezys have their “02/20” printing looking too thick, while the printing on the legit Yeezys is thinner.

4 – The appearance of the MALE/MÂLE text

Both the real and fake Yeezy Boost V2 Sulfur may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.

Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy Sulfur.

5 – The “adidas ®” text

Looking at the fake Yeezy Sulfurs, you can see how they have their “adidas ®” text looking too thin, while on the legit shoes, the same inscriptios are thicker.

Also, keep an eye out for this inscription, as the fake Yeeyzs sometimes have their “adidas” and the “®” symbol in contact – this is something that you’ll never see on the authentic Yeezys.

6 – The APC number print

So as to mention, “APC” stands for the factory where the sneakers were manufactured.

In the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Sulfur image above, we have pointed out how the fake Sulfurs have their “APC 011001” number looking too thin, while the one on the legit shoes is thicker.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zyon fake vs real

Moving ahead in time, we now have to look at the real vs fake Yeezy Zyon sneakers.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

yeezy boost zyon real vs fake

Now that you’ve had a look at the fake vs real Yeezy Zyon image above, let’s move on to the flaws on the fake Yeezys.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” printing

Beginning with the print at the top of the size tag on the real vs fake Yeezy Zyons, you can see how the fake shoes have their letters looking too thick.

On the other hand, the legit Yeezy Zyons have their “MADE IN CHINA” text looking thinner than what it looks like on the fake shoes.

2 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

Moving on to the second line of text on the fake vs real Yeezy Zyons, we have pointed out in the real vs fake Yeezy Zyon image above how the fake shoes also have this line of text looking too thick.

Once again, the authentic Yeezy Zyons have their text looking thinner than how it appears to be on the fake pair.

3 – The size number print

The third hand-emoji pointer in the real vs fake Yeezy Zyon image above shows you how the fake Yeezys have their last number print which indicates the size of the Zyons looking too thick as well.

Not only that, but the fake shoes also have their number improperly positioned, as the “7” is placed too close to the “2”, and placed too far away from the “0”.

The authentic Zyon Yeezys have all of their numbers at the same font-weight and with the same amount of kerning between each letter.

4 – The date of manufacturing

Up next, looking at the “02/20” text, which stands for the date of when the Yeezys were crafted, you can see how the fake shoes also have this print looking too thick, and how its numbers are placed too close to each other, especially in the “20” text.

The kerning problem is also visible at the slash (“/”) on the fake shoes, where you can see how they have their numbers placed too close to the slash.

On the other hand, the legit shoes have their numbers and the slash looking thinner, and not only that, but they also have the same amount of space between the characters.

5 – The hashtag (#) number

Looking at the hashtag ID number, you can see how the fake shoes have, once again, this printing looking too thick, including the hashtag character, while the legit shoes have this printing looking thinner.

6 – The “adidas ®” text

In the real vs fake Yeezy Zyon image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their “adidas ®” text looking too thick, which is actually as thick as the letter “R” in the registered trademark (®) symbol is not visible at all.

The authentic Zyon Yeezys have their “adidas ®” text looking thinner than what it appears to be like on the fake shoes.

7 – The “ART” number

Looking at the “ART FZ1267” number on the real vs fake Yeezy Zyon pairs, it is visible in the image above how the fake shoes have this row of text looking too thick as well, while the legit shoes have this line thinner.

8 – The factory of manufacturing text

In this case, the factory which manufactured the shoes is labeled as “EVH”, while the fake shoes pretend to be made at the “EVN” factory – these are two of the legit Adidas factories.

With this being said, you can see in the fake vs real Yeezy Zyon image above how the fake shoes have their printing looking too thick, while the legit shoes have their text and numbers thinner.

How to spot fake Yeezy Boost 380 (fake vs real)

Released in December 2019, we have to inspect the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 380 Alien sneakers now, and then, the Yeezy 380 Mist.

Yeezy Boost 380 Alien fake vs real

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

yeezy 380 alien size tag

It is important to understand that the size tags of each colorway in the Yeezy Boost 380 Alien line have its misprints and as such, what constitutes an inconsistency on the size tags differ from colorway to colorway.

  • The “MADE IN CHINA CHINA” Label Print

On the first row of the label is the Made In China print which indicates the country where the sneakers were manufactured.

Here, you will notice that on the fake size tag, the text is not as sharply printed compared to the well-defined characters on the authentic size tag.

Also, you will notice that the spacing between the characters on the fake pair is not even whereas, the letters on the original label are evenly spaced out.

  • The Adidas Copyright ®

On the authentic size tag, you will notice that the ® character is well spaced out from the Adidas text.

However, this is not the case for the fake size tag where the ® character is sitting on top of the “s” in “Adidas”. This is as a result of ink pooling, a sign of poor print quality on fakes.

  • The Serial Number

This refers to the serial number on the last row of the size tag. Pay attention to how the numbers are smaller than the letters on both authentic and fake tags.

The main problem with this row is the number “5” is a lot thinner and it looks boxier, while the authentic size tag has the number “5” bigger and wider.

  • The size number

Now to the sizes in terms of regions is that the letters are deformed. That is because the letters have placement problems. In fact, you can see how the “35” numbers have a lot more distance from the “2” next to them.

Yeezy Boost 380 Mist Reflective and Non-Reflective fake vs real

Up next, we have the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 380 in both the Reflective and the Non-Reflective versions.

Not only that but all of the text on the fake Yeezy 380 Mist is also too thick compared to the text on the authentic Yeezy Mist.

2 – The date of manufacturing

This print is present on the middle-right side of the size tag on both the real vs fake Yeezy 380 Mist.

On the fake Mists, you can notice how the text is too thick and improperly positioned because the 2 is lower than the 0 in the “20” text.

Besides, you can also notice how the fake Yeezy Boost 380 Mists have their 01 and the 20 printings placed too far away from the slash (“/”) in the middle, while the authentic sneakers have their text closer to the slash.

One thing to mention here is that the 1 in the “12”, which stands for December, is bigger than the 2 on the authentic shoes too, so don’t get scared if you see improper shaping there, on your size tag.

3 – The appearance of the MALE/MÂLE text

Both the real and fake Yeezy Boost 380 Mist may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.

Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy 380 Mist.

4 – The “adidas ®” text at the bottom

This is one of the most blatant flaws met on the counterfeit Yeezys. Most of the time, the fake Yeezy Boost 380 Mist has their “adidas” text and the registered trademark “®” symbol placed too close to each other, as to make contact.

The authentic Yeezy Mist will never have their “®” character placed as close to the “adidas” text as shown in the fake vs real Yeezy 380 Mist image above.

In the fake vs real Yeezy 380 Mist image above, you can also notice how the letter “s” in the “adidas” text is too thin compared to the letter on the legit Yeezys.

5 – The “APE” text

The “APE”, “EVN” and the rest of the printings on the middle-left side of the size tags stand for the factories in which the authentic Yeezys have been produced.

In the real vs fake Yeezy Mist image above, you can notice how the fake Yeezy Mists have their “APE” text looking too thin compared to the text on the retail Yeezy 380 Mists.

Yeezy Boost 380 Blue Oat Reflective and Non-Reflective fake vs real

Now that you’ve had a look at the reference fake vs real Yeezy Boost 380 Blue Oat image above, let’s proceed to explain the flaws on the fake Yeezys.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” text

Beginning with the print at the top of the size tag on the real vs fake Yeezy Blue Oats, you can see how the fake shoes have their letters looking too thick.

On the other hand, the legit Yeezy Blue Oats have their “MADE IN CHINA” text looking thinner than what it looks like on the fake shoes.

2 – The size number print

The size number is the row of text that indicates the size of the shoes in different measurements, according to different countries.

The main flaw on the replica 380 Blue Oats is that they have their size number print looking too thick, while the authentic Yeezys have their row of text looking thinner.

3 – The date of manufacturing the shoes

Going one line lower in the middle-right side of the size tag, we are going to have a look at the fake vs real Yeezy Blue Oat’s date number print.

Most of the time, the fake Blue Oats have their print with the month and the year of manufacturing of the shoes looking too thick as well.

And then, once again, the authentic shoes have their “04/20” manufacturing date looking thinner than the one found on the fake Yeezys’ size tag.

4 – The hashtag “#” print

Going lower on the size tag of the fake vs real 380 Blue Oat Yeezys’ size tags, we will have a look at the hashtag “#” print.

As you can see in the image with the real vs fake Yeezy Blue Oats above, the replica Yeezys have their hashtag once again looking too thick, but also too big when compared to the authentic shoes’ hashtag.

5 – 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 380 Blue Oat.

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.

6 – The half size “1/2” print

Proceeding to the sixth method on how to spot fake Yeezy Boost 380 Blue Oat size tags, we will have a look at the fake vs real 380 Blue Oats for the half size print.

In the image with the real vs fake Yeezy 380 Blue Oat sneakers above, we have pointed out how the fake Blue Oat 380s have their “1/2” text looking too big and also too thick.

The authentic Yeezy 380s have their “1/2” text smaller and also thinner than the fake shoes’ print.

7 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

Up next, looking at the “US UK FR JP CHN” text on the fake Yeezy Blue Oat’s size tag, you can notice how the replica shoes have their row of text looking thick.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” print

In the image with the real vs fake Yeezy Pepper 380 image above, we have pointed out how the fake Peppers have their “MADE IN CHINA” print improperly font-weighted.

By that, we mean that the fake pair has its “MADE IN CHINA” print looking thinner and narrower than the fake pair’s text.

On the other hand, the legitimate Yeezy Boost 380 Pepper pair has its “MADE IN CHINA” text looking thicker and more defined than the fake pair’s text.

2 – The date of manufacturing print

Looking at the date of manufacturing, the fake shoes usually have their month and year prints looking too thin as well.

Once again, the legitimate Yeezy Boost 380 Peppers have their date of manufacturing print looking thicker and more defined than the fake pair’s print.

3 – The last line of text on the size tag

Moving on to the last line of text on the fake vs real Yeezy Peppers’ size tags, we have pointed out how the fake pair once again has its text looking too thin.

Yet again, the legitimate Pepper 380s have their last line of text looking thicker and more defined than the fake pair’s text.

4 – The ART number text

On the fake Yeezy Boost 380 Pepper pair, the “ART FZ1269” pair has its text looking thicker than the authentic 380 Pepper’s text.

For once on this size tag, the legit Yeezy 380 Peppers have their text looking thinner than the fake pair’s text.

5 – 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 380 Pepper.

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.

6 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

Up next, looking at the “US UK FR JP CHN” text on the fake Yeezy Pepper’s size tag, you can notice how the replica shoes have their row of text looking thick.

On the other hand, speaking of the authentic Pepper 380s, you ca notice in the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 380 Pepper image above how they have their text looking thinner than the fake shoes’ text.

Now it is the time for us to move on to the next Yeezy model, which is the Yeezy 500.

How to spot fake Yeezy 500 (fake vs real)

Moving to the Yeezy 500, these sneakers were released without the Boost technology, but instead, the Adiprene.

As for the Yeezy 500’s, we didn’t launch a guide for every colourway out there yet, due to the fact that Yeezy 500 isn’t as demanded as the 350 V2’s, and that’s why we made a general guide covering every colourway.

Let’s have a look at the fake vs real Yeezy 500 images in order to see how to spot fake Yeezy 500 sneakers.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Now that you had a look at the fake vs real Yeezy 500 reference images, let us explain the flaws on the Yeezys.

The fake Yeezy 500 pairs usually have the “MADE IN CHINA” text looking a lot thicker than the text on the authentic sneakers.

In fact, the legit Yeezy 500 pairs have their “MADE IN CHINA” text looking thinner.

Also, keep in mind that it can be exactly reverse on the replica sneakers, and that’s why we recommend you refer to our real vs fake Yeezy 500 images every time you legit check one of these pairs.

2 – 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.

3 – The date print

Differences between the real vs real Yeezy 500 sneakers manufacturer date are very prominent.

You can notice how, on the fake Yeezy 500 size tag, there is a lot more space between the month of production, the slash, and the year of production.

In this case, we have the authentic pairs produced in the second month of 2018, and the replica sneakers manufactured on the fifth month of 2019, and the replica Yeezys have more space between these elements than the authentic Yeezys.

4 – The Copyright “®” character

A very important spot to check, the “®” is touching the “adidas” text. This is an instant callout for a fake pair of Yeezys. Besides, there is also a different spacing between the “adidas®” and the square above from the real vs fake Yeezy 500 pairs.

5 – 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 500.

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.

fake vs real yeezy 700

Now that you had a look at the fake vs real Yeezy 700 OG images above, let us explain the flaws on the replica Yeezy Wave Runners.

1 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

First of all, on the “US UK FR JP CHN” text on the fake Yeezy 700 OG, the font is thicker while on the legit pairs, the font seems a lot thinner. Besides, the surrounding lines are also a lot thicker on the fake shoes.

2 – The bottom second row of text

As you can see in the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 OG images above, the text on the counterfeit sneakers is a lot thinner than the text on the legit pairs. In fact, the authentic Yeezy Wave Runner pairs have their text looking a lot thicker than the fake pairs’ text.

3 – The “ART” text

It is visible in the real vs fake Yeezy 700 OG images above how the font seems used on the fake Yeezy Wave Runner pair since the “ART” or “FU” printings are taller on the authentic sneakers.

4 – The Copyright “®” character

A very important spot to check, the “®” is touching the “adidas” text. This is an instant callout for a fake pair of Yeezys. Besides, there is also a different spacing between the “adidas®” and the square above from the real vs fake Yeezy 700 OG pairs.

The fake Yeezy 700 V2 pairs usually have the “MADE IN CHINA” text looking a lot thicker than the text on the authentic sneakers.

In fact, the legit Yeezy 700 V2 pairs have their “MADE IN CHINA” text looking thinner.

Also, keep in mind that it can be exactly reverse on the replica sneakers, and that’s why we recommend you refer to our real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 images every time you legit check one of these pairs.

2 – The look of the “MALE/MÂLE” print

Both the real and fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2 may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.

Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy Boost 700 V2.

3 – The Copyright “®” character

A very important spot to check, the “®” is touching the “adidas” text. This is an instant callout for a fake pair of Yeezys. Besides, there is also a different spacing between the “adidas®” and the square above from the real vs fake Yeezy 700 V2 pairs.

4 – 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.

5 – 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.

How to spot fake Yeezy Boost 700 V3 (fake vs real)

Going forward, we have the third release of the Yeezy Boost 700, which is the 700 V3.

Yeezy Boost 700 V3 Azael fake vs real

First of all, we are going to check out the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 700 V3 Azael, and then, we are going to inspect the Alvah Yeezys.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

real vs fake yeezy azael v3

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” print

The fake Yeezy 700 V3 Azael pairs usually have the “MADE IN CHINA” text looking a lot thicker than the text on the authentic sneakers.

In fact, the legit Yeezy 700 V3 Azael pairs have their “MADE IN CHINA” text looking thinner.

Also, keep in mind that it can be exactly reverse on the replica sneakers, and that’s why we recommend you refer to our real vs fake Yeezy 700 V3 Azael images every time you legit check one of these pairs.

2 – 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.

3 – 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 700 V3 Azael.

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.

4 – The medial lines

The lines below and above the “US UK FR JP CHN” text are too thick and fuzzy on the fake Yeezy 700 V3 Azael.

On the other hand, the authentic Yeezy V3 Azael sneakers have their lines look thicker than the fake ones. Keep in mind that the replica sneakers could also have their lines looking thicker than the authentic ones.

5 – The Adidas Copyright symbol

The “R” is placed too far away from the “adidas” text on the fake Yeezys, and on the legit Yeezys, it is placed closer

Please keep in mind that if the “R” makes contact with the “adidas” text, then you are looking at a fake pair.

Yeezy Boost 700 V3 Alvah fake vs real

Moving on to the next Yeezy fake vs real model, we have the 700 V3 Alvah (black).

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Now, let’s proceed to the flaws met on the fake Yeezys.

  • The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

This is one of the most common flaws on every Yeezy model’s size tag, and it is present here too.

If you look at how the letters in the “CHN” text are shaped, you can notice how the letter “C” is smaller than the rest of the letters.

Then, if you look at the letter “N”, you can notice how it is significantly thicker on the last vertical leg compared to the letter on the retail Yeezys.

Moving to the “US” and the “UK” prints, you can notice how the fake Yeezy Boost 700 V3 Alvah pair has its texts looking too thick too, compared to the authentic Yeezys.

  • The size number print

Underneath the ‘US UK FR JP CHN” text, you’ll notice the size number text for every measurement.

Looking at the fake Yeezys, you can see how the “5” in the “265” print is smaller than the rest of the numbers.

Besides, the fake Yeezys also have their numbers looking too thick compared to the authentic Yeezy Alvah’s numbers.

  • The date number print

Looking at the date of producing the Yeezy Boost 700 V3 Alvah, you can notice how the fake Yeezy Alvahs have their text too thick, and not only that but also placed too far away from the slash between the month and the year of producing.

Looking at the legit Yeezy Alvahs, you can notice how the date number print has the same font-weight and spacing on the date number print.

  • The appearance of the MALE/MÂLE text

Both the real and fake Yeezy Boost V3 Alvah may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.

Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy Alvah.

  • The “adidas ®” text at the bottom

This is one of the most blatant flaws met on the counterfeit Yeezys. Most of the time, the fake Yeezy Boost 700 V3 Alvahs have their “adidas” text and the registered trademark “®” symbol placed too close to each other, as to make contact.

The authentic Yeezy Alvahs will never have their “®” character placed as close to the “adidas” text as shown in the fake vs real Yeezy Alvah image above.

  • The APE/CLU/EVN 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 700 V3 Alvah.

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.

Yeezy Boost 700 V3 Azareth fake vs real

Moving on to the next Yeezy fake vs real model, we have the 700 V3 Azareth.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

how to spot fake yeezy 700 v3

Ready? Let’s explain the flaws on the replica Yeezys from the fake vs real Yeezy 700 V3 Azareth image above.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” text

First of all, looking at the top side’s “MADE IN CHINA” text, we have pointed out how the fake Azareth Yeezys have their text improperly font-weighted.

In fact, the fake Yeezy Azareth shoes have their “MADE IN CHINA” text looking bolder and thicker than the legit shoes’ text.

2 – The size number print

Underneath the ‘US UK FR JP CHN” text, you’ll notice the size number text for every measurement.

Looking at the fake Yeezys, you can see how the “5” in the “265” print is smaller than the rest of the numbers.

Besides, the fake Yeezys also have their numbers looking too thick compared to the authentic Yeezy Azareth’s numbers.

3 – The date of manufacturing’s print

On the middle-right side of the size tag, we have pointed out how the replica Yeezy Azareths have their date of manufacturing’s print improperly font-weighted and also badly positioned.

First of all, talking about the font-weight, we have pointed out in the real vs fake Israfil Yeezy image above how the fake shoes have their “04/20” text looking too thick.

The authentic Yeezy Azareth have their “05/20” text looking thinner than the fake shoes’ text, which is too thick.

Then, talking about the placement of the text, we have noticed in the real vs fake Azareth Yeezy image above how the fake shoes have their numbers placed too close to each other, including the slash (“/“) symbol as well.

On the other hand, the legitimate Yeezy Azareth shoes have their “05/20” print with the same amount of space between all of the characters.

4 – The positioning of the “adidas ®” text

Up next, for the forth hand-emoji pointer in the real vs fake Yeezy Azareth image above, we have pointed out how the fake Azareths have their registered trademark “®” symbol improperly positioned.

By that, we mean that the fake Azareth 700 V3s have their registered trademark “®” symbol placed too close to the “adidas” text.

The authentic shoes never have their “adidas” text and the “®” symbol placed too close to each other, therefore never making contact.

If you see a pair that has these two elements in contact, then you are most likely looking at a fake Azareth Yeezy pair.

5 – The “#” hashtag print

Moving on to the fifth hand-emoji pointer in the real vs fake Yeezy Azareth image above, we have pointed out how the fake pair has its hashtag symbol looking too thin.

On the other hand, the authentic Azareth Yeezys have their hashtag “#” print looking thicker and more defined than the fake shoes’ print.

6 – The APE/CLU/EVN 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 700 V3 Azareth.

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.

7 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” line of text

In the fake vs real Yeezy Azareth image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their “US UK FR JP CHN” line of text looking thinner than the one found on the legit pair’s text.

In fact, this is the easiest visible if you look at the bottom left Sid of the letter “U” in the “US” text, where you can see how it is too thin.

Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN fake vs real

Moving on to the next Yeezy fake vs real model, we have the Boost 700 MNVN.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

real vs fake yeezy mnvn

Now that you’ve had a look at the reference real vs fake Yeezy MNVN image above, let’s proceed to the flaws on the fake Yeezys

1 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

Looking at the “US UK FR JP CHN” text in the fake vs real Yeezy MNVN image above, we have pointed out how the fake Yeezys have their text looking too thick.

On the other hand, the legit Yeezy MNVNs have their “US UK FR JP CHN” text is thinner than the fake shoes’ text.

2 – The size number print

Looking at the “265” size number text in the fake Yeezys, you can see how their text is thicker and improperly positioned when compared to the authentic Yeezys’ text.

In fact, the fake shoes have their “6” looking a bit bigger and also thicker than the rest of the numbers.

The authentic Yeezy MNVNs have their size number print at the same font-weight and positioning.

3 – The date of manufacturing

This is the print which indicates when the shoes have been crafted, which is found below the size number text.

Looking at the legit Yeezy MNVNs, you can see how they have the same size, font-weight, and the same amount of space between the symbols on the date number, including the slash (“/”).

On the other hand, the fake MNVN Yeezys have their text looking too thin, too small, too thin, and improperly spaced, as the numbers on the right side of the slash are being placed too close to each other.

4 – The appearance of the MALE/MÂLE text

Both the real and fake Yeezy Boost MNVN may or may not have MALE/MÂLE inscriptions. So whether your sneakers feature the text or not, it is perfectly fine.

Therefore, we do not consider this specific inscription as a way of spotting the fake Yeezy MNVN.

5 – The “adidas ®” prints

A common flaw on the fake Adidas Yeezy sneakers is that they have their “adidas” text and the registered trademark “®” symbol placed too close to each other, so as to make contact.

This is something that is visible on the fake Yeezys in the real vs fake Yeezy MNVN image above as well.

On the other hand, the authentic Yeezys never have their “adidas” text and the “®” symbol placed as close to each other to make contact.

Therefore, when you’ll see a pair of Yeezys with the “adidas ®” elements in contact, you’ll know that they are 100% replicas.

6 – The factory of manufacturing number print

So as to mention, “APE” stands for the factory where the sneakers were manufactured.

In the fake vs real Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN image above, we have pointed out how the fake MNVNs have their APE number looking too thin on the first two numbers, and too thick on the last three numbers.

On the other hand, all of the numbers on the legit Yeezys have the same font-weight.

Yeezy Quantum fake vs real

Moving on to the next Yeezy fake vs real model, we have the Quantum (QNTM).

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

fake vs real yzy qntm

Now that you’ve had a look at the YZY QNTM fake vs real image above, let’s proceed to the flaws on the fake shoes.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” print

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 QNTMs but on each model.

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

2 and 6 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” text

Basically, this is the text which tells you the measuring system of the shoes, expressed in different countries’ numbers, which are printed below as well (we will talk about this at the fifth hand-emoji pointer in the fake vs real YZY QNTM image above).

Even though we have only pointed out at the “US” and at the “CHN” prints, you can see how the fake shoes have their whole “US UK FR JP CHN” text looking too thin, while the legit shoes have their text 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 YZY QNTM.

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.

4 – The “adidas ®” text

In the fake vs real YZY QNTM image above, we have pointed out how the fake shoes have their “adidas” text looking too thin when compared to the text visible on the legit shoes.

Another blatant flaw that the fake shoes can have (not visible in the real vs fake YZY QNTM image above) is that the “®” symbol is touching the “adidas” text, and that’s something you will never see on the retail shoes.

On the other hand, the legit shoes will always have a little distance between the “®” symbol and the “adidas” text, and these two are never touching. With this being said, remember to keep an eye out for this as well, since it is an important factor when you want to spot fake YZY QNTM pairs.

5 – The size row of text

This the line of text which we’ve previously mentioned when we were talking about the “US UK FR JP CHN” text.

The fake shoes have their whole lines of expressing the size of the shoes looking thinner than what it is supposed to be.

On the other hand, the authentic YZY QNTM sneakers have their line of text looking thicker than the fake shoes’.

How to spot fake Yeezy Boost 750 (fake vs real)

Now we will inspect the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 750 on every colourway too, just as the Yeezy Boost 350 V2.

As for the 750’s, the size tag is the best factor of authenticity too, just as the rest of the Yeezys.

Yeezy Boost 750 OG Grey fake vs real

First of all, we are going to inspect the real vs fake Yezy 750 OG on the size tag.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

real vs fake yeezy 750 og size tag

1- The size number text

Instant red flag: the OG Grey colourway is only available in full US sizes. If you see a US10.5 pair, US9.5 pair or anything like that (in half size), it’s an instant callout for a fake Yeezy Boost 750 OG Grey pair.

2 – The “adidas ®” print

 The ® character is barely touching the QR code on the retail Yeezy 750 pairs. On the fake Yeezy Boost 750 OG Grey pairs, there’s no spacing between these two. Also, the text is illegible on the authentic Yeezys, whereas on replicas, the symbol is just barely legible.

3 – The MALE/MÂLE print

The letters “A” and “L” in the “MALE” text are too close to each other on the fake Yeezy Boost 750 OG Grey pairs. They should be barely touching on authentic pairs.

4 – The PO code

The PO code should match the code on the box (pictured below). Look out for the numeric code, as UPC is written on this label but you could also have EAN there instead.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Yeezy-Boost-350-OG-BOX-1024x594.jpg

5 – The ART B35309 print

Take a look at how the “3” characters are too close to the other numbers on the fake Yeezy Boost 750 OG Grey, as opposed to retail Yeezys. For instance, the second three is closer to “5” on authentic pairs whereas on replicas it just touches number “5”.

6 – The date of manufacture

“02/15” is the wrong date. Notice it is written “01/15” on the real pairs. This, by the way, is the date of manufacture.

As a side note, let’s have a look at a replica Yeezy Boost 750 OG Grey size tag on a version of poorer quality because here we can meet a blatant flaw on the fake Yeezys.

Yeezy Boost 750 Triple Black fake vs real

Next up, for the real vs fake Yeezy 750 Triple Black, we are going to check the size tag too.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

real vs fake yeezy 750 black

1 – The “US UK FR JP CHN” print

The “US UK FR JP CHN” text appears to be a lot thinner on the fake Yeezy Boost 750 Triple Black sneakers than the text on the authentic shoes.

In fact, almost every replica Yeezy 750 pairs have their size tag’s text looking a lot thinner than it has to be on the legit pairs.

2 – The MALE/MÂLE thickness

The “MALE/MÂLE” text on the fake Yeezy 750 Triple Blacks has the same flaw from the first flaw that we have pointed out.

The fake Yeezy Boost 750 Triple Black shoes are most common to have the “MALE/MÂLE” print looking way thinner than the text on the retail shoes.

3 – The MALE/MÂLE lettering

Staying still on the “MALE/MÂLE” print, we have pointed out the fact that on the fake Yeezys, the letters “A” and “L” on the “MALE” text are touching, and on the fake shoes, these two letters don’t make contact

4 – The “adidas ®” print

An important spot on every Yeezy Boost sneaker is the “adidas ®” text. Most of the time on the fake sneakers, the “®” symbol is placed too close to the “adidas” text.

On the authentic Yeezy Boost 750 Triple Black, you can notice how there is distance from the “adidas” text to the “®” symbol.

You will never see an authentic Yeezy Boost 750 Triple Black pair having the “adidas” and the “®” symbol touching.

5 – The size number text

Every time you have to legit check the Yeezy Boost 750 Triple Black, analyze the font used for the lettering.

You can see how on the fake Yeezy Triple Black shoes, the number “4” uses a different font on the fake Yeezys than the font on the authentic sneakers, and that’s due to the horizontal line which is longer on the fake “4”, and on the authentic Yeezys, the horizontal line is shorter on the number “4”.

6 – The PO number

The PO code should match the code on the box (pictured below). Look out for the numeric code, as UPC is written on this label but you could also have EAN there instead. This is the same flaw as from the OG Grey size tag.

Yeezy Boost 750 Grey Gum fake vs real

Now it is the time for us to move on to the Yeezy Boost 750 Grey Gum real vs fake size tag.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

As the usual, let’s have a quick look at the Yeezy fake vs real Grey Gum images, and then we will tell you the flaws on the fake Yeezys.

lc yeezy 750

Because you took a look at the real vs fake Yeezy Grey Gum images, let’s move on to the flaws on the fake Yeezys.

1 – The “MADE IN CHINA” text

This text is most commonly flawed on the replica Yeezy Boost 750 Grey Gum sneakers, and that’s due to the thickness.

In the real vs fake Yeezy Boost 750 Grey Gum image above, we have pointed out the fact that the fake shoes’ “MADE IN CHINA” text is a lot thinner and wider than the text on the authentic shoes.

2 – The MALE/MÂLE lettering

On the “MALE/MÂLE” print, we have pointed out the fact that on the fake Yeezys, the letters “A” and “L” on the “MALE” text are touching, and on the fake shoes, these two letters don’t make contact.

3 – The ART text

In the Yeezy fake vs real 750 Grey Gum image above we have pointed out how the fake sneakers’ “ART” text has the letters “A” and “R” divided, while on the authentic sneakers, these two letters are connected and they make contact. On the fake shoes, they don’t make contact.

5 – The PO number

The PO code should match the code on the box (pictured below). Look out for the numeric code, as UPC is written on this label but you could also have EAN there instead. This is the same flaw as from the previous size tags.

6 – The “CHN” print

The letter “C” is touching the letter “H” in the “CHN” print on the authentic Yeezy Boost 750 Grey Gum’s size tags, while on the fake sneakers, these two letters don’t make contact, and they are spaced out.

fake vs real yeezy 750

In the real vs fake Yeezy Grey Gum image above, we have pointed out how the fake sneakers have blank space between the letters “C” and “H” in the “CHN” text, while on the legit sneakers, there is no space between.

Yeezy Boost 750 Chocolate fake vs real

As for the second step of the guide on how to legit check Yeezy Boost 750 sneakers, we are going to analyze the boost sole on both the real vs fake Yeezy 750 sneakers.

How to spot fake Nike Air Yeezy 2 (fake vs real)

As for the last Yeezy which we’ll compare in this ultimate real vs fake Yeezy legit check guide, we are going to check out the Nike Air Yeezy 2.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red October fake vs real

The best indicator to spot fake Nike Air Yeezy 2 is to inspect the pattern of the sneakers on the sides.

If you want to see the full individual guide on how to legit check these Yeezys, click here.

Most of the time, the fake Air Yeezy 2’s have their pattern looking too sharp.

For example, on the Red October Nike Air Yeezy 2’s, you can see how the pattern of the fake shoes is too sharp.

fake vs real yeezy red october

As you can see in the fake vs real Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red October image above, the counterfeit sneakers have the area with the pyramids on the side looking different than the one on the legit Yeezys.

In fact, if you take a look at the fake Yeezy Red October sneakers, you can see how they have their pyramids looking a lot sharper than they have to be on the authentic Yeezys.

Not only that, but that makes the fake pyramids look more defined and textured than the authentic Yeezy Red October’s pyramids, which are less textured and defined.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 Pure Platinum fake vs real

Now we are going to check out the fake vs real Yeezy Pure Platinum (Wolf Grey, OG) sneakers.

fake vs real yeezy platinum

In the fake vs real Nike Air Yeezy 2 Pure Platinum image above, we have pointed out how the fake sneakers have their honeycombs on the side of the sneakers looking less visible than the ones on the authentic Air Yeezy 2’s.

Not only that they re less visible than the retail sneakers’ combs, but you can also notice how the fake sneakers have their honeycombs looking too sharp compared to the combs on the legit sneakers.
