Welcome to the ultimate Yeezy 700 V3 Alvah real vs fake guide.

Over here, we’ll show you how to check your pair.

Let’s get at it.

How to spot fake Yeezy 700 V3 Alvah

The fastest method to identify fake Yeezy 700 V3 Alvah is to verify the inscriptions on the size tag and the box label.

Replica Yeezys typically lack the quality found in genuine retail pairs,.

  • Colorway – ALVAH (H67799)
  • Style – 700 V3
  • Size – From 4 to 17 (US)

Keep these in mind and search for them in the results.

  1. Download the Legit Check App
  2. Look for the Barcode scanner button
  3. Tap it

1.3. Fake

This is confirmed to be fake:

  • No helpful results.
  • Remember: We have to look for style/colorway/size matches.

2. Size tag

  1. Authentic:
    1. “US UK FR JP CHN” Text: Letters are proportionate and properly spaced.
    2. Size Number Print: Numbers are proportional and of appropriate thickness.
    3. Date Number Print: Text has uniform thickness and proper spacing.
    4. MALE/MÂLE Text: Presence or absence is normal; not an authenticity indicator.
    5. “adidas ®” Text: Adequate spacing between the text and the “®”, no contact.
    6. APE/CLU/EVN Print: All inscriptions can be present with high-quality printing.
  2. Fake:
    • “US UK FR JP CHN” Text: “C” in “CHN” is smaller; “N” is thicker; “US” and “UK” are overly thick.
    • Size Number Print: “5” in “265” is smaller; numbers are thicker.
    • Date Number Print: Text is too thick with incorrect spacing.
    • MALE/MÂLE Text: Presence or absence is not an indicator, but check other signs.
    • “adidas ®” Text: “adidas” and “®” are often too close or touching.
    • APE/CLU/EVN Print: While any inscription can be present, check for poor printing quality like ink blotting and fuzzy lines.

3. Box label

  • Authentic:
    • International Version Label: Features sizes for 6 countries (US, UK, F, D, J, and CHN) with equal prints for each.
    • Serial Number: US releases end with V02 or V03; international (Canadian/European) releases end with V10.
  • Fake:
    • Label Deviations: Any deviation from the standard label and serial number pattern for the respective release version is a sign of a counterfeit. For instance, a US version label ending with a V10 is incorrect.

4. Lacing

  • Authentic:
    • From the wearer’s view: left shoe has the left lace underneath the right lace; right shoe has the right lace underneath the left lace.
  • Fake:
    • Fakes often have lacing inconsistencies and do not follow the authentic lacing pattern described above.

Confusing? No worries, we’ve got your back with this detailed picture:

A quick mention:

  • The steps we’ve written so far are the BEST ways to authenticate this item
  • The next few steps are still reliable methods…
  • … but they apply to non-top-versions of replicas available for this item

If in doubt, we recommend double-checking the steps we’ve explained above this line.

5. Back

You’ll find the notorious Adidas logo right here.

  • Authentic:
    • Adidas Logo: Positioned lower on the sneakers.
  • Fake:
    • Adidas Logo: Placed too high on the sneakers compared to the authentic version.

6. Top-down

  • Authentic:
    • Patch: The grey suede area on the toe box forms a “V” shape, which is not wide or large.
  • Fake:
    • Patch: The grey suede area on the toe box often appears wider, resembling a “U” shape instead of a “V”.

7. Toe box

  • Authentic:
    • Toe Box Area: Less curvy and not as lifted, maintaining a sleek profile.
  • Fake:
    • Toe Box Area: Appears too curvy and lifted up compared to the authentic version.

8. Cage

  • Authentic:
    • Cage Holes: Holes in the cage are more curvy and bumpy, adhering to the authentic design.
  • Fake:
    • Cage Holes: Holes appear less curvy and bumpy compared to those on the authentic shoes.

Authenticity checklist

  1. Barcode Scan: Use the Legit App Checker to scan the barcode of the Yeezy 700 V3 Alvah.
  2. Size Tag Quality: Examine the Yeezy 700 V3 Alvah size tag for inconsistencies in printing quality.
  3. Box Label Details: Inspect the serial numbers and sizes on the box label.
  4. Lacing Style: Ensure the lacing style of the Yeezy 700 V3 Alvah follows the correct pattern, with the right lace under the right shoe and the left lace under the left shoe.
  5. Toe Box Inflation: Check that the toe box is not unusually inflated on your Yeezy 700 V3 pair.
  6. Rear Details: Examine the rear details of the sneakers. Fake Yeezy 700 V3 Alvah sneakers often have the Adidas logo placed lower on the midsole and not centered like authentic pairs.
  7. Pattern from the Side: Verify the pattern of the sneakers from the side. Fake Yeezy 700 V3 Alvah pairs may have wider and curvier holes, with incorrect colors on the grey stitching areas.
  8. Toe Box Suede Area: Check the V-shaped toe box suede area. Replica Yeezy 700 V3 Alvah pairs may have a grey suede area that looks more like a “U” instead of a “V” like authentic sneakers.
  9. Glow in the Dark (GITD) Cage: Inspect the glow-in-the-dark (GITD) outer cage on the Yeezy 700 V3 Alvah. Fake pairs often have more white spots on the cage and shine less brightly than authentic ones.

This list should make it easier to legit check your Yeezy Alvah.
