Shortlist: Legit check on the go
Got to time to read the whole guide? We’ve got you covered:
Check the honeycombs on the side of the sneakers. Fake Yeezys often have pyramids that are either too sharp or not sharp enough.
Verify Size Tag:
Look at the size tag on your Yeezy Platinums. The text on the size tags of replica Air Yeezy 2s is usually too thick.
Examine Nike Swoosh Logo:
Inspect the Nike Swoosh logo. Counterfeit Nike Air Yeezy 2 Pure Platinum sneakers often have a Swoosh that is too thick and protrudes excessively.
Analyze Triangle Pattern:
Observe the pattern of the triangles in the cage. Triangles on replica Air Yeezy 2 Platinum shoes tend to be too sharp and lack the curvature and bumpiness of authentic triangles.
Inspect Tongue Diamonds:
Look at the diamonds on the tongue. Fake Air Yeezy 2 Platinum shoes commonly have an opaque tongue, making the diamonds overly visible.
Check Tongue Height:
Verify the height of the tongue. Replica Yeezys often have tongues that are too short, whereas authentic pairs feature longer tongues that extend beyond the sock liner.
Evaluate Suede Quality:
Examine the suede material quality. Fake Yeezys usually have lower quality suede that doesn’t leave traces when rubbed.
Verify Lacing Strap Text:
Check the text on the lacing straps. Replica Nike Air Yeezy 2 Pure Platinum NRG sneakers often have front-side text that is too thick, curvy, angled, and improperly shaped, while the interior-side text is typically too thin.
Authenticate Reflective Material:
Assess the 3M reflective material. Counterfeit Nike Air Yeezy 2 Pure Platinum shoes often reflect too much light.
