Every authentic, real Boost will have nipples. The amount on each pair of shoes do differ due to the different styles. For example a Yeezy Boost will only have the Boost showing on the bottom sole of the shoe, whereas a Ultra Boost, NMD or EQT and the nipples will appear different on all of these.
BUT, it is key that throughout your Adidas Boost there are nipples that stick out and are textured if you run your finger across the surface.
Its quite easy for us to tell is the Boost Technology is real if you look at the texture. On the original Yeezy Boost 350, the boost technology had a distinctive texture to it, which follows through in Legit Ultra Boosts, NMD's and more.
WWhatWhat you're looking for, is a wavy style texture throughout, as seen on the Moonrock image. But, Adidas since then have changed and altered the Legit Boost Technology, so they still contain a little texture, but the Boost is slightly shinier and has more markings, which is a better detector of whether your Boost is real or not.
