Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Shape
Easily one of the most important things when spotting a fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 is the shape of the 350 V2. Adidas have created the Yeezy V2 to have a distinctive shape & style that is hard to replicate, which is why fake yeezy's are lacking this. Just take a look at the image above and you will see the differences from the real & fake Yeezy 350 V2.
There are various aspects you need to pay attention to when comparing the overall shape. First of all, if you look at the curvature and bend in the sole/bottom of the Yeezy Boost. You will notice that the real Yeezy V2 has a much deeper curve at the front of the shoe, but also there is a dip in the middle of the shoe also. Neither of which can be seen on the fake pair, so a perfect example of how to spot a fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2.
On top of this, we highly recommend that you pay close attention to the toe box too. Many fake pairs have a very rounded toe box at the front of the shoe. Whereas a real, legit pair has a sharper toe box, which isn't as rounded as the fake pair shows.
Probably the best way to spot a fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2, the stripe. Not only the stripe length, but the positioning and where it starts and ends. The stripe gives the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 an edge that makes legit checking & spotting a fake or real pair so much easier. Plus, with the tips below on exactly how to spot a fake Yeezy V2 stripe, you will be legit checking your pair in no time.
First of all, when looking at legit checking fake 350 V2 stripes, you will need to look at the start & end positioning, both front and back. However, all 350 V2's differ currently due to changes Adidas made after the Beluga 350 V2, which is why we have broken the colours down for you.
Beluga - the stripe on the Beluga Yeezy 350 V2 curves around the front toe box of the shoe, which is different to all the other 350 V2's. One thing you MUST be sure to check when legit checking your pair, is to look where it starts & ends. On the Beluga 350 V2, the stripe curves around the front of the shoe & meets the centre stitching right near the end of the toe box. Whereas on fake pairs, we have seen the stripe to continue straight to the toe and not curving, or either curving into the centre of the shoe, but much higher up. So, beware of this when spotting a fake pair of 350 V2's.
On top of this, on the beluga 350 V2 the stripe at the back on the shoe stops at the stitching. So, if the pair you're looking to buy has a stripe that continues on further than the middle stitching at the back of the shoe, then you have just spotted a fake Yeezy V2.
Other 350 V2 colours - Since the Beluga 350 V2, Adidas has update the 350 v2 so pairs that you may have though were fake, are probably legit. The stripe no longer comes to the middle of the shoe, but now almost meets the bottom of the toe box before the centre. So, the stripe is no longer curving around the toe box, it just runs straight down the front. The back of the stripe has also changed, unlike the Beluga 350 V2, the other striped 350 V2's now end just after the stitching at the back of the shoe, rather than beforehand.
Fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2's are often easily found to be a fake when looking at the stripe. You will tend to notice on fake pairs that they either stop too early on & don't curve round far enough (like you can see in the real vs fake image above). Or, run too far down to the rubber toe at the front of the shoe. Obviously, you need to make sure that when you're comparing a real vs fake 350 V2 that you're doing it against the same colourway just to ensure you're doing a real legit check, but these errors tend to stand out and are easy to diagnose as a fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2.
Another easy way to spot a fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2 comes down to the actual SPLY-350 writing on the side of the stripe. You will notice on fake pairs that some of the lettering isn't actually spelt correctly, mainly when looking at the "Y" or "0". You will notice in the images above that there is a difference between both of the pairs above. The legit Yeezy 350 V2 shows a full "Y", whereas the fake pair looks more like a "V" than a "Y".
We have noticed this is a regular problem when comparing real and fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2's. So definitely something to look out for when you're looking to buy a Yeezy Boost 350 V2, as it's one of the easiest ways to identify and legit check a fake pair over a real pair.
We have noticed that whilst legit checking Fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2's that actual overall structure of the shoe never seems to be right. We noticed that the tongue is always flimsier than real Yeezy Boost 350 V2's and it's very easy to spot. This is most likely due to a lower quality primeknit upper, looser stitching and just the overall shape of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 being off.
Obviously as fake pairs continue to get better the smaller, harder to spot issues like this are going to get better. So, when legit checking your Yeezy V2 to see whether it's real or fake, we recommend using all the other tips before this one. The differences tend to be fairly minimal as you can see in the images above, so don't rely on this as the main legit check for the Yeezy V2 you're about to buy, as you could still be buying a fake pair.
The exact same thing applies to the rear heel tab too. Adidas's legit Yeezy V2's have a very tight rear heel, which is why it bends back & has ripples down the stitching (as you can see in the image above). We have seen fake pairs that are purely straight & not curved at all, which is almost instantly an indicator of a Fake Yeezy 350 V2. However again, this shouldn't be the main area you focus on when legit checking the fake or real pair, as other features are likely to be off before this one.
Inside Rear Heel
The inside markings on the heel tab is a very good indicator of a Fake Yeezy 350 V2. We have noticed on many unauthentic pairs, that the 3 matte strips that run down the heel are different on Fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2's.
Real Yeezy Boost 350 V2's have 3 almost matte black stripes running down the back of the heel, on all colours. However, we have seen on many Fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2's, that the 3 stripes are shinier, and also have 2 gloss lines that run either side of each stripe, which is very blatant. So, this error can be a super easy way of telling whether the pair is real or fake when you're legit checking. However unauthentic Yeezy manufacturers will jump onto this error in no time and are likely to fix it, so make sure to use the other tips above too, to ensure you're doing a detailed legit check to avoid buying Fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2's.
Overall Quality Control
When legit checking fake or real Yeezy Boost 350 V2's, it is vital you get as many pictures of the shoe from many angles as possible. We highly recommend paying close attention to overall quality control of the shoe, as from the fake pairs we have seen, the build quality isn't great. Which means there have been many parts almost hanging off the shoe, and glue stains and markings all over the Yeezy 350 V2 sole.
However, we advise you take this with a pinch of salt. Adidas sell the shoes for £150, not the resell price you pay, which means quality isn't going to be fantastic anyway. So please be aware even real Yeezy Boost 350 V2's are likely to lack quality control and have glue markings around too, just not as many as we have seen on fake pairs.
Adidas Yeezy Boost Technology
One of the biggest & best identifiers for Yeezy Boosts is always, and has always been the Boost technology. Fake Yeezy V2 manufacturer still haven't been able to master the Adidas boost technology, which is why this is one of the most important checks when spotting Fake Yeezy Boost 350 V2's. We have put together our top 5 tips in legit checking your Boost technology, so you can spot fake & real Yeezy V2's easier.
