Hyped streetwear is always at a risk of being counterfeited and people buying expensive shoes can often fall victims to fakes. This is why we decided to build up a guide on how to legit check Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2.
With their popularity, it makes sense that someone would try to profit out of it by selling non-genuine copies. In this guide, we will cover the ways you can find out if your Yeezys are legit.
Still unsure? Our professional legit check services got your back. Send over some high quality photos and find out if your pair of Yeezys is legit!
The Insole Method
Checking the insoles of your shoes is a great place to start verifying your shoes, as there are plenty of give-away signs.
The real Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 have a high-quality print on the insoles.
Make sure to check that the text is centred on the front side of the insole, no matter the size or condition of the shoe.
Look for the font, bolding and the spacing between the letters - legit Yeezy insoles have a very legible text, whereas fakes can have less sharp letters and narrower spacing between them, with an overall less “crisp” text. You can see the Real vs Fake Yeezy 350 V2 comparisons in the photos below.
The quality of the text and Adidas logo is another important factor to consider when legit checking your shoes - authentic insoles are highly unlikely to have the print faded or chipped off like you can see in our Fake vs Real Yeezy 350 v2 comparison photos.
Check the backside of the insole as well - there can be plenty of signs there too.
Pay attention to the Adidas logo on the heel of the insole - the leaves should point to the right when looking at the backside of the insole from above as shown in our Yeezy 350 V2 real vs fake example comparison. This should be the case for both the right and the left insole (both logos should point in the same direction).
You should also check the distribution of the pressed pattern on the backside of an insole - it must be located all around the insole leaving no spaces on the sides. You can clearly see the difference of an authentic insole from the counterfeit one in our photos.
However, the slope on the inward edges of the insoles should have a curve to it, so the pressed pattern may not have such a sharp edge in that part of the insole.
The Sewings Method
Checking the sewings of your Yeezys can also help you distinguish a real pair from a fake one. Just like with the insoles, the quality of the sewings is the main give-away sign.
The stitches on the real Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 should be evenly spaced and are very unlikely to stick out unless the shoes are heavily worn.
You should also pay close attention to the shape of the holes and their distribution on the bottom of the shoe. The holes need to form a grid easily divided into three straight lines. In the photos below you can see that the fake Yeezy 350 V2 shoe has a more wavy pattern to its holes.
Another thing to look for is how the Adidas stripes go all the way down to the bottom of the shoe - about ½ to ⅔ into the stitch line.
The Size Tag Method
The tag is what many counterfeit makers mess up the most, as there are lots of different fonts on it. We suggest always comparing the tags on your Yeezys with verified tags.
When legit checking your shoes look for the potential font and spacing differences.
You should especially pay close attention to the spacing and bolding of the lines like you can see on the photos below.
Also, make sure to check if the art on your Yeezys matches your model - we recommend looking up verified legit items for comparison.
Utilizing all of these methods should give you a pretty good understanding whether your Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 are real or fake, yet we suggest you use our Legit Check service to guarantee a simple, fast and reliable check performed by our professional team using these and many other techniques to verify the authenticity of your grails.
