1. Profile

Learn how to spot fake Adidas Ultra Boost Triple Black 3.0's with this detailed 27 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

5. Box Construction

Adidas Ultra Boost Triple Black 3.0's come in a sturdy retail box, make sure the lid doubles over back into the box to create structural strength. Check that the lid section which folds back into the box is attached with two small glued down tabs. Also note how the side walls, when viewed from inside the box, have a locking system that does not require any gluing. The side panels have tabs that stick right through holes cut into the side corners.

11. Boost Logo

Adidas Ultra Boost Triple Black 3.0's have an Ultra Boost logo embossed into the heel counter. Make sure the typeface used is correct, note how the Ultra typeface is thinner than the Boost typeface. Make sure the logo is shiny while the rest of the supportive heel counter is a matt black.

19. Midsole Detail

Adidas Ultra Boost Triple Black 3.0's have plastic plugs cut into the Boost midsole on the instep side. Make sure the plugs are clearly separate plastic pieces which are cut into the midsole and not part of the midsole material itself.

25. Continental Logo

Adidas Ultra Boost Triple Black 3.0's have a Continental logo debossed into the outsole rubber. Make sure the logo is correct, that the typeface used is correct and that the tiny horse logo is sharp and clear.
