4. Box Label

Adidas shoe boxes feature a label on the one side detailing style name, size, color, country of manufacture and a style & PO number. Check all of these details carefully. Tip 1: Check that the style (ART) and PO (#) numbers match those found on the label inside the shoe. Tip 2: scan the barcode (even a photo of one) with a barcode scanner app, the exact product including size should be correct.

14. Sole Shape

Taking a look from directly behind the unique outsole shape of the Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost's becomes clear. Check that the rounded bulge shape has a consistent curve, make sure the molded ribs end before the top of the outsole meets the upper. Make sure no excess glue shows where the upper and outsole join.

18. Lace Stitch Detail

Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost's have numerous stitch details, check that the stitch line below each lace loop is tight, neat and evenly spaced. Take note of the stitch line along the suede panel under the laces, make sure the double stitch line follows the edge of the suede panel perfectly. This is a good opportunity to make sure the laces supplied are high quality woven tubular laces. Note the pattern of the black and white weave.

34. Insole

When the sockliner insert is removed you can see the Boost system material through a hole cut out of the insole. Make sure the molded bubble like material is showing. Also take note of the stitching joining the insole to the upper, make sure the stitching is neat and evenly spaced.
