1. Profile

Learn how to spot fake Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Oxford Tan's with this detailed 37 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

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. Toe Profile

If you look at the shoe from the front you will notice the very pronounced pear shape bulge of the outsole. Also check that the stitch line that starts under the toe cap (and runs under the laces) is at a slight angle as opposed to a straight vertical line.

26. Sockliner Sizes

Under the sockliner there will be a size code embossed into the rubber. Make sure the size matches the size of the label on the retail box and the label inside the shoe. Note how the size 7 is indicated as 7.0 and 8 as 8.0

28. Insole Seam

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Oxford Tan's will have a sonic welded seam tape strip down the middle of the insole, make sure it is not lifting. Also note how the section of heavy duty stitching joining the insole to the upper is very short, this is because the one piece upper only requires limited joins.
