1. Profile

Learn how to spot fake Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga 2.0 with this detailed 37 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

6. Box Construction

The retail box will have well constructed supportive side walls to keep the box rigid and to improve protection. Check the structure of the folds, make sure that the top edges are square. The short sides of the box will be much thicker than the long sides. Check inside the box, take note of the large finger hole on the short side of the box, it will have a perforated fold to allow your finger in to pull the box open. Tip: The inner of the box is locked into the outer and the two halves cannot be separated easily without breaking the box.

13. Heel Tab

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga 2.0s come with a heavy duty pull tab on the heel. Check the quality of the weave, there should be no loose ends. Take note of the thin red detail stitch down the center of the pull tab, make sure it is wider that the rest of the stitching. You should also see a box shaped stitch pattern detail in the center of the pull tab, this holds the pull tab in shape.

23. Inside Label (L)

The second shoe label will be the same as the first shoe except for two things. Make sure the last 1-3 digits of the 13 digit Unique Security Number are different. Make sure the tiny symbol inside the manufacturer "QR" code is different on each label.

36. UV Logos

The sockliner logos and side SPLY-350 logos will glow under UV (black light).
