Learn how to spot fake Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black Red's with this detailed 35 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.
Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2's have wrapping inside the box to protect the shoes. The wrapping is a dark cream colour and the paper itself is thick and rigid.
Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black Red's 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.
Make sure the high quality stitching along the edge of the tongue is tight, neat and evenly spaced. Make sure the width of the hem is even and that the stitch line follows the edge of the hem perfectly.
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 sockliners often cover more than one shoe size, in this case both 8.5 and 9.5.
