6. Thumb Hole

The slide out tray will have a thumb hole that is cut out along the side and perforated across the top edge. Note how the sides of the cut out are curved and not a straight line, take note of the number of perforated cuts along the top edge.

15. Heel Tab Back

If you roll the pull tab over you will see how the tab has been closed off at the back with a small line of stitching. This helps create the pull tab's rigid structure. If you look at the front of the pull tab you can see this stitching on both sides.

21. Eyelets Inside

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Glows have two suede patches that hold the laces in place that can only be seen from inside the shoe. Take note of how there are no stitch lines joining the patches to the upper. Make sure the bigger suede patch holding the top two lace loops is separated from the lower patch holding just one lace loop in place. Tip: Take this opportunity to have a close look at the tape behind the upper join, note the fine vertical line texture.

37. UV Outsole

Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Glows have an outsole that will glow under UV light. What is unexpected is that the TPU midsole which appears to be the same material as the outsole is not UV light responsive. This means that the outsole which curls up around the heel glows while the midsole does not.
