On the side of the retail box is a Yeezy Boost 350, Adidas and Trefoil logo as well as the words Made by Adidas, Adidas.com/Kanye. Check the quality of the printing, make sure the logos are solid with clean sharp edges. Also make sure the typefaces used are correct, pay specific attention to the diagonal bar through the 0 in 350. Make sure the logos are center aligned within the side panel.
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. Tip: There are two layers of wrapping, not just one.
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.
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.
