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.

18. Collar Tabs

There are collar tabs at both the front tongue area and behind the heel to give support strength to the join between the two halves of the upper. These tabs are cut off at the same height as the collar. Note how the tab also molds into the join, showing the join line down the center.

27. Sockliner Logo

The sockliners will have an Adidas Performance logo and Yeezy logo printed on the top, make sure the printing is solid with sharp edges. Also take note of the antimicrobial fabric, it looks like a very fine weave.

34. UV Midsole

Adidas Yeezy Boost 380 Aliens have a midsole that will glow under UV (Black) light. What is unexpected is that the TPU outsole which appears to be the same material as the midsole does not glow under UV (Black) light.
