When you open the box, you'll find large FOAM RNNR text printed on the interior of the lid and box. This is an inverted version of the traditional Yeezy retail box design. Check that the print is solid and isn't flaking off anywhere. Make sure the typeface used is correct. Note the thin, exposed cardboard edge around the box. The short sides of the box will lock together with notches on the inside. Check that the short sides slant down sharply toward the front to meet up with the long side.
The back of the Foam Runners is a good place to see how the shoe is designed for a snug fit around your heel. Note how the shoe bulges lower down and then comes together at the Achilles' in a pear-like shape. Check that the outsole curves up into the heel and is clearly visible from the side.
The toe of the Foam Runners has five wavy ventilation holes that run from the collar to the toe. Check that they are neat with no rough edges. Make sure there are small thin sections of foam holding the holes together. Note the molded diamond-shaped indent that comes to a point just below the middle ventilation hole.
Inside the hole on the heel is a small debossed Adidas Sportswear logo. Check that they typeface is correct, and the debossing is neat. The edges of the logo should be rounded. Note how the letters of "adidas" are not consistent in thickness and size.
