Learn how to spot fake Adidas NMD Chukka's with this detailed 27 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

5. Box Boost

Adidas NMD Chukka's will have the word Boost varnished onto the side of the retail box. The word is large enough to run over two sides. This is also an opportunity to have a close look at the Adidas logo and Trefoil logo printed onto the box, make sure the print quality is high and check that the typeface used is correct.

17. Stitch Detail

Take note of the stitching detail below the laces, there is a V shape that joins the tongue to the upper. Make sure all the stitching is tight, neat, evenly spaced and follows the edge of the panels perfectly.

26. Boost Sole

The forefoot is a good place to have a close up look at the Boost material. Make sure you can see at least a few of the hexagonal clusters of tiny dots embossed into the white Boost material. In this instance you can see four clusters along the outer edge of the forefoot in line with the red midsole plug.
