Inside the retail box is paper wrapping to protect the shoes. The paper will have the Adidas logo as well as the Trefoil logo screen-printed onto the paper, check the quality of the printing making sure the edges of the logos are sharp and straight. Make sure the logos are all printed at the same density.

16. Tongue Logo

Adidas Tubular X's will have a molded Adidas logo glued onto a woven strip on the tongue. Make sure the typeface used is correct, make sure each letter has clean straight edges. Take note of the X stitch pattern, below the logo, joining the woven strip to the upper.

If you remove the sockliner you can see the stitching joining the insole to the upper. Make sure the stitching is tight, neat and evenly spaced.
