10. Wrapping Sticker

A unique detail of the Yeezy 450s is a Made in Germany sticker on the wrapping. Note the thick cardboard texture of the sticker. Check that the typeface is correct, and that the print is solid and sharp.

12. Heel Profile

Yeezy 450s have an unusual heel. Check the Primeknit upper, and how the weave pattern changes at different areas of the shoe. The color of the upper will be slightly darker at the heel than the rest of the shoe.

17. Toebox

The Yeezy 450s have a uniquely flat toebox. The Primeknit upper doesn't hold its shape so sits quite flat where it stretches between the inner and outer midsole. Check that the toe guard sits at around the same height as the upper. Note how the outsole curves up and over the midsole on the toe. If you look closely you should see the vertical join line on the toeguard midsole.

20. Eyelets

The Yeezy 450s feature thick eyelet loops. Check that the eyelets are woven into the Primeknit and follow the natural pattern of the fabric.
