Learn how to spot fake Adidas ZX 8000 Boost's with this detailed 30 point step-by-step guide by goVerify.

4. Box Label

Adidas shoe boxes feature a label on the one side detailing style name, size, color, country of manufacture and a style & PO number. Check all of these details carefully. Tip 1: Check that the style (ART) and PO (#) numbers match those found on the label inside the shoe. Tip 2: scan the barcode (even a photo of one) with a barcode scanner app, the exact product including size should be correct. Adidas ZX 8000 Boost's have an added feature on the box label, a photo of the shoe inside the box as well as a close up photo of the bubble looking Boost midsole texture.

26. Outsole Window

Under the heel and foot arch is a clear window through which you can see the Boost midsole insert, make sure the window is clear with no paint or glue marks.

30. Flexible Sole

The compression molded EVA outsole is highly flexible, this is demonstrated by bending the shoe under pressure.
