Yeezy Boost 350



Below is a step-by-step guide to assist you in seeing the differences between an authentic pair and a knockoff, broken down by @Fake_Education.

Fake Education: “The unauthorized box is all wrong.


Fake Education: “When you remove the insoles, this is what you see. Notice the retail pair has a black strip going thru the middle, while the unauthorized has exposed stitching.”


Fake Education: “Inside size tag says ‘Sample’ on the unauthorized, which is incorrect.”


Fake Education: “The adidas logo is super-sized on the unauthorized.”


Fake Education: “The ‘YZY’ is massive on the unauthorized. The font is tremendously larger. Easy to spot.”

Fake Education: “The underside of the insoles are completely different on the unauthorized.



Fake Education: “The writing on the insole of the unauthorized is white, which is incorrect. It’s black on the real pair. Also, the wording runs in the opposite direction on the unauthorized.”


Fake Education: “The black stitching pattern going up the middle from the midsole on the unauthorized is just a disaster. On the retail real pair, you can see that there is a clear pattern that looks like an “X” and then a square — and it repeats.”



Fake Education: “First, in the highlighted green area, you see on the unauthorized pair the heel-tab is placed a lot further away from the ankle collar.”
