Now the boots are very popular, but they are produced in a limited edition. Therefore, replicas of the 350 model are very common. But, you can recognize a copy by a large number of differences from the original.

There are a lot of color options for the Adidas Yeezy 350 V2 sneakers, but until 2016 there was no white version. Now this oversight has been corrected, and the world has seen Kanye West's chic sneakers with the cute name "Cream Withe". It is they who will act as the object of comparison of the original Adidas Yeezy 350 V2 sneakers and fakes. After all, replica manufacturers always keep their finger on the pulse and try to keep up with famous brands. Otherwise, they will remain without profit.

Original Yeezy Boost

The form

Although the shoes are very similar in appearance, a closer look reveals many differences. They are hidden in the quality of tailoring and assembling shoes.

The original differs from the fake in 2 important criteria - high-quality assembly and precise cut.

The sole of the original has the shape of a circle. In a fake on the right sneaker, a semicircle is visible, and on the left everything is already even.

Fabric and pattern

The upper part of the sneaker is made from branded Primeknit textiles. This material takes the shape of the foot well and quickly. The direction of the fibers of the fabric goes from left to right. For fakes, the fiber lines are directed from bottom to top.

The Yeezy Boost 350 V2 features branded woven lettering on the outer sides. The inscription "SPLY-350" on the fake differs from the one on the original in 2 elements:

  1. The letter "S" is made at a large slope
  2. Number 3 has the same upper and lower parts. On the originals, this figure has a shorter and rounder upper part than the lower part.How to distinguish a fake Yeezy Boost (Easy Boost)

The stitching in the middle of the shoe runs from the top to the heel. The line resembles the alternation of "X" and a square. The seams on both boots should be symmetrical and without "tearing".

Some yeezyboosts have a fabric loop adorning the heel counter. Buttonhole width - 1 cm. On the originals, there is a seam in the middle of the buttonhole. Fakes may not have this seam, or there is an uneven one.

On non-solid original sneakers, the loop is stitched with contrasting threads. You can also determine the originality of shoes by the number of stitches:

  1. There should be 8 stitches in the center of the buttonhole
  2. At the point where the loop is attached to the boot - 5

The insoles are easy to remove - they are not glued.

Fake laces are too soft. The original ones are thick and hard. The pattern on the laces is different from the pattern of the fibers of the fabric from which the sneakers themselves are sewn. It resembles a cross. In color options, the laces are slightly lighter than the fabric of the shoe itself.

    In our time, it is very difficult to distinguish such fakes, as they are well-made and very difficult to distinguish from the original. Therefore, you need to carefully make your choice of each company, since everything can be faked now. Thanks for the information.
