How To Spot A Fake Yeezy Boost 350 With Your Eyes Closed

share on:

The only thing that is more exhausting than saving up to buy Yeezy Boost 350 is the stress to prove that it’s original. Buying a fake Yeezy Boost 350 is even worse when you realise you bought it at the same price an original goes for.

A Yeezy Boost 350 is very popular on this side of town and we are tired of seeing the fakes. There are so many imitations around, one would think Kanye made them himself to get more money off them.

So the next time you see red Yeezys , you know its fake.  Although the brand has announced that new colors will be coming up, but they’ll be in white and updated tan version. And if they’ll be new colors we know the West’s will be the first to have it.

The lace

The lace and the yeezys shouldn’t be the same. The lace should be lighter that the rest of the sneakers.

The Middle Stitch

The middle stitching should go all the way under the tip of the outsole. You can run your fingers through to be sure.

Heel

At the heel, the sewed square portions at each side should show five hits of red threading. Meanwhile, the rectangle in the middle should include nine red hits. The spacing between the heel pull and collar should be right around one centimeter, but this may vary from size to size.

Insole

The insoles have flipped graphics on each side; adidas Yeezy on the top, and the adidas Trefoil logo on the bottom.

Inner tag

Judging by the great detailing, you can tell the Yeezys are not for everyone , but if you must buy it here’s what you need to know.

A pair of Yeezy cost about N72,000, that’s not the problem. The problem is the availability of Yeezy’s, so it’s hard to find. If you are trying to buy off a black market it cost about N304,200 – N313,200 !

So go forth and stop wearing fake Yeezy Boost 350.
