Ever worried about purchasing or getting traded a pair of replica or unauthorized sneakers? And wish you had someone who can spot the differences to make sure you wouldn’t get scammed ? Well @Fake_Education has you covered.
Below is a step-by-step guide to assist you in seeing the differences between an authentic Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost pair and a fake/replica, broken down by the homie @Fake_Education.
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.”
REAL REVIEWS FROM REAL CUSTOMERS
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: “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 underside of the insoles are completely different on the unauthorized.”
HAPPY CUSTOMERS THROUGH AND THROUGH
Fake Education: “The ‘YZY’ is massive on the unauthorized. The font is tremendously larger. Easy to spot.”
Fake Education: “The adidas logo is super-sized on the unauthorized.”
Fake Education: “Inside size tag says ‘Sample’ on the unauthorized, which is incorrect.”
AS SEEN ON MTV
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.”
SEE FOR YOURSELF
Fake Education: “The unauthorized box is all wrong.”
