This is a guide to help compare between Fake and Real. There are a few pictures and descriptions that will assist you as a buyer or seller to find 100% authentic items. Please look at the pictures carefully and click on them for larger quality. I will also provide a list on the bottom of this page with a brief description of sellers and buyers who are known for selling fakes, use my photos, or flake for a meet up.
Fake- 2016 Yeezy 350 Beluga. Fake Beluga back tab is wider and the stripes also wider than authentic. The inside shoe size tag is a larger font on fakes. On fake insoles, it doesn’t have a dash in between YH0010 and the font is thinner. The size range doesn’t have .0 as the ending.
Fake- 2016 Yeezy 350 Beluga. Box always have the major flaws. With new Yeezy releases always try to buy the shoes with the box. The fake box for the Beluga has a darker shade than the authentic box. The font on the size tag box is wrong. The international box is the fake one. The man on the fake box is skinner than the authentic man, even though the head attaches. Inside the box didn’t have the bottom cover.
Fake and Real- 2016 Yeezy 350 V2 Copper. The back tab must have a flash picture taken in order to see the color of the material. The nylon on the fake(1st Picture) stays black while the authentic becomes purple black(2nd Picture).
Fake and Real- 2016 Yeezy 350 V2 Copper. The insoles on authentic has the print closer to the back of the insoles rather than the fake. The sizing in copper V2 should be only in whole sizes and not in half insole sizes.
Fake- 2015 Yeezy 750 Triple Black. The insoles have no design and is thinner on the fake version. The authentic has design and are thicker. The size font is wrong on the fake pair which is the top insole in the picture.
Fake- 2015 Yeezy 750 Triple Black. I don’t have another pair of 2015 Yeezy 750 Triple Black to compare so I will use the chocolate 750. The size 9.5 is the triple black and the size 8 is the chocolate. First location to check is the box before the shoes. The font size on the sticker is wrong size and tilted. The head of the man logo should be connected on an authentic box. The box material is also different. The fake is smoother and have less in-depth circles.
Fake- 2016 Yeezy 350 V2 Copper. These Yeezy primeknit is so good its almost hard to tell. Its always the small details that give the shoe away between real and fake. This legit check guide is only for V2 coppers. Font size on the labels for the hang tag are suppose to be thinner on the authentic pairs, the fake pairs are thicker.
Fake- 2017 Supreme CDG Hooded Sweatshirt Black. Copies are getting better but please don’t get fooled. If the seller is too lazy or doesn’t want to give you detailed pictures, simply don’t buy from them. First picture is of the authentic box logo CDG print, notice any difference? The SHIRT on the box logo is thicker font on the fake version.
Fake- 2017 Supreme CDG Hooded Sweatshirt Black. The tags are easier to tell if its fake or not. Authentic tags are on top, as you can tell from the fake on the bottom, alignment is wrong and font size in the back is wrong. Authentic font is thinner than the fake version.
FAKE- Supreme Motion Tee. At first it is hard to tell which tee is real or not but take a closer look at the tags and you can tell the difference. The black motion tee is fake because of the size tag. The copyright R is not thin enough. Look at the back of the tag and you will see no watermark, font size is wrong and tumble dry extra large which doesn’t make sense.
FAKE- 2014 Jordan Infrared VI. Here is a sample picture of a real and fake pair. They look almost identical. Take a picture of the VI without flash and if the 3M doesn’t shine as bright, its most likely not legit. We show a picture of a fake pair underneath. Also the fake pair has a sloppier glue job.
FAKE- 2014 Jordan Infrared VI. Never buy a new shoe without the box. It gives the new item a higher chance of fraudulence. The seller stated this new pair came in “replacement” box without shoe size sticker or stamp code. This increases the chance of your pair being fake.
FAKE- 2014 Jordan Infrared VI. These are super hard to spot. Production date is wrong. Fake dates are 5/14/14 to 6/10/14. Real dates are 6/11/14 to 7/10/14. This is a picture of an early release shoe size tag.
FAKE- 2004 Jordan VII Olympic. Take a look at the midsole carefully. The color for the gold and red are off.
FAKE- 2004 Jordan VII Olympic. Jordan Olympic VII did not come out 2006 but actually 2004. The bar code and date is not attached like they are on authentic Jordan’s in this era.
REAL- 2004 Jordan VII Olympic. Look at the authentic colorway.
FAKE- 2012 Jordan XI Bred. UPDATED 9/20/17. Fakes are getting so good its barely easy to spot as it use to be. Please pay close attention to detail as that’s whats going to help determine what is real or not. This box top is blurry on the XI which is a positive sign but the YOU MADE THEM ICONIC is misspelled to YOU MADE THEN ICONIC.
FAKE- 2012 Jordan XI Bred. UPDATED 9/20/17. The rip tag for the retail price is fully glued on, none of the retail pairs are like that. The whole shape of the top of the shoe is off, its too much of a box and less of a curve. The midsole foam glows in black light which the real doesnt.
FAKE- 2012 Jordan XI Bred. Shoes are becoming harder and harder to spot FAKES. At first glance, these 2012 Jordan XI Bred are hardly noticeable but the flaws will be shown. They were mainly not noticeable upon the shoe but the box has many flaws.
