adidas Yeezy Boost 350 'Pirate Black' Fake Check
Klekt shows you how to spot a fake pair of 'Pirate Black' 350s in 7 steps.
Due to its booming popularity, the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 is one of the most conterfeited sneakers at the moment. That's why we put together a handy guide to help you spot a fake pair – because if you're spending a fortune on a pair of sneakers, you deserve to get the real deal.
K'LEKT user Jussi was so kind to stop by at our office and let us examine his authentic 'Pirate Black' 350s. The one shown is the February 2016 release. So you can use our pics and the advice given here to compare them carefully with the pair you want to buy.
1. Upper It's unmistakeable – and you can easily sort out bad fakes just by comparing the patterns. On the authentic pair, you'll notice that it follows the shoe's silhouette. This results in a sideways wavelike pattern, while replicas often just go top down.
2. Seam The mid stitching goes all the way under the outsole tip – you can feel that if you put a finger on it. The seam alternates between a crossed and a square shape.
3. Heel tab The red heel tab is sewed on both sides with 5 red stitching points each in the left and right box. The middle box on the tab shows 9 red stitching points. Also check the spacing between tab and collar, which should be about 1 centimeter.
4. Outsoles The BOOST material shows 7 of these flower-like embossings, encircled in the picture below. Also, the BOOST pads in the ball and heel parts are made from a rubber material that different from the rest of the outsole.
5. Insoles The adidas / YEEZY logos are printed in opposite directions on the top, as is the Trefoil logo in the bottom.
6. Laces The authentic version has rope laces with a cross-shaped pattern, they are slightly lighter than the upper. If you look closely, you can also see the seam of the lacing system on the knit upper.
7. Inside The inside tag should be even and show no bumps or raw edges. As always, compare the information on the tag with the one on your shoebox.
Differences between the 2015 and 2016 release A lot of people complained that the original Pirate Black 350s were almost one size too large. The second version that dropped in February 2016 fits a bit tighter, so you should only go half a size down in these if you're looking for a really snug fit. The padded heel is also a new feature in the 2016 version.
