Fake Adidas Yeezy 350 V2 Beluga 2.0 Spotted-Quick Ways To Identify Them

I nearly got mugged today in the mall while picking up a pair of the Adidas Yeezy 350 V2 Beluga 2.0. I’ll leave that story for another day; I picked up a couple of pairs today and wanted to quickly help you with detecting the fakes that already flooding several marketplaces.


Both pairs are in men’s size 8; I purposely did that to avoid any confusion. I will not talk about the difference in colors due to the lighting. So I’ll focus on nuances on the shoes. Look at the spacing between the “S” and the pull tab ( the gap is smaller on the fake). The tab is also a bit higher on the authentic pair and if you look at the lateral panel there is a subtle line; on the authentic pair the tab sits above the line but on the fake pair they intersect ( see yellow arrow pointing up). The gap between the tab and the midsole is smaller on the fake pair ( see yellow vertical line).The inclination on the heel panel is exaggerated on the authentic pair. The midsole of the authentic pair is translucent and you can see the boost material subtlety but on the fake the midsole is semi translucent.

 

Zero in on the yellow rectangle, if you look close enough the pattern pattern below the ankle liner is wider on the authentic pair.

The picture above is from another pair of fake I’ve come across as well; it basically reiterates everything I’ve already said.

Again you see how the gap between the tab and the midsole is bigger on the authentic pair. The position of the tab is completely off on the fake pair. i’ll also add that the outsole of the fake pairs appears wider at its base.

The font of the letters on the label are totally different between both boxes. And the UPC code is also not the same on the labels.

The label references are all wrong ( see yellow rectangle) and see the yellow arrow for the different sizing in the letters.

I’ll be adding more slides if I spot any other differences. This is not an exhaustive list and I’m sure the fakes will be upgraded very soon, so stay tuned for any other updates.

UPDATE:

There is an upgraded version of the fakes I jsut came across, and this video below courtesy of Bimmers and Kicks shows you a comparison between the upgraded fake and the authentic pair. By the way, these fakes are now called the 98%ers ( because they are supposedly 98.9% close to the authentic). See video below

  • Too many obvious flaws on this 1 or 2nd gen pair. Look out for the 3rd or 4th. By the 4th they would be 98.9% identical.

    Buying 1st or 2nd gen fakes is like updating the OS on your phone. You always update when the patches and point something version comes out. Not the original release. It’s buggy, problematic and full of obvious flaws.

    • Agreed, would you mind sending me pictures of the 98.9%? i would love to take a look at it.
      I always appreciate your input on this

      • I can check the catalogs and see if they’ve made that higher quality version yet but I don’t personally have them. My comment is coming from experience of what they’ve done with almost every single Yeezy to date.

        Sites like Perfect Kickz and Flykickss will get those versions first before they trickle down to DHgate and other platforms. I’ll send whatever I find and always happy to contribute if possible.

          agreed, i just added a video on the post from an individual doing a comparison between perfectkicks 98%ers and the retail version
