“Youth Fashion News”: What better details can be easily ignored between fakes and real Yeezys?
Graham Wetzbarger: Be sure to check the quality of the suture. Look for excessive or visible glue stains where the sole is attached to the shoe. Shoelaces can usually be used as a giveaway: make sure they are the correct pattern and completed correctly.
Finally, look at the logo and brand mark of the entire shoe. They should be clean, crispy and evenly weighted.
TV: When buying Yeezy’s pair, what materials do we need to prove its authenticity?
GW: The manufacturing process of the 750 consists of many complex components. These help to distinguish between genuine and fake shoes. Starting with Boost material:
This proprietary foam is composed of TPU containers that are infused with air and bonded together. If you are familiar with this look and feel, then you will proceed smoothly.
The first thing to consider is the overall quality. Look for alignment issues, material separation, or any other quality issues that do not meet your requirements.
If you find any of these problems, they may be fake.
Next, look at the hole near the toe box. There should be 5 holes in the first row, as shown above, there are only 4 fakes.
Next, look at the pins on the side of the shoe. The stitches should be even and straight. Note that in the fake above, the stitching quality is poor.
Next, look at the stitching on the Velcro of the belt. You won’t see poor quality stitches or threads like the fake above.
Next, look at the internal belt. There should be a small gap between the Velcro and the three flat reinforcements. Note that in the two forgery examples above, the top one is too large, and the bottom one has no gaps at all.
Next, look at the upper seam on the back of the shoe. The seam should be straight up, as shown in the real seam above.
Note that on fakes, the seam moves upward at an acute angle.
Next, see how they stand. They should stand upright and stay in shape. Note that on fakes, they appear to wither and collapse inward.
Next, take a look at the insole. The left-right direction should be opposite to the above direction.
Finally, take a look at the dust bag (if any). The top stitch should have 2 lines. Please note that the fake above has only one line.
TV: What is the retail price of a pair of shoes, and what price should raise the alarm for the resale market?
GW: When launched on June 11, the retail price of Yeezy 750 Boost was $350. Currently, any commodity below $1,500 is a red flag in the resale market.
But things often fluctuate, which is why it is important to understand your market and see the comparable [price] between different sellers.
TV: What does the real Yeezy Boost label look like?
GW: Boost itself has no tags. You will need to look carefully at the label on the box and compare the style number, PO, artwork number, and even the barcode. Each shoe has an associated label. This information should match the contents on the box.
TV: Are they half the size?
GW: Yeezy Boost 750 (gum sole) is available for half size for the first time. It is expected that future releases will also be available in half the size. Light brown and black are only available in full size.
What kind of packaging will the real Yeezy sneakers for TV use?
GW: Yeezy Boost 750s is packed in a paper box that is not easy to fold. The new plastic-soled packaging box is very smooth, with diamond-shaped patterns on the packaging of earlier versions.
TV: Any other tips?
GW: Whenever you shop, you should buy from a trusted source to ensure authenticity, and have a customer service department that can contact you, and use a secure payment processor.
I can’t tell you how many stories I’ve heard, people order goods online, never get them, and then ruin their credit cards a month later.
