As hideous as they are, the Adidas Yeezy Wave Runner 700 sold out and also caught the eyes of counterfeiters. Here is how to bust the fake pairs.
The nubuck overlay’s hole is wider on the fakes , see yellow circle. the placement of the perforations on the back panel is higher on the fakes-( the gap between the the first perforation and the edge of the midsole is higher on the fake pair). Also notice the color of the midsole, it is snow white on the fakes and light bone on the authentic pair.
Zero in on the carving on the bottom of the sole-the ridges, the width and the entire area is different between both pairs. See yellow square.
Again, fix your eyes on the forefoot area of the midsole; the shapes, the carving and the entire area do not match on both pairs, see yellow circle.
Check out the ridges on the back panel, on the authentic pair, they are more curvy and have a bell shape, but on the fakes the the ridge on the upper part is horizontal, and the one on the bottom isn’t as curvy as the ridge on the real pair. Check out the placement of the holes on the back panel; the holes on the authentic pair are closer to the edge of the midsole than the ones on the fakes.
Well, there you have it folks, I didn’t get a chance to see a picture of the box so I couldn’t tell do a comparison on that, so stay tuned for further updates.
