Real Fake Moonrock Yeezy 350

The adidas Yeezy 350 Boost “Moonrock” was the latest release of the popular adidas Yeezy 350 Boost silhouette that dropped in limited quantities and retail stores.


Due to the limitation of this release, many of us were eager to scoop them up via resellers. While buyer markets such as eBay might be filled with overpriced Moonrocks, they’re also a lot of FAKE pairs floating around.

Fake Education was able to break down all the differences between real and fake pairs to help you from not getting burned and knowing what to look for. Check out the full comparison below.

adidas Logo

“The adidas logo is not has heavily embossed and detailed into the suede panel on the fakes. Also the suede panel on the fakes is a different color clearly and has a different shape.”

YZY Logo

“The “YZY” logo on the suede panel of the fakes is not as detailed or heavily embossed into the suede. Once again shape and craftsmanship is off on the fakes as well. The color of the suede panel is off too.”

Back Heel

“Usually is a difference with the back heel area/tab. But not with the moon rocks.”

Angle of Heel Tab

“Most defining flaw is the placement and angle of the heel tab on the fakes. It is significantly higher and closer to the ankle collar.”

“This is a look at the bottom of the outsole of the right shoe from each pair. Me and @jcollector23 realized that over 50 pairs of retail moon rocks did not have this. So it’s not like this is just this one pair. To the left of the “boost” pod there is holes on each groove on the fake pair. But there isn’t on this real pair or any other real pair inspected. Yes there is holes on grooves on other places on the outsole. But we did not find them like this on any other real pair. Only the fakes.”
