Insole and insole printing: The insole should have clear Adidas branding and be of good quality. Check for any discrepancies or unusual fonts.

Sole and outsole: The outsole pattern and texture should be consistent and detailed. The Adidas logo should be present on the outsole, and the sole should have good traction.
