NEW YORK, Jan 26, 2011 / FW/ — Now available in global Y-3 stores and online at, the Y-3 Cutout Wedge and Torsion Speed Lace Heel are just perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Available in red & black and red & white versions, both the Cutout Wedge and Torsion Speed Lace Heel were previewed at the Y-3 Spring 2011 runway show here in New York.

The Cutout Wedge is a development from the Cushion Wedge which first previewed last season. The leather upper is combined with an adiPRENE wedge sole.

adiPRENE technology provides a superior comfort and maximum function. The cutout detail creates a distinctive and memorable design.

The Torsion Speed Lace Heel is a feminine style which marries fashion elegance and sport functionality. The elasticated lacing is in a crossover style, a detail that gives it an individual touch. This piece also comes in red and black.

Having shifted away from the classic trainer, both these styles bring a fresh and contemporary approach for the Y-3 woman. This is yet another confident display of the collaborative efforts of adidas and Yohji Yamamoto.
