At their essence, adidas and Yohji Yamamoto are united in their endless quest to define and dress one singular object: the human body in motion. For Spring/Summer 2016, Y-3 delivers a bold, iconic collection that explores a kinetic grace with sheer, fluid, ultra-light pieces designed to move – the 3 Stripes in Motion.
Footwear, meanwhile, further builds on two established icons: the adidas Boost and the Qasa. The Boost pairs adidas’ breakthrough performance cushioning with bold new upper designs, while the unmistakable Qasa profile evolves into cool summer sandals in a range of colors and materials for men and women.
Also new this season is the Kyujo footwear style—a silhouette that features an inner “booty” comprised of technical knit fabrics that is overlaid with panels of leather wrapping around the foot.
Offered in both a mid and low cut, the Kyujo debuts in a black and white graphic combination along side iterations in both seasonal prints and colour-ways.
Further, this directional new shoe is detailed with a lightweight outsole, providing the wearer with superior comfort and stability.
