Y-3’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection entirely reframes the collaboration between Adidas and Yohji Yamamoto, creating a space for the German athletics pioneer and the Japanese designer to reinterpret each other’s most iconic design codes. This yields the season’s most directional footwear — shoes that are boldly progressive while remaining rooted in the Adidas archive.
The Y-3 FYW S-97 is Yamamoto’s reimagining of a foundational Adidas style, the Salvation, which was one of the first running silhouettes to utilize Feet You Wear technology. The Y-3 FYW S-97 presents this archival style elevated with modern Adidas technologies, including Primeknit, which wraps the foot in an engineered fit, and BOOST ™, Adidas’ most responsive cushioning which delivers incredible energy return.
The innovative design offers a flexible, multi-layer upper embroidered with the Yohji Yamamoto signature, as well as suede and leather details at its heel and forefoot. Its unique black – and – white midsole, which hearkens to the Salvation, features cut-outs that offer a glimpse of the powerful Boost technology contained within.
Available in two color combinations, the Y-3 FYW S-97 will drop on July 18th at Y-3 flagship stores, Y-3.com, and select retailers worldwide.
