This spring, Y-3 drops a new version of the iconic Y-3 RUNNER 4D. Leveraging Adidas’ extensive archive of computational athletic data, ADIDAS 4D is a high-performance midsole crafted with light and oxygen using Digital Light Synthesis™ printing technology. The Y-3 RUNNER 4D II features uppers comprised of a white double-layer knit, which further increases stability in the lower part of the shoe. The inner layer is woven with the Adidas 3-stripe motif and bears the Yohji Yamamoto logo at its center. It evolves the breakthrough properties of ADIDAS 4D and features a wider footbed and a thicker, higher midsole for greater multi-directional stability; higher energy return in specific areas for more powerful bursts of movement; and a new Continental rubber outsole for improved grip on any surface. This evolution cements the daringly futuristic Y-3 RUNNER 4D II as the vanguard of contemporary sneaker design.
A limited quantity of the Y-3 RUNNER 4D II will launch on May 2nd on www.y-3.com and in a selection of Y-3 flagship stores and retailers worldwide.
