Drawing from the depths of the adidas archives and utilising an expectantly idiosyncratic design direction, adidas Y-3 turn their attention toward one of the most culturally significant sneakers ever to bear the mark of the three stripes.
A personal favourite of Yohji himself, the brand build upon the rich history of the original 1969 Superstar silhouette, transforming the heritage sneaker with precise alterations, signature detailing and monochromatic uniformity whilst keeping their prominent DNA intact.
Renamed the Yohji Star the sneakers keep the heel portion largely unchanged, instead opting to play with traditional proportions and enhance the trainers natural bulkiness with the addition of an exaggerated forefoot. Complimented by the iconic shell toe box, premium suede overlays can be found to both the radial and medial sides, supplementing the sneakers with an added hit of textural depth.
Blanketed in alternating colourways of white, ecru and black the Yohji Star’s are finished with Y-3 branding to the tongue as well as the esteemed designers handwritten inscription.
