Avant-garde fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto has had a successful partnership with adidas for over a decade with sportswear label Y-3 and now brings his unique viewpoint under his Y's line for this version, the Stan Smith Y’s. The bones of the original shoe are there - that is, the sleek, simple silhouette - but that’s where the similarities end. Yamamoto’s version is executed in several materials; thick navy canvas on the lateral and medial quarters; grey suede accents on the eyestay and heel tab; and white smooth leather on the toe box and tongue. Hand-stitched style zig-zag embroidery replaces the original perforated 3-Stripes, with threads overhanging the midsole, enabling them to fray over time. A Stan Smith callout and trefoil sit debossed on the heel, whilst an oversized Y’s logo lives on the tongue. These will be available in-store and online starting Saturday; March 15th.
