The collaborative project between Adidas and Yohji Yamamoto is titled Y-3, and it’s had a long-running and highly coveted history. The latest two sneakers to launch from the brand feature both Primeknit and Boost technology, plus they look impeccably clean.
When a sneaker claims it features brand new Boost technology, it’s a pretty big deal. And these two new Y-3 silhouettes, the Kusari and Saikou, both feature exclusive Boost created for Y-3 exclusively. Combining this with stealthy, sleek looks, they’re certainly impressive to the eye and very on trend. Each sneaker is constructed from high quality materials, including Primeknit for the upper, to keep the sneaker lightweight.
Y-3 is renowned for it’s ninja-looking silhouettes, and these and no exception. Both are extremely futuristic and streamlined, with high technology features incorporated, for example the innovative lacing system featured on both models. Y-3 branding is prominent and featured throughout, however they aren’t branded to the point of saturation like many sneakers are these days. Both silhouettes are available in a range of colourways, including black, white and red. The black versions are easily our favourite, due to their versatility – they’re easily matched with any outfit.
If you want to get your hands on either of the new silhouettes, the good news is that you won’t have to wait too long. The Kusari launches worldwide on January 19th, shortly followed by the Saikou on January 26th. Although there isn’t a huge hype surrounding this release, be aware that Y-3 silhouettes are sometimes limited, so make your move early to avoid disappointment. Here at The Idle Man we’re certainly big fans of this capsule.
