adidas Y-3 Primeknit Pure BOOST Collection
Yohji Yamamoto continues to incorporate adidas' latest innovations into his fashion-oriented Y-3 imprint, a sub-label that has continuously pushed the envelope for the Three Stripes year in and year out and is often attributed with inspiring popular GR silhouettes such as the Tubular range. With the sneaker world currently going Boost crazy, Y-3 adds fuel to the fire by releasing their very own Pure Boost model with a one-piece Primeknit upper. Not content with following standard procedure, Yohji has equipped the Y-3 Primeknit Pure Boost with a unique split tongue design that looks different to anything else we've ever seen before, while a bold heel counter is a nod to the shoe's athletic roots. The darker colourway in this debut collection benefits from a speckled rubber outsole, but the black/white woven version just edges it out as our pick of the two. Either way, you can't go wrong with the latest Y-3 creation - they've done it again! Available now at Sneakerboy.
