Yohji Yamamoto has taken the approachable stylings of the adidas Stan Smith and shaken them up with zips that line the laces. Taking a form over function approach, the zips give you the option of flaring out the lace system for a unique look.
The rest of the shoe plays out with smooth leather overlays and a sleek rubber heel counter. The zips then receive Y-3 branding, and ‘Yamamoto’ has been embossed on the tongue. This Smith truly separates itself apart from the rest – and after selling out quick from aphrodite, you can bet it won't be easy to come by.
The adidas Y-3 Stan Smith Zip hasn't been assigned a wider release just yet, but we'll fill you in when more retailers start stocking it.
