Y-3's Latest Kaiwa Model Gets a Release DateRelease: 3 August 2018
One of the freshest Y-3 silhouettes this year has finally received a release date. Initially unveiled at the Fall/Winter 2018 runway, the Kaiwa trainer brings back retro adidas x Yohji Yamamoto vibes.
Dubbed ‘conversation’ in Japanese, the model represents constant dialogue between the two designers around craftsmanship, technology, and street culture. Taking it back to their 90s principle of comfort through geometry, the silhouette boasts big bubbles of white foam for a 3D effect, while black leather and nylon panels provide a contrasting sleek sock-like upper. Y-3 branding on the elongated tongue and a Yohji Yamamoto wordmark along the EVA midsole finish off the futuristic aesthetic.
Pairs will drop globally on August 3 at Y-3 flagship stores, select retailers, and Y-3.com!
