This Y-3 Runner 4D is taking a short break from performance, shifting focus from running to runways. It’s a first for Futurecraft’s data-driven design, and the price tag won’t let you forget it: lacing up in a pair will set you back $550 USD. Don’t whinge, though, they’re worth it.
As a Y-3 edition, these come from the mind of the Japanese design luminary Yohji Yamamoto. Nearly anything from his normal adidas range costs around the $400 mark, so the slight mark-up for this level of tech is a steal.
Furthermore, only 200 pairs will be released. That means lucky buyers get both a piece of history and a guaranteed return on investment. Hell, we’d be happy if adidas were only charging extra to pay their photographer — whoever was behind the lens crushed these shots. Look through the gallery above and try to hate on these shoes – it’s impossible.
Done? Cool, mark the date in the calendar below and set aside some pennies.
