Compared to previous releases from the adidas Y-3 line, the new Boxing silhouette seems extraordinarily ordinary – it doesn’t have the same wild look we’ve come to expect from Yohji Yamamoto. So in a sense, he’s done exactly what we’d expect in defying our expectations. This is getting confusing. The simple street-style sneaker has an upper made predominantly out of mesh, with a teal leather binding snaking its way around the laces. The Three Stripe lacing structure hugs the side of the shoe, leading down to a thin EVA wedge midsole.
You can pick up the pugilistic Y-3 Boxing from select stockists, including online from Solebox.
