Zoom Mercurial Flyknits, Footscape Magistas, IGNITE evoKnits – apparently the future is ankle high. Y-3 join the ranks of sock-like uppers atop a sculpted athletic sole with the Sport Approach Mid. Unlike others in Yohji Yamamoto’s collection, the fresh sneaker actually looks like it could slot in as a performance model within the sporting wing of adidas. The technically advanced sneaker features a Primeknit sock with a contrasting lined pattern and welded 3M reflective stripes. Adding to the Sport Approach’s athletic aesthetic, two TPU supports rise from a full-length white Boost sole like speed wings.
The Y-3 Sport Approach Mid is available now from select stockists including Kith.
