Y-3 Give the adidas Superstar a Classy Rework

Date: September 10 2018

By: Cesca Benson


Yohji Yamamoto has taken a break from his futuristic designs to give a sophisticated twist to the adidas Superstar.

The monochrome Y-3 make-up, dubbed the Superknot, swaps out the usual eyelets for lace loops that are threaded through the upper and secured at the toe with the eponymous knot. The shell toe and textured midsole ensure these don’t stray too far from the source material, but the Three Stripes have been removed for a sleeker look. In their place, Yamamoto’s name is stamped in gold at the heel for an added touch of luxury.

If you want to level-up your Superstar game, these are available now from Sneakersnstuff.
