Sophisticated design codes meet an adidas archival icon as Y-3 takes on the Superstar.

Y-3: Yohji Star from SEVENSTORE on Vimeo.

Representing the cutting edge of culture for 50 years, the Superstar has always been important to Y-3, standing out as Yohji Yamamoto’s favourite silhouette. Paying homage to the sneaker’s groundbreaking design, the brand has crafted a bold new Superstar-inspired silhouette - the Y-3 YOHJI STAR.

Experimenting with form and shape, the Y-3 YOHJI STAR re-imagines the iconic Superstar sneaker with a revolutionary new tooling system. Moving from back to front, the low-cut silhouette keeps the heel proportions of the original whilst applying an exaggerated aesthetic to the forefoot in order to convey an accentuated sense of bulkiness. Meanwhile, the iconic shell-toe remains a prominent feature on both silhouettes and is seamlessly complemented by the presence of a Y-3 logo on the tongue and Yohji’s signature across the midsole and upper.

The Y-3 YOHJI STAR is available in-store and online from 20 FEB 20.
