adidas Y-3 Stan Smith Zip

August 15, 2016

Even if you missed the leak that famously floated around the web months ago, you had to know that a adidas Y-3 Stan Smith was coming at some point in time.

The undisputed best-selling shoe in adidas history, and a linchpin in their overtaking Under Armour for that coveted number 2 spot for leading sportswear brands, Yohji Yamamoto got his hands on the time-honored tennis shoe and didn’t disappoint.

Aptly titled the adidas Y-3 Stan Zip, Yamamoto masterfully added modern enhancements to the low-cut style without stripping away its sporting essence. For the one-piece upper, the revered designer opts for the same material used to outfit the Qasa silhouette, while a traditional Stan Smith midsole resides below. However, though, the most intriguing update is undoubtedly the dual-zip tongue construction.

The functional zippers, when zipped down, reveal embossed Yohji Yamamoto branding. This, of course, is in addition to the Y-3 branding placed on the actual zippers and at the heel.

Adidas hasn’t officially unveiled the shoe yet they’re already beginning to land at international retailers. Stay tuned for more details.
