“Y-3 has been the uniform of the street since 2003,” said Yohji Yamamoto backstage before the spring ’18 show today at Paris Fashion Week Men’s.
The sportswear powerhouse and the iconic Japanese designer celebrated the 15th anniversary of their relationship with the introduction of four new sneaker styles using the most cutting-edge technology.
The new Suberou slip-on sneaker comes with statement graphics on the tongue. The Bashyo is a slim, midcut style that mixes stretch canvas, leather and rubber. The Saikou comes with Adidas Boost cushioning, socklike Primeknit upper and suede toe cap.
The Kusari has a brand-new side-facing lace system for increased stability. Slip-on sneakers and sock style models are set to be an huge trend for spring ’18, but let’s not forget that Adidas has spearheaded these constructions from the get-go.
Red high-top looks made for a celebratory splash of color amid the mass of monochrome, and there where also plenty of logo hosiery on display. After all, what uniform is complete without a pair of regulation-issue socks?
