Adidas x Y-3’s 4D Sneakers Look Like They’re From the Future

When Adidas first announced in 2017 its groundbreaking Futurecraft 4D model featuring 4D-printed technology prominent on the midsole back, it instantly became one of the most talked about innovations in the footwear market.

With that, it was no surprise that the brand’s high-end Adidas Y-3 label by founder Yohji Yamamoto got to work with the game-changing technology. Last year he launched his first-ever Y-3 4D Runner, fulfilling his reputation for pushing the boundaries in apparel and footwear aesthetics. Now, it appears that the avant-garde designer has another version coming this week.

Picking up from where the 2018 mid-top version left off, the upcoming model is constructed with a lower cut for its double-layer Primeknit upper done in an eye-catching bold red makeup. The red hue continues onto the laces, featuring an intricate double weave aesthetic. The kicks keep branding to a minimum, with 3-Stripes running horizontally down the mid-foot with Yamamoto’s signature underneath.
