What happens when you take the lightweight minimalist look that made the Roshe Run an instant classic and combine it with the neck-breaking shroud that makes the Air Jordan XX8 so distinct? Longtime adidas collaborator Yohji Yamamoto has the answer, and it just so happens to have his name on the sole. The upcoming adidas Y-3 Qasa blends roundball and running aesthetics into a bold fall/winter 2013 release that should draw even more attention to the already popular Y-3 capusle. Whether this design, in conjunction with other movements in the industry suggest an evolutionary leap or just a wider variety of new styles on the market, Sneaker News will keep you posted.
These look like Yohji went to the bite buffet and this is what he vomited up afterward. Such a slim shoe is taken down by that sole. It's like the sole was a lot taller, and then someone squished it, causing it to burst out the sides. Normally his stuff is pretty interesting, but these just seem somewhat meh for his standards.
