Yohji Yamamoto isn’t one to blend in with the crowd. He’s a trendsetter who is often so far ahead of the competition it would take a time machine to level the playing field. Yamamoto’s adidas Y-3 Qasa High, for example, has its closest comparison in the Nike Roshe Run, but is in its own class for several reasons. Yes, the overall shape including that sole are similar, but the Qasa ditches a minimalist lean for something a bit more elaborate, and as we see in this new black/neon colorway, something capable of a variety of blocking templates. This one highlights the almost ballet slipper construction and finishes off the palette with luxurious brown leather, a style you’ll find in stock now at top retailers like Kith.
