Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto is adidas’ longest running collaborator.  His Y-3 capsule has been going for over eleven years now and it’s responsible for some of the more innovative lifestyle designs on the market over that time.  Now Y-3 welcomes its own guest designer, as the graphic artist Peter Saville comes on board to create the prints and typography used for the hilariously named adidas Y-3 ‘Meaningless Excitement’ collection.  This spring/summer 2014 set includes the range of standouts we’ve come to expect from Yamamoto, but these rival even Jeremy Scott’s craziest work thanks to a couple of sandals set on some seriously substantial wedges.  Click through for the whole capsule and let us knwo if you’ll be showing any of these off when they drop next year.

The adidas Y-3 line is probably their single collection that is furthest out of the eye of the “sneakerhead” crowd. That sort of changed with the arrival of the adidas Y-3 Qasa, a sleek silhouette that nails the whole urban-ninja vibe. Shown here is the next iteration of the shoes: the adidas Y-3 Qasa Racer. This time the pliable sneaker gets outfitted with a sort of roll-cage on its upper for just a bit more support. Continue reading to get a glimpse of the first couple colorways and keep in mind these won’t be in stores till Spring/Summer 2014.

adidas Y-3 Nomad Star Low

adidas y 3 nomad star low 1 570x379 adidas Y 3 Nomad Star Low

Yohji Yamamoto’s Nomad Star midtop made a polarizing splash when we recently previewed its unique shroud, but what kind of response can we predict from this more traditional lowtop version?  Right off the bat, the shelltoed lowcut look should be more familiar on this new adidas Y-3 Nomad Star Low, though it’s far more likely to be connected to the iconic Superstar than any of the forgettable Pro Model performance lowtops that released over the past few years.  And while these won’t break necks in quite the same way as the bagged-up midtop, smartly placed lines ensure these subdued colorways will indeed turn heads.  Check them out after the jump below, let us know which of the Y-3 Nomad Stars looks better to you and stick with Sneaker News for word on US availability.  via Sneaker Freaker

Before Jeremy Scott became the posterchild for adidas Originals’ bold fashion sense, Japanese visionairy Yohji Yamamoto was breaking necks with Euro-inspired lifestyle sneaker designs to which the rest of the lifestyle sneaker market has still to catch.  It’s hard to argue he’s anywhere but the peak of his powers when you see this newest adidas Y-3 design, one of many Yamamoto designs featuring nontraditional lacing.  But we’ve never seen the laces and basically the entire upper of a shoe covered in a shroud like the new Y-3 Nomad Star, a mix of velvety suede and grainy leather that transforms the classic Pro Model midtop silhouette beyond recognition.  Burgundy and black pairs are coming up soon so check out both pairs after the jump below and let us know which one you’re more likely to grab.  via Sneaker Freaker

Never one to settle for ‘standard’, Japanese visionary designer Yohji Yamamoto has once again remixed some of today’s common aesthetics and come up with something wildly unique.  The latest in a long line of avant garde looks from the adidas x Y-3 sublabel, the Y-3 Kubo Mid is a fitting name even if this is more of a hightop, since everything about its design is exaggerated.  These joints are crafted in a stretchy mesh that meets a Superstar-like shell toe and rests on a sole so crazy it’d make Reebok ZigTechs do a double-take.  The only thing calm about these is their black and white color scheme, which seems to invite you to come up with even crazier clothing combos with which to pair them.  Click through to see more, let us know what you think and grab a pair today direct from Y-3.

adidas Y-3 Hayworth II Mid – Black – Orange

adidas y 3 hayworth 2 mid black 05 adidas Y 3 Hayworth II Mid   Black   Orange

The Yohji Yamamoto x adidas Y-3 collaboration is among the industry’s longest running and most prolific, not to mention most expensive on a pair to pair basis.  But it can definitely warrant the steep price tag when you can couple premium construction with standout style, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with this new pair of Y-3 Hayworth II Mids.  Really more of a hightop, the second Hayworth is done in a tonal black look with and orange liner that might bring Halloween to mind, with the distinct heel counter on this pair suggesting you should go as a 1960s recording artist.  Then again, it’s just as easy to match these with a pair of selvage denim and be on your way, so click through for a better look and grab yours direct from Y-3.
