We’ve seen Yohji Yamamoto and adidas get creative with materials through their Y-3 collaborative efforts before, but never quite like this as the duo reveals their brand new adidas Y-3 ZX Zip. Fresh off of the ZX wave that has given us a lot to look forward to (whether it be the ultra-wearable adidas ZX Flux or the resurrection of past runners with a wave twist). Now the Y-3 imprint is getting involved with the adidas Y-3 ZX Zip, a sneaker that broadens the ZX midsole’s ability to bolster an upper in any material ranging from mesh and leather to a fleece heel. What do you think of the latest creation from Yohji Yamamoto? Be sure to hit the click to see more and while this pair is slated to drop come Fall 2014, stay tuned for a release date in the near future.

Among the more unique embellishments we’ve seen on a sneaker was the stringy tassel set hanging off of the Super Position lowtops crafted in collaboration with Y’s by Yohji Yamamoto.  Not to be outdone by a reworked Stripes pattern of its own in Shigeki Fujishiro’s ‘Play’ edition, Yamamoto came through with an adidas Originals Stan Smith revisiting the uniquely luxurious look.  Like Fujishiro’s Stan Smith Plays, these are slated to hit the best Originals accounts on Saturday, so click in for a closer look and let us know which of these Stan Smith collabs you’re most interested in copping.

adidas Y-3 Autumn/Winter 2012-13 Preview

You might not think it when considering individual pairs of their respective outputs, but American designer John Varvatos and Japanese innovator Yohji Yamamoto have indeed run in parallel for the last decade.  Varvatos and Yamamoto were among the first well-established fashion designers brought into the fold at major sneaker brands, a move that set off a trend towards collaborative design that we’re still waiting to see reach its peak.  They’re also a perfect pair to put a caricature on each country’s sneaker leanings, Varvatos celebrating vintage American rugged good looks while Yamamoto symbolizes Japan’s technophilia with cutting edge silhouettes that look like they were made for the next Jet Set Radio game.  Yamamoto’s adidas Y-3 capsule will close out its 10th anniversary year with a bunch of his favorite designs and a heavy emphasis on black, red and blue (with orange and green thrown in for the ladies), and you can see the entire AW 2012-13 collection after the jump below.  Photos: Sneaker Freaker

adidas Y-3 Black Savage

When you think of non-traditional enclosures, examples like the Footscape’s asymmetrical lacing system, the Reebok Insta Pump Fury and Puma Disc Blaze are probably right at the top of the list.  But none of those can hold a candle to the latest release from ever-innovative Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto‘s long-running collaboration with adidas, the Y-3 Black Savage hightop.  Sporting a Tricolore sole with more teeth than your average hacksaw, this shelltoed boot-inspired design utilizes an elastic cord lockdown system like the one Yamamoto used on the Y-3 Sneak, another model we expect as part of the spring/summer 2012 collection.  If you can’t believe your eyes, click through for more proof that these are indeed a real design, and you’ll find them at top-tier retailers like Ssense.

Everybody understands the chess-vs-checkers analogy, but Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto has been playing a different game entirely with his adidas Y-3 capsule.  The decade-old collabo ranks as one of the industry’s longest running, and it’s managed to stay fresh thanks to outrageous releases like the adidas Y-3 Honja High pictured above.  While his peers are going crazy over wild animal prints after having spent much of the post-recession era offering plain tonal designs, Yamamoto proves once again that his mind is unbounded by popular trends with this dope geometrically-patterned polka dot look.  Click through so you can see some more images and if these tickle your fancy, get them straight from the Y-3 e-store.
