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.
