adidas Originals – Y-3 Qasa High ‘Triple Black’
The partnership between Germany’s adidas Originals and Japanese master designer Yohji Yamamoto has unearthed some innovative silhouettes over the recent years. Perhaps the most instantly recognisable of those is the Y3 Qasa High concept. It combines an innovative approach to materials with a reinvention of athletic principles to create a progressive and new template for footwear design.
The model now gets executed in a simple yet effective ‘Triple Black’ colourway. With an upper constructed from a combination of neoprene and elastic bondage through the upper, tied together with waxed laces and matt leather panelling at the front and rear. This sits on top of a built up rubber sole-unit. It’s finished with tonal branding to the rear and a moulded plastic lacing system borrowed from adidas’ classic ZX series.
The adidas Y3 Qasa High is now available from select worldwide retailers including END Clothing.
