To celebrate five decades of the legendary adidas Superstar, Japanese style icon Yohji Yamamoto has reunited with the Three Stripes to unveil two commemorative models. Dubbed the Y-3 Yohji Star and Y-3 Yohji Pro, both are based off the Superstar with a few avant-garde details here and there.
Dropping in low cut and high cut options, the classic adidas silhouette has been retained but the materials have been given a full upgrade. Decked out in some of the most supple leather the sneaker world has ever seen, buttery smooth suede panelling graces the lacing system for an even more luxurious look and feel.
Three Stripe branding shoots across the side panels for a classic aesthetic, while Yamamoto's iconic signature is scrawled across the laterals like an artist signing his art. The Superstar's shell toe hits the front, and to round it all off, "Y-3" is finely debossed onto the tongue, finalising the design.
Available in black and white options, the Y-3 Yohji Star and the Y-3 Yohji Pro will launch on February 20th at adidas UK as well as retailers worldwide. Let us know what you think of the shoes, and while you're here, find out how the adidas Superstar fits with our guide!
