Yohji Yamamoto & Adidas Go In On A Digitally-Printed Pair Of 4D Running Shoes

Since launching the adidas Y-3 label—a collaborative partnership between the German activewear outfit and legendary Japanese designer and streetwear icon, Yohji Yamamoto—the joint effort has produced a wide array of top-shelf sports-focused offerings, from tote bags and bucket hats, to the official jersey designs for professional sports teams. And the latest Y-3 release maintains the elite sub-brand’s proclivity for performance-driven gear, with the all-new Y-3 Runner 4D IO running shoes.

Built atop adidas’ cutting-edge, digitally-printed, ultra-high-energy-returning, liquid-resin 4D midsoles, the Y-3 Runner 4D IO features a translucent set of pull-tab-equipped uppers encompassing the brand’s Primeknit sock configuration, which can be removed and swapped out via a hook-and-loop construction setup. The bottom of the shoes are also lined with an advanced outsole tread pattern that was created through the use of computer-generated data. Offered in black and white or black and khaki, the adidas x Yohji Yamamoto Y-3 Runner 4D IO are available now, with pricing set at approximately $525.
