adidas and Yohji Yamamoto return for the latest release of Y-3’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection. Reimagining the iconography of traditional sporting disciplines and elevating the aesthetics of performance-inspired design, the brand presents its bold new take on a running silhouette: the Y-3 Shiku Run.
Seeking to refine the essential essence of sport, the brand new Y-3 Shiku Run silhouette merges Yohji Yamamoto’s avant-garde aesthetics with adidas’ performance driven design sensibility. Crafted with premium materials, the Y-3 Shiku Run features a double layer mesh upper with suede accents and leather details.
The visually striking upper is then completed with a wrap-around chord system and 3-Stripes branding which peaks through the transparent mesh build. Taking inspiration from adidas’ collection of performance running silhouettes, the midsole employs EVA foam for enhanced lightweight cushioning and a rubber outsole for superior road grip.
Further accentuating the brand’s elevated design ethos, the Y-3 Shiku Run launches in three distinct colourways. The first colourway is made up in black, core white, and ecru, celebrating Yohji Yamamoto’s historically muted palette.
Going beyond monochrome, the second colourway features a majoritively core white and black makeup, with a subtle-yet-striking hit of red on the heel.
