Get ready, sneakerheads, because the adidas Y-3 Gendo line is about to make its grand entrance. This collection, first showcased at Yohji Yamamoto’s runway show, is all about embracing negative space and elevation. Yamamoto’s genius lies in his choice to reinvent two of adidas’ most iconic silhouettes, the Superstar and Pro Model, in his own unique way. While these models already embody the white/black negative concept, the renowned Japanese designer takes it a step further by infusing them with heritage through a brilliantly executed feat of function—the hollowed out TPU midsole that perfectly fits into the negative space concept.
Drawing inspiration from the adidas innovation team, Yohji Yamamoto applies his sleek midsole design to the superbly crafted uppers of both the Superstar and Pro Model. In true Y-3 fashion, you’ll find Yohji’s insignia etched into the TPU midsole, along with high-end leathers, zipper enclosures (exclusive to the Pro Model), and a rubber “shelltoe” cap extending downward to the bottoms.
Mark your calendars because adidas Y-3 has confirmed that the Y-3 Gendo line will be dropping on October 21st at Y-3 locations and adidas Confirmed. However, if you can’t wait that long, the Superstar colorways are already available for purchase directly from adidas. Prepare to shell out $800 per pair, because exclusivity comes at a price.
