Y-3 Fall Winter '18 presents the Kaiwa sneaker

03 Aug 2018

The Kaiwa sneaker innovates while remaining rooted in the Adidas archive, reframing the brand's pioneering '90s principle of comfort through geometry.

Kaiwa means "conversation" in Japanese, and here symbolises the constant dialogue between Adidas and Yohji Yamamoto, around street culture , craftsmanship and technology.

Kaiwa features a sleek leather upper accented by a subtle suede heel and contrasting midsole accents that create a bold, 3D effect. These distinct "foam bubbles" wrap the foot in enhanced comfort while simultaneously fering a striking visual appeal.
