Y-3 'Saikou Primeknit’ sneakers – Launching 26th January

25 Jan 2018

Seen initially at Paris Fashion week for Spring Summer '18, the latest release from Y-3 is the 'Saikou Primeknit' sneaker. Presented in Black, with contrasting Y-3 branding, the Y-3s cleverly fuse the creative vision of Yohji Yamamoto, with the technical flair of Adidas.

Borne from a collaborative effort between Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto and sportswear giant Adidas, Y-3 is a brand that consistently creates a distinctive sports luxe aesthetic, that is the perfect example of intelligent, modern design. Y-3 achieves this through a clean, balanced blend of technical detailing and signature minimal finishes.

The Saikou Primeknit sneakers are a strong example of Y-3's efforts.

Built from a mixture of black cotton and leather, the sneakers feature a sock style, knitted upper, with a foam rubber sole and signature Y-3 branding. Boost™ technology delivers a cushioned, bounce-back experience, while asymmetric textile panels off set the balance and add dimension. Saikou's sleek design is brought together with contrasting Y-3 branding, the tongue finished with Y-3's iconic three stripes.
