Y-3 Yohji Pro & Yohi Star

01 Jun 2020

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic adidas Superstar, Y-3 pays homage to the sneakers ground breaking design. The Superstar has always been important to Y-3, standing out as one Yohji Yamamoto’s favourite silhouettes. To celebrate an icon, Y-3 has crafted two bold new Superstar-inspired silhouettes, one low-cut, the Y-3 YOHJI STAR, and one high-top, the Y-3 YOHJI PRO, each one bringing out the best of the original in a distinctly Y-3 manner.

Experimenting with form and shape, the Y-3 YOHJI STAR and the Y-3 YOHJI PRO re-imagine the iconic Superstar sneaker with a revolutionary new tooling system. Moving from back to front, both the high-top and low-cut silhouettes keep the heel proportions of the original whilst applying an exaggerated aesthetic to the forefoot to convey an accentuated sense of bulkiness. Meanwhile, the iconic shell-toe remains a prominent feature on both silhouettes and is seamlessly complemented by the presence of a Y-3 logo on the tongue and Yohji’s signature across the midsole and upper. Staying true to the Superstar’s DNA, the two styles are available in two distinct colourways. First, a tonal black colourway which showcases Yohji’s often muted palette. Next, an all-white colourway with an ecru upper, corewhite shell-toe, white stripes and contrasting black eyestays.
