Y-3 FYW S-97

Y-3 Fall/Winter 2019 finds a new perspective on the collaboration between adidas and Yohji Yamamoto. With this collection, the German athletics icon and the Japanese designer look directly to each other’s archives to reinterpret their most iconic designs. And Yamamoto’s modern vision of the adidas archive yields this season’s most progressive new footwear.

With the new Y-3 FYW S-97, Yamamoto reimagines a landmark adidas style, the Salvation, which, at its launch in 1997, was one of the first running silhouettes to utilize Feet You Wear technology. The Y-3 FYW S-97 presents this archival shoe with contemporary adidas technologies, including Primeknit, which wraps the foot in an engineered fit, and BOOST™, adidas’ most responsive cushioning which delivers incredible energy return.

The new design boasts a flexible, multi-layer upper that is embroidered with the Yohji Yamamoto signature and features suede and leather details at its heel and forefoot. The shoe’s unique black-and-white midsole, a direct reference to the Salvation, contains cut-outs that offer a glimpse of the powerful BOOST™ technology contained within.

Available in two color combinations, white/black/off-white and black/white, the Y-3 FYW S-97 will drop on July 18th at Y-3 flagship stores, Y-3.com, and select retailers worldwide.
