Adidas and Yohji Yamamoto have once again joined forces to introduce their most groundbreaking creation to date – the Y-3 GENDO sneakers. This progressive footwear masterpiece takes the concept of a fully hollowed TPU plate, originally designed by the adidas innovation team for performance purposes, and fuses it with the iconic Superstar model. The result is a dynamic, expressive form that represents the ultimate convergence of Yohji Yamamoto’s avant-garde design and the Three Stripes’ signature aesthetic.

Meanwhile, the Y-3 GENDO ProModel boasts a high-top Pro Model upper and departs from conventional lacing with an expressive zip closure, taking the concept of sneaker design to new heights.
