Y-3 2012 Fall/Winter Nomad Racer
It looks as though it were torn straight from the pages of Popular Mechanics 25 years in the future, but the Y-3 Nomad Racer from designer Yohji Yamamoto for adidas is very real, and coming for Fall/Winter 2012. The blue and burgundy “sneaker” (rocket boot?) utilizes a space-age blend of heat-trapping fabrics and abstract design inspirations that would make any one of the Jetsons writhe with jealousy. While you can wait for the official launch later this year, the 24th issue of Sneaker Freaker will have the full scoop.
