A new glimpse at the 2014 fall/winter Qasa High has emerged from celebrated adidas sub-brand Y-3. While previous assessments of the Qasa often drew comparisons to a ninja aesthetic, the new Qasa High is even further along those lines. The Qasa High retains its sock-like fit with the use of neoprene, but opts for bands of synthetic fabric encasing the foot rather than the cage-like upper of last season. This first glance also shows an entirely black colorway, with waxed laces, rear branding, and a leather panel on the heel to comprise several notable details. The unique boat sole also contributes to the unique silhouette of the Qasa, while providing ultimate levels of comfort. For a technical breakdown of the Qasa, head over to our previous The Sneaker Lab feature with Andy Chiu.
