Y-3 exists at the apex of sport and high fashion, if not having a seminal role in the modern movement. One sport though that hasn’t been consistently tapped by Yohji Yamamoto is basketball – a conundrum resolved here with the release of the Hayworth Guard High silhouette for Fall/Winter 2015. Here we find the brand executing a rather convincing take on traditional models, offering the Hayworth Guard High with a shin-high air net mesh upper and hits of leather and suede at the collar and toe box respectively. These features rest atop a sturdy rubber outsole, which is also cleverly stabilized by TPU flanks. Finished off by waxed laces, pick up this strong offering from Y-3 at retailers such as KITH now.
