Yohji Yamamoto Puts His Spin on the Dr. Martens Chelsea Boot
The iconic Japanese designer steps away from his usual adidas collabs for another footwear offering.
Y-3 may be the most high-profile of Yohji Yamamoto’s footwear releases, but the iconic Japanese designer doesn’t just collaborate with adidas: he’s been teaming up with Dr. Martens for years now. This season, a special edition Chelsea-style boot is the latest fruit of Yamamoto’s partnership with the British stalwart. Draped in black leather, the design — part of Yamamoto’s Y’s diffusion label — features the usual elasticized gussets and air sole unit while co-branded pull tabs are accompanied by the addition of a zipper at the heel for easy entry.
Martens and Yamamoto fans alike can find the kicks now at select Y’s stockists while supplies last.
