The “Triple Black” rendition of the Y-3 Qasa High has long been the most popular footwear silhouette from adidas and Yohji Yamamoto’s collaborative lineup and now the high-top kicks are getting a slight modification for 2017. Like previous versions of the release, the kicks come decked out in black neoprene, elastic, and leather and couple their slip-on upper with a thick Tubular-inspired sole unit. Now, however, the design employs a striped motif along its toe box, echoing the look of a similar Tubular Doom Primeknit that debuted in the latter part of 2016. Whereas those Tubulars employed their white stripes in a honeycomb motif, though, this Qasa opts for diamonds instead.
Fans can find these kicks now via the UK’s Aphrodite.
