First hitting our radar earlier this year as part of Y-3’s 2017 fall/winter footwear collection, Yohji Yamamoto’s creative spin on the Stan Smith recently resurfaced in this Stan Zip “Triple Black” rework. Acknowledged as adidas’s best selling sneaker of all time, this imaginative riff on the classic Stan Smith features a two-piece upper with a heat-pressed heel tab and removable zipper eyestay. While minimalist in design, the Japanese design maverick uncovered a means to push creativity forward, while keeping its artistic integrity firmly intact. Retailing for $320 USD, look for the new design at such retailers as Packer Shoes.
