adidasY-3 collaboration with Yohji Yamamoto is known for pushing the boundaries of technical fashion, but for its latest footwear release the brand pays tribute to the natural world. The “Moss Green” colorway of its Y-3 Ryo sneaker ties in with the brand’s fall/winter 2017 collection, which brings natural and technological influences together.

The shoe itself is a trail sneaker that comes with a sock-like fit in mesh, a quick leather strap closure and welded TPU details on the tongue and heel cap. While the sneaker’s earthy colorway of tonal greens is the natural element, the technical influence is apparent in both its aesthetic and the use of fabrics such as a water-repellant textile vamp lining, Poron performance cushioning on the sock liner and an outsole of EVA and rubber. The Y-3 Ryo sneaker in “Moss Green” is available now from retailers including Portugal’s Wrong Weather, with the price set at $313 USD.

This year also marks 15 years since Yohji Yamamoto and adidas first began working together — a milestone that has been commemorated with a limited-edition T-shirt.
