Yohji Yamamoto and adidas‘s long-running Y-3 hit the Parisian runway to show off a new range of progressive sportswear designs. Accompanying the collection was an array of new sneaker silhouettes, as adventurous as the clothing itself.

In line with the recent Y-3 Kusari, Fall/Winter 2018 showcases more unconventional runners and lifestyle sneakers. Bulbous protrusions, chunky rubber midsoles and runaway stitching feature throughout the selection, with all sneakers executed in monochrome colors. Y-3 branding, bolstered by Yohji’s signature, accentuates the sneakers as classic adidas functionality — like Primeknit and BOOST — features throughout.

Take a look at the shoes in action at the Y-3 show below. Meanwhile, more conventional adidas sneakers, like the EQT Support RF Primeknit and PureBOOST DPR are receiving updated colorways.
