Yohji Yamamoto and adidas‘s Y-3 has unveiled its new Raito Racer silhouette. The Spring/Summer 2019 model is named after the Japanese word for “light” (“Raito”) and fulfills its title by being the lightest and fastest style in the Y-3 archive.

The Raito Racer debuts in two versions of black and white knit uppers, both featuring a 360-degree, single panel Primeknit upper set atop an I-5923 BOOST midsole. The design boasts a unique ribbed design upper, a translucent lace system support overlay, and a wide-set lace cord loop near the ankle. The streamlined design is completed with a translucent, pebbled outsole design with micro-studded traction.

The Y-3 Raito Racer releases on December 13 for $330 USD at y-3.com, Y-3 flagship stores and select retailers worldwide.
