Following the black and white colorway, Y-3 unveils its Kaiwa silhouette in a bold yellow shade. Retaining the previous iteration’s hefty sole and expansive upper, this version sports bright yellow on both the upper and midsole, with a clean white midsole to balance the overwhelmingly bright hue. The heel panel and tongue boast off-white hues and metallic silver detailing on the vamp for even bright visual appeal, while a black Y-3 patch on the tongue and ties in with black branding on the heel to ensure the shoe isn’t too off-kilter. Raw seaming and panels appear throughout, creating a sneaker that’s as detailed as it is sunny.
Pre-order a pair of the bold runners from Saks Fifth Avenue for $400 USD.
Most recently, Y-3’s Fall/Winter 2018 campaign showcased the brand’s dedication to Japanese heritage.
