In July 2019, Y-3 gave adidasFYW S-97 a Yohji Yamamoto-approved makeover, and now the avant-garde sportswear division has upgraded the silhouette by turning it into a high top basketball-esque shoe.

Dubbed the Y-3 FYW S-97 II, the pair comes in “Black/Footwear White” and “Chalk White/Bold Blue/Ecru Tint,” and presents plenty of changes aside from the obvious newly-added height. Whereas the inaugural pair was made from Primeknit, overlayed with leather and suede detailing all around, the S-97 II is made entirely from a canvas textile and suede base.

Elsewhere, the sneaker is fitted with a foam-cushioned heel collar, and is fully lined in leather. The use of leather continues to decorate the three stripes on the sides. Rounding out both pairs is the Y-3 branding on the tongue, and its signature FYW S-97 sole unit.

This is the same sole unit found on the low top pair, meaning it delivers a full-length serving of BOOST and is caged in TPU housing.

Take a look at the Y-3 FYW S-97 II in “Black/Footwear White” and “Chalk White/Bold Blue/Ecru Tint” above, and pick up both pairs now from stockists including Overkill. The sneaker retails for €349 EUR (approx. $415 USD).

In case you missed it, Sean Wotherspoon has teased his next adidas collaboration, this time taking on the ZX 8000.
