Yohji Yamamoto has a penchant for pushing the boundaries of where lifestyle footwear can go by often crafting silhouettes that are both avant-garde and fashion-forward. The Japanese fashion designer has a unique ability to merge the worlds of contemporary design with modern footwear technology, and he’s done exactly that with his all-new adidas Y-3 IDOSO BOOST.

From a palette standpoint, the shoes are fashioned with understated, neutral tones, but the beauty here is in the details of its construction. A handful of materials are called upon to assist in forming its upper such as a smooth leather which forms the overlays around the toes, synthetics which makes up the side paneling and tongues as well as a breathable mesh which is found on the quarter panel’s windows and houses the Three Stripes branding. Tonal adidas Y-3 branding is raise on the tongues in both small and oversized font, and the laces start out on the toe boxes in unique fashion as the first set of lace loops are slightly skewed outwardly. The most interesting component of these kicks is arguably the sole unit as a bulbous, half-sphere is positioned on the heels. It comes branded with a large Y-3 hit and exposes a sliver of BOOST cushioning towards the top.

Parties interested in copping can find these available now via HBX for $503 USD.
