adidas and Yohji Yamamoto have a longstanding relationship having launched the collaborative Y-3 sub-label back in 2002, and ever since it has gone on to reinterpret many of the Three Stripes’ iconic designs — such as the Superstar most recently and plenty of 4D runners — but now, it returns to the UltraBOOST for 2022.

Y-3’s UltraBOOST 22 comes in “Black/Core White/Chalk Pearl,” combining a sock-like laceless Primeknit upper with technical rubber detailing for an aesthetic seldom found on this silhouette. The result is something akin to the legendary Y-3 Qasa, as elastic straps wrap over the throat of the shoe and down the mid-panels to create a snug fit.

Also similar to the Qasa is the UltraBOOST 22’s contrasting heel tab which is detailed with Y-3 branding, sitting atop of the UltraBOOST-branded heel clip. Rounding out the rear is a fabric pull tab that extends from the collar, while a full-length BOOST midsole fitted with a Continental rubber outsole in a light gum hue rounds out the pair.

adidas Y-3’s UltraBOOST 22 “Black/Core White/Chalk Pearl” costs £230 GBP (approx. $310 USD) and is available to purchase now from adidas’ website.
