adidas and Y-3 Reconnect for a Revitalized Version of Their Gazelle Silhouette
Coming in a black and a white colorway with exposed stitching.
Over recent times, the duo has connected on several footwear collaborations such as the Qasa High and 4D Halo Runner. But, aside from running shoe designs, adidas and Y-3 also dropped the first editions of the Gazelle earlier this year with a large sole unit and Y-3 branding. Now, the new versions of the sneaker include revitalized features which include new mudguards and exposed stitching.
Suede takes over the upper and mudguard, while a soft leather patch is also used on the heel alongside raw exposed stitching. Furthermore, debossed Y-3 branding can be spotted on the heel, while Yohji Yamamoto is added in grey foil lettering on the lateral side.
The shoe is switched up further through a fresh take on the Three Stripe branding — this is offered through multi-layered paneling and even more exposed stitching. Excess string is also integrated into the design, with the added detailing draping down the shoe’s upper.
You can take a closer look at the new Y-3 x adidas Gazelle collaboration above and it is available now with select retailers such as Aphrodite for approximately $270 USD.
