Typical of Yohji Yamamoto‘s collaboration with adidas, this new take presents a Primeknit sock interior that’s been lined in a black netting sitting over the top of the shoe’s upper. From there, white threads act as the shoe’s Three Stripe branding — harking back to various shoes from the early and mid-2000s that used such thread — and they have also been threaded into the 4D sole unit for a contemporary finish.
That sole unit is finished in a creamy white hue and combines the latest adidas 4D technology with a cleat-style outsole, packed with traction which is much-needed on a running-derived pair like the Halo. More white appears on the toe box underneath the net shield and on the rear bumper, with the latter also sporting a black webbing heel tab for extra slip-on slip-off ease.
Rounding out the pair is bold white Y-3 branding on the tongue and the box it comes in which offers dust bags and an extra set of black laces. Take a look at the Y-3 Runner adidas 4D Halo in “Core Black/White/Red” above and pick up a pair now from retailers such as Offspring for $528 USD.
