With the Summer season rolling around, folks can start preparing to switch out their wardrobes both on the apparel and footwear side to be best prepared for the scorching weather changes. In case you needed a new seasonal staple on the footwear side, Y-3 has just dropped its newest Hokori Sandal.

As always, Yohji Yamamoto finds a way to merge the worlds of sport and contemporary style with this offering. The Japanese designer essentially found a way to reimagine the ever classic Y-3 Qasa High — which is also slated to make a glorious return to the market shortly — into a hot weather go-to. The influence is evident through the thick and elastic straps that make up the upper as well as the exaggerated midsoles which are formed with multiple layers. In terms of branding, you can find Y-3 hits atop the white molds that are planted on the heightened parts of the heels as well as the rear of the lateral side of the midsoles. Rounding everything off down below is an outsole that is completely covered with a creamy tone.

Looking to cop a pair? Head over to HBX to pick yours up now for $265 USD.

In other news, Y-3 recently announces its Spring/Summer 2022 collection.
