Yohji Yamamoto and adidas‘s long-running Y-3 label is set to roll out its FW20 footwear lineup in the coming weeks, and one of the standout pieces is a new silhouette dubbed the Hicho. A platform take on adidas Originals‘ timeless Campus, the Hicho serves as Y-3’s court sneaker for the fall season, elevating a classic style both literally and figuratively for a bold new look.
Three colorways have been produced: a black/white, an all white and an all black, the last of which has yet to be revealed. Each strips the Campus’s blocky build back to its bare essentials by using soft leather on the entirety of the upper, even the collar and sockliner. Where the white pair is entirely tonal save for the black Y-3 stamp on its lateral heel, the black/white pair adds white stripes to its medial side for a pop of extra contrast that matches its white Y-3 hit perfectly.
