Yohji Yamamoto rejoins longtime collaborator adidas for a separate collaboration outside of Y3. For Yamamoto’s mainline Pour Homme collection, the Japanese designer has recruited the German sportswear giant to craft a new sneaker silhouette, dubbed the "Mid-Belt." Crafted from canvas and cow leather, the mix-material sneaker sports no less than three methods of closure, including black laces, a rear zipper and three buckled forefoot straps as a nod to the Three Stripes. Offered in red and black, the shoe also features a variety of contrasting "YOHJI YAMAMOTO" embroidery around the upper.
The Mid-Belt sneakers are currently available at Japanese Yamamoto stockists for ¥54,000 JPY (approximately $490 USD), keep an eye out to see if they arrive on the Japanese designer’s web store as well.
