Yamamoto masters the art of merging maximalism and minimalism at the same time. As you admire the shoes, you notice they’re packed with intriguing details. The mesh stands out as an obvious one; we love the way it layers with solids and plays with optics in black and white. On the more subtle side – notice the the columns of three dots for the Y-3 brand and its nod the to Adidas’s famous three stripes. There’s also a Y stitched into the black band near the tongue closure.
The thin laces are a nice touch too. In contrast to a typical sneaker, the laces on the Adidas Y-3 Laver high bring to mind the thinness you’d find in the laces of a dressier shoe – fitting for such an upscale brand and high-end designer.
