Fresh off of unveiling its full collection for the FW21 season, the Y-3 family has officially unveiled two of its newest footwear silhouettes — the Y-3 QISAN COZYand Y-3 AJATU RUN. Both propositions are sleek and fashion forward in their visual composition and feature functional design elemets.
Kicking things off is the Y-3 QISAN COZY which was inspired by one of Yohji Yamamoto‘s most recognizable models in the Y-3 QASA. Uppers are manufactured with a slip-on neoprene upper that is paired up with suede arches that are stationed at the mid-foot and synthetic overlays that grace the toe boxes. Printed over the bridge of the foot is Y-3 branding in crisp white and the heels are feature a rubber mold that’s backdropped in gray. Midsoles are semi-chunky in stature and come complemented with a black mold that starts at the toe box and runs about 3/4 of its length. Additionally, exaggerated tabs are slapped onto the tongues and the heels.
The Y-3 AJATU RUN — while similar in style — arrives with a slightly more understated look. Base layers are crafted with a blend of premium suede, woven textiles and mesh materials and is topped with rubber and neoprene detailing. Y-3 branded hits poke out through the tongues and heels and a black wire wraps from the collars to the heels. The white and black sole units match that of the Y-3 QISAN in both color and size.
Both models are slated to drop on on August 5 via Y-3, Confirmed, in store and select retailers.
