Full-On Footwear: The adidas Y-3 FYW S-97 IIRelease: 1 October 2020
The output from the adidas Y-3 sub-label has ranged from the low-key to absolutely audacious. This new FYW S-97 II falls into the latter category, both by name and nature.
A fashionista’s dream of what sartorially-minded basketball shoes would look like, this enveloping design is densely layered in rather anachronistic canvas and suede panels, with hi-tech BOOST soles. There are plenty of eyelets to adjust the fit, and they stop short of the massive Y-3 tongue label – nobody’s mistaking who’s behind these.
