Y-3 introduces a bold new silhouette, the Shiku Run, which will be available to shoppers on August 25. The brand’s latest release comes from the Fall/Winter 2020 collection.
The Shiku Run is characteristic of Y-3’s collaboration between Designer and Creative Director Yohji Yamamoto and sportswear label Adidas. Yamamoto’s avant-garde style is present in the footwear’s transparent mesh build, suede accents, leather details, and wrap around cord system. The sneaker also aligns with Adidas’ performance-driven design. Taking inspiration from the brand’s line of performance running shoes, the midsole of the Shiku Run is made with ethylene vinyl-acetate (EVA) foam, a tremendously elastic, but tough material that provides enhanced lightweight cushioning. The exterior of the shoe also indicates a high level of performance, featuring a rubber outsole for superior grip and, of course, the symbolic three-stripes branding.
Y-3’s design philosophy stretches beyond construction to the colorways of the Shiku Run. The first, which consists of black, core white, and ecru, are consistent with Yamomoto’s traditionally muted palette. The second colorway, core white and black, is thoughtfully accented by a pop of a red heel. Lastly, a black mesh upper with grey suede accents is invigorated by hints of red and “signal cyan.”
The Y-3 Shiku Run will be available online from August 25.END
