Y-3 put their own spin on adidas’ iconic Stan Smith silhouette. The Y-3 Stan Zip is the latest offering from the long standing relationship between designer Yohji Yamamoto and world famous sports brand adidas. Taking the simplistic shape, Y-3 have managed to add their own angle to the shoe without throwing away the simple design that made the Stan Smith such a popular tennis and fashion shoe.
The one piece upper of the Stan Zip is reminiscent of the same stretchy nylon seen on the Qasa, with a rubber heel tab also lending itself from the ninja-style silhouette. The sock fit that the nylon gives makes for an extremely comfortable fit to the wearer. Perhaps the most stand out feature of the Stan Zip is the dual zip tongue that adds a modern twist to the Stan Smith model. Zipping both zips down reveals embossed Yohji Yamamoto branding at the tongue, with further branding found embossed to the zip.
