Designer, Chanel Shi created this super interesting, mutable Y-3 concept as a final project for her shoe design class back in 2015. What’s so interesting about this project is that fact that you can mutate to shoe into a couple different, striking appearances.
“I designed Chanel Shi Sneaker, which not only presents the one of kind Y3 aesthetic, but also conveys a sense of movement through its crust-like upper shell. Chanel Shi Sneaker is mutable; therefore, one can take the shell off, resulting in a simpler look, styled with wide elasticized crisscross bands. After I posted my design on WEAR, Japan’s leading fashion app, which is widely beloved by thousands of users worldwide, it was ranked No.2 in November 2015.” – Chanel Shi
