The Sneaker Lab: Breaking Down the Y-3 Qasa | Andy Chiu

My dude Andy Chiu decided to drop some knowledge on these Hypebeasts. A big part of the reason I started ConceptKicks was to try and educate the average consumer/sneakerhead about the people and hard work that goes into creating their beloved sneakers. In what I can only hope becomes a regular occurrence, it’s great to see Andy taking this mind state to such a large platform like Hypebeast and giving a different, deeper insight then the usual superficial information that’s provided by the brands themselves in this ‘The Sneaker Lab’ series.

Check out Andy’s in-depth article, where he touches on the aesthetic values, construction methods used, FOB (Freight On Board) costs of the shoe and much more, here.
