Y3 continues to be one of the most inspiring and captivating brands out, period. The mixture of a sport/fashion aesthetic, material use, unique last shapes, sole developments and overall execution sets them apart from pretty any brand out right now, in my opinion. This is what we thought shoes would look like back when we were kids doodling sneakers in our scrap books and getting told off by our slightly androgynous looking Maths teacher for not paying attention.
Throughout an overall strong collection, to me there were obvious stand-outs. From a super clean Stan Smith style, to the UFO looking sneaker in the feature image above, their unabashed approach to innovative, daring design continues to inspire the industry and keeps us all looking forward to being a part of/creating a footwear industry I think we can all be a little excited about.
See my top 8 inspiring styles from Y3’s F/W 16 collection, below.
