Y-3 has been one of my favorite brands for a while now, and designer Aurélien Longo has played a major part in that. The Y-3 LT MID is beautiful combination of adidas’ heritage, but with a focus on creating a sleeker silhouette and overall bringing the shoe forward and giving it that distinct Y-3 feel. The curvy upper shapes and proportions are absolutely spot on, and the puffs at the collar also create a super interesting shape at the back of the shoe.
“For this Y-3 FW/15 collection, my concept was to focus on the silhouettes. This LT mid is an evolution on the Y-3 Laver with a much higher and sleeker shape, combined with some classic details like the original Laver derby construction and the GrandSlam Hi 1 padded heel piece.” – Aurélien
