Y-3 QASA SHELL | Aurélien Longo

Y-3 has been kicking out some of it’s most dynamic, exciting designs as of late. They’re use of unique silhouettes and design detailing is really second to none. The Star Wars inspired, Y-3 QASA SHELL’s by designer Aurélien Longo are a perfect example of the type of thought provoking design that’s really propelled the brand into a class of it’s own.

“For this shoe, I took inspiration on the Star-Wars storm-troopers uniform, thinking about a stretchable neoprene booty on which are individually stitched different leather panels. The shoe features the classic lines of one of the most iconic adidas shoes : the Superstar and comes with the very impactful Qasa tubular tooling.” – Aurélien

The simple, clean additions of leather panels stitched onto the neoprene bootie creates a beautiful play of materials, and gives the shoe a very storm-trooper feel. With the addition of the chunky, techy looking Tubular tooling, the shoe really has a beautifully clean look, aided by an interesting mix of proportions.
