This Autumn/Winter 2010-11, Y-3 has produced a range of METALLIC NEO TECH footwear pieces.
Shiny metallic silver is the main colour used within this capsule footwear collection alongside accents of neon red and violet. These iconic leather sneakers and high heels feature detailed mesh overlays and debuted on the runway during the Y-3 fashion show in New York.
The collection marries the ideas Tradition & Futurism with an element of modernity that is strongly highlighted by this seasonвЂ™s footwear. Y-3 has always melded technology with tradition, and never has this been more apparent.
The menвЂ™s Light Runner, Moto High and Neo Tech styles have shifted away from the classic trainer. Each model provides superior comfort due to the adidas adiPRENE technology. An adiPRENE+ insert in the forefoot area stands for elastic cushioning, while the adiPRENE heel insert is shock absorbent.
The Torsion Heel and the Cushion Wedge bring a new aesthetic for the Y-3 woman. Both high heels combine sporty details with premium materials, making these styles very distinctive and uniquely Y-3. Both models make use of the adiPRENE technology for maximum comfort. In addition the Torsion Heel features a lightweight arch support, the вЂTorsion SystemвЂ™ developed by adidas. It allows the forefoot and rear foot to move independently and adds more stability and flexibility.
The Metallic Neo Tech range is yet another confident display of the collaborative efforts of adidas and Yohji Yamamoto.
