Yohji Yamamoto, the namesake behind the Adidas Y-3 label has always been known for his uncompromisingly modern, sophisticated, minimalist designs. In 2016, this aesthetic is all the rage, but when Y-3 first appeared on the scene, these shoes, in comparison to both athletic and traditional streetwear design, looked like they had practically come from outer space.
When you’re a trailblazer, once the work you’ve done is recognized as a trail, people eventually start to follow it. So, how can the envelope be pushed any further? In Y-3’s case, they have seized upon the outer space concept as inspiration, rather than a metaphor. Y-3 have created a shoe intended for the on-foot exploration of an alien environment.
The Noci 0003 is an entirely new silhouette which applies the Y-3 principles of high fashion and futurism to a boot. This means multiple closure options, lots of technological performance elements, breathable mesh, elastane, neoprene, tpu heel counters, poron cushioning, and EVA midsoles, combined with leather and suede, all in a thoroughly cutting edge package.
If you’re going to blaze a new trail, you’ll need the right shoes.
