Y-3 QASA SHELL
New upper on an existing sole
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.
The shoe has been displayed twice on the catwalk of the Yohji Yamamoto Y-3 FW14 fashion-show in the Paris fashion-week.
Hypebeast dedicated an article on this shoe.
Highsnobiety offered a closer look with a film (see below).
