Celebrating a 20-year partnership that has consistently pushed the boundaries of fashion and sportswear, adidas Originals has joined forces once again with esteemed Japanese designer, Yohji Yamamoto. The result? A fresh, yet nostalgic, reimagination of the iconic Stan Smith silhouette – the Yohji Yamamoto Stan Smith sneaker.
Over the past two decades, Yohji Yamamoto has left an undeniable mark on adidas’s heritage. This new creation pays tribute to Yamamoto’s influential role in shaping the signature style of the renowned Three Stripes brand.
This unique collaboration infuses the classic Stan Smith design with Yamamoto’s avant-garde flair. Available in two contrasting color schemes, sneaker enthusiasts can choose between a design featuring a matte black outsole set against a white leather upper and black tongue, or an all-black version highlighted with a white tongue. But the signature touch that sets these shoes apart is the portrait graphic of Yohji Yamamoto himself, elegantly debossed on the heel, cementing his lasting impact on the adidas legacy.
For fans eager to add this limited edition to their collection, the wait is almost over. Launching on October 3rd, the Yohji Yamamoto Stan Smith sneakers will be available for purchase worldwide. Sneaker aficionados can find them at Yohji Yamamoto Boutiques, adidas.com, theshopyohjiyamamoto.com, the CONFIRMED platform, in select stores, and through specialized retailers.
