October 20, 2023

In yet another groundbreaking collaboration, Adidas and renowned designer Yohji Yamamoto have unveiled their latest masterpiece – the Y-3 GENDO sneaker. Blending the timeless charm of Adidas with the avant-garde design sensibilities of Yamamoto, this creation is a testament to innovation in footwear design.

Y-3 GENDO Collection: A futuristic fusion of adidas innovation and Yohji Yamamoto's signature avant-garde design.

Design Meets Innovation

First introduced to the world at the Yohji Yamamoto runway show, the Y-3 GENDO is not just a sneaker; it's a bold exploration of the concept of negative space and elevation. At the heart of its design is a fully hollowed-out TPU plate, a creation of the Adidas innovation team initially intended as a performance midsole. This feature, paired with a luxurious leather upper, offers both an unmatched aesthetic and an innovative feel.

Two Distinct Styles

Two distinct versions of the Y-3 GENDO have been crafted. The Y-3 GENDO Superstar seamlessly fuses the futuristic midsole plate with the iconic Superstar upper. On the other hand, the Y-3 GENDO ProModel stands tall with its high-top Pro Model upper, exchanging traditional laces for a modern and expressive zip closure.

Availability Details

Mark your calendars: on October 21st, sneaker aficionados worldwide can grab their pair of the Y-3 GENDO PRO or the Y-3 GENDO SUPERSTAR. These avant-garde sneakers will be available on, on the CONFIRMED app, in Adidas stores, and at select global retailers.
