Sidewinder stitching differentiates the upcoming Y’s by Yohji Yamamoto x adidas Originals Stan Smith. Following in the footsteps of past joint projects with adidas, Y’s by Yohji Yamamoto uses a black, white and grey color combination on the iconic silhouette that has been a headliner of the year to date. The adidas Stan Smith has received many makeovers so far in 2014, but this upper end take uses premium leathers and a first time design on the Three Stripes to set itself apart. Woven into the black upper, grey threads are left hanging and not tied off to create a unique appearance, while giant Y’s tag the tongues for personalization. Tell us if these are a good look in the comment box, and watch for them to release March 15th at select adidas Originals retailers.

Laterally laced, the Nike Air Footscape Motion is seen in a new Base Grey/Light Crimson style code.

Black accents up top and a white sole add contrast to this Summer shoe, which is available now at Nike.

Kevin Durant’s game embodies his Easy Money Sniper nickname with an even-keel flow on the floor that features a quick burst of flash. The latest rendition of his sixth signature sneaker does the same, with a subtle base and fiery pops to create the Nike KD VI “Neutral”.
