Adidas Y-3 Ekika Style
The upper of the Adidas x Y3 Ekika by Yohji Yamamoto sees a mix of mesh, suede, and synthetic leather in irregular panels. A jigsaw stitching accentuates the overall design of these kicks. The EVA rubber sole with a skeletal shape takes inspiration from the now-defunct Adidas SLVR collection. It is chunky yet lightweight with a hollowed out section in the middle and an accentuated arch. Men may wear these Y-3 Adidas sneakers with a quilted jacket, plain tee, and cotton-blend trousers for a casual look. Ladies may pair these kicks with jogger pants for a sporty look.
These Adidas Y3 sneakers feature the Poron performance cushioning footbed that is famous for providing long-lasting comfort and shock-absorption. It also comes with a lace-up closure at the front and a “Y-3” branding on the tongue.

Over the years, several Y-3 Adidas kicks have been released which captured the hearts of many sneakerheads.
