The low-top Adidas Y-3 Harigane is available in men’s sizes. Female sneakerheads can also wear this shoe provided that they get a size that is 1.5 sizes smaller than their usual pair. 

The Adidas Yohji Yamamoto Y-3 Harigane is a high-end athleisure sneaker with a designer’s flair. It features a sock-like upper that is made of Primeknit with a leather toe cap. This shoe gets its much-needed structure from the modernized lacing system, which also subtly adds the Three Stripes through its rubberized tubes. An EVA midsole sits atop a rugged outsole to complete the experimental look that Y3 Adidas shoes are known for. Flaunt this one-of-a-kind sneaker with a pair of cropped pants, a plain shirt and a street hoodie.  

The upper of the Adidas Y-3 Harigane sneakers is made of a woven material called Primeknit. It is created using a digital knitting technology to provide a comfortable, sock-like fit. This kick also uses the Poron sockliner for lasting cushioning. 

With Yohji Yamamoto’s high-fashion designs and Adidas’ athletic features came the Adidas Y-3 Harigane sneakers. Launched in 2003, the Y-3 is a collection of avant-garde yet casual shoes, clothes and accessories created by the Japanese fashion designer for Adidas. The name Y-3 is a fusion of Yamamoto’s Y and Adidas’ unmistakable 3 Stripes logo.  

Aside from the Y-3 Adidas Harigane sneakers, a variety of other models have been released, including the Qasa, Kaiwa, Ekika, and Kozoko, to name a few. The German brand has been continually releasing futuristic designed Adidas x Y3 lineups, and there seems to be no stopping them in the next few years. 

  • The Adidas Y-3 Harigane was launched in February 2018.
