Space vagabond? Cowboy circa 2200? If you recall from our coverage of Yohji Yamamoto’s Y-3 Fall/Winter 2010 Runway at New York Fashion Week earlier this year, you would perhaps remember a bundle of clandestinely hooded figures in drapes and volumes rushing out from a dark void enlightened with a laser light installation by United Visual Artists. So, what do these vagabonds who struggle to break free from constrains of society, of form an preconceptions run in? In Yamamoto’s mind– something silver, something bright, something with support and cushioning. So, a pair of high-tech sneakers paired with silver letaher and bright neon red and purple shades it is.
For the Fall/Winter 2010 footwear collection, Y-3’s Metallic Neo Tech pack consists of three styles for men– the Light Runner, the Moto High and the Neo Tech. All three models come with adiPRENE technology which promises both cushioning and support. As for the girls on the run, there are two sneaker heels– the Torison Heel and the Cushion Wedge, which promises both confidence from height and also comfort a pair of peep toes may neglect to provide.
