Youhji Yamamoto‘s design resume puts him among the best in the business. Continually innovating and collaborating with other leading brands and always on the look-out for new ways to blend influences from the East and West into his pieces. These Y-3 Grey Suede Held sneakers for Fall/Winter 2012 do just that, with their highlight feature centering on a leather and nylon strap placed at the bridge of the foot, giving you a secure fit and providing the inspiration for the name of the shoe. Mixed in with the suede along the side panels is tonal textile mesh detailing that blend in also with the tonal laces, held in place with brass D-ring eyelets. A pull tab at the heel collar and a white and grey rubber sole with a raised logo at the heel finish off the look. These are available for purchase now at SSENSE.
