Y3 Ajatu Sneakers

Y3 Ajatu Collection

Y-3 has ended up being a long-lasting collaboration between Adidas and world-renowned Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto, with the first of their partnership pieces being released in 2002. Since then, this infusion of sport and fashion stylings has become more superior year on year, with the brand now dominating the athleisure scene.


Y3 Ajatu Collection


The AJATU line is Y-3’s most recent contribution to the sneakers sphere having taken great inspiration from one of Adidas’ most notorious silhouettes: the Nizza. Influenced by the notorious 70’s basketball high-top sneaker, the AJATU Court High Trainers adorn amplified tooling, a feature that is consistent with the chunkier soles encapsulated by today’s contemporary trends. The upper exhibits a hybrid of textile and suede leather, a feature that exhibits the marriage of both sporting and high fashion worlds. With these sneaks, you don’t even have to undo your own laces as a wrap round zip situates the heel of the shoes, affording wearers practicality without forsaking style.


Y3 Ajatu Run Trainers


However, if you are looking for something a little more athletic, Yamamoto has you covered with the AJATU Run Trainers. In keeping with the emphasized proportions of this line, the AJATU Run sits atop a substantial sole which harnesses Adidas Lightstroke technology for guaranteed comfort and support. The AJATU Runs upper embodies the same blend of fabrics with the addition of mesh detailing, adding the active aesthetic of the piece.


Y3 Ajatu Run Sneakers


Both pairs of trainers are branded with Y-3 tabs, while the available colourways align with Yamamoto’s signature stylings which often feature darker tones with white or beige accents to interrupt the tuberosity of his pieces, showcasing his monochromatic aesthetics.

Y3 Sneaker FYW S-97

Y-3 FYW S-97: Yohji Yamamoto Remixes An adidas Icon

Y-3 Transforms The Iconic FYW S-97 Sneaker

After more than 16 years of fruitful partnership, adidas and Yohji Yamamoto are working on forging an even stronger alliance; with the Three Stripes label offering Y-3 exclusive access to the FYW S-97 sneaker.

Y3 FYW S-97's

The revolutionary design first debuted in ’97 during a time when the footwear industry hadn’t really got off the ground yet. Trainer technology was still in its inception stage and sneaker styles were delivered through narrowminded visions. Cue the trailblazing tactics of adidas

In-house experts at the sportswear label instilled fresh energy into the industry when they launched their ‘Feet You Wear’ technology. The science behind FYW technology, to which the shoe takes its name, was ambitious in every way. Previous designs had led the way for square-shaped soles, while this runner chose to hone in on the natural contours of the foot. Though more rounded trainers like this were virtually unheard of at the time, the masses embraced them full-force. Thus, setting the wheels in motion for boundless interpretations to come.

Now, in today’s age, where luxury and athleisure often collide – as the Y-3 partnership has so often proved, the FYW S-97 trainer is to take a premium turn. More streamlined than the original, Y-3’s FYW S-97 boasts a strictly angled design at the toe. However, its sharper silhouette still imbues referential flair for the past. These retro details unfold in the wavy lines showcased on the midsole and caging system.

Y-3 FYW S-97 Trainers

Layers of Primeknit can be found across the uppers of both the black and white pairs, something FYW S-97 fans will be used to. Closer up, suede and leather overlays fall in all the usual spots, while a sock-like fit around the ankle provides superlative flexibility.

Perhaps the most distinctive element of this iteration is the Yohji Yamamoto sign off. Etched in white on the black colourway and vice versa, the emblazoned script is truly symbolic of status. A signal from the Japanese designer that these sneakers are wholly Y-3. Finally, dual density Boost™ cushioning propels the foot from the ground upwards. As a result, wearers can expect the smoothest ride ever and unbeatable comfort.Yohji Yamamoto Y-3 FYW S-97

Set to get the streets and the sneaker scene talking, this luxe Y-3 FYW S-97 remix is a game changer. Cop both colourways at Aphrodite in-store or online when the sneakers launch July 18th, 2019.

January Sneakers New Arrivals

January Top Picks – Sneaker Edition

By now, the novelty of the festive season is probably just wearing off; the weather is bleak, payday seems to be getting further and further away and work days inexplicably last longer than they seemed to pre-Christmas.

We’re with you, so to cheer you (and ourselves) up, we’ve decided to do a little round up of our favourite new sneakers that have already dropped for the SS19 season – because we love sneakers and these ones are part of the Summer season, which at this point feels like a distant memory.
First off, we go to the old classic, adidas. adidas have clearly been hard at work for this season as we have already had a plethora of sleek new silhouettes and colourways land for Spring/Summer 2019, with much more to come.

We’ll start with the brand-spanking new Yung-1’s. Last year’s chunky silhouette has been carried through to 2019, this time paired with a muted, pale grey colourway that is reminiscent of the Yeezy Salt collection that graced our eyeballs (and feet, if you’re lucky) late last year.

The Yung-1’s have been bold in their colourways in the past, however this time adidas have cleverly used contrasting textures and tonal colour blocking to ensure that the shoe remains bold yet understated. Paired with the adidas Torsion support outsole, the Yung-1 is the dad-shoe we all need in our lives.

adidas Originals Yung 1

It could be said that the sporting giant has, in the past, been somewhat overshadowed by adidas’ prowess within the sneaker market. However with their Virgil Abloh Off White collaborations selling out across the world, and a bunch of brave new silhouettes dropping in 2018, it’s obvious that Nike aren’t slowing down any time soon.

One silhouette that was much-talked about in the sneaker world, was the Air Max 270 Bowfin. Joining the infamous Air Max tribe (and surviving), is not an easy task. The first Bowfin was released early last year and after a few months to gain momentum on the sneaker scene, it has gone from strength to strength with a number of bright colourways now available.

Nike 270 Bowfin TrainersThe most recent drop is that of a Pumice and Cinder (or orange and purple for us mere mortals) colourway. Sitting upon Nike’s biggest air ‘bubble’ sole to date, the upper features a sock like design adorned in contrasting textiles and patterns making this trainer anything but subtle. Overall, the Bowfin adds bright but by no means garish colour to everyone’s favourite chunky silhouette, ultimately cementing its place in the Nike Air Max hall of fame.  


Ah, Y3. Our favourite East-Asian export never fails to disappoint with their avant-garde styles and futuristic designs that push fashion to its science-fiction limits. We’ve been spoiled for the SS19 season with a number of new styles dropping into our laps, however we have to showcase our favourite; the Harigane II.

Y-3 Harigane II Sneakers

The silhouette first made an appearance last year, however Yohji has refreshed the shoe for an impactful New Year drop. Keeping the sculpture-like geometric sole and sharp shark-tooth outsole from last year’s style, the Hargiane II has been given a sleek upgrade with a lightweight Primeknit upper.  Topstitching and hand-stitched zigzag detailing give the Harigane II a premium quality that is simply a given when purchasing a pair of Y3 trainers.

Y-3 Spring/Summer ’19: First Footwear Drop

After the success of last year’s celebratory 15-year anniversary collection, Y-3 are right back at it for 2019 with a slew of new footwear models.

Y-3 SS19 Raito Racer

The key piece from the first drop is the all-new Raito Racer. Japanese for ‘light’, the Raito takes its name seriously, building on a thickly-cushioned wedge of Boost with ultra-light Primeknit uppers for a breathable, supportive fit. Yohji Yamamoto’s typical flair for design detail is on full display here, with topstitched lacing sections that also serve to add extra support and structure to the inner of the shoe, along with an eyecatching ‘mosaic’ outsole and minimal branding for a sleek and thoroughly modern look.

Y-3 Raito Racer Sneakers in White

Meanwhile, the popular Harigane sneaker from last season is getting a refreshed look for the new year. Keeping the scuptural, geometric sole unit and sharktooth outsole from the original, the Harigane II is upgraded with monochrome Primeknit uppers and topstitched detailing for a more streamlined look than its predecessor. Keeping with the rest of the season, the finishing touch comes with hand-stitched zigzag detailing to the tongues.

Finally, the imprint resurrects the adidas ZX Flux silhouette for its own version, the ZX Run. Building on the original’s Torsion-equipped sole unit, the ZX Run boasts uppers in a textured mixture of premium leather, suede and nylon. Perforated detailing and a panelled design calls to mind classic Y-3 styles but with contemporary branding and tooling for an all-day comfortable ride.
