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.

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.

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.
