Y-3 Reimagines The Timeless Stan Smith for FW16


For his Fall/Winter 2016 roll-out, Yohji Yamamoto reintroduces the iconic Stan Smith silhouette as the Y-3 Stan Zip. The famed designer has kept the recognizable sole and upper for this iteration of the shoe, and added some refreshing modern details to put a twist on a classic. Instead of the usual lace system, two metallic zippers have been added to each side of the lacing, serving as eye-catching aesthetic additions to the sleek all-white color of the shoe. Another noticeable change is the material of the shoe. Instead of the Primeknit or leather material seen in the past, the Stan Zip is made from the same material seen on Y-3’s Qasa. Tying the shoe together is a new branded heel-tab and tongue, which showcase the designers attention to modern details and branding. The shoe is now available at select retailers worldwide including Acrimony.
