The "Y" in Y-3 stands for avant-garde Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto; the "3" represents Adidas’s three signature stripes. Since its launch in 2003, Y-3 has become one of the most influential clothing lines in sports fashion, with impeccably constructed men’s and women’s separates, shoes and accessories that meld Yamamoto’s cutting-edge eye with the rugged sports aesthetic of Adidas. Signature looks include printed art T-shirts, stylized sweatpants, and denim pieces emblazoned with the iconic Adidas stripes, as well as couture-inspired sneakers, bright neon high-tops, and fitted beanies and caps.

Warning: With workout clothes as fashionable as these, you might not make it to the gym. Gola’s retro-chic track jackets and duffels are sporty yet stylish. Y-3, a collaboration between adidas and avant-garde Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto, takes athletic clothes and shoes to the next level, with sporty creations including asymmetric tops, stretch-cotton bermuda pants, thong sandals and some of the coolest low-top sneakers around.
As you'd expect from a collaboration between avant-garde designer Yohji Yamamoto and adidas, the shoes here are both fashionable and fashioned for high performance. Now whether you want to take to the pitch sporting a pair of golden footies (offset nicely with red and black) or a pair of handsome red, white and blue ones and potentially ruin them is your call.
Black is back (as if it ever left) in this array of sleek items. From the expected pieces (leather jackets, visor sunglasses) to some intriguing variations on the theme (black pants with a few choice white and red accents), this combination of Y-3 and Y-3 Accessories stays largely on the dark side. A few flashes of color and contrast, including a pair of sneakers with Roy Lichtenstein-esque black-and-white stripes, make the black look that much blacker.
