Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas are two powerhouses that never seem to fail at anything, and it proves with their latest pair of footwear dubbed the Y-3 Sala.

The latest footwear to come from the designer and the sporting brand is the Y-3 Sala, which is probably as suave as it gets when it comes to making Adidas sneakers look formal. The upper features a scaled leather pattern, giving it a crocodile-like theme that makes it look dangerously stylish. The low-tops feature a very subtle, but noticeable three stripes that is seen on every Adidas shoe. Additional details include a raised heel collar, silver tone logo at the heel and tongue, as well as a contrasting white from the logo and the midsole area.
