Spring hasn't even hit yet and already, Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas are gearing up for the season by launching a look at the Y-3 SS 2012 Sneaker Collection.

The Y-3 SS 2012 Sneaker Collection is nothing short of impressive which is what anyone can expect from a designer like Yohji Yamamoto. The footwear takes on Adidas' Superstar model as inspiration, but with Yamamoto's own twist. As you can see, it doesn't have laces and instead, utilizes elastic cords that's held by large metallic eyelets. The white toe-cap and soles beautifully contrast the monochromatic upper. Other details include the Y-3 logo embedded on the tongue and heel, as well as a red cord on the back heel. Stats for Cord-Tied Designer Kicks Trending: Older & Average
