Yohji Yamamoto unveiled the newest 'Raito Racer' sneakers with adidas' Y-3 label for the Spring/Summer 2019 season. The word "raito" is the Japanese translation for "light" and the sneakers live up to the name by being the lightest footwear model that Y-3 offers. There are two colorway options for the new racers in black or white. The construction is made up of knit materials throughout the uppers.
This style showcases the label's signature single-panel Primeknit material in 360 degrees. The stretchy uppers sit on top of the label's bouncy I-5923 BOOST midsole. Additional details include the ribbed accent that follows the knit uppers, the transparent lacing systems and the cord loop around the wide-set laces. Notably, the outsole boasts a studded pattern that represents small pebbles for traction.
