The Y-3 PureBoost ZG Primeknit sneaker is essentially the blending of two worlds -- both of which exist in the adidas universe. The high fashion black/white mixed Primeknit upper is finished with the brand's styrofoam-like soles (aka Boost technology).
Designed by Yohji Yamamoto, the Y-3 PureBoost ZG Primeknit sneaker "basically are the perfect sneaker for walking around the city for hours or, if you're really feeling stunt-tastic, even for the gym," writes GQ. It's hard to argue with that. Granted, they are retailing for almost double the Ultra Boost. But many people will drop their hard earned cash on a product that is as versatile as these. Not to mention that the Y-3 PureBoost ZG Primeknit sneaker are still well below Kanye's signature shoe design.
