For Fall/Winter 2016, adidas and Yohji Yamamoto have created a modern and elegant version of the iconic Stan Smith. Taking the simplistic shape, Y-3 have managed to add their own angle to the shoe without moving away the original design.

The one-piece upper of the Stan Zip uses the same material as the upper of the Qasa, with a rubber heel tab also lending itself from the ninja-style silhouette. The most standout feature of the Stan Zip is the dual-zip tongue, which adds a modern twist to the iconic model. Zipping both zips down reveals embossed Yohji Yamamoto branding at the tongue, with further branding found embossed to the zip.

The Y-3 Stan Zip in white is available now from shops like Aphrodite for approximately $290 USD.
