Editor’s Notes: Y-3 introduces an all-new silhouette for SS19, the Raito Racer, which is a streamlined redesign of adidas’ I-5923 Boost.
The Raito Racer is named for the Japanese word for “light” (“raito”), serving as the lightest and fastest sneaker under the Y-3 label. The shoe features a breathable 360-degree Primeknit upper, with a Boost midsole underneath. A sock-like collar provides a snug fit, while the laces are held in place by a translucent overlay. Lastly, the grippy, micro-studded outsole bears a pebbled effect.
Y-3 is scheduled to launch the all-new Raito Racer at Y-3 stores, select retailers, and online tomorrow, December 13.
