Following the release of the first iteration of the Gendo series in 2022, this season, Adidas and Yohji Yamamoto introduce the Y-3 S-Gendo Run, advancing the previous silhouette.

Drawing on the concept of Chapter 1 of Y-3’s SS24 collection, where “organic and the synthetic produces unexpected beauty,” the sneaker’s hollow plate plays with negative space and elevation. “With nods to the Japanese concept of ‘Ma’ in which space creates deeper meaning and shape, the silhouette is a defiant expression of the Contra-Natural spirit.”

The Y-3 S-Gendo Run merges the advanced midsole technologies of Adidas’ latest running models with “the aesthetic heritage of the brand’s archival trainers.” A sport-inspired breathable mesh, suede and leather upper sits atop a Lightstrike midsole and a hollow Pebax plate (incorporating a poured-in EVA element), for a “stark silhouette.” The outsole juxtaposes a seasonal floral graphic with a herringbone tread.
