Adidas and Y-3 Issue A New Makura Colorway.

for its FW22 rollout, Adidas and Yohji Yamamoto prepare to issue a new Makura colorway. Shiny silver pretty much takes over the upper of the Makura sneaker, making the shoe quite hard to miss.

Then again, the Makura is already eye-catching as is, thanks to its super-inflated sole and track-worthy spikes. The metallic paint job just further emphasizes its already-bold presence. Nonetheless, all that glitters on the Y-3 Makura aren’t silver. Earth tones cover the shoe’s lining and lace system, slightly neutralizing the silver vibes.

Take Y-3 FW22 Chapter 3 for example. Titled “Memories of Orange”, the third part saw adidas and Yamamoto honor the iconic hue behind its most memorable logo with football jerseys and a proper footwear spread.

In addition to bringing back the famed Qasa High, Y-3 also dropped the Makura shoe in floral and monochrome schemes, directly inspired by archival Y-3 themes.

Now, Chapter 4 closes the curtain on the series as the fourth and final installment. As a final bow, Y-3 FW22 part four reiterates the partnership’s love for exotic design, hence the collection’s name, “Memory of Exotics.” Indeed, the silver Y-3 Makura fits right in amongst Chapter 4’s bold collection of leopard print skirts, neon outerwear, and pumped-up ULTRABOOST 22.
