Yoji Yamamoto and adidas again unite for a Y-3 ZX Run and two colorways of the Y-3 Ratio Racer. As the name implies, the ZX Run draws inspiration from the famed ZX series, using both suede and smooth leather across the upper with perforated leather on the heel cap and tongue. A red stripe appears below the laces, while branding appears on a tonal perforated logo and bold black branding on the back. Bearing resemblance to the NMD and I-5923 with a knit upper and bootie construction, the Ratio Racer shrinks the heel height for a shift in perspective. A predominantly black Primeknit upper with white dots and stripes appears on one offering, while the other reverses that pattern with branding on the tongue and an outsole with visible branding.
Yoji Yamamoto and adidas are back at it with two BYW Bball options, an Adizero Runner and a Kaiwa. Neoprene, leather, and suede sit above a Boost midsole on two colorways of the BYW Bball with large branding on the tongue and an embroidered signature on the forefoot. The Adizero Runner mixes black breathable mesh and neoprene on the upper over a white Boost sole with white branding on the tongue tag. Lastly, the Kaiwa has a bold silhouette with white leather and neoprene over large black pods and a white EVA sole with Y3 branding on the heel tab and black tongue tag.

A clean and unorthodox take on the Stan Smith, this luxe Y3 Stan Zip has a heat-pressed construction with a branded heel panel and zippers on either side of the laces over a classic white midsole and outsole. The zippers allow you to remove the lacing system entirely, revealing tonal debossed branding on the tongue.
