Sneakers from the Future: adidas Y-3 vs NikeLab

Friday, December 16, 2016 5:28:24 PM Europe/Paris

We present two black boot-like sneakers constructed with high quality materials to resist any type of condition. Join us to know more about them:


When we think about Yamamoto, we think about innovation. adidas Y-3 is surely “the future of sportswear”, as they call themselves. This time, they have created a forward-thinking silhouette in an all-black colorway for unrivalled fit and support

These boots by adidas and Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto feature a snug bootie and a zip on the heel. While the upper is constructed with Premium leather and textile with reflective details, the TPU weld on the toe cap protects against water and dirt. Other details include the cushioned Poron® sockliner and EVA midsole.


Nike is never far behind and, in the hands of NikeLab, they release high quality and stylish collections suited for any occasion. The Zoom Tallac Flyknit is part of the ACG line, a collection of footwear and apparel suitable for any terrain in any condition.

This silhouette presents a Flyknit upper around the lace system for a sock-like and lightweight fit. It also features a lightweight Phylon foam midsole with a Zoom Air unit for cushioning, and the rugged outsole provides traction across multiple surfaces. It is definitely a sneaker that combines the rugged construction of a hiking boot with the responsive cushioning of a lightweight runner, ready to take it anywhere.
