Y3 Retro Boost AW15 | The Style Raconteur Y3 Retro Boost AW15 | The Style Raconteur

Y-3′s ultra popular Retro Boost gets two new colorways for the fall, with the introduction of different luxury materials incorporated in the silhouette. A black colorway gets a luxurious remake with embossed crocodile leather paneled in the heel of the upper, for an inconspicuous twist against the neoprene upper and white pebbled outsole. A blue colorway sees suede included among neoprene and a striped midsole upon a pebbled white outside. Check out the pictures above, and expect the new styles to hit stores later this year.

Y-3 Spring Summer 2015 Footwear Collection

Y-3 Spring Summer 15 | The Style Raconteur

Y-3 are smashing in at the moment with this seasons introduction of the Qasa and Boost silhouettes which was going to bw hard to top but they have done it again for the second season on the bounce. They have just unveiled the remaining styles in its latest 2015 spring summer footwear collection. Adopting a predominantly muted colour palette of black and white, the lineup encompasses models such as the new Qasa Retro Boost, Laver slip-on, Held 2 high-top, Kaohe sandal and Kohna Futuristic as well as two of the original Qasa silhouettes. While the sneakers incorporate incognito colours, the materials utilized create an interesting effect like with the rest of the previous releases, where we find neoprenes, suedes and leather accents tastefully adorning different areas. The above boost is the winning style for me.

Y-3 are flying at the moment so many amazing styles and I’ve had a preview of next Summer and they are only going to take a bigger part of the premium sneaker market. Recently dropped is the Boost a sole unit obviously taken from Y-3’s bigger brother.  Its a design that features a minimal and super breathable mesh upper with a black and white stripe pattern running across almost the entirety of the shoe. A black semi-rigid suede heel and tongue provide a bit of added support without taking away from the sleek design, and underneath is a supremely comfortable Boost sole. They have dropped HERE
