While not encompassing the breadth or sheer frequency adidas neo mens of Nike Sportswear Air Max releases, Three Stripes has indeed offered a varied selection of ZX series classic runners in 2012.

adidas garners a ton of attention thanks to Jeremy Scott s collaborations, but if you re talking about long-term impact, no one has contributed more neckbreakers to the Brand with the Three Stripes than Yohji Yamamoto. The Japanese designer whose bold styles helped pave the way for what we ve come to know as lifestyle sneakers returns with four different silhouettes that are as different from the masses as they are from one another. This collection features the debut yeezy adidas shoes of the Y-3 Kazuhirl, an elastic-ankled low-profile hightop whose sleek silhouette is a strong compliment to the equally svelte Honja High. Two more new models make their first appearances as the appropriately named Held hightop comes through with a uniquely strappy take on those iconic Stripes and the GSG-3 boot offers the kind of protection upon which German special forces rely. Prices range adidas yeezy shoes from $290 to $520 and you can see more of the luxurious designs below before buying at select retailers like Kith.
What s lighter than helium? We don t know of any plans to launch an adidas Hydrogen collection, but there are two pretty compelling pieces of evidence to support such a theory. First of all, the silhouette of the adidas Originals H-ZXZ Lite looks to be even lighter than when its ZX Series-inspired lines appeared as part of the H3lium collection, and with the atomic symbol for the smallest element right in the name, maybe Three Stripes is trying to tell us something.

Beast mode has become a popular descriptor for dominant athletes and particularly football players that tacklers simply cannot stop. Take that raw power and aggression and combine it with the kind of price point multi-million dollar ballers are familiar shopping and you ve got a start on this latest release in the long running partnership between adidas and Yohji Yamamoto. The Y-3 Savage brings back the shrouded/corded Trefoil-soled monster of a hightop we first saw earlier this year in a Tricolore setup, this time in an Infrared-ish mix of bright red accent tone plus greys/black.

A shoe sufficiently underappreciated that you might be able to get on the first page of Google results if you can outdo a nervous teenager s video review, this adidas classic that s spent time under the Originals and Skateboarding divisions gets a new revision. The adidas Originals Ciero Winter is familiar with a mix of suede and leather on the understated black/greyscale upper, but what really makes these stand out is the fuzzy fleece lining that should keep you warm throughout the latter part of the year. Throw in some classically adidas blue laces and these are a solid reimagination of a consistent standby that s available now from Titolo.
Takahiro Miyashita s Number (N)ine fell silent around the turn of the decade but the designer wasn t just feeling the crunch of a financial meltdown that d caused the struggles of so many fashion companies.
