Company profile
Y-3 brings sport-style to the street. Fueled by the innovations of adidas and expressed in the language of Yohji Yamamoto, Y-3 creates apparel, footwear, and accessories that blur boundaries and cross genres—a vision driven equally by the German sports icon and the Japanese designer.

At its founding in 2002, Y-3 established fashion sportswear—a product category it has since defined and redefined. Fifteen years later, Y-3 possesses a signature style, one that unites the seemingly contradictory worlds of athletics (engineered garments, intensive performance, the three stripes) and high fashion (elegance, fluidity, tailoring).

The Y-3 look is progressive yet practical, informed by Mr. Yamamoto’s singular understanding of the silhouette and the body. Billowing volumes allow for unrestricted movement, while futuristic fabrications enable long-wearing function and comfort. This is all paired with a street-made confidence and a dose of Mr. Yamamoto’s humor, conjuring an attitude that can only be described as Y-3.Mr. Yamamoto’s imprint on Y-3 is unmistakable.

As a master of proportion and one of the world’s most influential living designers, he infuses Y-3 with his poetic sensibility: the penchant for black, the daring shapes, and the purity of design. Simultaneously, Adidas draws on its most advanced technologies to push the limits of craftsmanship and composition. The result is a modern uniform of the streets—designed in Japanese and German ateliers and intended for the world.

In footwear, Y-3 has a history of dominating the landscape with iconic shapes and breakthrough materials, as demonstrated by an enduring and evolving roster of sought-after styles. From the bold proportions and minimalist structure of the cult-favorite Qasa to the innovation of the RUNNER 4D, Y-3 footwear consistently embodies the pioneering nature of the brand.
