This past April, Adidas Y-3 introduced a brand new basketball model with the help of reigning NBA MVP James Harden. Now, the latest pair of the pricey, basketball-inspired BYW Bball is back in a colorway perfectly aligns with Harden's Houston Rockets uniform.
The upper of the sneaker is mostly constructed of a red neoprene with black suede on the toe box. Black hits are also used on the waxed laces, molded lateral panel, Y-3 branding, and outsole. Designer Yohji Yamamoto's signature is stitched into the toebox in white.
From a technological standpoint, the BYW Bball utilizes the podular Boost You Wear midsole that was inspired by Feet You Wear tech from the '90s.
Y-3's BYW Bball is currently available at select retailers like Sneakersnstuff for the hefty price tag of $450.
