What do you get when you combine the Y-3 Qasa with the Yohji Boost? First seen on Yohji Yamamoto's runway, Y-3 is introducing a new sneaker design next month that is one part high-end fashion and other part technical runner (but don't actually try to run in these) -— the Y-3 Retro Boost. Outfitted with an adidas' Boost midsole, the sneaker's hibiscus-inspired print in the upper is a mix of woven textile, leather, and suede. Retailing for $350, look for the Y-3 Retro Boost to launch on Jan. 15.
