ADIDAS Y-3 - Runner 4D ioW (R.4DioW)
Through experimentation and expression, Y-3 transforms a running style for the new era.
The Runner 4D IOW shoes can be worn with the removable adidas Primeknit sock, or played up with an attachable sockliner and tongue. twRevealed through a cutout on the forefoot, the midsole is fuelled by an innovative fusion of light, oxygen and liquid resin to deliver precisely-tuned cushioning.
Y-3 has reimagined its RUNNER 4D IO in “Triple Black.” Originally debuted last October, the shoe bears a sleek mold packed with a bevy of technical materials for a futuristic design.
Compared to the silhouette’s previous transparent design, this iteration features an outer layer that conceals most of the shoe’s uppers. Beneath the shoe’s technical mesh shell is a removable Primeknit sock that offers added comfort and support. A bold white “Y-3” logo is stamped along the shoe’s sidewalls, while “Yohji Yamamoto” branding is placed along the tongue. Rounding up the shoe’s design is a large heel cup and a tonal 4D midsole that’s mostly covered up by the shoe’s outer mesh layer.
