Adidas Y-3 Takes Sock-Like Sneakers to New Heights

Many footwear brands have silhouettes with a sock-like fit and Adidas is no different. While the NMD, Uncaged Ultra Boost and EQT Support Ultra Primeknit are just a few examples of the Three Stripes' sock-like sneakers, the new Y-3 Ultra Boost X takes the concept to a new height.

Releasing as part of the Stella McCartney collection, the Adidas Y-3 Ultra Boost X features a high-top Primeknit upper that closely resembles a crew sock. Releasing in women's sizes the new silhouette comes in “Navy/Gold” and “Orange/White” colorways. Floating midfoot arches and bold lacing system lend to the signature Stella McCartney style, while a traditional Ultra Boost sole completes the design.

The Stella McCartney x Adidas Y-3 Ultra Boost X is available for preorders for $250 at Barney's New York.
