I would never dare to say that I’m some kind of expert on shoes, but I know when they catch my eye. Take the Y-3 Sly from Yohij Yamamato, which aren’t a show or a sandal, they’re a shandal. Now think outside the box with me a for a bit on this one. We rarely see a new type of footwear appear, unless it’s some sort of horrible anomaly like the Shape-Up. So I think it’s exciting that Yohji has managed to craft something that’s just slightly off from the norm, that’s not quite a full show but neither a sandal.
It seems to me like it’s a pretty high tech looking shoe. I’m not sure if just anyone could rock these, but I’d certainly be willing to try. I don’t wear socks anyhow, so this actually might be better for me. Though at around $300, I’m not sure I’d be willing to try.
