Hard Bargain: Yohji Yamamoto's Fresh New Kicks

comingsoon0930A
While getting your hands on a design of Yohji Yamamoto's was probably somewhat of a fantasy before, picks from his diffusion line of sneakers and apparel, Coming Soon, could be your dream come true. Minimalistic yet attention-catching, just like his ready-to-wear, the collection's latest rubber-soled hi-top kicks are stark and attractive in shades of contrasting black and white. Better yet, they'll be a lot gentler on your wallet than a look straight off the runway. Now if only Nicholas Ghesquiere was as enterprising…we could use a pair of budget-friendly robot leggings.
