However, this year’s Fall lineup is making an effort to include some weather-appropriate footwear in the form of the new NOTOMA boot. Constructed from Primaloft-lined nylon and reinforced with taped uppers, the NOTOMA is built for any elements, keeping you both warm and dry no matter where they take you. Closing in on 17 years of the partnership, Adidas Y-3 NOTOMA has kept up a fairly constant rotation of new footwear and apparel, sticking to seasonal goods when needed. This month, Y-3 is introducing their latest sneakers, offering up the high-top NOTOMA boot as a rugged and durable option for the upcoming Fall and Winter months. Simply known as Y-3, the label allows Yamamoto to flex his creatives muscles in the sportswear category while sticking to his knowledge of high-quality materials and construction methods, as well as giving adidas a chance to have their own line of high-end products.
A marbled midsole brings in shades of orange that contrast the blue frenzy well while an icy clear blue Nike Air VaporMax 2020 unit finishes off the design being placed in at the bottom. Nike will be dropping another rendition of their Air VaporMax 2020 soon in a tonal “Stone Blue” colorway perfect for the Fall and Winter. Dressed in a Stone Blue colorway, the rendition calls for an official color-blocking of Stone Blue, Deep Royal Blue, and Glacier Blue. Across the knitted upper, shades of grey adorn the toes while different blues are used through the other portions of the shoe while also inscribing the Nike Swoosh logo on the side panelings.
Originally released in 2004 as a limited-edition collaboration, the shoe drew inspiration from Dave Ortiz’ butcher shop-themed boutique, with bacon as the main course. Both light and dark shades of brown, red, and a splash of pink make up the legendary DQM x Nike Air Max 90 Bacon, which is set to return sometime this year. Taking inspiration from DQM’s butcher shop theme, the “Bacon” Air Max 90 displays an array of colors that immediately evoke the idea of the tasty breakfast meat. In 2004, the brand teamed up with New York City’s DQM 2020 Cheap Ray-Ban Sunglasses boutique for an exclusive release of the fan-favorite Air Max 90.
