This is yohji's range now. As I understand stand it, there will be no more signature collections- Just y-3.

Hey guys,

I have quite a few pairs of Y-3 sneakers and have just recently purchased this seasons limited editions. They are the silver glitter track trainers seen on http://www.adidas.com/y-3.

They cost me 400 ($700), what do you guys think of them and do you think I was ripped off.

There are only 400 pairs made so that was propably the reason I bought them.

That link didn't work for me but I do know the shoes you are talking about. Honestly, I don't like them that much and I couldn't fathom spending $700 on a pair of sneakers. And I'm certainly not a cheapskate when it comes to shoes. I'd spend that money on a superb pair of Helmut Lang boots or some incredible Bruno Frisoni pumps.

If you're doubting it, I say return them. That is WAY too much money to spend on something that you're iffy about.

Just saw them
I would never spend $ 700 on those ,I think they're a bit too much.
If you are not 100 % sure about them,I'd go back to the shop or try Ebay.
That's what I should have done with my Y-3 too .

I went to the Y-3 show during this years Paris Fashion week ( which was fantastic ).

Next seasons range is a lot better than the current season and I believe that the clothing is actually quite good.

I own a few pairs of Y-3 and have done from the begining, the problem that im facing is that if they get voted best trainer of the year that everyone will soon be wearing them.

i dont think they are that great. the reason i buy them is becasue they are a good alternative to real trainers and they are not that typical designer trainer that wouldnt go with my dress-down outfits
