How many high heels shoes have you seen me praise around here? How about sneakers? One-too many, huh? Yeah, well today it’s no different. Maybe. A little. The Torsion Heel by Adidas Y – 3 aims to destroy my love for both high heels shoes and sneakers.
With an unnaturally bizarre looking sneaker-high heel, Adidas hopes to conquer this particularly coveted market section with a little help from Johji Yamamoto. Even though they say they have technology on their side (morphing technology you normally find in athletic shoes into 9cm high heels shoes), I deeply resent the shape and the aesthetics of these…um.. how should we call them? (wait, you think this is all they came up with? Wait till you see what’s waiting for you after the jump!) (Adidas via)
