The Advantage Of Adidas Y3 Trainers For Sport

Adidas Y3 trainers, or simply Y3 trainers as they're often called, is the sports fashion range of footwear established in the early 1990s through the collaboration between Adidas, the sporting wear giant, and Yohji Yamamoto, one of Japan's leading fashion designers. This fusion of sports technology and designer fashion was immediately successful, and twenty years on it remains a popular formula.

The range of Adidas Y3 trainers available today demonstrates clearly how important this collaboration is and how successful. Whether you're into men's fashion and designer clothing or you're in to footwear designed to enhance performance and provide real benefits to whichever sport you're into, Y3 has much to offer.

For those who enjoy wearing fashion clothing the Y3 trainer offers a unique look that's immediately distinctive. Sporting the traditional three stripes which makes up the Adidas logo (which is where the '3' comes from in the Y3 brand, the 'Y' standing for 'Yamamoto') as well as a sleek, streamlined look and an enormous amount of attention to detail, they are one of the most sought after leisure wear items. But unusually these same trainers are much sought after by those at the top of their game in sporting activities as diverse as tennis and boxing, or running and martial arts.

Each sport places a unique combination of demands on the feet, whether that be twisting, running, bouncing, cushioning, gripping or support to the leg. Having the right kind of footwear can be crucial, not just in helping to provide comfort and minimise damage or strain, but in offering real advantages. For example, if you think about a fairly simple and straightforward sport such as running, the right kind of trainer can offer two key benefits.

As the heal strikes the ground on each stride an enormous force is generated and transferred from the foot all the way up the leg, passing through the ankle joint and the knee joint, as well as imparting a shock wave through the hips, up the back and even as far as the neck. This repetitive shock can cause damage to the joints, muscles and tendons, and so the right kind of footwear for runners offers a cushioning effect at the heal which helps to absorb some of the force, acting almost like a car's shock absorber.

Dampening the force from the heal strike can make a huge difference, but that's not the only benefit which Adidas Y3 trainers for runners can offer. Another benefit offered is a springy, bouncy material applied to the front of the foot, around the ball of the foot. This very bouncy material acts like a sort of spring, so that as you push off with the ball of your foot the trainer actually helps enhance that push, literally putting a spring in your step which helps to maximise the power of each stride.

This combination of materials and combination of benefits is unique to the needs of a runner, and the full range of Adidas Y3 trainers offer unique combinations of benefits like these across a whole range of different sports and sporting activities. Some sports such as boxing need a great deal of ankle support, and the ability to twist and turn lightly and easily on the ball of your foot. Other sports such as martial arts often require much more grip for stability. Whatever sport you're into, if you're looking for an advantage which will help maximise your performance as well as offering comfort and a look that's unmistakably modern and stylish then Adidas Y3 trainers are definitely work a look.
