Rei Kawakubo has developed an entire universe with COMME des GARÇONS that is made up of numerous unique diffusion labels. Each has also developed its very own sneaker alliance in addition to presenting its own distinctive, aesthetic tendencies. This season, CdG HOMME in particular has collaborated with New Balance for two subtle colors of the 550, both of which are currently accessible.
The COMME des GARCONS HOMME x New Balance 550 stays true to the silhouette’s minimalist aesthetic. It uses black and white as well as minimal design elements. The shoe is built with the typical smooth and perforated leather, and at first glance, it appears to be no different from your typical GR. However, the Japanese label’s branding does appear on the shoe’s heel and sock liner, a characteristic of earlier CdG collaborations.
Here you can see a detailed look at the COMME des GARCONS HOMME x New Balance 550 in white and black. Both are now on sale on Dover Street Market, with a suggested retail price of $265 USD.
On the other hand, another Spider-Man Jordan 1 is in the works.
