Take a First Look at COMME des GARÇONS x New Balance's Sneaker Collaboration
First spotted at Junya Watanabe’s FW19 show.
Junya Watanabe called his Fall/Winter 2019 show at Paris Fashion Week Men’s “Silver Swagger,” turning his attention to the middle-aged man and culminating in a collaboration with COMME des GARÇONS and New Balance.
The models in questions are the New Balance 1500, 990, and 574. Worn under tweed, denim and other heritage details, the sneakers wear black leather, navy mesh and tan suede respectively, rounded out by minimal branding. This is the original Dad shoe.
The silhouettes that debuted at the show won’t release until August 1. But on February 1, the brands will commemorate their new collaboration with a drop, yet to be revealed.
