COMME Des GARÇONS SHIRT Explores the ASICS Running and Basketball Archives On Latest Collaboration

COMME Des GARÇONS SHIRT may have a name that indicates an inherent familiarity with top-half-of-body garments, but they’re well-versed in the world of footwear as well. The COMME Des GARÇONS sub-label has a consistent partnership with ASICS, and the most recent byproduct of their creative fusion is a three-pack of monochromatic collabs that pull from the ASICS running and basketball archives.The two partners have produced a duo of takes on the OC Runner, a throwback (you guessed it) running shoe and a single iteration of the Japan S, an old-school hoops sneaker. The OC Runner is available in both high-gloss black and matte white, while the Japan S is available in all-white and features a pixelated graphic from street artist Invader, who’s also worked with CdG SHIRT on an apparel collection in the past. Each shoe is crafted from supple premium leather and both of the OC Runners boast a contrasting tongue badge. The simplicity of this new three-pack is a rather striking departure from the collaborative ethos established on the previous COMME Des GARÇONS SHIRT x ASICS collaborations. In 2022, the two covered the GEL-LYTE III in a colorful camo print and in 2021 they used everything from sparkling details to multi-colored leopard print to the Tarther, an obscure running sneaker. Earlier this year, they even offered up a monochromatic leopard-printed set of takes on the GEL-Lyte V.The COMME Des GARÇONS SHIRT x ASICS OC Runner and Japan are both available now via select retailers, with the former priced at $390 USD.For more footwear news, be sure to check out Sole Mates, a weekly Hypebeast series that spotlights notable individuals in the world of street culture — and the connection they have to their favorite sneakers.Click here to view full gallery at HYPEBEAST
