eYe Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons MAN x New Balance 1400
Junya Watanabe’s recent sneaker collaborations have carried his own name, most notably a duo of Reebok Insta Pump Furys, the latter of which came to market with a matching RC car for one of the craziest ‘packs’ we’ve seen this year. The next one comes in a completely different style, and instead of just Jun’s own name on the project, it’s the Comme des Garçons fashion label to which he’s contributed so many designs. The eYe Comme des Garçons x New Balance 1400 is something like the opposite of the purple and pink polka-dotted Insta Pumps, a simple black suede number with grey stitching and accents that’d be a hit with classic running fans no matter the collaborator. Check them out up close below and stick with Sneaker News to see if Jun Watanabe’s NB1400s ever make it to US retailers. via hfundercov
this is the era of HYPEBEAST, where design is no.2, HYPE is number one, just look at your beautiful boy, justin bieber hahahhah ROFL
What is the point of these. Looks about the same as what I can buy off of he New Balance website already. They already put some high quality materials on their GR shoes. Why would I pay $300 for a pair of NB's that say Comme Des Garscons on the insole. WTF>
Yeah, especially with high quality NB American releases like the multitude of 1300's and 574's that retail no more than $120 and good release from England like the 1500's that cost isn't that high in some place.
