Japan-based Comme des GarÃ§ons is known for it’s innovative and far-reaching aesthetic, yet its SHIRT imprint is one that has a more utilitarian approach. This collaboration shoe with another brand who makes items meant for the everyday man, Generic Surplus, these models preserve the sleek aesthetic of a lifestyle shoe while remembering to add some details and features to make the models stand out. The mid looks like a chunky boat shoe with regular sneaker laces, but the raised seam along the toebox adds a bit of dimension. The lowtop model has a monochromatic upper with a toe cap and a side panel. Both feature a throwback feel with the gumsole that contrast nicely with the navy upper. These are now up for grabs, in a limited run, at colette.
