Editor’s Notes: Having garnered a reputation for its tailored mix of both eccentric and elegant attire, the latest COMME des GARCONS HOMME x New Balance sides more with the latter as the duo offer their take on the timeless 247 silhouette.

As a balanced, functional silhouette, choosing the 247 seems rather logical for the Japanese powerhouse. Featuring a tonal upper, available in either navy blue or all-white, the silhouette has trimmed away most of the fat associated with contemporary sneaker collaborations (bright laces, too many colors, etc.), and presents a model in its purest form.

Enjoy an early look at the silhouette above, and be sure to stay tuned for information on a wider release as and when we receive it.
