COMME des GARCONS Just Blessed the Nike Blazer High

BLACK COMME des GARCONS drops a matted-out Nike Blazer High.

August 18, 2014

Nike Roshe's have come up as the everyday swoosh of choice in recent months, but there's no silhouette that sits closer to my heart than the Blazer. The basketball-turned-skate shoe has been lacing tight since 1973, and is one of the few Nike models that truly looks better with wear and tear--which may be why I've been wearing the same pair since 9th grade. But after spotting this blacked-out version, thanks to COMME des GARCONS and Nike Sportswear, it may be time for an upgrade. While the low-cut version floated by this past fall, we can't quite let the high tops pass us by: suede upper, blacked-out innards and an eye-popping CDG hit on the heel are the details that might have us throwing bows at Dover Street Market to cop these later this month--although a current Ebay listing has us considering even more immediately reckless retail decisions.
