Cool Collaboration

Pro Leather Low
in black and white, $135

Comme des
Garcons PLAY
x Converse

Comme des Garcons PLAY has done some cool versions of Converse kicks in the past. You might have seen their rendition of the Chuck Taylor: the ankle patch is replaced by Filip Pagowski's iconic heart design. For their latest collaboration, the Japanese label and American sneaker brand throw the logo all-over the retro Pro Leather model. The sneakers just debuted in New York, and will become available in Paris and London in June. We'll admit, it's a little out there, but Comme des Garcon's stuff isn't known for being subtle. Or affordable, for that matter. So for casual fans or appreciators of the brand, this could be that one piece you splurge on and wear constantly. Good thing the Pro Leather's basketball roots mean it's as comfortable as it is attractive.

Styling Tip

These kicks make a statement. Balance them out with a pair of slim navy chinos (cuffed of course) and a crisp white oxford, untucked with the sleeves rolled up.
