COMME des GARÇONS brought an avant-garde approach to the classic Nike Dunk, adding clear panels to the upper. The shoe was first unveiled at the label’s men’s show at Paris Fashion Week last summer, and follows up on many other partnerships between the Japanese fashion house and the Beaverton-based athletic brand.
Stone Island’s fresh spin on the Sock Dart silhouette was characterized by a unique pattern on the toe box, as well as Stone Island and Swoosh co-branding at the tongue. We’ve seen numerous co-branded apparel drops from Nike and Stone Island, and we largely have high expectations any time the two brands come together.
The Superstar is one of the most classic shoes in adidas’ catalog, and when the German sportswear brand added its touted Boost technology, the refreshed silhouette instantly became a contender for sneaker of the year. Social Status and Sneakernstuff were brought on to introduce the silhouette as part of Consortium’s Sneaker Exchange program.
