At only 22 years old, tennis superstar Naomi Osaka is already the highest-paid female athlete in history — and now she’s expanding her sartorial scope by joining forces with COMME des GARÇONS for a special Nike Blazer collaboration. A nod to Osaka and CdG’s shared Japanese heritage, the classic Nike shoe is awash in printed details and features a crisp color scheme.
A light grey textured print covers the entirety of the upper. This print is done up in CdG’s signature blocky Helvetica Neue font, and alternates between Osaka’s full name and COMME des GARÇONS spellout motifs. The tennis superstar’s signature then appears in black on the quarter, overlapping both the print and the white Swoosh. Below this, “Home is Where the Heart is” is written out in black.
Although the prints that cover it are loud, the shoe’s base itself is decidedly minimalist. Built of white canvas, it’s accented with white leather Swooshes and heel pieces, plus shaggy grey suede overlays on the forefoot and toe cap. Signature exposed foam tongues and trim rubber midsoles round off the look.
Release information for this three-way Blazer collaboration has yet to be revealed, but will likely appear in the coming weeks.
