Following on from velvety black Tempo that dropped earlier this month, the double CdG brand (acting as a womenswear sub-label) delivers a color scheme that feels less on-brand for Rei Kawakubo. Despite this, the sneaker is still a hit, combining dark grey leather used on the toe, lateral and medial-side guards, eyestay component, and heel section alongside a grey cotton camouflage print.
This print covers the shoe’s toe box and vamp, as well as the side panels and the small section near the collar of the shoe. Its tongue is also covered in the print, which is subsequently overlayed with black laces and a dual-branded tongue tab reading both monikers in black block lettering.
Rounding out the pair is a wedge-shaped sole unit in black with a black waffle outsole completing the look. Check out the COMME des GARÇONS COMME des GARÇONS x Spalwart Tempo in grey camo above, and pick up a pair for yourself from Offspring now, where the sneaker retails for $106 USD.
