Following a black variation released last year, the imprint’s slip-on Lister silhouette receives the Watanabe treatment once again. The signature sneaker promotes the Japanese designer’s sleek aesthetic, enveloped in premium suede and tinted in pale beige. Tonal stitching adorns the collars and heels alongside expanding webbed detailing that accentuates the muted tongue-like panels. A curved shaking hands illustration hits the tongue areas embroidered on white patches, while S.W.C. branding is debossed on the heel plaques below a decorative stripe.
Canvas interiors are stamped with Junya Watanabe MAN and Stepney Workers Club lettering, while trademark white rubber sole units are complete with enlarged “JWCdGMAN” markings.
This iteration of the Junya Watanabe MAN x Stepney Workers Club Lister is available to purchase now at select Comme des Garçons stockist for $395 USD.
