eYe COMME des GARCONS JUNYA WATANABE MAN and New Balance have come together once again to collaborate on a luxe version of the footwear company’s MRL996 silhouette. Every time these guys collaborate, the results are nothing short of amazing, this time incorporating premium materials and Junya’s impeccable eye for detail into a silhouette which remains intact and timeless. The SS14 offering continues this run of form, presenting a red leather upper with reflective grey accents and a classic white mid-sole and lining. Keeping everything refined is the name of the game, and dual branding features on the insole (which means you’re gonna have to tell your friends these aren’t just NB).

Keep an eye out for the collaborative MRL996 when it releases later in April.
