The sneaker has also been created in collaboration with tennis star Naomi Osaka. Today we want to tell you more about the special collaboration, the release date and the style of the new Naomi Osaka x Comme des Garçons x Nike Blazer Mid! Let's go!
Your #TheCrew Background Check
Naomi Osaka is a 23 years old professional tennis player from Japan. The tennis star is tenth in the world rankings and has won two Grand Slam tournaments. Naomi Osaka is already known by big names like Sacai and also by CDG.
Sneakers in collaboration with the Japanese fashion label Comme des Garçons traditionally go through the ceiling! COMME des GARÇONS was founded by the designer Rei Kawakubo and the brand is known for its avant-garde aesthetics. Especially together with Nike they have turned the sneaker game upside down in the last years. And of course the Chuck models from Converse and CDG are legendary!
