The Comme des Garcons SHIRT x Asics Tarther has certainly had heads spinning as soon as it found its way through our shop doors.

Following on from their widely successful work on the Gel Lyte III, Asics and Comme des Garcons SHIRT team up once again to add their sartorial touch to another classic sportswear silhouette. Focusing their gaze on what could be a spiritual adaption of the ’60s Tiger Runner, the Asics Tarther Sneaker deploys a selection of mixed-material, multi-layered magic to mark the next chapter of their collaborative partnership.
Created from an outer leather casing which stretches from the toe to the heel, a combination of suede, mesh and textile makeup the remainder of their uppers, ensuring plenty of lightweight breathability / all-day comfort. Arriving with bold hits of blue and pink respectively, each pair receives a flecked gold coating for a subtle, but not overlooked, touch of high-end luxury.
With branding to the side, tongue and heel taking care of the formalities, the trainers sit atop a newly conceived version of their running inspired sole. Utilising supportive materials such as EVA foam and constructed with a striking mid-foot arch, a rubber outsole, complete with neon pops and glittered patterns, provides traction when on-foot.
