For Fall/Winter 2021, the kicks are receiving a fairly slight revision. You still have high and low tops in neutral black and white tones, foxing-free midsoles, contrasting heel panel, and the typically elevated quality of Converse's Chuck '70, as the shoes' devotees have come to expect. Now, though, there's an additional bit of white stitching at the midfoot, cutting that giant heart logo right through the middle. Will this bisected branding make the collab only half as popular? Eh, probably not, especially considering that the heart has been split for a while The only real barrier to these shoes' success is the fact that they're a Japan-exclusive, at least for now. Maybe it's a matter of testing the waters, given that the design is a little more dramatic. On one hand, it's a step towards removing that heart wholesale, which would truly be a big move for CDG Play, perhaps the most branding-conscious COMME des GARÇONS sub-label (maybe more so than CDG, even). The split composition is kinda the kid-friendly version of COMME's groundbreaking mainline designs, which eschewing convention in favor of textural experiments and amorphous silhouettes distantly removed from the human form.
