Nike and Comme des Garçons‘ Blazer sneaker (style code: DA5383-100) celebrating tennis champ Naomi Osaka is now live. Offered as part of Tokyo-based Dover Street Market and SWITCH Publishing’s “People of the Year” capsule celebrating eight creatives, the Osaka sneaker is accompanied by a coordinated white t-shirt detailed with black print.
Nike press on the effort reads, “Osaka’s success on the court is proven as a three-time Grand Slam champion. She also makes an impact off the court, as an advocate for change in the social- and racial-justice movement and as a role model encouraging and empowering the next generation of female athletes. For this reason, Osaka has been honored as one of the “People of the Year” by Comme des Garçons and SWITCH Publishing.”
Designed by Comme des Garçons and Dover Street Market’s Rei Kawakubo, the white canvass Blazer is detailed with a white leather Swoosh and a grey-colored, all-over Comme des Garçon and Naomi Osaka print as well as Osaka’s signature and the words “Home is where the heart is” on the shoe’s quarter panel.
In addition to the Nike Blazer, Osaka was recently tapped by Scottish accessory company Strathberry to help design a bag capsule.
