Editor’s Pick: Comme des Garçons x Bata Tennis Shoes

Game, set, and match. Pharrell called it, Kenzo showed it, and Dior Homme nailed it—hell we even wrote about it: see “On the Dot” in Essential Homme August/September 2014—the polka dot has popped up this year more popular than ever before. Joining this retro resurfacing just in time for the holidays, fashion-subverting savants Comme des Garçons have added their own spin to the preppy pattern, decorating heritage tennis styles from Bata Tennis into limited edition low-tops. Exclusively sold at Comme des Garçons boutiques, Dover Street Market, I.T Beijing Market, and colette, the new collaboration bounces off the minimalism of the original design, adding bursts of playfulness and curved quirk.
