Comme des Garçon PLAY X Converse Milk Canvas Chuck Taylor 1970s High-Tops
White chucks are an iconic look. This Comme des Garçon collab takes a vintage look and adds something modern. A uniform white from the laces, tongue and canvas uppers to the toe box and out sole. The white of the midsole serves to amplify the red of the Comme des Garçon logo where it sharply cuts it of. The sharp black line from the bottom of the heel up to the heel tab off sets the white nicely.

Nike Women’s Acorra Suede Sneakerboots
The pairing of mustard yellow and white is a nice, muted blend. Mustard is dominant on the suede upper and the outsole. This is offset by the white of the midsole, laces heel tab and swoosh. A black horizontal line along the heel is a little more to draw the eye to the shoe.

Myswear Carnaby Hi-top Sneakers
The Carnaby is a minimalist style shoe with little stitching visible. This is important to make the metallic silver that dominates the upper work well. The chunky white sole blends well and lets the eye be drawn to the pastel pink of the toe box and tongue.

Nike Women Skinny Dunks High Top Paule Marrot Swallow Feather
The simple bird patterning across the black upper is a nice look. It’s improved by contrasting it with the uniform white of the swoosh, laces and midsole. The heel tab and tongue label add to this. A thin line of grey bought by the outsole is the last piece of the puzzle to bring the look together.

Calvin Klein Jeans Zabrina Black Canvas Hi Top Trainers
The chunky white of the out and midsole draws your eye to the black upper of this shoe. It’s asking you to look at the Calvin Klein logo dashed across the side of the upper. A stylistically simple shoe it brings a great, versatile look with designer credibility.
