COMME des GARCONS Nike Air Max 97 DX6932-002

No season is complete without the contribution of COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS, whose collaborations with Nike often parade alongside the main garments. And earlier this year, the Japanese label took advantage of Paris Fashion Week to show off two understated colorways of the Air Max 97, the darker of which has just surfaced via official images.

While past works – think: the Air Max 95 and Air Force 1 – have almost completely dismantled their original shapes, the upcoming COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS x Nike Air Max 97 chooses to pay homage to the foundation laid by designer Christian Tresser. Here, the build itself, from panels to materials, is relatively untouched, mirroring the overall silhouette of previous versions of the classic. Leather overlays throughout the upper, however, feature a unique treatment, whose patina is easy to mistake for suede at a quick glance.

Finished with co-branded insoles, CdG’s latest pair of Nikes are set to release this Fall/Winter, likely on Dover Street Market ahead of a wider global release.

Besides, the Cactus Plant Flea Market Dunk Low Grinch has also just been unveiled in hand.
