Comme des Garçons is no stranger to giving Nike’s classic silhouettes an upgrade and that will continue with the Japanese fashion label and the sportswear giant’s next collaboration.

After teaming up with Swoosh subsidiary brand Converse last month for a series of new One Star styles, Comme des Garçons and Nike will soon be delivering a new Air Max 97 collaboration.

Product images of the upcoming Comme des Garçons x Nike Air Max 97 collaboration don a tonal Black-based color scheme, with the panels on the upper featuring what appear to be distressed panels throughout the shoe. . The stealthy look continues with the accompanying laces, tongue and sock liner, with the only trace of Comme des Garçons branding printed on the insole. The sneaker’s stealth theme continues with the black Air Max cushioned midsole and matching rubber outsole.

Other classic Nike silhouettes that Comme des Garçons has updated for its past collaboration with the Swoosh include several Dunk Low styles in 2020 as well as the Foamposite One last year.

While images of the project have surfaced, release details for the Comme des Garçons x Nike Air Max 97 collaboration have yet to be announced by either party involved.

In related Nike news, the NikeCraft General Purpose Shoe by Tom Sachs will release in a new colorway next week.
