Recently observed the dispatch of the main combine of shoes from NIKE’s most recent joint effort with the japanese fashion house comme des garçons, and a moment configuration is set to drop tomorrow. the NIKElab and comme des garçons gathering was reviewed back in october without a set release date, however the foreseen drop concurs helpfully with 2017’s new york design week fall/winter 2017.
The following pair to hit stores will be the comme des garçons x NIKElab air vapormax—another style debuting with this collaboration right around a year after nike reviewed the model last walk. The air vapormax expands on the plan of the commended air max 1 runner, a shoe that was purportedly impacted by the draftsman renzo piano’s middle georges pompidou in paris. The possibility of the air max is to demonstrate an inside air rise through a reasonable window in the sole of the shoe. This year, the exemplary model commends its 30th birthday.
While past air bubbles must be protected by an elastic layer for insurance, the vapormax joins the air pocket and outside layer and appends the entire unit to the flyknit body of the shoe to create a more responsive outline. The coordinated effort from NIKElab and comme des garçons sees the tennis shoe rendered a slip-on, with a monocrome shading palette and moderate outline.
