Comme des Garçons’ Nike Air Force 1 Mids Are Dropping Soon…

…and you know you don’t want to miss out on them.

Make some room in your shoe closet, sneaker heads, because Comme des Garçons are about to drop their avant grade rendition of the Nike Air Force 1 Mids that we know and love.

Revealed on the runway at Paris Fashion Week for CDG’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection, the sneakers are set to be released in just a few days on October 23rd.  Starting at 250 pounds, or about $325, these kicks will be available for purchase both online and in-person at CDG locations as well as Dover Street Market.

Available in black and white, these leather sneakers boast classic CDG branding, giving off a bold edge to the minimal color palette. The key features of this collab are all in the surplus edges around the laces, the heel, the strap, the toe box, and of course, around the classic Nike swoosh. The excess leather in these areas gives off an unfinished, deconstructed feel, though they’re expertly crafted and meticulously made.

While there’s a precision and refinement to these sneakers, the surplus leather feels reminiscent of upcycled clothes and accessories, common themes in modern trends and streetwear. These CDG x Nikes offer a versatility that’s popular in streetwear today, they can truly be worn with any statement outfit you choose, or thrown on in a more casual look for a stylish edge.

All of these details bring the classic Nike Air Force 1 Mids into another dimension, the patchwork elements an encouragement of creativity for whoever will wear them.
