Considering the avant-garde design sensibility of Rei Kawakubo, founder and creative director of COMME des GARÇONS, it's no surprise that a Nike collaboration with the cutting-edge Japanese label would use a singularly innovative silhouette. That model is the Nike Air VaporMax, one of the stars of Nike's Innovation Summit from earlier in the year. The distinguishing feature of the futuristic runner is the "holistic" VaporMax Air unit, which supports a lightweight Flyknit upper delivering a sock-like fit. At her runway show during Paris Fashion Week, Kawakubo sent five of her models onto the runway, shod in an all-black, laceless versions of the shoe. Stay tuned for additional information and word on a potential release date, likely occurring in Spring 2017.

Release Date: February 2017
