Yesterday, we got a first look at the Nike VaporMax for COMME des GARÇONS, which made its debut the CDG Spring 2017 runway show during Paris Fashion Week. Designer Rei Kawakubo did away with the runner's laces, creating a slip-on design in line with her idiosyncratic modernist aesthetic. The socklike Flyknit upper is nicely complemented with the standalone Nike VaporMax Air unit underneath, which is free of the secondary rubber layer that's always been present in previous Air Max styles. Offered in simple white and black colorway, the Nike VaporMax for COMME des GARÇONS will release in early 2017.
