Comme Des Garcons Gets its Sneaker on at NYFW
Coinciding with New York Fashion Week, Comme Des Garcons launched a trio of collaborative Nike sneakers at their New York City flagship in Chelsea. The three silhouettes—the Dunk, VaporMax, and Air Moc—were teased throughout various CDG presentations during the S/S 2017 show cycle, however there was no confirmed release date until last week. The launch is part of a barrage of Nike events, including a Harlem centric pop-up by streetwear brand VLONE and the unveiling of the new NikeLab space at high-end retailer Bergdorf Goodman, happening throughout the week.
As it tends to go with these collaborations, the CDG sneakers sold out day of. For those still inching to get their hands on a pair though, there is still limited availability at Dover Street Market locations. Get ‘em while you can.
