Drop Date for Nike's Laceless VaporMax
Release: 1 December 2017

Nike's new slip-on VaporMax ain’t so new. If you snapped up the CDG VaporMax earlier in the year, you might want to look away now...

Dropping December, the laceless make-up is actually the CDG VaporMax without ‘Comme des Garçons’ printed on the uppers. The tabs that once wore CDG branding are still there, they’re just blank (begging for an Abloh-esque self-customise?). Anyhow, we're definitely not complaining; from afar, you’ll be rocking exey CDG VaporMax for the price of regular VaporMax (still exey, just a little less so).

And while the release sucks all originality cred from the initial colab, we don't really mind. In ‘Pure Platinum’ and ‘Triple Black,’ the slip-on sneaker screams style – a quiet, sophisticated kind of scream. Flyknit construction lends the crazy comfort the build is known for, while ample Air does its thing underfoot.

Set a reminder below: laceless incoming.
