UPDATE: Comme Des Garçons are the latest esteemed brand to lend their vision to the Air Force 1, and the result has dropped with minimum fanfare. A post on their Instagram has the shoes in stock at their Rue de Faubourg Saint-Honoré flagship store in Paris, but you can bet they won't be there for long.
The Nike Air Force 1 has been reworked lately by some pretty big names, resulting in a heavy bombardment of special releases. The latest mind to adopt the AF1 as the basis for a uniquely co-branded shoe is Rei Kawakubo’s Comme Des Garçons. The forefoot of the shoe has been plastered with a strip displaying the brands iconic heart logo. It’s unclear as to whether or not the colab is an official deal, but the shoes are retailing in both CDG and Dover Street Market.
The Comme Des Garçons x Nike Air Force 1 is available now at select Comme stores, including the flagship on Rue de Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
