Oh my days. Still trying to gather ourselves after yesterday’s fevered drop of the COMME des GARÇONS x NikeLab Dunk High “Clear,” sources now suggest that tomorrow will see the release of the long-anticipated COMME des GARÇONS x NikeLab Air VaporMax.
We first peeped the sneaker way back in October, and the hype has been gathering pace ever since. Appropriately, the drop comes as New York Fashion Week’s 2017 edition gets underway, which was no doubt an intentional move.
The ultra-modern sneaker boasts a radical new look and is all about taking off the load. New technologies which incorporate additional air into the unit replace the traditional foam midsole, while the upper is composed entirely of Flyknit. Basically, they’re like clouds for your feet.

From what we can assume so far, the creps will arrive in black and white colorways. Tomorrow we’ll find out for certain.
Be sure to stay posted for further info on stockists and release times, if there are any. Currently, we’re hearing the sneaker will release at an invite-only event somewhere in NYC.
Until then, be sure to browse COMME des GARÇONS’ Homme’s new military-inspired FW17 collection.
