A Closer Look at the COMME des GARÇONS x Air Jordan 1

The growing number of COMME des GARÇONS x Nike collaborations continues to widen as Paris Fashion Week has vindicated another with Jordan Brand.

Spotted during the HOMME Plus fall/winter 2019 presentation, Rei Kawakubo views the classic Air Jordan 1 through a sophisticated gaze adding straps and buckles to the sport-first, lifestyle-driven silhouette.

This holistic re-shaping of the Air Jordan 1 represents one of its boldest transformations in recent memory. Alongside the top strap and its decorative loops that circle the ankle collar, extended tongue construction gives the shoe a heightened stance that lingers upwards to the chin.

The black and white colorways of this COMME des GARÇONS HOMME Plus x Air Jordan 1 are covered in premium leather and highlight contemporary vision from Kawakubo new to the 1985 classic.

Now, timing out with Paris Fashion Week the CDG x Air Jordan 1 comes into clearer view.

When will these drop? On August 2nd, pairs popped up at Dover Street Market NYC and the CDG NYC flagship store.

Will they drop again?

Thankfully, our friends at Hypebeast have provided our best look at the shoe yet. They also state that a wider release is anticipated for September.

Blessed in both black and white, peep ’em below.

Still, official release details evade us.

Keep it locked for updates.
