Nike Comme des Garçons Air Force 1 debuted in March 2020, during the Comme des Garçons FW’20 show themed ‘Neo Future.’

Rei Kawakubo embraced the idea that it is not possible to make something completely new, therefore choosing to look within the world of Comme des Garçons for inspiration. In choosing the Air Force 1 Mid, Kawakubo similarly selected a beloved Nike classic that is revered for the unique place it holds in the sneaker cannon: the pinnacle expression of sport and street.

The two customized styles feature paneled cut-outs with raw edges on the shoe’s leather exterior and Comme des Garçons embossed on its proprioceptors belt – the effect is both textured and a new application for the AF1.

Offered in black and white, the sneakers are available in US men’s sizes 5-13. The AF1 Mid launches exclusively at all Comme des Garçons and Dover Street Markets globally and DSM E-SHOPs retailing for 270€.
