COMME des GARÇONS and Nike yet have another sneaker collaboration this time using the classic Nike Shox Silhouette. Specifically, the COMME des GARÇONS x Nike Shox TL was first revealed at CDG’s spring-summer 2019 runway showcase which happened at the end of 2018.
COMME des GARÇONS x Nike Shox collab comes in two colourways, “Triple White” and “Triple Black” which both feature CDG x Nike branding on the tongue and the Shox cushioning, there is also frayed detailing on the Nike swoosh, heel and toe box. The kicks also come equipped with gigantic Cuban-linked which is finished with a huge “COMME des Garcons” logo on the front. There’s a metallic silver chain for the “Triple White” colourway and a gold chain for the “Triple Black” colourway that wrap around the tongue and through the Shox tooling. The upper is durable and the shoe becomes immediately recognisable due to its spring sole system that gives the shoe added comfort and a smoother step.
