Comme des Garcons's Nike shoe hits stores in US
today Feb 8, 2017
After unveiling their collaborative shoe design for Nike last June in Paris, Comme des Garçons has stocked the "invisible shoes," so-called for their partially transparent uppers, at their stores in New York.
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's tale of the emperor's new clothes, the shoe is designer Rei Kawakubo's re-interpretation of the story in design form.
The shoe also debuted within a collection that made a statement about information overload and over-sharing in the 21st century.
The NikeLab Dunk Hi X Comme des Garcons retains the Dunk's leather overlay in black, over a translucent tpu vamp, quarter, tongue and collar revealing foam underneath the tongue and collar. Holes on the medial quarter and vamp provide ventilation.
The shoe launches February 8 exclusively at Comme des Garçons New York.
