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.
