Our first look at BLACK COMME des GARÇONS’ reinterpretation of Nike’s Night Track model came a few weeks back, as images of the blacked-out sneaker began generating buzz online. And now, the Swoosh has released official images of the collaborative shoe — providing us a better look at the retro runner.
The new rendition features an all-leather construction, with a smooth variation swarming much of the upper base, while patent overlays rest on the front bumper, heel and side panel Swoosh. Glitter accents found on the laces and outsole pay homage to the ‘50s, as custom car detailing and the arrival of a new music revolution began infiltrating American pop culture at a frenzied pace. The sneakers will release at Dover Street Market locations on April 27, before getting a wider release at retailers such as MEMPHIS on May 1.
In case you missed it, the Air Jordan 4 “Raptors” supposedly reveals Drake’s move to adidas.
