The COMME des GARÇONS x Nike Shox TL was originally spotted at its Spring/Summer 2019 Paris Fashion Week show and now, the reworked retro silhouette has finally got an official release date. After dropping in CDG stockists in Japan, the highly-anticipated collaborative pair now gets a closer look.
COMME des GARÇONS has given the Nike Shox TL an all-black upper, distressing the Swoosh branding and giving the entire textile upper and tongue a cut-and-sew, frayed finish. Co-branding is placed upon the tongue in contrasting white text, while the sneaker’s detachable jewelry piece stands out in gold across the vamp section.
The detachable chain is pieced together like a necklace and locks between the Shox TL’s futuristic and highly cushioned sole unit. Take a look at the triple black iteration above and pick up both this pair and the all-white and silver version at COMME des GARÇONS stockists worldwide for approximately $357 USD on June 13. Both pairs are currently available at the CDG Aoyama store as well as CDG locations across Japan and Dover Street Market Ginza.
