Nike has a laundry list of footwear collaborators that it tends to consistently tap every year, and one of those is COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS. Earlier this year, the two joined forces on the niche Air Carnivore silhouette, and now both parties are aligning again this Fall to push out a two-pronged capsule atop the iconic Nike Air Foamposite One. CDG certainly isn’t the first imprint to collaboration on this retro basketball sneaker, but one can argue that they took its design presentation to a whole other level by reimagining its upper.

Air Foamposite Ones are known for its signature ribbed base layers, but the Japanese imprint opted to take a different direction by fashioning the side walls and lower heels to mimic that of an elegantly organized zen garden. White and black colorways are included in this assemblage, the former of which we have a detailed perspective of. A majority of the shoe is made up of angelic finishes while notes of black show up on the heel branding that states “COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS,” carbon fiber molds that are situated on the lower mid-foot and the “AIR” badges that are embedded into the tongues.

Check out close-up shots of the kicks above, and note that these are expected to release during November for $520 USD.

CDG and Nike also have Air Sunder Max collaborations dropping in 2022.
