Comme des Garçons announces the launch of Nike collaborative shoe, the Air Carnivores.
The shoes debuted in Tokyo in July 2020 during the Comme des Garçons SS21 show themed ‘Metal Outlaw’. CDG creative director, Rei Kawakubo wished to transplant the strength of metal into the clothes for this collection, one that does not yield to pressure or force. In this regard, the highly technical, supportive, and gladiatorial styling of the Air Carnivore is the ideal complement to the garments.
A beloved style, the Air Carnivore was originally released in 1993. Now, the modernised Nike x Comme des Garcons version is available in two styles: monochrome white and black, both stamped with the distinctive Comme des Garçons Homme Plus logo.
The sneakers are available in US men’s sizes 5-13 and women’s 6.5-14.5 and launch exclusively at all Comme des Garçons and Dover Street Markets globally (excluding Japan) and DSM E-Shops, followed shortly thereafter by all of Comme des Garcons’ best wholesale clients.
