Nike has officially unveiled Comme Des Garcons Nike VaporMax collaboration that was debuted during the CDG Paris Spring 2017 Collection runway show.
The lace-lees sneaker, the Nike Air VaporMax, which were designed by CDG founder Rei Kawakubo come dressed in either a Black and/or White color options.
Whereas previous Air units had to be insulated by a secondary rubber layer for protection, new technologies allow the incorporation of the Air and exterior layer into one holistic, standalone Nike VaporMax Air unit. The new innovation thus enables designers to create a powerful visual appearance of walking on air. In this expression, the the Flyknit upper modified was to reflect Kawakubo’s vision of a slip-on version of the Vapormax.
