Editor’s Notes: After teasing a remix of the Nike Foot Tent at last year’s Paris Fashion Week, COMME des GARÇONS has taken on another divisive Swoosh model: the Air Footscape.
Following the initial glimpse at the shoe (above), the CDG store in Berlin shared product images of the sneaker to its Instagram account, announcing its availability.
As with previous CDG x Nike releases, the shoes will first be available in limited numbers at CDG stores worldwide, as well as select retailers such as Dover Street Market, before dropping through Nike and other retailers at a later date.
Sneakerheads famously have a love-hate relationship with the sneaker, mainly due to its asymmetrical design, which was viewed as revolutionary when it first dropped back in 1996. The runner has enjoyed something of a renaissance in recent years, with Nike introducing the Woven Chukka and Magista hybrids, while Acne Studios’ popular Sofiane silhouette, released last year, appears to have taken cues from it.
