Editor’s Notes: Nike continues its longstanding collaboration with COMME des GARÇONS, introducing a new collaborative Night Track sneaker under the COMME des GARÇONS Black division.
The sneaker, which reminds of a more formal and sleek Waffle Racer, has already seen a release in Japan after photos made their way onto social media thanks to Japanese retailer MEMPHIS.
While the all-black getup makes it a highly versatile sneaker, the speckled laces and multicolored translucent outsole give the model enough of a kick for it to stand out from the crowd.
