UPDATE: Nike has informed us that contrary to speculation, this is not a collaboration with COMME des GARÇONS; however it is a sample that will not be releasing.
Following an initial teaser, this week we get a better look at an unreleased variation of Nike's Air VaporMax, which appears to be referred to as the Air VaporMax Strap. The brand may in turn be gearing up to officially introduce the sneaker to the world courtesy of an upcoming collaboration with COMME des GARÇONS.
Here, we find the retooled shoe sans laces, featuring a notable midfoot strap. The pair then boasts an overall blacked-out look, which will no doubt be in high demand if/when it becomes available.
For now, Nike has yet to divulge any information surrounding the new CDG collaboration, but as always, check back with us for more.
Regardless, thoughts so far?
