If you got your hands on either the COMME des GARÇONS x NikeLab Air VaporMax or the in-house all-black colorway, congratulations, you're in rare company. But as the sneaker has now made its way to the Swoosh's NIKEiD design platform as of today, here we take a side-by-side look at the two aforementioned VaporMax releases.

Most notably, CDG's coveted Air VaporMax is laceless, all while featuring black Swoosh branding alongside. Nike's in-house all-black iteration, on the other hand, welcomes traditional lacing, as well as a grey Swoosh on the side. They each note the same sock-like collar and full-length Max Air tooling underneath, in addition to a black toe bumper. On the CDG pair, you will then see COMME des GARÇONS branding where the laces would normally appear, while the tongue still bears Nike VaporMax tagging, just like the all-black set.

To get a better feel for the differences between the CDG Air VaporMax and the all-black VaporMax, simply scan through the gallery above.

Now, don't miss out on the best sneakers releasing this weekend.
