COMME des GARÇONS and Nike are collaborators who can rarely do any wrong in our books. Dabbling in everything from elevated OG silhouettes to fashion-forward reprisals of less-loved models, it's a sneaker partnership made in kicks heaven.

But like a lot of the most coveted sneaker collaborations, a good deal on a lot of the output from the brands can prove hard to pin down. Fortunately, the CdG-obsessives of the Highsnobiety office can sniff out some subtle branding a mile off, and here we bring you some of our very favorites.

A partnership of nearly two decades now, the collaborations between Nike and COMME des GARÇONS have been hugely responsible for consolidating the gap between streetwear and high fashion. Under the direction of Rei Kawakubo and her team, CdG has demonstrated time and time again its aptness for a unique interpretation of Nike's vast archive.

It's worth noting too, that aside from the industry insiders who know best, many of CdG and Nike's past collaborations have been slept on by the masses to begin with, often resulting in a high resell value down the line once they've been whipped up by those in-the-know and your average sneakerhead has just caught onto how good they were.

Take a look at some key silhouettes of recent times below, and start shopping for rotation additions that have some serious fashion appeal.

Nike x COMME des GARÇONS Air Presto Foot Tent

Not like any other Presto you've seen before, COMME des GARÇONS and Nike's most recent release is inspired by an actual tent, incorporating tiny fiberglass poles that allow it to "float" above the foot by a few millimeters.

First debuted during Paris Fashion Week SS19, the foot tent is an interesting spin on one of sneaker design legend Tinker Hatfield's biggest ever flops in 2002, with the idea being to optimize breathability by never having the shoe touch the wearer's foot. Each colorway can still be copped at Browns, so don't sleep if you want to avoid the resale price hike down the line.

Nike x COMME des GARÇONS Air Max 180

Dropping in three bright, retro colorways in early 2018, the CdG Air Max 180 has been a mainstay of sneaker street style round-ups at fashion weeks ever since.

First debuted at the label's SS18 runway show in Paris, our pick is the Barbie-eque pink and bright white iteration, which can be secured at resale platform Stadium Goods for marginally less than it first arrived at retail.

Nike x COMME des GARÇONS Air Mowabb

The Mowabb is one of those kicks that tends to reemerge at retail once in a blue moon, but blink and you miss it – especially the white colorway. A revamp of Nike ACG's trail-ready sneaker, the CdG version is dressed up in a super-soft micro-suede with a minimalist over-all design.

With no news of any restocks happening soon, your best bet on securing your pair is now on the secondary market place, where if you're lucky, you'll manage to pin down your size at approximately what they retailed for – for now at least.

Nike x Supreme x COMME des GARÇONS Air Force 1

Add Supreme into the mix with two already coveted collaborators and we were always going to have some retail upsets on this Air Force 1. With a split-in-half design featuring COMME des GARÇONS x Supreme text at the heel, the black leather kicks were made exclusively available at Supreme, so the Ls came thick and fast.

That said, the resale price hike has hitherto not been as unreasonable as many at Highsnobiety HQ first forecast. Resale lows at StockX have come in at just $248 on rare occasions, though more recently they've tended to go for at least double their initial $165 price tag.

Nike x COMME des GARÇONS Dunk Hi

Nike x CdG was on the see-through flex way before it Virgil Abloh was turning RIMOWA suitcases transparent. Another silhouette to get its first outing in a Paris runway show, the deep black and cream upper is met with transparent PVC panels on its sides, and comes with the usual Swoosh branding plus "CDG" lettering at the heel.

If you slept on these, you'll pay the price, now coming with an average price premium of 124 percent on their initial $290 price tag back in February ’17. If you've got the cash to splash though, it's easy to see how these could be the highlight of your rotation.
