has dominated 2019 as the brand's innovative masterpiece and has already seen several collaborations breathe further creativity into the design. One such collaboration was the extremely limited and laceless COMME des GARÇONS VaporMax. Now it seems we'll be getting a general release of the laceless VaporMax, with Sneakernews reporting that there'll be a version of the CdG x Nike VaporMax dropping December 1, sans CdG branding. It'll reportedly make its way on to shelves in two colorways: black and pure platinum.
release features a full Black upper with matching tonal branding along with a stitched Swoosh logo on the sides. Perforated detailing atop its signature heel unit completes the design.
The newly introduced Grind material, which first made its way to the spotlight thanks to the vast and sought after collection, has gradually worked its way into the veins of nearly every Nike sub-label. As such, sustainability has accented pairs both visually and structurally, giving way to new takes of not only the Blazer Mid and Air Jordan 1 but also the somewhat new Daybreak Type. Recycled at nearly all points of its construction, the pair contrasts its prior appearances in both color and texture. Uppers mirror hemp in its textile, bearing various imperfections of different color all throughout the dark grey weave. Soles are more forthright with its scraps as much larger pieces are embedded at the midsole, the tread, and even the connected heel counter.
Dressed in a White, Platinum Tint, Metro Grey, and Black color scheme. This features a White Flyknit upper paired with Black and Gold contrasting accents throughout. Finishing off the design are Chinese characters on the tongues and special graphic insoles to pay tribute to the city of Shanghai.
