NikeLab x COMME des GARÇONS Dunk Hi “Clear”

 In News, Nike

Better wear clean socks because NikeLab is joining forces with fashion label COMME des GARÇONS to update the classic Dunk Hi with a transparent upper.

That’s right, transparent: The “invisible shoes” add clear PVC vamp, quarter, tongue, and collar sections for a see-through effect paired with black leather overlays and swoosh. Holes on the medial quarter and vamp provide ventilation.

Similar to last year’s clear-soled VaporMax created with COMME des GARÇONS, which debuted at a fashion event last October, the clear Dunk Hi was first teased at designer Rei Kawakubo’s Spring ’17 runway show.

The release is part of a bigger Nike push for this year’s New York Fashion Week. Along with a set of collaborators, Nike will activate locations throughout the Big Apple with exclusive releases.

Releases include the buttery NikeLab x Riccardo Tisci Dunk Lux Chukka.

Also the Nike Sportswear 5 Decades of Basketball collection created with KITH, featuring tan-colored collabo versions of the Air Foamposite Pro, Zoom Generation, Air Force 1 Sport Lux, Blazer Studio Low, and the Flight Bonafide.

And not to forget the Harlem-themed Nike Air Force 1 x VLONE and an early release of the Nike Air Force 1 Upstep “Glass Slipper”. It’s a heavy line-up, view Nike’s NYFW Heat Map here in your browser.

Kicking things off, the NikeLab x COMME des GARÇONS Dunk Hi “Clear” will go on sale tomorrow, February 8, exclusively at COMME des GARÇONS New York. There will also be a highly limited supply of VaporMax’s.
