An old Nike model has been dusted off from the archives for a special collaboration with the fashion brand COMME des GARÇONS. The brands have designed two colorways on the Nike Air Carnivore. Appropriately for CDG's aesthetic, a black and a white version were created. Check out the COMME des GARÇONS x Nike Air Carnivore collab below, which is expected to release in May 2021!

Nike Air Carnivore

The Nike Air Carnivore was first released in 1993. The sneaker was intended as a hardcore cross shoe and featured the latest Swoosh technology of the time. The high neoprene sneakers, or almost booties, had thick Air soles and no laces. The sneaker also had a striking colour combination, which gives it a unique appearance.

COMME des GARÇONS x Nike Air Carnivore

The designs of the Air Carnivore colorways have been kept fairly quiet. The sneakers have an all-black and an all-white design. This gives them a clean look and all the attention goes to the model. The straps stand out, on the lace-less design. For example, the large strap with the Nike logo attracts a lot of attention. Besides this logo, the COMME des GARÇONS Plus Homme logo is also visible on the heels.
