High fashion institution COMME des GARCONS is no stranger to an avant-garde piece, though while many of their recent collaborative endeavors have leaned closer to the minimal end of the spectrum, these recently unveiled Air Jordan 1s are anything but. Almost completely modifying the original likeness, the pair arrives with a massive strap across its top line, embellished by various metallic loops, rivets, as well as a silver buckle that harks quite affectionately to leather double riders. Overlays, stitching, sole units, and everything in between opt between a white or black tone singularly, with no other form of color, save for its silver hardware, contrasting against the various constructions. COMME des GARCONS HOMME PLUS, one of the many branches of the Japanese powerhouse, brands tongue while the Wings logo and iconic Jumpman rest along the ankle flaps and heel, respectively. Grab the best look yet at the upcoming CDG x Jordan 1 below and keep it locked in as more details arise on their official release.

Update 9/9/19: After being made available in London last month, the CDG HOMME PLUS x Air Jordan 1 will release exclusively at Dover Street Market NY/the DSM webstore on September 14th.
