Comme des Garcons Debuts a Goth Take on Air Jordans at Paris Fashion Week Men’s

As of late, fashion week has become as much about the footwear as it is about the garments worn by the models. Case in point: the most talked-about shoes from Paris Fashion Week Men’s. Adding to the list for fall ’19 is a collab between Rei Kawakubo’s Comme des Garçons and Jordan Brand.

A close-up image comes courtesy of @godmeetsfashion on Instagram, which reveals a dark rendition of the classic Air Jordan 1 model that was seen during the fashion label’s Homme Plus runway show on Jan. 18. The Air Jordan 1 Retro Strap High sneakers are treated to a goth, punk rock aesthetic through belted ankle straps, pierced hoops and an exaggerated tongue.

As for the colorways, there are two tonal white and black versions, with both featuring premium leather uppers.
