You’d be forgiven for expecting another Comme des Garçons and Nike collaboration to result in something similar to the recent Dunk High: a standout, PVC-lined high-top. But you’d be completely wrong.

The pair’s latest release is an (almost) all-black-errthang update of the classic Air Pegasus, with the stripped-back colourway flanked only by bold CDG branding to the heel. No translucent panelling, no contrast swoosh, no coloured laces – just good, honest minimalism.

If previous exercises in simple CDG slogans are anything to go by (we all remember that Commes coach jacket), you can expect this latest venture to fly.

The Comme des Garçons x Nike Air Pegasus 83 is available now at Dover Street Market stores worldwide, price tbc.
