The Nike Comme des Garçons Air Force 1 Mid Drops on October 23 at Dover Street Market
In what seems to be another piece of good news for sneakerheads in Singapore, the Nike Comme des Garcons Air Force 1 Mid will officially be launched in-store at Dover Street Market Singapore and online tomorrow. The shoes were first unveiled during Paris Fashion Week in March 2020 at the Comme des Garçons fall-winter 2020 runway show.
Comme des Garçons' Rei Kawakubo took the well-loved Nike classic and had fun with it by injecting her signature style and design elements while embracing the idea that it wasn’t possible to create something totally new. Kawakubo also chose the shoes because of how much they’re revered in the sneaker universe.
The sneakers come in two classic Air Force 1 shades: white and black. The two customised styles feature panelled cut-outs with raw edges on the shoe’s leather exterior, giving it a distinct look that also plays into the CDG’s fall-winter 2020 collection’s name, Neo Future.
Each pair features the Nike Air logo on the heels and is given the Comme des Garçons touch with the Japanese label’s name embossed on the ankle straps using contrasting colours. The effect is both textured and a new application for the Air Force 1s.

News of this Air Force 1 remix has thrilled fans over the past few months and its arrival is touted as the biggest sneakers release of the week.
For those keen on copping a pair (whether it’s for yourself or your hypebae), the Nike Comme des Garçons Air Force 1 Mids are available in US women’s sizes 5-7.5 and men’s sizes 8-13.
They will be available tomorrow in-store at Dover Street Market Singapore and on its e-shop.
