The COMME Des GARÇONS version of the Nike VaporMax is no doubt the most sought-after version of the shoe yet, and it looks like there may be another version on the way. Images recently leaked of a second VaporMax by CDG, which also appears to feature a laceless slip-on design, but modifies a few details. As you can see, the main difference is an additional synthetic film wrapping the upper that extends up the midfoot with a Swoosh in negative space. This brief look is all the info we have so far, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more details on the possible new VaporMax collaboration by COMME Des GARÇONS.

The Nike VaporMax has been a stellar addition to Nike’s lineup and has been one of the most relevant Swoosh models since being introduced. The restructured visible air outsole takes a 30-year-old technology and alters it like never before getting rid of the midsole entirely so you can ‘walk on air’. Nike then added their signature Flyknit to the upper for a futuristic ride that anybody can get behind. Now the original VaporMax “Pure Platinum” colorway, one of the most popular installments to date given its fairly new “OG” status, is returning to European retailers on August 23rd. The cleanNike VaporMax Pure Platinum released to reset the whole Nike signature colorway palette, replacing the vibrant Volt of the 2010s with a simpler, more refined aesthetic. If you missed out on the Pure Platinum VaporMax, next month will be the perfect time to try again.
One of the most anticipated releases of the year thus far is headed to Los Angeles early. The CLOT Nike VaporMax features a near Infrared colorway featuring that dynamic Flyknit upper and visible air unit and will be available today and tomorrow at a special LA pop-up location known as Back Alley Void at 801 Mateo St. There are only limited quantities available throughout the two day stretch according to Edison Chen, so if you’re in Los Angeles, you better act fast. The CLOT x Nike VaporMax will then drop in Europe on July 28th with a later US release coming shortly there after. Stay tuned for more details to come right here on Sneaker News.
