Comme des Garçons Homme Plus and Nike are taking us to the trails

Comme des Garçons Homme Plus and Nike have got together for a collaborative ACG Mountain Fly 2 Low SP. If you’re an eagle-eyed sneaker spotter, you might remember the shoe was first previewed during the Comme des Garçons Homme Plus Spring/Summer 2024 show in Paris. 

The stylish Swoosh sneaker arrives in a typically CdG palette of black, white, and two-tone black and white, featuring durable metal eyelets and a toggle lace system. Rather than relying on logo-laden hype, the latest CdG x Nike sneakers have removed the usual logo-emblazoned upper seen across the general release, opting for a subtle textured monochrome addition to the toecap. 

We have seen this subtleness in previous collaborations, such as the textured Swoosh detailed Nike Shox TL released in 2019, and last year’s collaborative Air Max Sunder SP release. The latest Comme des Garçons x Nike collaboration, much like previous styles, sees the CdG Homme Plus signature deconstruction applied to Nike’s technology-centred sneakers. The result is a tried and tested recipe for tasty trainers where fashion and comfort come together. 

Comme des Garçons and Nike have become regular collaborators, first joining forces in 1999 via Junya Watanabe for a take on the Nike Zoom Haven. The trainers are regularly shown on the runway, serving up a slice of sneaker goodness each season. Ever since its initial link-up, the two have blessed us with belter sneaker collaborations, giving us experimental archival revamps and exciting editions of new designs, with the ACG Mountain Fly serving as the latest instalment of the collaborative partnership. 

The Nike x Comme des Garçons Homme Plus ACG Mountain Fly 2 Low SP will retail from £260 and will launch exclusively on Friday, March 22, at Dover Street Market and Comme des Garçons stores globally (excluding Japan) and DSML E-SHOP. It will later be sold by Comme des Garçons’ wholesale clients.
