In a move that’s about to make sneakerheads lose their minds, COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS has brought back the iconic Nike Air Pegasus 2005, making all the enthusiasts with a taste for the exotic jump for joy. Nike has been riding the wave of the enduring “Y2K” trend, which has catapulted vintage performance runners into the limelight. As the 22nd installment of Nike’s legendary “workhorse with wings,” this latest release pays tribute to the past while embracing the present.
Thanks to the resurrection by COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS, the revitalized Nike Air Pegasus 2005 showcases full-length Nike Air technology and a silhouette that harks back to the Air Tuned Max. Gone are the breathability strips on the sides, replaced by a tongue and upper featuring a porous mesh construction that swaps out the original leather panels for premium suede. But let’s not forget the pièce de résistance – the retro sole unit, available in either pristine all-white or daring all-black, staying true to COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS’s fashion sensibility.
If you’re dying to get your hands on a pair, you’re in for a treat. The Nike Air Pegasus 2005 collaboration with COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS is now exclusively available at Comme des Garçons and Dover Street Market stores worldwide, as well as online via the DSM E-SHOPs. And don’t stress if you miss out on the initial drop, as other Comme des Garçons retailers will later release their stock.
But wait, there’s more! Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming release of the Air Jordan 11 “Gratitude” in early December for more drool-worthy sneaker news.
Now, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty. The Nike Air Pegasus 2005 collaboration between Comme des Garçons and Nike comes with a price tag of $200. The highly anticipated release is scheduled for October 6th, 2023 (Friday). Make sure to follow @kicksfinder on Twitter for real-time updates during the drop – you won’t want to miss out.
And for all you North American sneakerheads out there, rejoice! The release will also be available in your region on October 6th, 2023 (Friday).
So, whether you’re a die-hard COMME des GARÇONS fan or simply someone who appreciates the magic that comes from a stellar sneaker collaboration, mark your calendars and get ready to snag a pair of these reinvigorated kicks from the illustrious Nike Air Pegasus collection.
