In a move that’s sure to send sneakerheads into a frenzy, COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS has resurrected the Nike Air Pegasus 2005, pleasing aficionados with a taste for the obscure. Nike has been riding the wave of the enduring “Y2K” trend, which has thrust vintage performance runners into the spotlight. As the 22nd iteration of Nike’s iconic “workhorse with wings,” this latest release pays homage to the past while embracing the present.
The revived Nike Air Pegasus 2005, courtesy of COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS, showcases full-length Nike Air technology and a silhouette that harkens back to the Air Tuned Max. The tongue and upper feature a porous mesh construction, swapping out the original leather panels for premium suede. Notably, the new iteration bids adieu to the breathability strips on the sides. Staying true to the fashion of COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS, the retro sole unit comes in either pristine all-white or bold all-black.
If you’re itching to cop a pair, you’re in luck. The Nike Air Pegasus 2005 by 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. Don’t stress if you miss the initial drop, as other Comme des Garçons wholesale clients will release their stock at a later date.
