Despite passing away in November 2021, Virgil Abloh continues being present in the sneaker space. In addition to driving countless sales on the after-market thanks to his Off-White sneaker collaborations, the late Illinois-native is further expanding NIKE, Inc.’s design language.
Recently, a green-colored Air Force 1 Mid appeared with typical Off-White details: zip-ties, contrasting tabs at the profile swooshes and “deconstructed” builds. The upcoming pair resembles the ultra-exclusive low-top Air Force 1 pairs that Abloh prepped for both the Brooklyn Museum and Louis Vuitton before passing. Although the latest Off-White Nikes feature some of Abloh’s signature touches, they also don a previously-unseen logo of a candle holder at the lateral heel, an “OFF” in Virgil’s handwriting on the right heel, and a graffiti-style “AIR” at the tongue. The shoes’ morphed sole unit exposes a Air Max unit, building on the thought process behind the original “The Ten” collection that debuted in 2017.
Enjoy a first-look at the official images and await a drop on Nike SNKRS details as the year continues. For more from under the NIKE, Inc. umbrella, check out all upcoming Air Jordan 4 releases.
