Nike and Virgil Abloh officially opened doors to “The Ten” in New York City, a massive space in the heart of the Financial District. Inside the RSVP only venue is an open-air art exhibit of sorts showcasing all ten of Virgil Abloh’s designs, with each installation telling the story of the shoe’s iconic history and influence in street culture. To kick off the event, Nike hosted an open discussion with Virgil Abloh and Andy Caine with topics ranging from artistic influence to the most recent Instagram follows.
Registration for “The Ten” in NYC is open through Friday while spots are available. The space will move on to London from September 14th-17th.
Currently, the first five of “The Ten” (Air Jordan 1, Blazer, Air Presto, Air Max 90, Vapormax) will be released in NYC, London, Milan, and Paris through a staggered schedule. The entire set (Hyperdunk 2017, Air Force 1, Chuck Taylor, Air Max 97, and Zoom Fly) will release in November.
