Off-White, whose many collaborations almost eclipse the label’s influence by their lonesome, is poised to drop its second reimaging of a Jordan Brand silhouette, following the AJ1 with the equally transmogrified Air Jordan 5. Arriving in kids sizes in addition, the release of the entire range has already been confirmed for All-Star Weekend as part of Nike’s 8×8 initiative, and if you’re not fortunate enough to be at the event, it looks like you’ll have a the opportunity to purchase via Nike SNKRS. In terms of its design, the pair starts with heritage in a “Black Metallic” base though it then filters through an ethos of Virgil Abloh’s making: interesting, partially translucent materials outfit the construction — marking with sections to be cut off — and the classic typed messaging speaks to the Beaverton home base as per the collaborative trend. Grab yet another look at these here, and if you’re looking to grab a set, keep your phone’s at the ready come February 15th at 11am.

The original design intention was inspired by the fact these shoes via Michael Jordan himself were originally energized with a touch of “unrealness”. In order to live up to my own expectations my take on them needed some surrealism embedded within the transaction of owning a pair just the same. This video does the rest of the long talking. Proceed with caution ⚠️✨®
