It always seems like Virgil Abloh and Nike are working on multiple projects at once. And even before the official debut of the designer’s Air Jordan 2, we’re catching wind of yet another collaboration: a newly revealed Air Force 1 Mid.
Though its details are still under wraps, the pair was just unveiled in part on IG–specifically, its medial profile. Besides the usual Helvetica text, which has dressed every one of the label’s collaborations thus far, the design is a heavy departure from past takes on the silhouette. Throughout the upper, leathers are replaced for a texture-heavy synthetic that almost appears woven. A second lace unit accents atop in grey; the Swoosh is entirely see-through, almost invisible; and the heel/strap is covered in a grid pattern. And while these are mostly par for the course, the tooling is quite the opposite, opting for a warped exterior that’s overlaid with additional, multi-colored molds.
Enjoy a quick peek at the Off-White x Air Force 1 here and sit tight for further details.
