Virgil Abloh explored a wide range of techniques, styles, and motifs up to his unfortunate passing. And when he used the Air Force 1 to bridge the gap between Louis Vuitton and Nike, the designer dressed the much-beloved silhouette in graffiti. Abloh’s vandalism would not end there, evidently, as he’s also left his tag atop this Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid sample.
Compared to what released earlier this year, this sample is entirely different in its construction. Gone are the textile panels, replaced by leather throughout the entire upper. Moreover, the colorway itself is much more simple, as white runs across almost every part of the shoe, including the strap and warped, spike-adorned sole unit. The side, however, features the above-mentioned graffiti, which spells out “OFF-WHITE” against a nebulous background.
Enjoy a close-up look at this Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid sample right here. At the time of writing this, it’s unconfirmed whether we’ll be seeing this pair at retail. For now, sit tight and await future updates.
In other news, the Air Jordan 1 Lost And Found releases this November.
