In an all-out sprint to year-end, sneaker brands are stuffing the final months of 2018 with some of their most sought-after releases. Nike, of course, doesn’t need to depend on Virgil Abloh to fill its coveted holiday calendar. But it is an option; a luxury by all accounts. They will to a certain degree, as his OFF WHITE x Nike Air Max 97 “Menta” champions the early moments of November.
Abloh’s second Air Max 97 rendering is reported to release on November 10 in an adoring and familiar “Menta” makeup. It may very well be Virgil’s “Silver Bullet.” Dressed predominately in Wolf Grey with exposed stitching and a gradient Swoosh, the gleaming silver coat rings true to the aforementioned OG colorway yet with a modern spin. The whimsical branding with “AIR” placed just at its rear joins Abloh’s calling card with a color ode to the newness of his design.
Official images of the OFF WHITE x Nike Air Max 97 “Menta” can be seen below. Nike nor Abloh have confirmed the November release date.
