It’s been less than a month since the passing of Virgil Abloh and already you can feel the void of his missing presence. With so many memorials, thank-yous, and tributes, it’s obvious that his legacy will continue to live on forever. As another moment of remembrance, Drake shared on his Instagram a photo of a 1-of-1 Off-White x Nike Air Force sample.
Similar to the “University Gold” and “MCA” pairs, this Nike Air Force 1 stays true to the sneaker’s classic structure, but has signature Virgil detailings for an iconic Off-White twist. The sneaker has an all-over white makeup that fills the upper, laces, and midsole. Nike’s signature Swoosh shines in metallic silver leather, with zig-zag stitching on the sides. The midsole has Virgil’s iconic quotation marks around “AIR.” The tongue has expose foam at the top with the Nike Air tag stitched to the side. The Off-White tag on the rear of the Swoosh has a blue tag, which hasn’t been seen before. On the inside of the shoe, the lining is stamped with “Sample property of Nike not for resale.”
It’s unclear if these sneakers will be released in the future, but they’re definitely something you’ll want to keep in mind. For more Nike releases and updates on all your favorite sneakers, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
