With the final remnants of “The Ten” releasing within the first quarter of 2019, Virgil Abloh is — at least for the moment — shifting his focus back to in-house ambition.
Off-White footwear now resides in pole position, which lends greater cultural emphasis to budding Off-White drops.
The chunky goodness of the aptly titled ODSY-1000 trends heavily both in what popped last year and what will remain this year. Both seeking and finding elements of a trail sneaker juxtaposed against retro skate aesthetics, Abloh persists in his ability to blend genres through the commonality they share.
Translucent components lend credence to the contemporary design while the high-arching, rigged outsole adds stance to Abloh’s new creation.
A closer view of the first two colorways of the Off-White ODSY-1000 can be seen below.
