Before Pyrex Vision popped off or Off-White went up, Virgil Abloh was known in the Nike offices thanks to his work with Kanye West on the Nike Air Yeezy projects. The last of which proved to be the “Red October” Yeezy 2 which released long after Kanye left the Swoosh but before Virgil became the Beaverton brand’s go-to collaborator.
An Off-White x Nike Air Max 90 sample in triple-red sees a full circle sneaker of sorts.
Showcased at the MCA Chicago event, this pair packs the same deconstructed styling as retail releases from “The 10” with the power palette proving all the more intriguing.
Translucent tooling adds depth to the triple-red variation with classic stamping adding identity.
Would you cop these if released? Well, recent word suggests they might. According to House of Heat, a pair eerily similar in color code is slated to drop in Summer of 2020.
Is it going to be a hot summer? Stay tuned for updates.
