Virgil Abloh‘s 2018 is poised to be his biggest year yet. Which, of course, is saying a lot when taking into consideration Abloh’s 2017 and the years that predate his last. His creative lead role at Louis Vuitton will stand as the most critical component of his new year, as just last week the Chicago native experienced his first day in the design studio of the famed fashion house.
Sneakerheads, though, are more concerned with Virgil’s ongoing Nike partnership. Earlier today, he shed some light on upcoming iterations of the Air Presto — one of the more adoring releases from “The Ten” debut collection.
Abloh officially previewed two pairs of his broken down version of the Air Presto earlier this morning. They’re both of the black and white variety featuring the same deconstructed aesthetics that made the original OFF WHITE x Nike Air Presto one of the best sneakers of 2017. In true Virgil fashion — a move that has taken over sneaker culture over the last 18 months — his signature scribbling marks the midsole while factory-like inscriptions canvas the medial siding.
Although not officially titled, it’s said this offering will be dubbed the OFF WHITE x Nike Air Presto “Polar Opposites” Pack. No release details are currently available.
