Just last week, we previewed an image of a white Air VaporMax model — alluding to a new venture between Virgil Abloh and Nike. Already flipping the sneaker world on its head with the previously launched Virgil Abloh x Nike’s “The Ten” collection, this rumored model would further solidify the bond between high fashion and footwear. New to our pages is this black iteration that combines creative elements from both brands.
Some key defining characteristics include the Off-White™-centric exposed stitching, “SHOELACES” & “AIR” text, along with the infamous zip tie, while Nike adds its trademark Swoosh logo, Flyknit construction and signature VaporMax sole unit to the party. Although release details have still yet to be confirmed, be sure to check back for future updates.
