With New York Fashion Week around the bend, outside of the runway, Virgil Abloh and Nike’s 10 collaborative sneakers — “THE TEN” — are and will stay arguably the hottest topic. With reservations to the opening event immediately filling up, Nike has made available details to all of the NIKE INC. c/o Virgil Abloh “OFF CAMPUS” events that will be taking place in NYC at 23 Wall Street.

Set to occur between September 6-8, the hands-on events and talks will kick off with a conversation on design and collaboration to shed light on the path that led to the collection. Dubbed “THE TEN: A Crash Course,” it will be moderated by journalist Phoebe Lovatt and feature Virgil himself and Andy Caine, VP of Nike footwear design. In between, industry juggernauts like Don C, Eric Koston, Shanye Oliver, Tremaine Emory, Heron Preston and others will join in on various topics such as the future of the Jordan effect, the influence of the Air Force 1, Air Max 97, Presto, Blazer, Hyperdunk, and Chucks in addition to offering hands-on experiences with customizing said sneakers and new and vintage Nike tees.
