Aside from producing eclectic garment collections season after season through his Off-White™ imprint, Virgil Abloh has effectively made his mark in the sneaker realm as well — linking up with Nike to help formulate one of the most noteworthy collaborations in recent memory. While factoring in the Air Jordan 1s immeasurable nostalgic value, the revered artist uncovered a means to up the artistic narrative, by hand-inking the midsole and gifting it to those he considers friends and family.
