Today marks the arrival of Nike’s “OFF CAMPUS” event in collaboration with Virgil Abloh for the duo’s “TEN ICONS RECONSTRUCTED” launch. Right before things get underway at 11 a.m. EST, Virgil took to both Off-White™ and his personal Instagram account to show off samples of the Air Jordan 1 and Blazer. In the photos, he clearly pinpoints minute details that took countless repetitions, 1,000+, to get the way he wanted including the upper section of the AJ1 and everything from the material choice to the second Swoosh delete on the Blazer.
Fans who aren’t able to attend the events at 23 Wall Street this week can watch the live stream today at 11 a.m. on Nike’s website. In addition to “OFF CAMPUS,” NikeLab 21M will host a custom sneaker experience called “EXTRA CREDIT” to promote the launch of the campaign. Check out the samples below and keep an eye out for the rest of this week’s hottest sneaker releases.
