As previously seen on basketball legend LeBron James during the NBA Finals, it seems official imagery of the next Off-White™-branded, Virgil Abloh-designed collaboration with Nike has been revealed.

The photos are fairly in-line with those seen on LBJ in which the upper is now a classic white in smooth leather, opposite to the MoMA Black exclusive pair that released in January. The “AIR” writing on the midsole appears in contrasting black print, while the trademark neon orange tab is found sewn into the retooled metallic silver Swoosh — notice how it’s also slightly misaligned with the perforations of the original Nike Swoosh location. On the back, a gloss sealing stripe covers the rear tab down to the lower heel, while the interior is lined with light blue exposed foam padding and an Off-White™ and Nike co-branded insole. Finally, a white branding tag replaces last year’s red edition.

While no confirmed release date is currently present, sneakerheads are speculating a summer release, if not shortly before. If upcoming hyped Jordans are on your radar, check out the potential details for the UNC colorway of the Virgil Abloh x Air Jordan 1.
