Though Virgil Abloh has recently started his artistic director of menswear gig over at Louis Vuitton, the designer is still keeping busy with his Off-White™ label.

Taking to social media earlier today, Abloh revealed a set of custom Off-White™ x Nike Goalkeeper Mercurial Touch gloves, the first-ever goalkeeper gloves created in collaboration between the duo. The gloves were created and sent to England goalkeepers Joe Hart of West Ham United (currently on loan from Manchester City) and Jordan Pickford of Everton.

The mostly white gloves have been decorated with orange cuffs and Off-White™’s signature design elements from a “LOGO” over the top of the hand, an X-covered palm, and stamp-text branding along the first finger. In addition to the printed branding, the gloves also feature handwritten elements such as “HART” and “PICKFORD” along with their player number and the year. Next to the gloves, a small note confirming the name and hand size of the goalkeeper can be seen.

So far this colorway on the Nike Goalkeeper Mercurial Touch gloves has never been seen before, suggesting a possible World Cup edition. It is not known yet if Joe Hart or Jordan Pickford will wear the gloves.

After peeping the gloves above, check out our closer look at the Virgil Abloh x Nike Mercurial Vapor 360 football cleats.
