With the launch of the “CUTTING ROOM FLOOR“ exhibition imminent, SSENSE has announced that it will sell a limited run of Nike Air Force 1s customized by Virgil Abloh. The shoes will be available exclusively from the SSENSE Montreal flagship and feature Virgil’s classic midsole signature in a range of colors.
As well as releasing the unique sneakers, Virgil Abloh and SSENSE have teamed up for a range of other limited-edition products. This includes customized Off-White™ x Rimowa luggage pieces, an exhibition T-shirt and replicas of items found in Abloh’s home studio. While the customized luggage and sneakers are releasing exclusively in-store, other pieces will be available from the SSENSE web store on July 2.
In other Virgil Abloh news, the designer recently shut down speculation about a Vans collaboration.
