Following on from the most recent leak earlier this month, Virgil Abloh and Nike have come together to officially unveil the Off-White™ x Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 5. The sneaker makes up part of the the “Athlete in Progress” collection, which takes inspiration from the confidence and self belief of runners throughout history. The collection is set to include post-run apparel alongside performance product.

Influenced by Nike’s archival running silhouettes, the Zoom Terra Kiger 5 features small running spikes alongside technical-style laces and a Nike Zoom sole unit. These performance references are combined with signature Off-White™ design touches, including the lace tag — this time coming in dark green — and the orange tab on the Swoosh. The collaborative sneaker will release in three colorways: “White/Metallic Silver/Sail/Safety Orange,” “Electric Green/Metallic Silver/Sail” and “Black/Metallic Silver/White/Pink Blast.”

Speaking about the collection, Abloh explained that he “started talking with Nike about this women’s running project last summer and at the time, I was very much inspired by the aesthetic and style of track and field athletes. As a result, I invited some of Nike’s elite track and field champions to participate in my SS19 Off-White™ runway show as the natural forerunner to developing and showcasing the collection.”

To mark the launch of the “Athlete in Progress” collection, Off-White™ and Nike have worked with South African runner and 800-meter World Champion Caster Semenya for a set of campaign images.

The Off-White™ x Nike “Athlete in Progress” collection of a running top, tights and the three Zoom Terra Kiger 5 colorways will release globally on June 27.
