In a post shared on this Twitter account, Abloh reveals the “Ultimate Idea” behind all the accessories, sharing that these accessories were key to his customization plan. The tweet went on to state all those extra laces and zip-ties are precisely so sneakerheads could get creative and put their own spin on their footwear. “The ultimate idea was that all those extra laces and the zip-ties go to use with all your other pairs of shoes to DIY make your own versions of Off-White™ sneakers,” Abloh wrote in a tweet reply to an image of “Syracuse” Nike Dunk Highs equipped with the signature Off-White™ elements.
