Virgil Abloh recently took to Twitter to ask fans what they want to see from his ongoing partnership with Nike.

Prompting his followers with a tweet simply saying, “There’s a blank sheet of paper in front of me. What Nike zone should I do next?” kicked off the conversation. Aligning with messages he received, Virgil noted that he wants to place a spotlight on some OG Swoosh silhouettes. Highlighting models like the Nike Ndestrukt and Air Rift as he made his way through tweets from fans. The multi-disciplinary creative also noted that he is working on an original silhouette to go along with more re-imaginations of classic Nike footwear models. Rounding up the conversation, Virgil opened the floor once again with the tweet asking if there were any sports genres that he might be forgetting.
