Back in 2017, the Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton Men’s and CEO of Off-White™ was given the opportunity to reconstruct 10 Nike footwear icons divided into two themes, dubbed “The 10.” The first, “REVEALING,” saw the Air Jordan 1, Air Max 90, Air Presto, Air VaporMax and Blazer Mid reimagined in a deconstructed manner. While “GHOSTING,” utilized a translucent material to offer a look into the Converse Chuck Taylor, Zoom Fly SP, Air Force 1 Low, React Hyperdunk 2017 and Air Max 97.
Although not much info has surfaced about the potential “The 20” collection, it is safe to assume it should involve 20 different sneaker silhouettes. If the sure to be sought after range follows “The 10” we should see a mix of Jordan Brand, Nike and Converse silhouettes. Details also expected to be carried over include zip-tie tags, orange tabs, “SHOELACES” printed laces and industrial Helvetica text printing.
