Despite the announcement that ‘The Ten’ – the hyped collaboration between Abloh and Nike – would come to an end, it seems that the duo isn’t finished. While we thought we’d come to the end of an era, this weekend Virgil Abloh swapped out the pen and paper for the dessert and taking to Coachella, it wasn’t his set that had people talking.
In an opportunity to take the prototype to the world stage, Abloh was spotted rocking an unreleased pair of collaborative kicks. Later revealed via his Instagram account, his latest Nike collaboration has come to fruition. Although sneakers were initially shown on the Off-White™‘s women’s Spring/Summer 2019 runway, these appear to be a new model.
Reminiscent of Nike Air Presto, albeit with a twist these sneakers are unlike any previous designs. Boasting an oversized tongue, the cool-factor comes in the form of reflective Swooshes, bold pink exaggerated traction, double lacing and of course – a zip tag.
With speculations flying, no other details have been released. Stay tuned.
