Off white appear to be taking Nike’s latest model back to the drawing bored by giving the shoe a fresh from the lab prototype look. Thanks to the Instagram account s.sam.group we get our best look yet at Virgil Abloh’s take on the silhouette. Abloh uses the most popular colourway of triple black as the basis for the collab adding a white tick which looks as though it has literally just been sewn on, in order to fit the prototype feel.
The medial side of the shoe text replaces the swoosh which briefly details what the shoe is. Rumours suggest the two could collaborate on 10 other models. images of the Air Jordan 1 and Air Max 90 have been floating round which both carry the same medial side text.
