Official images of Virgil Abloh’s Off-White Jordan 4 have surfaced, revealing in detail what could be one of the year’s most coveted sneaker release. Decked out in a near-tonal cream upper with opaque fixtures on the lace eyelets, tongue/upper netting, and heel-tab, this latest release by the Louis Vuitton figurehead throws in the trademark touches in the Helvetica text on the upper and the “AIR” boldly bannered above the visible Air unit. The construction of these Off-White Jordans are also consistent with Virgil’s previous two Air Jordan drops, with exposed sponge at the sockliner and synthetic overlays attributing to that deconstructed look that the entire “The Ten” has been notable for. Zip-ties and classic Air Jordan hangtags will come attached, while the OG-style shoebox features enlarged holes. Recently, Virgil donated an autographed pair to be auctioned off for charity, raising over $100,000 towards key organizations that support the Black Lives Matter movement.
Prior to the COVID-19 situation, Nike had planned to release a full catalog of imaginative collaborations at the height of the Tokyo Olympics, done by the likes of Virgil Abloh, Yoon Ahn of Ambush, Matthew M. Williams, UNDERCOVER, and sacai. Although this Air Jordan 4 was not previewed at the brand’s Future Forum fashion show back in February, it was very much assumed that these would be available throughout the scheduled Games. Of course this year’s Olympics have been cancelled, but the Jordan release is fully expected to go down.
See the full official images of this Off-White x Air Jordan 4 by Virgil Abloh ahead and stay tuned for the official release on July 25th.
