When the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid was unveiled last year, no one could have predicted that Virgil Abloh would not be around for its debut. And though exciting, certainly, the shoe’s upcoming release is much more mournful, as it signals the abrupt, impending end of the late designer’s work with Nike.
A mash-up of elements both new and familiar, the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid near completely reimagines the original silhouette. The shape is still intact, however, only remade with a synthetic textile, whose weave features a wave-like pattern through. Moreover, familiar additions — like Helvetica text, a second lacing system, and stitched-on Swooshes — sit over top, neighboring new features like the lace toggle and graffiti-styled “AIR.” Below, the sole starts with nods to the Terra Kiger 5 and then quickly loses its shape, becoming more fluid towards the rear.
For another look at the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Black” ahead of the upcoming release, see below. These will hit a number of retailers and Nike SNKRS this Thursday, June 23rd; see below for more details.
In other news, the Air Jordan 9 Particle Grey is also releasing this week.
