With Virgil Abloh’s Italian fashion brand being one of the most controversial fashion labels since 2012, the Off-White Nike Air Force 1 MCA is one of the most controversial sneakers this June. It was spotted on Virgil’s feet himself last year.
It looks like Virgil wants to end his collaboration with Nike, which started with “The Ten” collection, in a very special and surprising way. The bold look and misleading release dates surely confirm that. I mean, it’s already obvious how hard it is to cop a pair of these Off-White Air Force 1.
Here’s a nutshell of all the things you need to know about these Off-Whites:
Off-White Air Force 1: Features
Colourway: University Blue / White / University Red / Metallic Silver
It’s a rick blue paint color along with silver swooshes on the lateral and medial side and exposed stitching. Abloh’s red signature introduces a nice contrast of colors. It differs from the other “The Ten” collection in that it is leather based.
Retail price: $150
Resale price: $2283
When we talk about sneaker reselling, we straight away think of Off-Whites and their crazy resale prices.
The Off-white Nike Air Force 1: Release Date
Abloh gifted the last pair of the collaborative Off-White Air Force 1s to the tennis legend, Serena Williams. And of course, he signed it along the midsole in typical fashion with “Air Williams” and “For Serena Only”.
The release dates were many with none confirmed for sure. It was expected to be June 14 and June 10 previously, but no official announcements have been made by either brand till today. It’s very likely that they will follow the same release strategy as the MoMA Exclusive earlier this year. Rumors had it that it will be released exclusively at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. However, Virgil himself declared that it will not be released at the event on June 10 and he was true to his word.
We were surprised by a late-night drop yesterday (14/6/2019) on the Off-White webstore, but we still do not have any confirmation on full releases. It is expected to drop roughly by July 20.
We know that it will drop in men’s and GS sizes. Be sure that they will be using a raffle too, which makes it even harder to cop it.
Why Cop The Off-White Air Force 1?
