After surfacing online late last year, the Virgil Abloh x Nike Air Jordan 1 in an all-white colorway has been teased further at Paris Fashion Week FW18.
The images above are courtesy of Italian luxury retailer Antonioli, taken backstage at Abloh’s OFF–WHITE FW18 presentation in Paris. The Air Jordan 1 features many of the same deconstructed features that were incorporated in the Chicago-version Jordan 1 from “The Ten,” with rumours suggesting it could drop at some point later this year. The all-white pair also features a powder blue hang tag instead of the red one seen previously.
Neither Nike or Abloh have given official announcements on whether the shoe is releasing, but after several leaks — and the fact the sneaker has featured in the designer’s runway show — it’s hard to believe the sneaker will not see a public release at some point. The white colourway could be part of a forthcoming women’s collection of sneakers, which has been rumored to release this year.
