Since their first collaboration in 2017, Virgil Abloh and Nike have entirely reformed the rules of alliance and now they’re boarding on their biggest project yet: a 50-pack of takes on the Dunk Low, aptly dubbed “The 50.” Teaser images of select pairs from the outsized collection have been circulating on the sneaker interwebs for months but thanks to Nike SNKRS highlighting “The 50” in its latest “SNKRS Special” slideshow we’ve gotten a look at the entire collection in one place for the first time.
48 of the 50 styles involved follow a disciplined routine, namely embellishing a white and gray upper with key Abloh design motifs like overhanging lacing systems, exposed foam tongues, Helvetica text hits, plastic zipties and fabric tabs. The main difference between each are the alternating material combinations of leather, suede and canvas. A marbled piece of rubber on each shoe’s lateral midsole that denotes its place in “The 50” is a key new addition from past Off-White Dunks. There’s also colorful, Swoosh-equipped insoles in each pair.
The rest two styles that don’t follow the script are pair 01/50 and pair 50/50. The first of these features an all white upper with a metallic silver Swoosh and yellowed midsole reminiscent of the Off-White™ x Nike Air Force 1 “AF100” from 2017, while the second mixes black and metallic silver for a nod to the Off-White™ x Nike Air Force 1 “MoMA” from 2018 and adds in some rich purple accents.
The Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Low “The 50” collection is yet to receive a release date, but Nike has hinted towards more info soon.
