During the Summer of last year, Virgil Abloh and Louis Vuitton revealed one of the most exciting Air Force 1 collaborations in years. With Abloh’s unfortunate passing just a couple of months ago, most of us were not sure whether these would see the light of day. However, considering new in-hand images of the shoe have recently surfaced, it seems entirely possible that the release is proceeding as planned.
Seen in the grips of one of the luxury house’s closest partners, Lucien Clarke, the Louis Vuitton x Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 is depicted in orange and blue make-up. The beloved monogram is etched into the shoe across the entirety of its exterior, accenting the base and white-colored Swoosh. Behind, the new Helvetica text dresses up in the very same neutral in complement to the midsole and laces, the latter of which offers its own “LACET” marking. LV logos, then, hit the insole and heel tab just adjacent to Virgil’s usual touches.
The colored versions of the Louis Vuitton x Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 are rumored to be Friends & Family only and will not be made available to the public. 200 Monogram pairs, however, will be up for auction through Sotheby’s.
