Off-White and Nike have totally dominated 2017 – the modern takes on classic sneaker silhouette is indicative of how far Virgil Abloh has pushed the culture into a new realm of creativity.
Since most of us missed out on copping “The Ten”, the two masterminds will be partnering yet again for a second collaborative collection. So far, six make-ups have been reported across four silhouettes: the Air VaporMax, the Air Max 90, the Air Presto and the Air Force 1 ’07.
*LEAK UPDATE* “The 10” will now drop as “The 9” due to a delay in production, which will see the missing shoe drop at a later date. pic.twitter.com/dk9INcWDag

This Off-White Collab is clearly what Nike needed to revive their brand this year as adidas slowly but surely began to creep on their streetwear crown. Will adidas clap back with a high-end streetwear collab in 2018? Their Palace collabs have seen huge enduring popularity amongst skate shoe faithfuls, but, nothing has quite mirrored the hype.
The collection is yet to be confirmed by either party, but it is highly likely for a 2018 drop. Stay tuned for more details.
