Released in Nikelab stores in September 2017, the Off-White x Air VaporMax was part of Virgil Abloh’s 10-pair collaboration with Nike and quickly became one of the most coveted sneakers of the year. The design features a Black Flyknit upper with an oversized Swoosh with White stitching, Orange accents, and a full-length blacked-out Air VaporMax sole. The shoe also features a throwback tongue and the collection’s quote motif can be found on the laces and side panels.
Released for Air Max Day in 2018, this Sean Wotherspoon-designed hybrid won the ‘Vote Forward’ campaign. This new creation combines the upper of an Air Max 97 with an Air Max 1 outsole. The shoe features a retro-inspired multicolored corduroy upper with corduroy pull tabs, Velcro tongue patches and an Infrared Air unit.
The April 2018 version of Virgil Abloh’s all-white Air VaporMax remains largely unchanged from the original pair from ‘The Ten’. Stripped of color, the performance runner brings unique raw materials and details to the forefront, including an exposed foam tongue, translucent Swoosh and Off-White suede eyelet. Printed on the clear VaporMax unit, the printed ‘AIR’ quote on the side takes on an added meta dimension.
Sacai and Nike collaborate again, with the Nike LDWaffle emerging from Paris Fashion Week at the Sacai SP19 show. Using a unique hybridization technique, the shoe blends two Nike runners from the archives: the Waffle Daybreak and the LDV. With two shoes coming together, a unique upper features a double Swoosh, double tongue, double heel counter, double eyelets and double laces. It has a blue and red upper that mixes suede, leather, and mesh, while a sculpted midsole juts out beyond the heel, adding an extra element of crazy design lines on an already chaotic shoe. A classic waffle outsole brings it all together, while Nike and Sacai branding can be seen on the back of the heel and insole.
