Virgil Abloh And Nike Working On An Off-White “The Twenty” Collection

Four years ago, Virgil Abloh helped NIKE, Inc. change the pattern of sports shoes. His off-white brand "the Ten" series deconstructed (you guessed it) 10 shoe icons from the Swoosh Group's green nike shoes, Although this game-changing partnership has launched some coveted versions since 2017, it has yet to regain the momentum of the aforementioned capsule. However, recent rumors indicate that another collection of 10 items-effectively named "Twenty"-is in progress. Although speculation about the new project has been around Abloh for several years, the latest rumors appeared immediately after the designer’s "ICONS" was released, a new book co-authored by the publisher TASCHEN, Abloh reviews in the book He created more than 50 sneaker designs when he collaborated with Nike (NIKE, Inc.). The prototype Nike Air Max 97 and other models have never been seen before, making it a "ten" appearing throughout the editorial. And because this native of Illinois has explored this subject before, "icon" may be the end of this chapter.

There is no doubt that any cohesive series of the North American sportswear giant's Off White series will be on par with the "Top Ten" of 2017. However, enthusiasts may not want new versions of all original styles (sorry, React Hyperdunk). Another Air Jordan 1 is undoubtedly the ideal choice, but considering the popularity of this model since 2017, it seems like a scam to include it in the potential "Top 20". If Ablow's next extensive project with Nike arrives in 2021, the Jordan 6 may be a perfect fit for the collection considering it celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Without Nike's dunk, the "Top Twenty" would be incomplete. The non-white forward has helped Nike regain its vitality in the past four years. The obscure models in the Swoosh running catalog and the idols beloved in the golden age of professional basketball will all become the follow-up new products of the "Top Ten" series.

Regardless of whether Ablo released another 10 eyes in his mind, two things are certain: 1. Each pair will sell out 2 pairs. The 40-year-old designer will further consolidate his position in the history of design.In the past few years, Nike SB has been busy launching its Dunk Low series. Although these efforts are impressive, sometimes they have not reached the clean execution of Grant Taylor. The 29-year-old’s latest proposition-the Nike SB Blazer Low GT-was inspired by Chevrolet's El Camino utility vehicle. At first glance, the upcoming pair of shoes is just a roller skate that can be worn in blue. However, further inspection revealed the subject details. Suede, canvas and leather uppers play a supporting role in the muscle car recalling the brand's tongue. Like the American manufacturer El Camino's version from 1968-72, the Taylor low-top Blazer uses two-tone stripes and industrial vintage fonts on the insole and tongue label. Elsewhere, the sole unit gives up any nod to vintage cars, but their light plastic brown outsole is the favorite of sports fans.
