While unauthorized photos have been circulating online of the OFF-WHITE Jordan 1, the sneakers everyone is clamoring for are officially revealed by the swoosh.
This includes ten silhouettes from the past and present from Nike, Jordan Brand, and Converse. Dubbed “The Ten” by Nike, the collection is split up into two sets of 5, with Abloh coining five shoes “REVEALING” and the other five “GHOSTING”. You can find more details on these inspirations at the Nike news article.
The “REVEALING” group was designed to look accessible and reconstruct models like the Air Jordan I, Nike Air VaporMax, Nike Air Max 90, Nike Air Presto, and Nike Blazer Mid.
The “GHOSTING” set was designed with translucent uppers and includes the Converse Chuck Taylor, Nike Zoom Fly SP, Nike Air Force 1 Low, Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 and Nike Air Max 97.
The first five icons of The Ten — the Air Jordan I, Nike Blazer, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air Max 90 and Nike Air VaporMax — will be pre-released at NikeLab stores in New York City (Sept. 9-13), London (Sept. 18-22), Milan (Sept. 21-25) and Paris (Sept. 26-30).
The full collection including all ten silhouettes will be available in November at NikeLab stores and select retailers worldwide.
