All summer long Nike and Off-White designer has been teasing images of an array of collaborative sneaker designs, including the Air Max 90, Air Jordan 1 (watch unboxing here), Air Presto, Air Vapormax, Blazer Mid and Air Force 1. Now rumors are surfacing that all of the aforementioned sneakers except the AF1 will drop on September 1, 2017.
For now anyway, it appears the Air Force 1 is not included in the mix. Though it should be noted that when the rumor around this collaboration first surfaced, there was talk the partnership would include a total of ten silhouettes, which are Jordan 3, Air Max 1, Cortez Ultra and Lunarepic Flyknit.
Neither Nike nor Off-White Virgil Abloh have even confirmed an official partnership, but both have been seeding product like crazy for the past month (often personalized with black marker by Virgil with the recipient’s name), a sure sign that the official launch day is imminent.
Pause: There is also a rumor that Abloh came close to signing with Adidas for a cool $1 million, but a higher up on the creative team who shall go unnamed felt the brand was already committed to enough partnerships and put the kabosh on the deal. Given how fast Abloh’s star is rising, it seems like a poor move, but then again, Adidas does have a ton of designer partnerships.
Below is an estimated price list by the sometimes haughty yet almost always accurate @yeezymafia, though to be honest, some of these seem priced a bit on the low side. For example, the NikeLab RT Air Force 1 made in collaboration with Riccardo Tisci was priced at $230. As well, even NikeLab’s (horrible) Air Zoom shoe with Kim Jones was $250.
Air Jordan 1: $190
Air Max 90: $160
Blazer Mid: $130
Air Presto: $160
Vapormax Flighknit: $250
All shoes including the AF1 below.
