Here we get a first look at an unreleased sample of the Nike Air Force 1 Low x Off-White in Green shared by close friend of Virgil and latest Supreme creative director Tremaine Emory. This rendition seems to be a follow-up to the monochromatic AF1 Off-Whites like the MoMA, MCA, and the ICA.
Virgil Abloh’s sudden passing shocked the entire fashion and sneaker industry. The Off-White founder and Louis Vuitton artistic director among other credentials was one of the most influential designers of his era. His 2017 collab with Nike dubbed “The Ten” became his breakthrough in the sneaker culture as he reworked 10 Nike icons.
While there’s a slim possibility for a release following Virgil’s death (which halted scheduled Nike Off-White releases); it’s still great to see the long-lasting legacy that Virgil Abloh left behind. Hopefully his samples and unreleased silhouettes will inspire the designers after him and improve their craft.
In a mockup done by @ph_community, the Nike Air Force 1 Low x Off-White “Green” arrives in an all-green leather upper. Usual Off-White signatures such as the quoted words, zip tie, and exposed foam on the lining appear in their locations.
The Metallic Silver Swoosh with black stitching on the outline brings a premium feel – just like the previous releases. The medial side of the shoe highlights the usual Off-White and Nike branding; which is also a staple design feature on almost all of Off-White products.
Down below, the PU sole also comes in green, with the large “AIR” lettering in white standing out the AIR label on the rear. A concentric traction outsole completes the timeless design of the former hoops shoe.
