Model: Air Force 1 Mid
Release Date: June 23
Editor's Notes: Somehow, it's already been over half a year since the world lost a genius in Virgil Abloh. Since his passing, we've continued to see his mastery unfold, with projects, collections, collaborations, and charitable work continuing to come to light well beyond his physical reach. As fans, we can only sit back and marvel at just how much he managed to achieve in his life, especially within its final years.
Given the intense rate of experimentation and sampling that was going on behind closed doors at Nike between Abloh and his team at Off-White™, it shouldn't come as any sort of surprise that there was far more than just The Ten, or even The Fifty, to come.
Littered between those sixty styles, which included all of Nike's most beloved creations, including the Presto, Air Force 1, Air Max 90, Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 4, Dunk Low, and so much more, were infrequent releases of rogue silhouettes and bold colorways. Since the creator's passing, we've continued to see many more of these step into the light.
Already, we have more to prepare for with the approach of a two-piece pack of Air Force 1 Mids. Virgil's love of the AF1 Low has been no secret, with the silhouette receiving extra special attention in the recent Louis Vuitton collection, so much so that a focus on the Mids is welcomed.
Similar to several other silhouettes in recent months, the two-pack of AF1 Mids looks ready to tackle track and field just as much as the streets, thanks to the track spikes towards the forefoot. All of the other elements that you'd expect from an Off-White™ Nike are present, including hangtags, exposed stitching, an extravagant lacing system, slogans, and mixed fabrication upper.
