Editor’s Notes: The Chicago colorway scooped the Highsnobiety Crown for sneaker of the year in 2017, however, Nike and Virgil Abloh have opted for an all-white affair in 2018. Dropping at the end of this month, the sneaker will release in both men’s and women’s sizing.
After leaking online, the sneaker was officially unveiled at OFF–WHITE’s FW18 runway show in Paris earlier in January, and could be part of a second “The Ten” collaboration featuring some of the same silhouettes we saw last year.
In what will come as a blow to sneakerheads outside of Europe, this sneaker has reportedly been confirmed as a European exclusive.
Thanks to SneakerNews, we now have the most detailed look at what could be the most hyped sneaker of 2018 via the video below.
