Ahead of Off-White™’s Paris Fashion Week SS20 show today, Virgil Abloh took to Instagram to share a first look (below) at what appeared to be a collaborative Nike Dunk Low with Futura Laboratories branding on the heel and outsole. Two colorways were unveiled on the runway and, following the show, we can now give you an on-foot look at both. Check them out in the gallery above.
Abloh had previously teased a collaboration with renowned New York City artist Futura. Following the first sneaker teaser, Abloh went on to share a full look at both colorways, the first of which features a North Carolina blue and white colorway, as well as Off-White™’s customary branding on the lateral side of the shoe with added Futura-inspired typography. Blue flat laces are combined with an extra pair of orange round laces, which have been added on the top of the traditional lacing system in a style similar to some trail running or hiking-style shoes.
The second version is rendered in an orange and black colorway, with the same additional lacing system as the UNC version. The branding on the second pair is black, with a white Swoosh and midsole, as well as a darker blue translucent outsole. Check both out in the Instagram gallery below.
Abloh has teased upcoming projects at Paris Fashion Week in the past, including his collaborative Nike Air Jordan 1 and the upcoming Zoom Terra Kiger 5. There had been rumors of Abloh working on a series of Dunks, due to the silhouette’s recent revival. That has seemingly been confirmed following the show, however, we probably won’t see them until the Spring/Summer season of next year.
