Editor’s Notes: Virgil Abloh x Nike’s Converse Chuck Taylor All Star might see a release early next month. Originally planned to be part of “The Ten” collection, the Converse never actually dropped, with spokespeople at Nike promising that it would release “in early 2018.”

Now, it seems as if the long-awaited release could finally happen. According to a leak account, Virgil Abloh’s take on the Chuck Taylor All Star will drop on May 10, though neither Abloh or Nike have made an official statement as of yet.
