And they’re pretty special.
Virgil Abloh’s killing the game right now, dropping collabs in all the right places. As the worlds of fashion and football continue to collide and the power of the Hypebeast begins to enter the pitch, OFF-WHITE reworking Nike’s signature football boot is a game changer.
Not many images have been released of this special boot just yet, but they clearly feature a vibrant orange upper with OFF-WHITE branding, text and circular graphics throughout. OFF-WHITE’s signature industrial-style labelling features in the form of “KNIT” and “LOGO” on the side of each shoe, whilst Nike bring their own Abloh-esque, “LIMITED EDITION” labelling featuring under the tongue.
That’s about all we know at this stage, as the boots were exclusively previewed at an event in London. However, the boots follow the recently revealed CR7 boots designed by Kim Jones, which will see their premiere in the star-studded game between Real Madrid and PSG tonight.
