Sneakerheads look out! The Off-White x Nike collaboration is happening and ready to go in just a couple of days. The two brands have created a capsule collection of ten sneakers that relate to basketball and running.
Designed by Virgil Abloh, founder and creative designer of Off-White, ten chosen sneakers have been split into two packs; the “REVEALING” pack and the “GHOSTING” pack. The collection features ten iconic silhouettes of Nike, Jordan, and Converse shoes.
