Last summer, Virgil Abloh unveiled a ton of never-before-seen Off-White x Nike samples at his "Figures of Speech" exhibition at MCA Chicago. From the Air VaporMax all the way to the Air Jordan 4, he had worked on them all, but the Nike sneaker that caught our attention the most was definitely the Off-White x Air Jordan 1 "Canary Yellow" - and we're now taking a closer look!
Crafted from premium leather, the "Canary Yellow" is colour blocked to absolute perfection. Working on an ultra clean white base, vibrant yellow accents make their way towards the toe box and heel and the lacing system. You'll also find a dash of beige suede at the back for an even more opulent look, and obviously it wouldn't be an Off-White shoe without the usual deconstructed elements that we all know and love.
From the usual quoted texted at the laces and "AIR" branding, to the stitched on Swoosh that elegantly glides across the lateral and medial side panels. The OW Air Jordan 1 also features a blacked out zip tie that we previewed back in December last year. Printed on it is "C. 2020", hinting that it could be dropping this year.
Pretty much nothing else is known about the Off-White x Nike Air Jordan 1 "Canary Yellow" at this moment in time. While we're unaware as to whether this particular shoe is 100% legit, our sources our stating that a July release is on the cards. Let us know what you think of Abloh's fourth AJ1, and in related news, the Off-White x Air Jordan 5 "Sail" is also set to drop later this year!
