LOUIS VUITTON X NIKE BY VIRGIL ABLOH
The first ever release (of sorts) of the infamous, highly anticipated Louis Vuitton and Nike ‘Air Force 1’ created by Virgil Abloh for the SS22 Menswear collection is here. In collaboration with Sotheby’s, 200 special edition pairs of the already legendary sneakers will be auctioned off, complete with neon orange pilot cases made of Monogram Taurillon Leather. The coolest. Virgil had been involved in the early organisation of the auction, with proceeds benefiting The Virgil Abloh™ “Post-Modern” Scholarship Fund, in partnership with the Fashion Scholarship Fund, which supports the education of Black students. The 200 pairs of the special edition sneakers come in a range of sizes, from 5-18, with a starting bid of $2,000, open for bidding from 26 January – 8 February on Sothebys.com.
