It was last year that Off-White began collaborating with both Jordan Brand and Nike. An Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Low was previewed the year before it and in March 2017, A$AP Bari confirmed the release of the sneaker. Back in April 2017, more detailed photos of an Off-White x Air Jordan 1 High “Chicago” also emerged. It turned out that both those sneakrs were a part of an Off-White x Nike “The Ten” Collection. March’s Air Jordan releases 2018 also included a Europe-exclusive Off-White x Air Jordan 1 “White.” Jordan Brand & Off-White have apparently whipped up a “Power Blue” colorway of the Air Jordan 1 too.
The Off-White x Nike “The Ten” Collection was officially unveiled in August 2017. It comprised of a Chuck Taylor, the Air Jordan 1 and eight different Nike sneaker models, all of which were divided into two separate groups, one named the “REVEALING” and the other the “GHOSTING.” The “REVEALING” included the Air Blazer Mid, Air Jordan 1, Air Presto, Air Max 90 and the Air VaporMax. The “GHOSTING” included the Air Force 1 Low, Air Max 97, Chuck Taylor, React Hyperdunk 2017 and the Zoom Fly SP. The sneakers from the “REVEALING” group ended up being pre-released in London, Milan and NYC at NikeLab stores in September 2017.
Although it is being referred to as the Off-White x Air Jordan 1 “Powder Blue,” it is obvious that this colorway draws inspiration from the University of North Carolina, Michael Jordan’s alma mater. Like the previous two Off-White x Air Jordan 1 releases, especially the more recent Europe-exclusive, this iteration also features the same deconstructed appearance. Official photos of the sneaker have yet to arrive, but it will likely be dressed up in Powder Blue, the hue it gets its nickname from, and White. The latest reports suggest that this Off-White x Air Jordan 1 “Powder Blue” will retail at a price of $190 on June 9th, 2018.
