This year, Jordan Brand and Virgil Abloh teamed up once again, whipping up another OFF-White x Air Jordan 1 colorway, which was unfortunately a Europe-exclusive. Deconstructed features have become a signature element of these OFF-WHITE collaborative releases. The same was the case with this iteration too, which had predominantly White-colored uppers, with contrasting Black-, Blue- and Orange-colored accents. The sneaker wound up retailing at a price of $190 on March 3, 2018 at European retailers like BSTN, END, Jordan Bastille, Kickz, Solebox, and many others. It turns out that next year’s Jordan releases 2019 will include a variety of other, brand new OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1 colorways.
Last year, even Nike collaborated with Virgil Abloh. The result of this collaboration was an OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Force 1 Low, which was a part of the exclusive sneaker lineup at ComplexCon 2017. 2017 actually marked the 35th anniversary of the Air Force 1 Low. Official photos of the sneaker surfaced just a couple of days ago. It actually looks somewhat similar to the OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1 that made its European retail debut recently. However, it is being rumored the OFF-WHITE x Air Force 1 Low might actually end up being available soon on Nike.com at a price of $150.Eleven months remain until the present years comes to an end and there are plenty of Air Jordan releases 2018 that will end up hitting the shelves by then. However, it is not uncommon for Jordan Brand’s sneaker releases from upcoming years to pop up a year early. It is being reported that several different OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1 colorways will make their retail debut next year. Among them will be a “UNC” colorway inspired by Michael Jordan’s alma mater. While the photo accompanying this post is not of the actual sneaker, this is what it may end up looking like.
Thus, sneakerheads may look forward to more OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1 colorways becoming a part of next year’s Jordan releases 2019. Keep checking back to SneakerExclusive for more news and updates, including the latest photos, as soon as these colorways are unveiled.
