Virgil Abloh’s Off-White Drops Its Avant-garde Remix of The Nike Vapor Street

Following the release of the Zoom Terra Kiger 5, today Virgil Abloh and Off-White™ drops another collaboration with Nike: The Off-White X Nike Vapor Street. The highly anticipated collaborative footwear is part of Abloh’s “Athlete’s In Progress” collection, which was was shown in Off-White’s SS19 show in Paris, featuring athletes Dina Asher-Smith, Vashti Cunningham, Cecilia Yeung, English Gardner, Katarina Johnson-Thompson, Nafi Thiam, Caterine Ibarguen, and Rénelle Lamote.

I started talking with Nike about this women’s running project last summer and at the time, I was very much inspired by the aesthetic and style of track and field athletes. As a result, I invited some of Nike’s elite track and field champions to participate in my spring 2019 Off-White runway show as the natural forerunner to developing and showcasing the collection,” says Abloh.

Leading to its release, the avant-garde remix of the Vapor Street has generated much hype with Abloh teasing it through his personal Instagram account. The shoe features a textile upper with plastic layering and a duo lacing system for maximum lockdown. The placement of the Swoosh branding extends onto portions of the thick foam midsole and also featuring a spiky track-inspired outsole for extra grip—even on the streets.

The new Off-White x Nike Vapor Street “Athlete in Progress” is now available for purchase at select Nike stockists, available in three color options: Laser Fuchsia, Polarized Blue and Tour Yellow.
