Now this collab between designer Virgil Abloh and Nike has been on every Hype blog and sneaker site since the Air Jordan 1 first started popping up on different social threads earlier this year. Recently "The Ten" has been confirmed and damn I may just go ahead and buy them all. I really love this deconstructed look that is happening with their design, it really feels like Virgil sketched the shoe and it came to life straight from the paper.
I think it goes without saying that the most sought after pairs will be the Jordan 1's and the Presto design. I for one will do my damnedest to get myself both pairs.
A lot of L's will be had on release day
The price point for the shoes isn't so bad either, ranging around $130 to $250. Posted by @theyeezymafia
Even though Nike hasn't officially confirmed the prices, I doubt they'll be fair priced. OFF WHITE is expensive as hell. So either they'll be at a good price point but fairly hard to grab a pair. Or they will be expensive as fuck and still hard to grab a pair.
2017 Standard Fuckboy Edition is wearing an OFF White jacket that costs $3,402.
I am not that confident that they will be either affordable or available for most people. For the first time in my life, I may be waiting in a damn line for some fucking sneakers, if my plugs at Complex Magazine don't come through with a hook-up.
UGH DO I HAVE TO WAIT IN THIS LINE?!?!
So which pair will you try to grab. But most importantly how the hell will you go about it?
Nike will host “Nike Off Campus” events in New York City and London to celebrate The Ten through presentations of the full collection and exchanges about the ideas that inspired it. "Nike Off Campus" will take place in New York City from September 6 to 8 at 23 Wall Street and from September 14 to 17 at various locations in East London.
The first five icons of The Ten — the Air Jordan I, Nike Blazer, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air Max 90 and Nike Air VaporMax — will be pre-released at NikeLab stores in New York City (Sept. 9-13), London (Sept. 18-22), Milan (Sept. 21-25) and Paris (Sept. 26-30).
The full collection including all ten silhouettes will be available in November at NikeLab stores and select retailers worldwide.
