Just recently, Nike made an official announcement about its latest collaboration with OFF-WHITE, which involves a huge capsule collection that has been dubbed “The Ten.” As the name of this capsule probably suggests, this capsule includes ten different sneaker models, some from Jordan Brand and Nike, while a few are even from Converse. This is arguably one of Nike’s biggest and most zealous collaborations of 2017, and it took ten whole months to complete this capsule. Turns out that the OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1, is scheduled to join September’s very first Jordan releases 2017, is also a part of this capsule.
The entire OFF-WHITE x Nike “The Ten” collection has been evenly divided into two different categories, namely the “REVEALING” and the “GHOSTING.” The “REVEALING” includes sneaker iterations that been designed to look hand-cut and reconstructed, similar to the OFF-WHITE x Air Jordan 1, which is a part of it. Also included are the Air Max 90, Air Presto, Air VaporMax and the Blazer Mid. The “GHOSTING” actually includes iterations of the Converse Chuck Taylor, the Nike Air Force 1 Low, Air Max 97, React Hyperdunk 2017 and Zoom Fly SP, all of which feature translucent uppers to preset a ghost-like vibe.
In commemoration of “The Ten” capsule, “Nike Off Campus” events will be hosted in London and New York City. These events will reveal the sources of inspiration behind this collection and will include presentations of all these sneakers. These events will be taking place in New York City at 23 Wall Street from September 6th to 8th, and in London at NikeLab 1948 LDN from September 14th to 19th, 2017. Between September 9th and 30th, the Air Jordan 1, Air Max 90, Air Presto, Air VaporMax and the Blazer Mid will be pre-released exclusively at NikeLab stores in London, Milan, New York and Paris.
However, that does not mean that sneakerheads across the globe will not be able to cop these sneakers, rather they will simply have to wait a month or two because they will be joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2017. In fact, all of these sneakers from the OFF-WHITE x Nike “The Ten” capsule collection will reported arrive at worldwide NikeLab and other select stores at some point in November 2017.
