News about the collaboration between Jordan Brand and OFF WHITE that would revolve around the Air Jordan 1 has been circulating since back in April. It was revealed that this unique, collaborative iteration of Jordan Brand’s classic and iconic signature model would be among this year’s Jordan releases 2017. Some latest information regarding the retail debut of the OFF WHITE x Air Jordan 1 suggests that this is indeed the case. Plenty of sneakerheads are surely already eager to cop a pair of this Air Jordan 1 version, which has been described as avant-garde. Apparently, even the box this sneaker will arrive in is equally unique and unusual.
Ever since it was unveiled, both the Air Jordan 1 and Virgil Abloh, the man behind OFF WHITE, have been making heads on sneaker blogs. Back in May, Virgil himself wore the OFF WHITE x Air Jordan 1 at the Met Gala, but his pair appeared to be equipped with lime green-colored laces rather than black-colored ones. Last month, Virgil even shared a photo of himself signing a couple of friends and family pairs of the Air Jordan 1 for celebrities like A$AP Rocky and Don C. Virgil even customized one particular pair and its box for Michael Jordan, adding “23” and “45” to the heels.
Sneakerheads reading this may not be familiar with the YouTube channel DamnnEricka, but apparently Ericka has somehow managed to get their hands on an OFF WHITE x Air Jordan 1 pair. In one of her videos, she unboxes the sneaker and provides a good, clear look at the packaging that will contain the sneaker. From the looks of it, the box has been themed to be inside out. Inside of the exterior, the box appears to be a Black-colored interior with a Gold-colored “Jumpman” logo at the bottom, in the center. Similarly, the Brown-colored surface that is usually inside can now be spotted outside, with “JUMPMAN” printed over it at the top. Apparently, the packaging will also include wrapping paper featuring both Nike and OFF WHITE branding.
This upcoming release will truly be one of a kind and finally, sneakerheads now get to find out when exactly it will be joining upcoming Air Jordan releases 2017. It is being rumored and somewhat confirmed that the OFF WHITE x Air Jordan 1 is going to hit the shelves on September 1st and will retail at a whopping price of $350.
