Virgil Abloh created the Milan-based luxury menswear/streetwear brand Off-White in 2012. Off-White has grown to be one of the more well-known and identifiable luxury streetwear labels available, distinguished by its distinctive emblem of bold diagonal lines and intersecting arrows. With its partnership with Nike and “The Ten Icons,” which featured the Air Jordan 1, Vapormax, Air Force 1, and more, the company gained even greater notoriety. Virgil Abloh, the creator of Off-White, later took over as the head designer of menswear for the fashion house Louis Vuitton. The newest pair of sneakers from Off-White are shown below.
Virgil Abloh lost his battle with a rare type of cancer in the latter half of 2021. April 2022 saw the first of Nike’s sneaker collaboration releases.
