Virgil Abloh is up to something in Chicago. He is preparing an Exhibit and Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art that opens up to the public very soon. Throughout the exhibit, his creativity and designs are showcased which brought forth images of this Yellow Off-White x Air Jordan 1.
The “Figures of Speech” exhibit looks to be a great one if you’re a fan of Virgil or just a fan of his Off-White x Air Jordan sneaker collabs, both are showcased throughout. Today a dinner was held that even Kanye showed up for and images emerged of some of the pieces that were out for display. Along with the line of sneaker he has under his belt with Nike and Air Jordan, samples were showcased as well. One stood out the most and it was this Off-White x Air Jordan 1 Yellow.
Appearing just like the other Air Jordan 1’s we have seen Abloh release, the upper comes deconstructed as different shades of white make up the side panels, midfoot and toe while yellow takes on the detailing nicely. White “Shoelaces” tie the model down that comes with a black zip-tie while a white Nike Swoosh is placed on the midfoot and a white midsole that features “AIR” in black finishes the design.
Although this is just a sample, we can very well see this release sometime in the future but with the way the collaboration looks to be headed the yellow Air Jordan 1 may never see a release date. Grab a detailed look below and as always stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for updates and other Off-White x Air Jordan news.
