Virgil Abloh, a name synonymous with innovation and creativity, left an indelible mark on the fashion and sneaker world. Even in the face of adversity, battling a rare and aggressive form of cancer, Abloh’s passion for design never waned. His collaborations with Nike, particularly the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid, stand as a testament to his genius.

The latest revelation from this iconic partnership is the “Grim Reaper” colorway of the Nike Air Force 1 Mid. This design is a masterful blend of the classic silhouette of the Air Force 1 Mid and the avant-garde aesthetics of Off-White. Dominated by a white base, the sneaker features a grim reaper graphic that wraps around its upper, extending to the medial ankle. This is complemented by the unmistakable Off-White logo. The shoe’s design is further elevated by a bold black Nike Swoosh on the outer side, which contrasts beautifully with the white base. Adding a touch of vibrancy, lime green accents are woven into the primary laces, and the signature white hangtag completes the look.

The collaboration between Nike and Off-White has always been about pushing boundaries, and the “Grim Reaper” is no exception. Its edgy design, spiked rubber sole, and intricate detailing make it a sought-after piece among sneaker enthusiasts. However, it’s the story behind the shoe and the legacy of Virgil Abloh, that truly makes it unique.


Sadly, the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Grim Reaper” Sample is rumored to be limited to just two pairs, with no plans for a public release. Stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more of the latest sneaker news, release dates, and restock alerts.
