After releasing the covetable “The Ten” collection last year, Nike and Off-White™ designer Virgil Abloh have been working around the clock to produce more must-have iterations of the popular sneakers. We’ve seen the Air VaporMax Flyknit take on both a black and a white colorway, as well as many rumored versions of the skateboard-inspired Blazer Mid, with many more expected to release down the line. In February, the Swoosh dropped the anticipated Nike x Virgil Abloh Air Jordan 1 in “White,” and the minimal basketball shoe quickly became one of the most sought-after on the market.
Now, designer and it-girl Chiara Capitani has just shared a custom version of the white shoe, this time getting fully dipped in a red dye. The previously white crep is shown during the dyeing process, giving the upper a deep red hue whereas the leather detailing shows up as a muted red, almost pink, color. The custom design was done with retailer One Block Down, and was first shown on Capitani’s Instagram. Although the shoe is a one-of-one custom, we can only hope that the lush colorway will give Virgil Abloh some ideas for his next sneaker drop.
Peep the custom kicks in the gallery above, and check out Chiara’s post down below.
