Virgil Abloh Reveals Photos of the First-Ever Off-White™ x Air Jordan 1 Sample

“The exact pair that kicked off an epiphany.”

Virgil Abloh took to Instagram to unveil images of the first Off-White™ x Air Jordan 1 sample pair he produced with Nike. His caption reads: “An Exacto Knife and this off the shelf pair of Jordan 1’s and ‘The Ten’ came to fruition. This is the exact pair that kicked off an epiphany.”

As seen on Abloh’s post, the sneaker‘s sole unit features a rough sketch of an “Air Bag,” also known as Nike’s Air Cushion Unit. Placed on top of the exposed interior upper is the iconic Swoosh attached to the pair with blue tape. Finally, the shoe’s collar shows its original foam base, along with unpicked stitching at the heel.

Take a closer look at the very first Off-White™ x Air Jordan 1 sample below. In case you missed it, don’t forget to peep the upcoming Off-White™ x Air Jordan 1 “Canary Yellow.”
