Virgil Abloh’s sneaker industry shifting deluge of Off-White x Nike creations is reportedly coming to an end, at least for now. But before the Louis Vuitton menswear frontman hangs his Swoosh up for good, he is unloading one more set of co-branded Beaverton creations by way of a duo of premium Air Max 90s. Like most of his “sequels” that we saw release in 2018, one of the two iterations will be dressed in a simple combination of black and white, while its counterpart livens things up a bit with an eccentric color palette.
Responsible for the latter in this duo is the “Desert Ore” aesthetic you see pictured here, with an earth-colored upper that comes contrasted by a Bright Mango midfoot check as well as hits of Hyper Jade on its signature zip-tie and partially detached square patch. Keeping in line with his recent slue of releases, this 90 opts to replace its customary leather textiles with swathes of nubuck, suede, and synthetic ripstop to create an even more souped up aura of luxury.
With official images having finally been revealed, you can expect pairs of these Desert Ore-colored Off-White 90s to touch down at select global retailers on January 17th in both men and toddler sizes. Since this is expected to be Abloh’s final retail Nike drop for quite some time, the consumer interest will be quite high, so keep it locked for a comprehensive store list to help you secure a pair on drop day.
Retailing at 160€ , you can find the Off-White x Nike Air Max 90 “Desert Ore” at Nike SNEAKRS on January 17th.
