Virgil Abloh is the man of the hour when it comes to collaborations this year, with Nike being only the latest of brands to drop a collection with the Off White designer. Warby Parker and Levi’s have both released projects in collaboration with Abloh and even Ikea is jumping on the bandwagon.
While it’s no surprise that hypebeasts were chomping at the bit to get their hands on the new Nike collaboration, it’s the OG sneaker heads that seem to be the biggest fans.
The collaboration comes in two installations, the “REVEALING” pack being the first, which dropped at the beginning of this month and the “GHOSTING” pack which will being dropping in November.
“REVEALING” offers five sneaker styles which include the Air Max 90, the Air VaporMax, the Blazer Mid, the Air Presto, and the Air Jordan 1.
“GHOSTING” will offer five more styles, including the Air Force 1, the Air Max 97, the React Hyperdunk, the Zoom Vaporfly, and even a Chuck Taylor All-Star. Both halves of the collection will be available at NikeLab stores.
Since the release of “REVEALING” collaboration multiple athletes, including LeBron James and Roger Federer, have been spotted out in the sneakers.

Roger Federer plays tennis in the Air Jordan Ones from the “REVEALING” pack.
While some athletes were lucky enough to have been gifted their pair of sneakers before the actual release dates. Us normal folk will have to work to get our hands on a pair. Here’s a look at what’s out now:
The Nike Air Jordan One
My personal favorite, The Nike Air Max 90
The Nike Air Presto
The Nike Blazer Mid
The Nike Air VaporMax
As is the case with many high profile sneaker collaborations, it is slightly easier to get a pair from the Off White x Nike collection as it is to hit the lottery. Happy hunting.
