The plot thickens on the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 project, as another pair designed by brand leader Virgil Abloh has emerged. This one again features literal and redundant branding, appearing here in the form of "AIR" text along the midsole and "SHOELACE" hits on the laces.

What's unclear at this point is whether this is an actual collaboration with Nike. If rumors are to believed there is indeed an Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 on the way, but this pair looks rather like a custom—upon close inspection it appears that a standard Swoosh was ripped off before the sliver one was placed on.

Both of the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1s out there have been spotted at Art Basel in Miami. Per Off-White's Instagram, these sneakers were worn by staff at the brand's pop-up in Miami.

Nike Sportswear has been very focused on the Air Force 1 as of late, bringing cherished pairs back and creating coveted collaborations.
