Virgil Abloh has customized pairs for just about each one of his industry friends. Now, a retail release of the Off-White x Air Jordan 1 Retro is imminent. Damnn Ericka is back with an in-hand review of the upcoming drop, giving us a detailed look at a confirmed legit pair and the first glimpse of the shoe's unique packaging.
Much like the sneaker, the box will be a bit unorthodox—inside out in this case. The top of the lid reads "Jumpman," and when opened, the interior is the current black and gold retro box. Custom wrapping paper is also included. Images of a pair with an OG-style box surfaced back in May, which not only calls its authenticity into question, but also the rumored $350 price tag.
This pair was shipped directly from Jordan Brand, which means the release is near, though an official date remains unannounced. Based on what she's been seeing, Ericka speculates that it could go down sometime in early September. We'll keep you posted on that in the coming weeks.
