After getting a glimpse at Virgil Abloh's next Air Jordan 1 project, thanks to an on-foot picture of his close friend and model Bloody Osiris, the designer's all-white rendition of his deconstructed Air Jordan 1 made its official debut at Off-White's "Business Casual" runway show at Paris Fashion Week alongside the rest of his Fall 2018 collection today.
While there has been controversy surrounding the validity of past leaks, these shots come straight from the source. Photos from backstage at Abloh's show give the best look yet at the upcoming sneaker. This pair uses the same materials seen on the original "Chicago" version, but opts for white and cream color blocking. Another switch up is that the zip tie on this pair appears to be light blue instead of red. Aside from these changes, the rest of the shoe's intricate details appear to transfer over to the second release.
While the sneaker has made its runway debut, Abloh and Nike have not dropped an official release date yet. Various rumors indicate that customers could be able to get their hands on a pair as early as February 2018.
As was the case with the last go-round, some of Abloh's friends and family are already showing off their own customized pairs on social media, like now-former Louis Vuitton creative director Kim Jones who has "AIR JONES" and "VIRGIL WAS HERE" written on his outsoles in black marker.
