At this point, it's no secret that Virgil Abloh's next Off-White x Air Jordan 1 is of the "UNC" blue variety, yet the collaboration has yet to be formally confirmed by the man himself—until now.

Ahead of the 2018 Met Gala, Abloh took to Instagram to tease the colorway, which has up until now only been seen on a handful of leak accounts and a recent post by Victor Cruz

As usual, the newly appointed Louis Vuitton menswear designer added a personal touch to the sneakers, scrawling "for red carpet only" across the medial side of the left shoe. Abloh debuted his first Off-White x Air Jordan 1 at last year's Met Gala.

The Off-White x Air Jordan 1 "UNC" is expected to release on June 9, 2018.
