Virgil Abloh’s lengthy exploration of the Swoosh brand’s countless archives has fundamentally changed the landscape of the sneaker industry. The Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Low Volt Black departs from Virgil Abloh’s previous Nike designs by emphasizing the neon hues in the Swoosh’s custom palette. This new Volt-toned rendition of one of the most important sneakers in history is quite possibly the Off-White frontman’s loudest take on a Swoosh Brand sneaker to date.
The upper is made of a mix of materials. Mesh fabrics of different mesh sizes make up the upper. The main color of the shoe is electric green. A black Swoosh with electric green stitching reveals Virgil’s trademark text. Helvetica-inspired lettering on the medial side, Cone orange label and other deconstructed elements are essential design elements of the shoe. Part of the suede is used as a modification to participate in the upper design.
