Nike is collaborating with Off-White founder and creative director Virgil Abloh to launch \u201cThe Ten\u201d, a re-imagining of 10 popular Nike silhouettes that injects humour, DIY elements and Abloh\u2019s groundbreaking creative ethos into each shoe.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe 10 shoes have been divided into two themes. The first, \u201cREVEALING,\u201d is designed to look accessible - hand-cut, open-source and reconstructed. It includes the Air Jordan I, Nike Air Max 90, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air VaporMax and Nike Blazer Mid.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe second, \u201cGHOSTING,\u201d is designed with translucent uppers to further the idea of revealing and unite the second set of silhouettes through common material. It includes the Converse Chuck Taylor, Nike Zoom Fly SP, Nike Air Force 1 Low, Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 and Nike Air Max 97.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nVirgil Abloh\u2019s relationship to Nike began long before he first visited the company\u2019s world headquarters in October 2016. As a teenager, living in Rockford, Illinois, he and his friends sketched shoe ideas and mailed them to Nike. \u201cWe were enamoured with Air Jordans,\u201d says Abloh. \u201cMichael Jordan was larger than life \u2014 he was Superman to me. My entire design background and ethos came from the \u201890s.\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTo celebrate The Ten, Nike will host \u201cNike Off Campus\u201d events in New York City and London with presentations of the full collection and exchanges about the ideas that inspired it. "Nike Off Campus" will take place in New York City from September 6 to 8 at 23 Wall Street and from September 14 to 17 at various locations in East London.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe first five icons of The Ten \u2014 the Air Jordan I, Nike Blazer, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air Max 90 and Nike Air VaporMax \u2014 will be pre-released at NikeLab stores in New York City (Sept. 9-13), London (Sept. 18-22), Milan (Sept. 21-25) and Paris (Sept. 26-30).\r\n\r\nThe full collection including all ten silhouettes will be available in November at NikeLab stores and select retailers worldwide.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
