Virgil Abloh x Air Jordan 1 “Powder Blue” Qualifies as our Favorite Sneaker

30 May 2018

Off-White x Jordan 1 UNC Blue is gonna be released soon & we love it!

Sneakers are fascinating, frankly, I’ve never met anyone who isn’t at least a bit a sneakerhead, from co-workers, to your dad, everyone appreciates a nice pair of sneakers, no matter the price-tag.

One thing we’ve been struggling with is finding premium pieces that fit our Alux.com aesthetic.. until now.

As you know, we take great pride in the ”Alux Blue” and even wanted to make our own custom sneakers just so we can rock it when we travel, happily for us, Virgil Abloh took care of this with his latest release in partnership with Nike.

The UNC-inspired edition rocks what they call the “Powder Blue” on its deconstructed overlay with white underlays, which I’ve personally been a fan of since I first saw it.

“AIR” returns to the midsole with further industrial branding found on each medial side.

Signature Off-White™ nods return through its red zip-tie, shifted logos and unfinished look, making it one of the most recognizable sneakers out there. The release has been shared on numerous Nike calendars worldwide and it was expected to drop today, 30th May, with a price tag of $190 if you were quick enough to cop it.

We’re expecting the resellers to go crazy for this new edition so it’s unlikely you’ll be able to find any of these at the proposed price-tag.

Here’s what the shoe looks like! Ain’t it perfect for Alux?

If you want to test your knowledge on how well you know the Nike brand, we made this video:

Technically, you should be able to buy a pair on Nike’s website, as the international release date is 2018-06-23, but good luck with that.

Or you could try on eBay & Amazon, but be ready to pay a premium, we’ve seen a pair on sale for $900.
