Virgil Abloh introduced “The Ten” collection with Nike back in 2017 and ever since then it seemed that the sneaker industry shifted in a way that was geared more towards creativity than just putting out colorways. Abloh’s design scheme seemed to focus on the deconstructed aspects of the sneaker as we saw almost a “rough completion” of the overall silhouette that really made it stand out from a normal or general release.
The collab on the Jordan 5 model features Abloh’s signature design on the classic “Metallic Black” makeover utilizing a slightly translucent upper, with holes added on the mid-foot caging, ankle area and along the left side of the tongue. The traditional Beaverton, Oregon branding can be seen in it’s usual spot on the side under the cage. For those looking to pick up a pair, they will be releasing on Nike.com and at select retailers for $225 during NBA All-Star Weekend on February 15th.
