“Temporary,” the designer captioned a teaser Instagram photo on Sunday.
The black sneakers feature shaky stitching, a metallic swoosh, and white shoelaces aptly emblazoned: “shoelaces.”
There have been some previews that have leaked, showing its progression. Taking to Twitter earlier this month,A$AP Bari hinted that the new kicks could drop sometime this year, captioning an early photo, “Nike… 2017.”
Meanwhile, Abloh presented white wide-leg, over-the-knee boots stamped with “For Walking” at Paris Fashion Week earlier this month.
In a previous interview with Footwear News, Abloh said he was always fascinated by sneakers.
“As a kid, I was always into sneakers and footwear,” he recalled. “Jordans and skate shoes were always my go-to as a teenager.”
The designer previously released a collaboration with Umbro on sneakers and said he was inspired by “a particular U.K. style of dress and was after the idea of designing something generic.”
