If the rumors are true, Virgil Abloh’s Off-White x Nike line is going to get much more colorful. Just hitting the internet this week is a never-before-seen edition of the Off-White x Nike Blazer with a gradient-colored sole.
Sneaker leaker Instagram account 2muchsol3 previewed the sneaker in full.
The upper features a simple white-and-black combination, much like Abloh’s initial edition of the Blazer released within “The Ten” collection. But once you get down to the sole, you notice a drastic change. The new rendition features a pink to purple to white gradient from the heel to the toe on the midsole, which is then repeated on the translucent outsole.
The look is reminiscent of Nike’s “Be True” collection for 2018 celebrating the LGBTQ community, which makes one wonder if the colorful Blazer could be associated with the initiative for next year.
Either way, the speculated sneaker is a departure from Abloh’s designs for the Swoosh so far, which have all featured relatively simple black-and-white color combinations, aside from the bright orange coloration of the Off-White x Nike Zoom Fly Mercurial.
This colorful Blazer has not been confirmed as authentic by either Abloh or Nike. Thus, it is not yet known when or if it will actually will be released.
