With little warning, Virgil Abloh’s new collaboration with New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Nike released Saturday at the MoMA on a first come, first served basis. The surprise Air Force 1 Low release was sold for a retail price of $175, but due to its extremely limited nature, it’s gone on to fetch a small fortune on the secondary market.
Aesthetically, the black and silver sneaker style is has more in common with the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 released exclusively at ComplexCon in November than the rest of Abloh’s Off-White x Nike “The Ten” collection.
Today only! These limited edition #MoMAExclusive Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Sneakers by @VirgilAbloh are available only at MoMA Design Store, 44 West 53rd Street. This design is a celebration of the iconic Nike Air Force 1 sneaker, now celebrating its 35th anniversary and featured in MoMA’s exhibition “Items: Is Fashion Modern?” Each pair also comes with a complimentary MoMA pass to view the exhibition. Doors open at 8 am. #MoMADesignStore #nikeairforce1 #virgilabloh
The look features a black leather upper with a silver Swoosh overlay in cracked leather along with unfinished edges which expose the foam shoe’s padding. Elsewhere, signature Off-White details such as a zip-tie and bold “Air” text finish off the design.
The Off-White x MoMA x Nike Air Force 1 sneakers were released Saturday at the MoMA Design Store in New York City at 8 a.m. ET. On eBay, the limited-edition style is listed for as much as $2,199.99, with the lowest asking price set at $999.99.
