While sneakerheads were busy attempting to secure today’s Off-White x Air Jordan 5 release through SNKRS, the shoe’s creator debuted a previously unseen colorway of his collaboration out of nowhere.
After photos began making rounds on social medial earlier in the day, Virgil Abloh took to his own Instagram with a candid look at the aforementioned pair, styled in sail and red with similar vintage effects on the upper and sole. As he’s known to do, Abloh also went full DIY mode on his pair, using a knife to cut the ‘windows’ out, which he told The Undefeated is part of his 100% design concept.
Though not confirmed, it’s been rumored that a “Sail” Off-White x Air Jordan 5 will release at some point later this year. Stick with Sole Collector for updates as they become available.
