Sneaker Press Release Updates January 22, 2022
Despite passing away from an aggressive form of cancer on November 28, 2021, Virgil Abloh continues to make an impact on the world of sneakers and fashion. The extent of what he had in store for his partnership with NIKE, Inc. will likely never be disclosed, but the Louis Vuitton Air Force 1 collection he previewed last summer made headlines. newspapers last week. Sotheby’s auction of a 200-pair limited version of Abloh’s alleged latest Nike Air Force 1 began on January 26 and received bids of up to $70,000 for lot 178, marking a landmark moment in the 40-year history of the sneaker. With 10 days left in the auction, it’s very possible that at least one pair of the leader Off-White’s three-way collaboration with LV and the Swoosh will fetch US$100,000 or more.

Upcoming collaborations with Gnarhunters and collections covered cashmere shoes online demonstrate that Nike is not yet ready to put the 37-year-old design on the shelves.
Over the past 73 years, adidas has captivated global audiences both alone and with select extended family members. Ye – the being formerly known as “Kanye West” – is arguably the brand’s most important collaborator over the past 10 years, but a handful of other creatives, artists and influencers who have teamed up to German society earn their stripes on their own. rhythm. Among them, Bad Bunny and Beyoncé, the former having recently (indirectly) unveiled an adidas Forum Powerphase. It’s unclear if and when the Puerto Rican reggaetonero will rival the Yeezy lineup. The 27-year-old has put his birth name (Benito) on his latest Three Stripes collaboration though, which is a step in the right direction.
Elsewhere in the sneaker world, Chicago’s Notre boutique unveiled a Vans OG Style 36 LX set featuring its now-signature handshake motif, while the James Whitner-helmed Social Status paired with a new colorway of the Nike. Air Max Penny 1 wearing interchangeable profile swooshes. .
