Virgil Abloh’s Nike Air Force 1 returns.

Being a recent part of the late great Virgil Abloh’s work, the LV x AF1 comes in a variety of vibrant colour-ways, with the shoes donning the classic Abloh signature style. This includes the staple quotation marks along the side and the LV monogram canvas. The Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 sneakers redefined the fashion industry’s definition of “iconic” when first seen in the summer of 2021 and again at Virgil Abloh’s final LV runway show.

Too over the top? Hardly: the shoes combine three cultural titans (Louis Vuitton, Virgil Abloh, Nike) into a plethora of special colour-ways both brash and quietly luxe. Due to release in 2021, the unveiling of these sneakers was curtailed after the tragic passing of Louis Vuitton Creative Director, Virgil Abloh. After much speculation, the shoes have seen a release of sorts through luxury goods broker, Sotheby’s. Auction bids are started at $2,000, and peaked at a massive $65,000.

Proceeds from the Sotheby’s auction — which totalled $25.3 million — will benefit Abloh’s Fashion Scholarship Fund for Black students. LV reportedly has several likeminded initiatives to benefit Abloh’s charity planned throughout this year and this auction is only the first.

The Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 will eventually see a limited commercial launch through LV stores, though not until closer to Summer 2022. Did the auction make you want them more? Cop or Not? Who do you think bought them a collector, sneakerhead or museum?
