The year 2021 is shaping up to be a big one for the sneaker industry, with some of the most exclusive colorways and highly awaited partnerships on the way. One of the most significant partnerships between Off-White founder Virgil Abloh and sneaker conglomerate Nike has yet to be announced.
After a quiet start to the year following the release of Virgil Abloh's "PUBLIC DOMAIN," the renowned fashion designer will drop an entire collection of 20 Off-White Nike Dunk Lows, according to sneaker insiders. This overwhelming Nike Dunk Low collection is fittingly dubbed "The 20." The Off-White designer and frequent Nike/Air Jordan collaborator has done everything to leave his mark on the fashion scene, starting with the remarkable collection released in 2017 titled "The Ten." The famous ten collection prominently featured a long-range of iconic sneaker models that included the famous Off-White Air Jordan 1 Chicago and Air Presto.
Mockups for the highly anticipated 20 shoe collection of unique Nike Dunk Low colorways were released via py_leaks to present an idea of what they might look like. The mockups presented the sneakers as vibrant two-toned pairs that contrast each other neatly. Further details of the shoes include an exposed tongue, traditional "SHOELACES" marked lacing system displayed with firm trail-like Flywire cord laces alongside the traditionally classic Swoosh on the lateral side.
Although Virgil criticized these mockups by hilariously poking fun at the presented colorways in an Instagram post, saying:
"I couldn't pick this many bad colorways if I tried."
The Off-White x Nike Dunk Low "THE 20" collaboration will reportedly arrive sometime in the fall season.
