First appearing in Off-White’s Fall 2020 Runway show, the “Sail” sneaker is the third Off-White x Nike collab, and possibly our favourite. While Virgil Abloh premiered this sneaker in his women’s show, the classic 1989 silhouette and minimalist cream colour palette is easily unisex and perfect for the summer.
The show features the iconic Off-White tag and Helvetica print on the shoelaces and side, translucent detailing on the tongue and heel, and the Air Jordan logo on the tongue. Frayed and raw edges give the shoe a sort of unrefined look that plays with the depth the translucent details create, and Abloh’s use of synthetic overlays and exposed sponge gives the Sail sneakers Abloh’s signature deconstructed look.
If you were able to cop the shoe when it dropped – lucky for you because while the shoe dropped at the reasonable price of $200 USD, it’s now going for more than $1000 on the resale market, and with reason. Head here for a complete list of where to buy the Sail for resale.
