Will we see an official release of the model this year?
Back in March of last year, Virgil Abloh, the boss behind OFF-WHITE, ended the well-loved All-Star Weekend with a big bang. Also this year the designer uses the stage of the festivities to present one of his latest creations to the public with the OFF-WHITE Air Force 1 Canary Yellow.
The Canary Yellow Colourway was last seen on the Jordan 1 and is now unofficially confirmed. It is all the more gratifying that the OFF-WHITE Air Force 1 Canary Yellow is now the first model in this color to be confirmed. After all, it can be assumed that not only LeBron James should get a pair, because why else would you make such a fuss about the shoe?
As proof of the upcoming release, Virgil Abloh can be seen wearing the shoe himself – just as he is getting the pair ready for Mister LeBron James. Abloh is seen holding a sharpie, meticulously writing on the laces, leaving the inscriptions “BLACK LIVES MATTER”, “LE BRON” and “VIRGIL WAS HERE” on the midsoles. Otherwise, the model is actually quite familiar to us, because apart from the other colourway, the shoe has remained the same in its style. Silver Swoosh, Helvetica lettering on the side – never change a winning team!
Just take a quick look at the following pictures and let us know what you think about the shoe. It's best to check out our app and all of our other social media channels! So you won't miss any more news in the future.
Here are the promised pictures from the All Star Weekend. By the way, the release is planned for July.
