Virgil Abloh’s legacy continues with the Air Force 1 Mid. Celebrating 40 years of AF1, he reimagined the legendary silhouette through the futurist lens. Lightweight, airy mesh with woodgrain pattern brings a utilitarian edge, while the spiked outsole connects directly to the ISPA philosophy of "Improvise. Scavenge. Protect. Adapt." And as always, Virgil left room for others to be creative—the design pairs traditional laces with a secondary set that loops through Flywire cables. The result: a modernised and experimental reflection on history's most revered shoe.The Nike x Off-White™️ Air Force 1 Mid campaign is a tribute to Virgil by Public Domain (@arch___itecture) shot at the Seattle Public Library designed by Rem Koolhaas’s Oma.
"We is paying homage to the trilogy of architecture campaigns that Virgil directed for Off-White at Mies Van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion & Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye (shot by Fabien Montique) and Philip Johnson’s Glass House (shot by Viktor Vauthier). These visuals were watershed moments in Virgil's practice where he crystallised that collision of architecture, fashion, and youth culture that became a through-line in his work."
