Nike and Virgil Abloh have officially announced a massive collaborative capsule called The Ten. Featuring ten iconic silhouettes of the Nike, Jordan, and Converse archives, The Ten was completed in an insane ten month span in what summed up to be one of the fastest and most ambitious collaborations ever completed by Nike.
The entire collection is broken up into two categories Revealing and Ghosting. The Revealing set, which was designed to look accessible includes the Air Jordan 1, Nike Air Max 90, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air VaporMax and Nike Blazer Mid. The Ghosting was designed with translucent uppers to further the idea of revealing and unite the second set of silhouettes through common material. It includes the Converse Chuck Taylor, Nike Zoom Fly SP, Nike Air Force 1 Low, Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 and Nike Air Max 97.
Nike will host Nike Off Campus to celebrate The Ten through presentations of the full collection and exchanges about the ideas that inspired it. Nike Off Campus will take place in New York City from September 6 to 8 at 23 Wall Street, NY and in London from September 14 to 19 at NikeLab 1948 LDN.The first five icons of The Ten — the Air Jordan 1, Nike Blazer, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air Max 90 and Nike Air VaporMax — will be pre-released at NikeLab stores in New York City September 9-13,2017.
