French Designer Makes Off-White™ x Nike’s “The Ten” UpTempo

Published

on

After Supreme revisited the shoes, it’s french designer The Golden Shape turns to Nike x Off White to give it their twist to the legendary sneaker.

Abloh was given “Shoe of the Year” at the FNAA for his collaborative work with Nike, on the Air Jordan 1 that was released back in September. After taking on ten classic Nike sneakers, French creator The Golden Shape decided to add his twist on legendary kicks. The shoes are so realistics that even our expert friends at hypebeast could thought Abloh was adding two more silhouettes to ‘The Ten’ collection.

The 27 Year-old designer is actually creating a name for himself in the sneaker industry, as it hasn’t been the first time that he creates a buzz from his living room’s desk in Paris.

Few weeks ago the sneaker and Spreme community reacted to his version of the Air Mag in a ‘Desert blue Camo’ stirring people’s passion.

Today he is back with two new silhouette, and despite featuring only his Uptempo twist in the headline, he also gave the air max plus its own Off White version.

Inspired by the ‘Ghosting’ color palette, the two pair come in full white from the actual ‘The Ten’ collection, with every details created by virgil, such as the branded “SHOELACE” and the orange tag in the lace hole. What striked us the most is the shape of the letters on the Up-tempos that look almost real.

Getting close to reality is his goal and the mock-ups are neat and precise. However they are not ‘real’, the young artist could get himself a job in the Nike studio soon.

Indisputable showstopper of the year, the Air Dior result of the collaboration between the iconic sport shoes brand and Dior Fashion Creative director Kim Jones is soon arriving to some selected shelves around the globe sometime during next month.

Rumored to be produced in a limited quantity of 8.500 units, the aggressively teased hightop sneaker has been on every sneaker enthusiasts’ mind during the Dior private party and reveal that took place in Miami during art basel, as many looking to pick up the somehow reasonably expensive Dior Jordan 1 for the $2000 USD price tag.

Now reselling for as low as a brand new city car could go for, the opulent signature, which is poised to take both low and high-top shapes, bears Italian-made leathers, the high-end Dior imprint’s signature monogram, modified Wings iconography and an imprint of the monogram under the sole.

Warning: No matters how tempting it could seem, we highly advise not to buy them through internet but in person with a well respected resseller. While the sneakers could be a ressell at as high as $90K & + on StockX, keep in mind that counterfeiter have tried their hand on millions of AF1, they will not have a hard time replacing the suede by high-quality leather and high quality imprints; So we advise, if you ever feel like spending a grid on this grail you demand to met at the nearest Dior store to check if the resseller is a registred customer or they have track of the serial number corresponding to the shoe.

There is one sure thing, the hype the shoe generated will surely reconcile everyone that it will be as hard to get your hand on the kicks as it was to lay hand on a the Supreme x Louis Vuitton collaboration, therefor, it is only right but to agree that V.I.P customers from the Dior stores and well-connected ressellers will lay hands on those sumptuous kicks before anyone does.
