Louis Vuitton Releases Nine of Abloh’s Air Force 1s

Nine editions of the Louis Vuitton and Nike “Air Force 1” by the late Virgil Abloh are set to be released in stores today.

Designed for Louis Vuitton’s spring 2022 menswear collection, the sneakers feature “signature insignia of the Maison combined with the sneaker’s classic codes.”

Abloh served as the French fashion label’s artistic director for menswear from 2018 until his sudden passing in November 2021.

If sneakerheads are lucky enough to get their hands on the designer Air Forces, they’ll be looking at a (starting) price tag of US$2,750, approximately A$3,830.

The nine editions include an all-white rendition, a metallic gold pair and a red colourway, all with the classic “AIR” motifs and Louis Vuitton branding.

In the lead up to the release, Louis Vuitton displayed all 47 of the designs created for the spring collection at an exhibition hosted in Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse in Brooklyn last week.

Earlier this year, Sotheby’s auctioned off 200 special edition pairs of Louis Vuitton and Nike “Air Force 1” by Virgil Abloh sneakers, making more than A$35 million in sales.
