Virgil Abloh & Nike Have Released the “TEXTBOOK” Online: Read Now

Virgil Abloh & Nike Have Released the

Nike and Virgil Abloh have completed their “The Ten” series of sneakers with the release of the translucent OFF-WHITE x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star 70s. And while many missed out on copping anything from this epic sneaker collaboration, everyone can now access TEXTBOOK, a 258-page chronicle of the series’ production — for free.

The PDF of TEXTBOOK features behind the scenes images of the creative process that went into the OFF-WHITE x Nike “TEN ICONS RECONSTRUCTED” collection, the first part of which dropped last fall. Snaps of Abloh himself and the shoes sit among quotes and descriptions of the series’ creation. The book’s foreword also credits late streetwear scholar and journalist Gary Warnett for research and background stories on each icon reconstructed.

Be sure to check out the selection of images above and access the book below.
