Customizer Celebrates Virgil Abloh's Louis Vuitton Appointment With Special Nike Air Jordan 1

To celebrate Virgil Abloh‘s recent appointment as Louis Vuitton’s menswear designer, New York-based artist Ceeze and RelevantCustoms have teamed up for a special-edition Air Jordan 1 sneaker. The “Off-Louis” custom features Louis Vuitton’s signature monogram across its upper, with a complementary tonal brown colorway.

Other features of the sneaker are reminiscent of Abloh’s own Air Jordan 1 collaboration with Nike, including detailing on the medial side inspired by signature Off-White™ branding and exposed stitching on the Swoosh. The custom also features the designer’s hallmark quotation marks, with “LOUIS” appearing on the midsole. Only 10 pairs of the sneaker have been produced and it will be available from Ceeze’s website for $4,000 USD on April 14.
