Is Virgil Abloh Revising the Air Jordan 1 in the Classic University Blue Colourway?

Virgil Abloh’s unique take on the classics could be set to continue with the VIRGIL ABLOH x NIKE AIR JORDAN 1 UNIVERSITY BLUE, if this mock-up is anything to go by.

The original 1985 release of the Air Jordan 1 will be forever tied in with tales of rule-breaking, due to its unorthodox styling and colour scheme. So perhaps it’s the perfect vehicle for the inside-out and layered restyling that’s been bestowed upon it on the rendering here.

The Jordan 1 became the poster child of The Ten collection, and this rendering utilises the classic University Blue colour scheme. With the same deconstructed sections, graphic overlays and oversized Swoosh, this results in a clean look that still holds true to the original aesthetic.

The VIRGIL ABLOH x NIKE AIR JORDAN 1 UNIVERSITY BLUE is still speculative and could drop sometime in 2018: as always, keep checking The Drop Date for any confirmed details as soon as they’re official. Until then, click the banner below to check the latest releases at NIKE ahead of the drop.
