It’s surprising to note that Virgil Abloh has never made a signature Nike sneaker. Sure he’s added his Off-White notes to many of the Swoosh’s silhouettes but never made his own sneaker.The Nike Rubber Dunk Green Strike is one of three from a pack to debut the fashion designer’s first signature sneaker, putting him in the space of fellow fashion designers Kanye West and Jerry Lorenzo, as each worked with Nike to create something from scratch.
As its name suggests, the upper is composed of rubber accents throughout with a mix of synthetic leather and mesh for breathability. The raw-edged tongue adds that deconstructed look that’s consistent with other Off-White and Nike collabs. Finally, the midsole continues the rubber theme with rubber enclosures around the Air Bubble unit.
The Nike Air Rubber Dunk Off-White Green Strike released in October of 2020.
