The exhibition will display 47 Air Force 1 designs by Virgil Abloh. These sneakers were a part of his last project before he died in November 2021. He always tried to “make a global community regardless of the elitism or sort of territorial-ness that can happen in subculture”, as he said in an interview with Vogue.
Nine of the 47 Air Forces will be up for sale. The sneakers are a marriage of the aesthetics by Virgil Abloh, the heritage design of Nike, and the iconography of Luis Vuitton. Spoiler alert: they are all limited editions, so don’t get your hopes up.
