Everything We Know so Far About the Nike c/o Virgil Abloh ‘Athlete in Progress’ Collection

Virgil Abloh presents his “Athlete in Progress” sneaker and apparel collection for Nike. The collection was debuted in Paris last September as part of the Off-White Spring/Summer 2019 runway show with athletes like the Belgian Nafi Thiam, but also Dina Asher Smith, Vashti Cunningham, Cecilia Yeung, English Gardner and more were part of the runway show.

“I started talking with Nike about this women’s running project last summer and at the time, I was very much inspired by the inherent aesthetic of track and field athletes. As a result, I invited some of Nike’s elite track and field champions to participate in my SS19 Off-White runway show as the natural forerunner to developing and showcasing the collection,” says Abloh.

“Athlete in Progress” Collection

The Nike c/o Virgil Abloh “Athlete in Progress” collection salutes the unbreakable confidence held by runners. Virgil Abloh taps Nike’s rich heritage in track and field. The assortment balances performance product with post-run apparel and footwear inspired by Nike’s storied running shoe designs.

With 800-meter champion Caster Semenya, the collection readies for the initial limited release. It will include a run top and tight, and the Nike x Off-White Zoom Terra Kiger 5.

Release dates

The Nike c/o Virgil Abloh “Athlete in Progress” collection releases globally on June 27. An exclusive pre-sale of the collection will be announced in the coming weeks.
