Born outside of Chicago in Rockford, Illinois (U.S.A.) in 1980, Virgil Abloh is an artist, architect, and fashion designer. After earning a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he obtained a master’s degree in Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology. It was there where Abloh was introduced to a curriculum established by Mies van der Rohe, formed from the notions of Bauhaus, that taught him to combine the fields of art, craft and design. These theories, merged with contemporary culture, make up Abloh’s inter-disciplinary practice today.

True to Virgil Abloh's wide-ranging and open-source take on product development and modification, the Nike x Off-White™ Blazer Low brings together a multi-disciplinary, multi-sport aesthetic. While exploring Nike's archives, Abloh became inspired by iconic basketball, skateboarding and trail running silhouettes, and started to reconsider their shapes and features in a new light.

By bringing together multiple sports and silhouettes, this Blazer Low's distinct makeup underscores Abloh's design language. Through collaborative design sessions and via text message threads — one of Virgil's favorite places to work — with Nike's design team, he became focused on "mixing languages for a new signature," emphasizing how that happens when unrelated elements are brought together unexpectedly. Abloh and his team executed his thought process through the standout TPU heel piece that sits atop the Blazer Low, which draws inspiration from the Air Terra Humara's classic heel shape. To even get to this radical point, at one stage during the design sessions, Abloh directly asked: "Can we… splice the real Humara tooling and fuse it into a vulcanized sole?" This kind of playful verve for new opportunities is what allowed for new possibilities, and with it, the Off-White™ Blazer Low.

Signature Nike x Off-White™ detailing completes the shoe, including an accented over lace, Swoosh tab, exposed foam tongue, and punched-out holes, offering a utilitarian, DIY attitude to a sneaker designed with expert craft, knowledge, and a passion for pushing boundaries.
