Just hours removed from the official debut of several new Off-White x Nikes, Virgil Abloh is back at it with new teasers of his first Louis Vuitton sneaker design.

With a design that takes noticeable cues from the Air Jordan 3—namely the sole, colorway, and some of the lines on the upper—this high-top is the luxury fashion house's first Abloh-designed sneaker since the Off-White founder became Louis Vuitton's artistic director of menswear in March.

In addition to the preview, Abloh shared another photo of ASAP Rocky wearing the sneakers alongside Playboi Carti. The strap-equipped high-top uses a black, grey, white, and red color scheme and boasts similarities to a mid-top sketch which was recently shared on Abloh's Instagram story.

There's currently no release information available for this pair, but more details should be revealed soon as Louis Vuitton's men's Spring/Summer 2019 show takes place tomorrow from Paris Fashion Week.
