Virgil Abloh designed 10! Nike sneakers this year, and it’s hard to pick which one is the best. So let’s take a moment to recognize his collection with Nike and what it meant for sneakers this year. Not only did Abloh put his design aesthetic on each shoe, but he completely deconstructed 10 new and old sneakers, ranging from the Air Jordan 1 to the VaporMax. If you’re asking me, I’d say the Presto was the best of the bunch, but it was proof that rappers and artists have taken over the sneaker space. And word is that the collaboration between the two is going to keep on going in 2018. The most impressive part of Abloh doing all the shoes wasn’t the actual product itself, but the way it was rolled out, with the likes of Drake and Michael Jordan getting their own custom pairs from Virgil. It was an event that no brand could beat.
