The late Virgil Abloh has certainly given us a ton of exciting sneakers released with and without the Swoosh. However, collaborations with Nike, for the most part, have been nothing less than incredible.
There are way too many great sneakers to choose from, but we’ve compiled a list of what we believe are the best in terms of their resale values and hype factor. Before we get into the list, to commemorate the late founder of -mid-graffiti/" target="_blank" data-type="post" data-id="1067265" rel="noreferrer noopener">Off-White, let’s get into a bit of his history with Nike.
Nike x Off White: History
The man who makes the shoes doesn’t require any introduction. As the creative director of Kanye West’s creative agency, Donda, Virgil Abloh rose to fame in 2010. In 2013, he started his own brand, Off-White.
Since then, he has been appointed artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear line. Abloh has contributed to the emergence of streetwear over the past ten years with his work with Pyrex Vision and Off-White, and he continues to be one of the leading figures in contemporary design.
He has won the admiration of reviewers from a variety of fields and was included in Time’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2018.
For Abloh, working with Nike fulfilled a long-held dream: He relates how, as a youngster, he created Air Jordans and sent them to the Nike design team.
The remake of the Air Jordan was an easy objective given that, as he puts it, “[his] whole design background and attitude originated from the ’90s.”
His makeover was a huge hit. The updated Air Jordan 1 joined Kanye West and Rihanna as previous winners of Footwear News’ 2017 Shoe of the Year award.
Two sets of five shoes each made up “The Ten” drop: “REVEALING,” which included the Air Jordan I, Nike Air Max 90, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air VaporMax, and Nike Blazer Mid; and “GHOSTING,” which featured Converse Chuck Taylor, Nike Zoom Fly SP, Nike Air Force 1 Low, Nike React Hyperdunk 2017, and a Nike Air Max 97.
Today, there are a wide number of off-White and Nike shoes with variating resale values. However, for the most part, all of them are profitable, while some carry insane resale values on the secondary market.
Without further adieu, let’s get right to it!

Probably the only women’s exclusive sneaker on this list, the Off White x Air Jordan 4 Sail was a one-of-a-kind release, and many flocked to grab a pair for themselves. Perhaps unsurprisingly, lots of men wanted a pair, thus driving the resale prices of the biggest sizes extremely high.
Virgil Abloh first showed off these sneakers in his MCA exhibit and at the Off White FW2020 show, and it quickly became apparent that this would be one of 2020’s biggest releases. And it was!
Coming to the design, a Sail hue wraps most of the sneakers with darker bone leather on the toes and lighter sail on the toe boxes extending toward the sides. Throats feature white netting with Sail laces that wrap them up.
Tongues are also Sail leather with lighter tags and grey Jump-Man logos. The heels also feature grey pieces with additional embossed Jordan branding. Side panels compliment the throats with matching netting and transparent triangular heel pieces.
Bone midsoles with “Air” branding in typical Off-White fashion and matching outsoles finish the design.

To further preserve his Figures of Speech exhibit in sneaker history, Virgil Abloh introduced another hue to his cherished collection of Off-White Air Force 1 variations.
These Air Force 1 Low Off-White MCA University Blues were one of Virgil’s many eagerly awaited releases of 2019. Serena Williams was the exclusive recipient of the first pair when they were delivered to her in May 2019.
This Air Force 1 Low Off-White MCA University Blue is one of Virgil’s most coveted items since it only sometimes appears through stash bots and an extremely exclusive raffle at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, where the shoe gets its name.
These sneakers feature a University Blue leather construction that appears on the toes, side panels, and on rears. The perforated toe boxes lead up to matching leather eye stays and throats wrapped up in classic white laces.
Plain tongues and light blue interiors subdue the look to an extent that is contrasted by orange tags and furry white Swooshes on the sides with signature Off-White stitching. Blue midsoles with “Air” text and matching outsoles finish off the design.

This pair is yet another must if you enjoy Virgil Abloh’s creative output and wish to showcase the masterclass Off-White’s creative prowess.

Tongues are also plain here with orange marks on the side, while UNC blue collars with Jordan Wing’s motifs in white complement the design.
Orange tags are also included for additional contrast, while side panels with dark blue Swooshes and orange stitching appearing to keep the piece intact can also be seen. This Off White’s signature touch that many today are fond of.
Sail midsoles with basic “Air” text in Off-White fashion provide extra detail, while University Blue outsoles finish off this iconic design. This is probably one of Off-White’s most well-known collaborative sneakers and will likely continue to be in the future.
On the secondary market, these kicks are worth north of $2,300 per pair, which is a huge gross profit margin had you copped for the retail price of $170 per pair.

Abloh described how the sneaker evolved: “That shoe was all white originally.” “I was in the airport—I was in Newark; I remember it—and I saw someone wearing a white pair of Dunks, and I could not really tell the difference.
“Emergency: The Jordan needs to be in the Chicago color blocking,” he said. That sneaker would have been only a simple, white pair otherwise, and we might be grateful for it.
This Air Jordan 1 High iteration features off-white toes with light blue throats and white laces wrapping them. Large light blue nylon tongues can also be seen contrasted by “Nike Air” branding in orange on the sides.
Collars are also white with debossed Jordan Wings motifs, while blue side panels are overlain by white swooshes attached by Off-White’s signature blue and orange stitching. Light blue tags, Sail midsoles with iconic “Air” textual branding, and white outsoles finish off the design.

One of the most eagerly awaited shoe releases of 2017 was the Off-White x Air Jordan 1 Retro High Chicago. It was the first time Jordan Brand and Virgil Abloh, the designer behind the Milan-based fashion company, had collaborated.
The “The 10” version has the classic Chicago-themed white, black, and varsity red color scheme. Deconstructed leather upper in white, red, and black with the inscription “Off-White for Nike Air Jordan 1, Beaverton, Oregon, USA 1985” on the medial surface.
Collapsible ankle collars with a concealed “85” printed on the inside, an enlarged, off-center Swoosh on the side panels, the word “Air” printed on the midsole, and the term “Shoelaces” placed on the laces are further embellishments.
There is no branding on the tongue that remains plain. Red leather covers the toes, eye stays, and the collar overlays that don black Jordan Wings motifs and black underlays.
Meanwhile, white side panels and toe boxes are contrasted by black Swooshes attached by red and orange stitching in typical Virgil Abloh fashion to finish off the design.
On the secondary market, these sneakers are worth more than gold. On average, resellers have been selling them for prices beyond $5,800 and commonly above $6,000 as well. However, this is still not our number 1 pick!
