Virgil Abloh signed Air Jordan 1 x Off-White “UNC” sneakers, signed Louis Vuitton sneakers, and more, hit auction block

Virgil Abloh signed Nike and Louis Vuitton sneakers up for auction

Back in late November, the fashion industry lost one of their most iconic designers of all-time, in Virgil Abloh. At the time, he had been battling a rare form of cancer, for several years. Abloh was the creative director at Louis Vuitton at the time, as well as the founder of Off-White.

Abloh did plenty of collaborations with Louis Vuitton and Nike, and created some very impressive sneakers. Now, several of these are hitting the auction block, according to TMZ. This comes after 200 pairs of Abloh’s LV Air Force 1s, sold for $25.3 million, earlier this year.

One pair that is available to bid on, is the Air Jordan 1 x OFF-WHITE “UNC.” It reads “Off-White For Nike” on the sneaker, as well as “Air Jordan 1,” Beaverton, OR. Abloh also signed “Virgil 2018” on the sole of the sneaker. Bidding for this is said to have passed $10,000, at this point.

Another pair of sneakers by Abloh available, is the green and yellow Louis Vuitton trainers. On the side of the sneaker, it’s signed “Air Abloh.” Bidding for these have since passed $12,000.

In addition to these two sneakers, fans can bid on a complete package of “The Ten.” These are the first 10 sneakers that Abloh designed with Nike, after joining them in 2017. These are expected to be sold for $40,000.

This auction will last through April 5. Bids can be submitted through Sotheby’s Modern Collectibles.
