This lot features a Virgil Abloh signed and designed Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High Off-White ‘UNC’. Inspired by Michael Jordan’s alma mater, the University of North Carolina, the high-top pair features the iconic UNC Tar Heels blue and white.

The design carries a two-tone composition, with a white leather base and dark powder blue overlays. Additionally, the pair features detached wings, a floating swoosh, orange accents, a red zip tie, and “OFF-WHITE for NIKE” printed on the inner sidewalls. The look is completed with “AIR” on the midsole, and “SHOELACES” printed on the laces, design details Virgil is known for. 

Prior to Virgil’s passing on November 28 2021, he was the Louis Vuitton Men’s Artistic Director. The Nike Air Jordan 1 x OFF-WHITE Retro High OG ‘UNC’ was Virgil’s third deconstructed take on the classic Air Jordan 1 silhouette. All the carefully-crafted design attributes found in this pair were some of the details that contributed to Virgil’s timeless success and ability to convey a handmade quality to his sneaker designs. 

Virgil’s signature is featured on the lateral side of the left sneaker in orange, and the signed year is on the medial side of the left sneaker in orange. These shoes are accompanied by a letter from James Spence Authenticated in regards to the signature.
