Nike continues to honor the remarkable life and enduring influence of Virgil Abloh with the release of two new colorways of the Nike Air Terra Forma this December.
Unveiled in December 2022, the Nike Air Terra Forma first debuted at the “Virgil Abloh: The Codes c/o Architecture” exhibit in Miami. This posthumous showcase revealed unreleased collaborations between the Illinois native and Nike, Inc., drawing attention and admiration from fans and industry insiders alike. The Air Terra Forma, a trail-inspired sneaker-boot hybrid, stands out as Abloh’s only entirely new design for Nike. It encapsulates the essence of Off-White’s signature aesthetics – from zip ties to Helvetica text – while boldly venturing into the realm of exaggerated, trail-informed footwear.
Now, two years after Abloh's untimely passing, his creative spirit is rekindled with the upcoming release of the “Mantra Orange” and “Archaeo Brown” iterations of the Air Terra Forma. While neither Nike, Inc. nor Virgil Abloh’s Estate have disclosed detailed information about these unreleased styles, retailers overseas are gearing up for their release on December 21st. Official photos provide a glimpse into Abloh's brilliant mind, showcasing the unique and impactful design language that he brought to Nike.
These upcoming Off-White Terra Forma pairs are undeniably “Virgil,” serving as a testament to his lasting legacy in the sneaker world. Fans and collectors alike can look forward to detailed shots of these pairs and anticipate their release on Nike SNKRS on December 21.
