Nike has joined forces with Off-White

Words by Nicole La Ruffa

Football fever.

With the Fifa World Cup only days away, Nike’s latest football-inspired collab seems very fitting.

The sportswear brand has teamed up with Off-White for a collection that merges lifestyle with sports branding.

The Football, Mon Amour range is inspired by Virgil Abloh’s memories of playing high-school football and taking cues from the sponsor prints plastered over the uniforms of European sports teams.

Leading the range is the Flyknit Zoom Fly, which ties back to Abloh’s recent rendition of the Mercurial shoe. You can also expect jerseys, jackets and sports gear, due to land on June 15.

In another nod to his playing years, all the numbers featured in the range refer to those that Abloh has sported himself. As well, the jerseys’ black-and-white checkerboard print alludes to the Czech stripes and team’s logo.

You can shop the Football, Mon Amour collection from the Supply Store from June 15.
