Sneaker of the Year Goes to Virgil Abloh

Date: October 30 2017

By: Marfell


Last week we said Virgil Abloh’s 'The Ten' will be the defining collaboration of 2017. Footwear News, however, took the sentiment a step further and declared The Ten's Air Jordan 1 to be the year's best sneaker. And you'll hear no argument from us.

The Jay is largely considered the collection's crowning jewel. It was so highly coveted that even His Airness himself requested a pair.

The awards ceremony won’t take place until November 28, and Abloh is yet to comment. While you're waiting, you should check out which pairs from the collection you can still buy.
