When we look back on 2017, Virgil Abloh’s ‘The Ten’ will be the year’s defining collaboration. No other release has had the same impact or hype around it, but not only that - it’s gone on for so damn long! There have been many chances (however slim) to get pairs, and it’s a testament to Abloh’s influence and the designs' undeniable appeal that people are still clamouring to cop.
Now we’re getting another go with releases staggered from October through to November. Retailers are posting their raffle schedules now with detailed info on when you can put your name down.
First up will be the Air Jordan 1 and Blazer on October 28; the last of 2017 will be the Air Force 1 and Air Max 97 on November 4. Those seeking the All Star will have their patience tested – the release is now scheduled for early 2018.
