The 55-year-old Takashi Murakami is one of Japan's most celebrated artists. However, this doesn't make him immune to catching a case of that persistent Off-White virus that's been spreading through the streetwear community. Taking to Instagram, Murakami seemed pretty satisfied with the latest addition to his sneaker collection: a pair of custom Off-White x Air Jordan 1s.
We can't blame Murakami for flexing several shots of these on the 'Gram. We'd bet a lot of money that even the commenters most dedicated to spewing hate whenever Virgil Abloh's colab with Nike is mentioned would be stoked to snap up these sought-after sharpie customs.
Will Abloh and Murakami's friendship blossom into an collaborative venture? Considering Virgil's handed out quite a few of these to friends and celebrities, probably not. But we can hope.
