Virgil Abloh Signing of Nike x Off-White “Top Ten” Kicks @ Dedece Sydney

Virgil Abloh Signing of Nike x Off-White “Top Ten” Kicks @ Dedece Sydney

On a quiet Darlinghurst street last week, hundreds of young, mostly male Sneakerheads ( many still in their school uniforms having ducked away early from school ) patiently lined up for some 4-6 hours ( even as some light rain fell ) to meet their idol, Virgil Abloh, the introverted Chicago native.

Some of them had even journeyed to Sydney from inter-state to the official Supply ” Pop Up” Store installation space – thus inadvertently becoming the personification of Nike’s most fundamental principle: ‘Just Do It’.

All those in line were in high spirits, hoping to have their Abloh x Off-White iterations of the Nike “Top Ten” kicks autographed by Virgil
