Additional reporting by Andrea Saadan
After giving us a sneak peek in Paris and Chicago, Nike has finally revealed Virgil Abloh's latest Air Jordan creation for women, as well as where sneaker fans can get their hands on it when it releases at the end of this week.
The new Virgil Abloh Women's Air Jordan IV x Off-White has been designed in a full-grain cream coloured leather, with exposed foam, mesh, and clear textile details adding a contemporary edge to the classic Nike silhouette.
Local fans who want to get their hands on the sneakers can make their purchase on Nike SNKRS' official website for Singapore when it's available for sale this Saturday at 10 am; each pair is priced at $279, according to the website. And like most sneaker drops, expect lots of competition from fellow sneakerheads.

Bold, all-caps imprints label the laces and Air cushioning, with familiar lettering on the medial side detailing the shoe’s Oregon origins. "AIR" is printed above the yellow tinted outsole in the familiar bold text graphics of the Off White brand, while a signature Off-White zip-tie provides the finishing touch.
This pair is only Abloh’s third-ever Jordan Brand silhoutte. The designer, who is also the creative director for Louis Vuitton's menswear collection, is famous for attracting all the hype that surrounds his collaborations, whether it's with fellow designers or other brands. Abloh’s original Jordan 1 was released to much fanfare back in June 2018.
Sneakers from Abloh and Nike's collaboration are globally available at select stockists, including online marketplace StockX, which is a favourite of sneakerheads.
