First Look at the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid "Grim Reaper"

Inspired by one of the sneaker industry's holiest grails.

Following the release of the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid "Pine Green," we're now taking our very first look at the never-before-seen Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid "Grim Reaper." Set to be Virgil Abloh's fifth take on the mid-cut Air Force 1, following the "Sheed" that we previewed last month, this colorway seems to pay homage to one of the sneaker industry's holiest grails - but with a sinister twist.

Featuring a full leather construction, this Air Force 1 Mid boasts a yellow and white color combination which seems to nod to the legendary Off-White x Air Jordan 1 High OG "Canary Yellow" that we all lusted over back in 2020. Two sets of laces tie everything together complete with a toggle switch system for an extra rugged look and feel, and other deconstructed details like the quoted text, zip tie, and stitched on Nike Swoosh also make a cameo here.

Underfoot, the Air midsole has been totally reworked from the ground up, and it's lined with a series of rubber spikes which is inspired by Off-White's "Track & Field" collection from 2019. The shoe is then rounded off with a Grim Reaper graphic that's embroidered around the heel, finalizing the design.

Not much else is known about the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Mid "Grim Reaper" at this moment in time, so make sure you keep it locked at Ox Street to for all of the latest updates as they develop. While you're here, here's everything we know so far about the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 "Paris"!
