Off-White took to Twitter to make the announcement. Officially named as the “QUEEN” sneaker, the silhouette is a Virgil Abloh-designed NikeCourt release.
There is still not much information on the silhouette. However, the image that came with Off-White’s tweet featured the text “c. 2018” which means that the shoe will drop this year.
Another account, @py_rates, reports that the collaboration will have two colorways. These are “Gray Fog/Black” and “Purple Rise/Black.”
The colorways will be on a new model of the Nike Flare, which will allegedly be named Flare 2. Moreover, the size run will also extend from U.S. 5 to U.S. 12, apparently.

Meanwhile, Off-White and Nike created a custom tie-dye job for the Air Presto. The duo also placed colored rhinestones on the iteration.
The colorful custom creation features multiple colors on the upper. He also added orange laces, which makes it somewhat reminiscent to that of Off-White’s sneakers.
The designer also applied his trademark rhinestones to the “AIR” stamp on the heel’s strap. This is what he has always done previously on denim and tees.
