With their current “Heatwave” series, the folks over at Grailed spice up summer slump. While giveaways go down on Mondays, Thursdays belong to highly coveted archive drops. And coming up next is the complete OFF-WHITE x Nike “THE TEN” collection at some of the lowest prices since its debut.
The ten-piece sneaker line-up first launched in the fall of 2017 and was completed with this year’s drop of the Converse Chuck Taylor. Next to the astronomic prices that the shoes fetch in the aftermarket, the collection as a whole also gained wide acclaim for its originality. Virgil Abloh’s distinct rework of nine famous Nike silhouettes and one classic Converse model established an instantly recognizable aesthetic that embodies his bold design approach.
That’s why the special sale event at Grailed isn’t all about the hype and resale craze, but also the actual design. As Grailed Brand Director Lawrence Schlossman explains further:
“Our Heatwave campaign is all about our community, showing them just how deep our sneaker brand and inventory catalog runs. For this week’s sneaker theme, we wanted to pull the curtain back on high-fashion and streetwear sneakers inspired by classic silhouettes. Our goal is to educate fans, both new and old, on the DNA behind their favorite kicks.”
